Description from the packaging.

Hello stranger. Want to be a hero?

For the first time since 2313 A.D. when the Tzorg Empire began its merciless attacks, the United Stellar Council may have a chance to defeat the treacherous Tzorgs. Reports of fierce battles near planet XK-120, indicate that slowly but steadily the council is gaining ground. It is imperative, however, that the remaining humans on XK-120 rise up now and overthrow the robot police force the Tzorgs have installed. Only then can XK-120's tactical weapons can be used to aid the Council forces.

Every last member of the resistance has either been captured or is closely monitored by the robot patrol. As a new inhabitant of XK-120, however, you have no police record, so you have a chance to locate the central control console and deactivate the robot control system. Not a good chance, but a chance.
