I had a bit of a problem putting this game in a category, since it includes quite a bit of adventure elements along with the shooting. You become a space pilot who is sent on various missions, and to complete them you must sometimes destroy another ship (or many ships) or sometimes simply pickup an item, or talk to the captain of another ship. The different genres gel well together, and the game includes smooth-scrolling VGA graphics. A bit like Star Control, I think. I've never really played Star Control, but it seems similar. :)
