I thought that this game needed a proper introduction for new players, to explain the plot and great storyline behind the gameplay. And what better way to do that than in the style of another very successful space opera?
If you don't already have Faster Than Light, it is a very addictive little indie game and I recommend you buy it today (only $10 at the moment). You can get it on Steam or at http://www.ftlgame.com/
