You command a team of DSSR commandos, usually referred to as 'troopers'. Your mission is to recover damaged, lost, or infected starship derelicts. In addition to that, you will sometimes engage hostage or refugee rescue operations, reclaim ships or installations occupied by raiders, mutineers, pirates or alien organisms, and other government-sponsored missions. Your expertise is combat and elimination, but also maintenance, salvage, infiltration and rescue. You will have to manipulate your environment to your advantage, but also maintain it to guarantee your survival and success. Because, in space, the environment and even your own technology can turn out to be as deadly and hostile as any space pirate or parasitic xenoform.
