Players control four Sections (Security, Recon, Science, and Engineering) on board ISS Vanguard – the first ship to traverse deep space on a mission to save humanity. Gameplay is divided into two main parts: planetary exploration, where players land on colorful boards that represent alien worlds, and ship management, where players use the Ship Book to upgrade ISS Vanguard, recruit new Crewmembers, conduct research, produce new equipment or landers, and more.
You can either experience this game as a replayable, long, cooperative campaign with epic stories, dynamic gameplay, and difficult choices - or as a standalone missions that take a single gaming session.
What will you do for the sake of your missions' success? What role will your ship play in the galaxy? Can you solve the mystery of the eons-old starmap embedded in human DNA?
The Bridge is yours - take command!
