John doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

Good game but... I have to agree with the others in that this game is way to short. It's an awesome game, so please make more! I would give it 5 stars if the game was longer, but all in all a very good game .

Superb graphics, overall gameplay - so so Can't bring myself to give it more than 3 stars, inspite the great graphics. Lacks in upgrades to ship and weapons, the missions are just a typical space shooter mess. It gets better with each lvl, but there are not that many and the best ones are also the shortest. Lacks maneuverability, especially noticeable in the final round. And what's with the "Borg" mothership speach?! 😂

Awesome... and short An extremely fun, well-written game that takes me back to Wing Commander and other classic space shooters. Voice acting is a bit iffy, but pretty funny regardless. However, just as I was getting into the game, it was over. 2 hours gameplay, tops. I thought I was just in the first act or something along those lines, but nope, it is painfully short. If the developer is planning a larger scale sequel, I'm definitely on board.
