Congratulations! You got such high marks on your training performance that you have been promoted to Shuttle Commander. Your job is to lead a series of Alpha Priority missions that are vital to the welfare of the United States, U.S.-Soviet relations, and the growth of the space program itself.
After a mandatory security check, your mission begins. In stage one, you must activate the space shuttle's oxygen and hydrogen pumps, open the orbiter hatch, and escort your crew into the orbiter. The second stage is the lift-off. Here, you must ensure your craft's ability to break gravitational pull and enter orbit. In stage three you must launch a satellite, begin the initial phase of space station construction, retrieve and re-launch the satellite, begin the second phase of space station construction, rescue the Soviet Cosmonaut, and complete space station construction.
The final stage of the game deals with reentry. Here you must close the cargo bay doors, turn the orbiter around, de-orbit burn to slow down, pitch the orbiter nose up, fall into the Earth's atmosphere, perform an S-turn, approach the runway, deploy the landing gear, land the craft, and apply the brakes. To complete some of the missions, you must first familiarize yourself with the Shuttle Guidance System that is located in the instruction manual. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
