The people of Earth are shocked to discover a huge asteroid heading on a collision course with their planet. There is just time enough to build a ship to carry 2,500 colonists to a new planet and perhaps save some small measure of what Earth was, as well as their people.
Just after the ship is built and moved into orbit, the scientists come up with a plan to possibly save Earth and her peoples; hit the asteroid with a missile and try to break it into smaller chunks that will hopefully miss Earth altogether.
This plan fails. The asteroid is split into two large chunks, but both hit and cause total loss of life. Only you, chosen to be the commander of the mission, and the people already on the ship, are saved. Now, you must find a new planet to settle and bring the remnants of Earth's people to.
This is your mission in Outpost, by Sierra Online. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
