Centuries ago your ancestors were kidnapped off of their spaceship by an alien race known as the Kojans, taken to their alien world and displayed as exhibits in the Kojans' interstellar zoo. In the eons that have passed, the Earthlings have been granted freedom by their now more civil abductors. The EarthStar society has nominated you to fly SpaceShip EarthShip back to the planet of your ancestors. Your path home will not be an easy one, however. Terrestrial Terrorists inhabit the eight systems between you and Earth. In your ship, it's all up to you to not only make it to Earth, but also destroy the terrorists in your way. The first part of each of the eight stages involves your flight through the vast systems. You'll have a map used to locate and attack enemy ships. Also, you'll have to refuel at mother space stations, repair any ship damage you may incur, and land on planets that may offer you special weapons and other surprises. The second part of each stage involves actual infiltration of terrorist bases. The first person, through-the-window view of the stage's first part switches to side scrolling as you blast away at anything coming at you. Each stage ends with a boss ship that will put your dogfighting abilities to the test. After defeating all eight stages, you'll finally have made it back to Earth. And you're definitely not the only one who wants to know what it's actually like.
