Why read science-fiction when you can live it!
STAR COMMAND gives you the exhilarating
excitement that only the best science-fiction
novels can deliver.
Because, in this multiple-character
role-playing game, you don't read about the
adventure -- you live it!
You create a special force of eight startroopers by selecting characters with different
levels of strength, speed, courage, intelligence, psychic powers and other skills.
Your first mission: Locate the infamous
Blackbeard and destroy his band of intergalactic pirates -- a monumental task given
the thousands of planets that make up this
game universe. With guidance from Armed
Forces Headquarters, you'll search planets
and explore dungeon-like hideouts for clues
to Blackbeard's home base. Along the way,
you'll battle his minions in hand-to-hand and
With each successful foray, your crew will
gain fighting experience, rise in rank and
carry more powerful weapons such as ions
guns, bacterial-infestation grenades and
Upon completion of your first task (should
you survive it at all!), you'll battle more than
smugglers -- you'll take on an entire alien,
insectoid race! Your orders: Uncover enemy
invasion plans and use them to destroy the
insect's main battle ships.
Where all your spaceborn fantasies come alive.
