A quest to touch the stars and expand your galactic empire is what awaits you in this space opera. You will take the role as leader of one of eight galactic super powers. The galaxy awaits your soft touch or iron fist.
You start off in your home solar system, given some resources and a flag ship. You must venture forth to expand your race at the dominant life, whether it be, trade or extermination. Each of the races have specific traits but can be modified on the new game screen. Each will define how you interact with the other races. You could have a small home world with a pack mentality or be alluring and ponderous or even repulsive and wasteful the decisions you choose are up to you and balance very nicely.
