When I start the game, after some days a women contacts me about a scientist. Near the end of the discution it says to me that I should go to her planet to speak with her. How can I travel to other planets ?

'If an offer looks too good to true, it probably isn't.' It probably is?

That one is answered in the manual, in step-by-step form. assign an SIN Operative to do an espionage mission to that planet as soon as you start the game. (before you get the message) and the assign a ship to a passive military mission to that planet. (prefferably a fox class since they are stealth ships, and wait a little before sending the ship so the SIN guy can pack his bags)
then do the same after getting the message.

nice game, but it gets harder as you go. the manual has a very detailed set of instructions up until it really gets hard and I strongly suggest you read them. (reunion gets harder the farther in you go also)

Yeap, the manual is bigger than the game (3mb/5.15mb).
Its a good game, it is better than master of orion or ascendancy

I have this thing still on CD y'know.

So, if you guys need any original files, etc. I have them. In fact, I still have the manual xD

It is a good game; EXTREMELY difficult when it comes to winning it (to the point of driving you completely bonkers) but very rewarding [as long as you can micromanage well].

LOL Good luck with the invasion of the last few planets!! They're a doozy! [DEATH RAY FIRE!! ]

Wow, I thought I was only person who remembered this game... Anywho, for the beginner here are a few things in mind...

1) There is a time limit on the game, take too long to win it and you'll automatically lose. So what I did was defeat the Synidate home planet (forgot the name sorry) with the fleet of Dragon warships :-D.

2) There is a glitch where sometimes when you save-quit-load your save game file, the computer changes the research you did and gives it to a rival business.

3) Another glitch, but this one is beneficial. Play the game long enough, and you'll soon realize that you're going to run out of staff. This is bad for you it you want to build up a massive space force and still remain on the cutting edge of technology and stay on top of mining. SO, what you do is this... create a warship with the minimum staff then transfer them back to free staff. So now you have a warship with no staff hehe but it still is a useable warship.

4) The nomad that invades you... beat the crap outta him.

That's all I remember for now, if any questions feel free to ask. I've beaten this games too many times to count, however for the first 50 times I didn't know how to avoid being suddently assassinated. To this day, I STILL dont know what triggers the sudden/random invasion of harmony and end game assassination.
