This game is a space fighter boardgame for which custom miniatures are available. Players can design their own fighters or use pre-designed plans. Weapons include lasers, cannons and missiles; defenses are armor and shields. Fighters move in an order determined by their tactics and the pilot's skill level, and firing can take place during movement. Damage results in critical hits, which limit or eliminate ship systems or wear the starcraft down until structure failure occurs. Rules allow players to form squadrons, then fight a series of individual battles or a linked campaign. Background material (optional) details six human empires and one alien power.
