Join the United Earth League (UEL), the rebellious Martian Consortium (MC), the Marauder Pirate Clan, or the Independent Council of Governors (ICG) as you take on assignments, trade, fight, smuggle, and more. The game has similarities to Elite and Privateer, though with more detailed ship and environment simulation (with multiple space stations, Newtonian ship movement physics, and multiple ship components). Decide your own career in this 3D simulation and create your own destiny. The game also includes a training mode, multiplayer combat (up to 64 players) and a gauntlet.
