The rebirth of the space opera: DarkStar One delivers fast-paced action within a vast and authentic universe, spectacular graphics, freedom of choice, a gripping story and the strength to save the federal galaxy from its nemesis!

Centuries have passed since the intergalactic war. Since then, the races within the known universe have lived more or less in peace with each other. The Great Council watches over the peace and the power of the empires. However, a small race from the edge of the universe called the “Thul” frequently violates this peace.

Skip Jarvis is a young fighter pilot and the player’s alter ego. Hunting his father’s murderer, Skip takes his father’s “DarkStar One” craft on a flight that leads him across the galaxy and into unexpected hazards.

The galactic peace is endangered by the frequent attacks of the Thul and by the threat of a sinister presence that lurks on the horizon. Suspicion almost breaks the Great Council apart. Another war seems inevitable. In all this turmoil, Skip finds clues about his father’s secret. An unknown technology aboard the DarkStar One appears to be the key until an unexpected twist changes the course of events significantly…

Ascaron Entertainment bring their extensive experience of simulated real-world game environments to DarkStar One. The game provides exhilarating and dramatic action, whilst incorporating dynamic populace, economic and military cycles, linking the hundreds of worlds that exist with the simulation of an active, living universe of busy freight traffic, pirate activities, fighter escorts and combat maneuvers. This allows for many gameplay styles – become a pirate, raiding and destroying, or an escort supporting cargo fleets, or a mercenary available to the highest bidder. Alternatively, the player may decide to act as a bounty hunter who brings down pirates. This freedom of choice offers numerous side quests, missions and mysterious artifacts.

DarkStar One sets new graphical standards in explosive, deep-space action. The space ships are intricately designed, and spectacular special effects guarantee a truly galactic, action-packed adventure.
