A shareware multi-player strategic space game for PC-Clones. You control a race of beings attempting to conquer the universe. Players use a graphical interface to enter their turns, and then send a binary file to the moderator, who runs them through a program that processes the turn. A review of version 2.1 appears in PBEM volume 92 # 6. Keep in mind that lower ship numbers get to attack first -- this isn't mentioned in the manuals, and it's important to take this into account.
