You're John Blake and you're mission is to fly to the Infinite Expanse and grab some sample high energy yield Corbamite ore for use in new drive and weapons development.
Every two bit thief, pirate and black marketer is in the area too. Tension is high and competition fierce and you're on your own. Your ship is outfitted with the latest engines, shields and weapons technology. You will have to use your wits to survive, collect enough ore and return home safely. Good luck pilot!
