"Manning our own an intergalactic starship probably isn’t something we’re going to achieve anytime soon. I know, the truth of that fact is a hard pill to swallow. But it’s not all bad. Games like Mass Effect and FTL: Faster Than Light are doing a great job at fulfilling our desire to explore the stars. Indie developer War Balloon Games has made exploring the stars cheaper than ever with their $2.99 iOS title, Star Command.
Right from the beginning Star Command tasks you with creating an avatar from a simple set of options and naming your intergalactic vessel. Your spacecraft is filled with empty rooms, and after a few introductory missions you’ll soon have plasma canons and medical bays filling your ship."
