Take up the mantle of command as Galactic Emperor. It is up to you to discover new planets ripe for colonization, encourage scientific discovery, and quell the occasional rebellion. Rest assured that you will not only be challenged from within as you’ll have the galaxy’s other inhabitants to compete with for territory and profit. Some will want to wage only war while others will be more than willing to negotiate. As a strong leader, you’ll have to achieve victory or wave the white flag and prepare your surrender to enemies whose plans are more cunning than your own!
