Now you too can be a STAR EXPLORER! In this game of exploration and confrontation you play the role of the Captain of a StarShip of the Federation. You are on a mission to explore several new worlds.
On the way, your StarShip may encounter the hazards of space. You may be called upon to perform your secondary mission of keeping the StarLanes free from pirates. Although an uneasy truce exists with the Zangid Empire, each encounter with one of their vessels is potentially explosive.
Once you begin your voyage you must decide how your ship will be equipped. You must also choose your crew from the available manpower. You then set out on your exploration mission.
STAR EXPLORER is a role-play board game for as many as four players. It can even be played solitaire since competition is directed more against the universe as presented in the game than against the other players.
The player who completes his mission quickly and with a string of successful resolutions to encounters will do well.
