Description from the packaging.

Stardate: A long, long time ago (sounds familiar, huh?) in a galaxy just around the corner...

You are the janitor on the Spaceship Arcada.

Your mission!... To Scrub dirty floors...To replace burned-out light bulbs...To clean out latrines...

To boldly go where no man has swept the floor!

Captains Log:
Saturday, 01:14:07p.m.: A super-secret Star Generator has just been tested successfully. Your crew has been celebrating. Your planet will soon have the new sun it desperately needs to keep its eco-systems alive. Your ship, the Arcada Research Lab is currently heading home to announce the good news.

Monday, 08:46:22 a.m.: An army of Sarian warriors, those nasty trigger happy space pirates from the Lower East Side, are hot on your ship's tail. Their evil capture the Star Generator and use it's secrets to take over the galaxy.

The Unforeseeable future: It's up to you! You become the sanitation engineer turned swashbuckling hero in this 3-D animated adventure game. You will pilot ships, float in space, battle fierce aliens, and perhaps even make time to catch the headlining band at the Keronian Rock Palace.

It's fun! It's crazy! It's out of this world!
