Your mission is to chart the long-abandoned Serpens Sector, a region of space reached through a wormhole near Earth. Each star system you visit brings you an encounter with something - aliens, ancient ruins, other humans and many dangers.
This is a screenshot of the playable prototype. On the left is a list of crew and items with their skills and abilities, while on the right is the star map and an encounter. Each choice in the encounter that requires the use of skills shows your likelihood of success. (This can be turned off if you want a more hardcore experience, though.)
