Take command of the last living humans as you are thrust into intergalactic affairs you know nothing about.
Will your ragtag band of survivors be able to save the galaxy?

This game was inspired by Star Control II (despite having different game mechanics), and emphasizes exploration and resource management. Be sure to check out every star system, as there's often something there other than mining possibilities. The game is randomly generated each time, and even the side-quests can be different, so it will take multiple plays to see everything! Enjoy!

awesome game. gives me the star control 2 feeling. genius idea to bring in the new fighting thingy. love it. its crazy i didn't read anything about this on the ur-quan masters discussion board forums.

captivating and creative

I loved this game, everything about it sucked me in and kept me entertained until the end. I think it speaks volumes for a games content when it can make you feel enveloped by the atmospher even when the visuals are somewhat lacking. Keep up the amazing work.

only rated 3.52? lolwut?

I definitely haven't seen any flash game like this before. A must play for any fan of Star Control II's space exploration and resource harvesting model... although my one gripe is that the battles are just your typical space shooter instead of SC 2 style.

plz to frontpage roxor game. fang Q.

Fun, but...

Is there a way to win this? I explored every planet, solved every sidequest, can ouneshot kill almost every enemy and have more money than I can spend. So what was the purpose? Or is this supposed to be open end?

There is a definite win scenario. Check the strategy guide if you're stuck.

So close!!

Was minutes away from beating it when the Farplanes launched a full-scale invasion.Will play tomorrow and beat it then.
