Description from the packaging.

As commander of Galactica’s Imperial Forces, your mission is to conquer and hold the twenty inhabited worlds of the Central Galactic System. Aboard the fleet flagship you are ably assisted by your senior officers and the ship’s onboard computer. Computer Central contains star maps of the galaxy and a planetary directory. It also keeps track of all scout ships on missions and on the status of work orders for new star ships at your shipyards around the galaxy. Lieutenant Starbuck is your officer charged with responsibility for all scouting missions. Lieutenant Bayliss is the staff officer responsible for planetside activities. His duties range from enlisting new troops to collecting taxes to contracting for new ships for the fleet. Your navigator is Sergeant Kirman, and you also have aboard a medical doctor, Doctor Henderson, who is an expert in suspended animation techniques.

This is important, for one immutable scientific fact stands between you and the empire you wish to carve out- no one yet has discovered the secret to faster-than-light travel. Even the tiny Central Galactic System is sixty-odd light years wide. Logistics have always been an important facet of any military campaign, and that has not changed. Careful planning is essential if you are to keep your fleet replenished as it moves throughout the galaxy.

Because cryonics and high speed space travel stretch the average life span, you will have 1,000 years to complete your mission. Except during periods of travel or hibernation, you will actually have about four minutes for each year of your command.

The ship and the men you control are a potentially deadly fighting force. Commanding all of the day to day activities aboard ship is a complicated task, however, and so the attached manual may give some initial guidance.

Good luck, Commander. May the stars long shine upon your head.
