Independence War

A guerilla war has been raging for centuries in space. Human colonists are breaking away from Earth's control, declaring independence from the Commonwealth, a power bloc of nations.

As a Commonwealth Navy commander, your mission is to stop the Indie rebels and their random piracy and terrorist attacks. It's a sophisticated, interstellar battle for life, and you must fight your way along the path between duty and justice. With luck and skill you can secure a victory for mankind.


The Independence War is reaching a crucial phase. The Commonwealth Navy is laying siege to the Indie stronghold of Midway, hoping to starve the planet into submission, thus stopping the Indie rebels. The conflict is escalating with no end in sight.

You take on the role of Indie commander Edison Hayes and his crew, propelling yourself headlong into the conflict. You must rely on your wits and courage, for the Navy has the technological edge and the manpower. The fate of the Indies is in your hands.
