The game puts you in charge of John, a soldier of the Federation. The faction has been locked in war with the Rebels, who are desperately trying to to sever their connection with this galaxy-governing body.

Your spaceship and weapons are upgradable, so you can tailor vessel and arsenal to suit your play-style.
