Description from the packaging.

Csh Interplanetary courier dispatch
Operation update, fourth solar rotation, 2093
To: Cobra Steel Company headquarters
From: ORE Excavation Fleet Commander Davichick

Landing successful. Freighter's pods anchored. Firing turrets operational. Looks like we'll need them, too. Black Star is already here, along with two other well-armed fleets I've never seen before. No one's real glad to see us. Must mean there's even more on this rock than the company's scouter droid detected.

Disrupted our neighborhood when we deployed our little steel armada. Attack boats launched. Tanks armed and in place. And the T-99 Heap Super tank is watching our back door. Our show of force may get some of these pirates to negotiate a non-aggressive pact. But as always, diplomacy arrangements are subject to change at any time-and we'll be ready to capture and re-flag any units we can. Otherwise we'll just blast the pigs off the planet.

Excavation activity: The pontoons are out-We'll start building the bridge as soon as possible. Transporter Crabs haulin' ORE. And the weather hen is hummin' along like a Saturn Malbet. It's reporting high tides tomorrow, so we'll probably have it converting ORE into some new units; I'd like to put more Crabs in the field, but may settle for another tank or two-just in case.

The clock is running. Don't know how long this planet can support all of us. It's gonna turn into a tight race to see who'll get out of here with the biggest load- If any of us gets out of here at all.

  • Intense strategy and military-simulation.
  • 1 to 4 players - human or computer.
