Prepare to embark on a wild adventure in the sci-fi world where the fate of the crew is in your hands! The Captain Is Dead, and it's up to you to step into the Captain's chair and coordinate the team to salvage the ship. This turn-based, survival/strategy game offers a thrilling experience that will have you on the edge of your seat.

With a team consisting of Chief Engineer, Weapons Officer, Ensign, Counselor, Admiral, Cyborg, Soldier, Crewman, and even the ship’s Janitor, it’s up to you to leverage each member's custom skills to overcome challenges and avoid the same fate as the Captain.

The alien enemies will do everything they can to annihilate the ship, so it's up to you to take the lead in utilizing state-of-the-art systems to fend off attacks. Control the Bridge to scan for threats, repair shields and communicate with the crew. In the War Room, you'll find emergency dossiers left by the captain to help you out. The Armory is the place to destroy alien ships with torpedoes, and activate auto-turrets to repel attackers, while the Cargo Hold offers useful gear.

As the Captain, you have the power to power-up your crew with skills through the CPU Core, or find lasers and scanners in the Cargo Hold. Keep the Infirmary at the ready to patch up any injuries, and upgrade the ship’s systems in the Science Lab or fix the Jump Core in Engineering to Jump to Hyperspace.

Do you have what it takes to lead the crew and keep them safe from the evil enemies? It's time to show your skills in a game that will have you hooked to the very end!
