Description Edit | History

Catalogue description.

A unique science fiction game whose features allow 2 to 4 players to design their own starships and then explore and conquer the unknown reaches of the galaxy. Economic factors and technological differences are reflected on a grand strategic level of play. Because high-tech ships can only be repaired on high-tech worlds, players try to strike the right balance between advanced and mundane technology so that critical battles are not missed due to refits, repairs or rotation to high-tech repair facilities. Due to differing industrial capacities and production capabilities, players who are too high-tech may discover that opponents using low-tech equipment win more battles by having more functional equipment available a higher percentage of the time.
