"They're everywhere! They've taken over the skies! They're
coming for earth! They're ..."
Yesterday, that message came in from a colony ship making first
contact with an apparent life form in Alpha Centauri. Today we
know we are not alone in the universe but we wish we were. Our
colonies and space stations from here to there have been attacked and
overwhelmed. And we've just got a report that they have arrived at Pluto's
"So, they tell me you're a hot shot pilot. Your reputation preceeds you.
Well we've got a pretty hot ship for you and I hope you make good use of it;
it may be earth's last chance to hold off this extra terrestrial attack!"
So it looks like you've been resurrected from obscurity to save
earth yet again.
The GALACTIC AVENGER is the ship you will be using. It uses
the latest technology in terms of armament and shielding.
Its missiles are fast and pack quite a punch. Most of the
alien ships will be destroyed with only one direct hit. The
armour is a high density alloy which can take a pounding.
Its greatest design feature is its modularity. Additions
and modifications can be made while it is in action. For
example, the guns can turn into laser cannons or double
barrelled missiles. The shielding can be repaired and its
engines can be boosted. However each modification takes
additional power sources. It is indeed a mighty ship but
still needs a skilled pilot at its helm to survive the alien
The Alien Enemy
Intelligence is sketchy, however probes that survived the
initial onslaught reported back that there are thousands of
alien attack vessels of varied design and characteristics. Each
is powered by a spinning blue energy core. In building the
Galactic Avenger we decided the only chance we had of matching
their fire power and sheer numbers would be to be able to
harness *their* energy cores. This will be a vital part of your
strategy in trying to defeat them. It is believed that when
destroying an enemy ship there is a chance that the energy core
will be released and can be collected by the Galactic Avenger.
