Description from the packaging.

Why read science-fiction when you can live it!

Star Command gives you the exhilarating excitement that only the best science-fiction novels can deliver.

And more.

Because, in this multiple-character role-playing game, you don't just read about the adventure- you live it!

You create a special force of eight startroopers by selecting characters with different levels of strength, speed, courage, intelligence, psychic power and other skills.

Your first mission: Locate the infamous Blackbeard and destroy his band of intergalactic pirates- a monumental task given the thousands of planets that make up this game universe. With guidance from Armed Forces Headquarters, you'll search planets and explore dungeon-like hideouts for clues to Blackbeard's home base. Along the way, you'll battle his minions in hand-to-hand and ship-to-ship combat.

With each successful foray, your crew will gain fighting experience, rise in rank and carry more powerful weapons such as ions guns, bacterial-infestation grenades and thunderbolt rifles.

Upon completion of your first task (should you survive it at all!), you'll battle more than smugglers- you'll take on an entire alien, insectoid race! Your orders: Uncover enemy invasion plans and use them to destroy the insect's main battle ships.
