Official description

From the moment that Captain Xod's face appeared out of the static on the communicator, you knew he was in trouble. As the only other Federation ship in the sector you had to go to his aid. You need to fight your way through sixteen zones, collecting essential supplies for the fleet. At the end of each sector you have a chance to refuel and restock but only after you have defeated the most vicious alien you have ever seen.

A strategic vertically scrolling shoot-em-up. You have the option of swapping between two very different craft, suit the challenge facing you at the time; either a ground-based saucer or a well-armed, and faster fighter aircraft.

A fast-moving, thinking man's shoot-em-up.
