Set in the aftermath of a huge intergalactic war between powerful and aggressive alien races. Planets, moons and even suns have been rendered lifeless. Little has survived, and the war has scattered the remnants of civilization to the far corners of space. A once thriving network of space stations and planets have been left lifeless, redundant scars of the apocalypse.

Into this age of darkness comes light. You will lead the way in rebuilding the network of space stations to a standard accepted by the individual alien races, attracting them to harness their expertise and research new technologies.

Thus begins the hilarious battle of wits and cunning, full of daring escapades. Do you squeeze out your enemies with financial ruin, or simply blast them back into space?
