Faster Than Light, 1986
LIGHTFORCE is for VENGEANCE... LIGHTFORCE is the Punishment Arm of Galactic Fighter Command.
When a Terran-settled system at the edge of the galaxy is seized by an alien force, revenge comes in the form of a lone LIGHTFORCE fighter.
LIGHTFORCE confronts alien in a dazzling battle above the strange landscapes of the Ice Planet, the Jungle Planet, Alien factories and the impassable Asteroid Belt.
S.O.S. - ALL SYSTEMS ALERT...
The distress call from the colonies around Regulus is brief - "Ships of unknown origin landing at key installations!" The GEM council react quickly and decisively, and order their entire space force in the Regulus sector into action. Unfortunately, that turns out to be just one LIGHTFORCE fighter, on deep space patrol, and, as luck would have it, it's piloted by YOU!
As you emerge from light-drive beyond the outer planet, you see several thousand battle-ready alien ships, hundreds of ground-based weapon installations and energy domes, and a host of special armaments pods circling each planet - all ranged against your single LIGHTFORCE fighter. As the odds are stacked heavily in your favour, you set about your task immediately - LIGHTFORCE is for REVENGE.
