The Echelon Galaxy is in desperate need of assistance, and you are its only hope. A race of evil creatures called Microids have started conquering various planets and could take complete control of the galaxy if left unchecked. A supernatural being has asked for your help and gives you an alien ship to pilot through the far reaches of space. Your goal? Establish four other species to help counter this force and help them develop into civilizations of formidable power. Only then will there be an opposition strong enough to stop the galactic conquest.
There is one catch: this must be done within a 10,000 year time frame. In this first-person adventure/space sim, you have complete freedom to accomplish your tasks as you see fit. Travel through time in 100-year leaps as you introduce new weapons and technologies to different worlds. Colonize and control up to 100 planets, engage in combat with the enemy, and communicate with alien races as you piece together your destiny. The fate of a galaxy is in your hands! ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
