    Summary
    Nobody ever said exploring the universe would be easy. In the next century, mankind has taken its interstellar efforts to new levels of achievement. Probes now speed out of our solar system at unimaginable speeds, and terraforming is being tested on a large planetoid named Haven-7 which now orbits close to Earth.

    It turns out that our probes were all too successful -- a swarm of ravenous alien ships have arrived at Earth, and all-out war has resulted. Fortunately, we were not unprepared, but it will be a long and sordid fight. Meanwhile, the poor inhabitants of Haven-7 are left on their own, with only one ship spared for their defense. You are the PROTECTOR of Haven-7!

    Protector is a joint development by Bethesda Softworks and Songbird Productions. The game is an incredible, fast-paced, blast-filled bi-directional shooter. Are you ready to protect your territory from the alien swarm? Can you keep those inhabitants safely located on the ground, or will they be mutated into an even deadlier foe? And don't forget to grab those powerups to enhance your ship and purchase even more upgrades at the Galactic Shop.
