The governments of earth have long since abolished war at large. Peace had dawned and humanity began to discover that it was far from alone. Discoveries of new worlds, as vast and complex, with histories and cultures just as deep and numerous as our own, began a golden age for humanity. But such peace was not meant to last. Humanity began colonizing suitable worlds in the solar system, but soon war and chaos divided her once again. All the while, a threat loomed in the deep reaches of the galaxy. A war ridden race, full of greed and malice would hope to dominate them, but humanity is hard to control...
The Ringed Planet.

There is still so much to do though.
Currently, I wouldn't say this game is really playable. The player can fly through empty planets, and eventually come to an inanimate Pirate base that will eventually be a very hard boss fight. Many enemies are almost ready, but they have no obstacle avoidance, and that's harder than you might think to come up with.
Also part of this game will be commanding other ships, although that will take a will for me to think up.
