Description from the packaging.

Authentic S.D.I. "Star Wars" Simulation.

You are at the controls of America's Strategic Defense Initiative (S.D.I.) "Star Wars" space-based missile defense system.

Your computer is in command of a network of orbiting visual reconnaissance satellites and an awesome arsenal of sophisticated space-based weapons.

Using realistic military commands, you control nine separate weapon systems, including:

  • Land-based chemical lasers that fire into space and are reflected by orbiting mirrors to enemy missiles while still in boost phase.
  • Space-based free-electron lasers, that cannot penetrate the atmosphere but are effective is disabling the guidance systems of missiles that achieve orbit.
  • Neutral particle beam weapons that are used to destroy missiles in space. These are back-up systems for the electron-lasers.
  • Electro-magnetic launchers that fire "smart bullets."

The fate of the world is in your hands. You make the split-second decisions necessary to detect, intercept and destroy incoming enemy warheads.

We're at Defcon 5 and counting. Will you destroy the missiles in time to save the human race?

  • De-fuse enemy space mines deployed to destroy your satellites.
  • Utilize orbiting visual reconnaissance satellites to detect enemy actions.
  • Tactical display monitors incoming enemy warheads.
  • Control free-electron lasers to disable enemy missiles.
  • Deploy neutral particle beam weapons for the space-based battle.
  • Control 9 separate space-based weapons systems.
