Description from the packaging.

Alien combat and role-playing adventure.

There's no room for error when traveling at the speed of light, racing through star systems in a desperate search for a new world to house mankind. But there are plenty of opportunities for mistakes. Alien races of every conceivable size, shape, temperament, and sophistication seek to aid, use, corrupt or destroy you- and you don't know which.

Sure, your starship is 15,000 feet long and armed with remote-controlled fightercraft, kamikaze fighters, a devastating plasma gun and high-tech probes, but will all that firepower be enough against The Stentor, ruthless time-traveling space pirates, or the colossal energy beings known as The Zor?

Perhaps diplomacy is the answer. The Cicisbeo are vain and arrogant- perhaps that ego can be worked to your advantage. The Broodmasters are sinister, manipulative and seek universal domination, but are they a little too eager?

Perhaps something can be gained from shrewd trading. But that will be tough against the ever-seeking, ever-hungry Collectors, keepers of the Museum of Time; not to mention the supra-intelligent Jot, who control the minds of everyone nearby.

Whatever choices you make, make them quickly. You're moving at Hyperspeed- second thoughts could be fatal.

Crisp, vivid Super 3-D graphics that look fantastic on any machine, any color graphic card.

Imaginative graphics and sounds remind you constantly of the wonders, mysteries, dangers, and rewards of the strange, sometimes hostile, solar systems you travel among.

Four star clusters to explore, each with different alien races and unique challenges, each more difficult than the last.

Intricate role-playing opportunities with dozens of bizarre aliens, each responding according to their customs, hidden agendas and intergalactic relationships. Free original Lightspeed clusters included!
