WARNING: PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD!
Is it a bug or is the unregistered shareware version tweaked to end like this? After acquiring the hyperdrive and finishing few missions, I am to stop a ship from entering a vortex (wormhole). The natural flow of the story would be to follow it, so I agree with him and then... my ship explodes? If it's a wrong answer, what's the correct one? After all, I don't have enough fuel to get back, right?
I remember episode 1 being cliffhanger-y but not ambiguous like that.
That... should not happen. Um... damn, it's been too long since I last played this game, but I think you're supposed to dump something you have in your hold or it will blow you up. I forget what, sorry.
Thank you, that was it! The developer could at least give the player a better hint. Now I'm able to progress.
