Star Command is a highly underrated space RPG/strategy game that's similar to Psi 5 Trading Company in exotic aliens and expansive universe, except it has a stronger focus on RPG aspects than commerce. Start out by recruiting your crew members and choose their expertise, then buy a ship and equip it before setting out for fame and fortune in the vast galaxy. There's a neat combat interface and the ability to upscan / downscan planets and galaxies. The missions get difficult fast, so be warned. The game is simple to learn, but very addictive once you get into it. If you enjoy RPGs that focus more on character and plot development and funds management rather than on throwing a lot of tough battles at you, you will enjoy Star Command – one of SSI's most underrated games. Highly recommended!
