Empire is a game of courage, high adventure, space travel - and terrible risks.
You start in the Abatlu system equipped with the basic Cub Scoutship. Your objective: to build a great galactic Empire spanning many solar systems. To achieve this you'll have to trade with Starbases, destroy the invading aliens who infest many of the planets, brave dozens of missions and become the greatest space pilot of all time.
Then - and only then - can you begin to build a vast Frontier Shield to protect your fragile Empire for the rest of eternity...
