Windows System Requirements: 1.6 GHz Processor, 512 MB RAM, 3D graphics card supporting Pixel/Vertex Shader 1.1 with 128 MB RAM, 6.5 GB HD space, Windows 2000 or more recent operating system. You'll want a flight stick, too.

While several species, including humanity, occupy this corner of the galaxy, they do not coexist peacefully. Centuries ago, a great galactic war left worlds lifeless and scattered the burned-out hulks of cruisers, creating debris fields in every sector. Now there is a Galactic Union that maintains an uneasy peace. Or, at least, it used to do so. The Thul, a technologically advanced race from the fringes of the galaxy, have begun mounting attacks with unmanned drones on research stations and stealing rare resources.

Any galaxy assailed by sinister forces needs a savior, and Kayron Jarvis is that man. Jarvis has just completed training as an escort pilot when he learns of a secret Terran project led by his father. The Dark Stars are a series of experimental fighters, incorporating ancient and mysterious alien technology, designed by Jarvis' father. Only the prototype was completed before Jarvis' father was murdered. Jarvis, still a green pilot, is given this experimental craft to seek out his father's killer, and save the galaxy in the process.
