This game represents an unlicensed use of elements of the Walt Disney Productions film The Black Hole.
As captain of the interstellar craft Palomino, returning from a long journey, you find yourself face to face with a gigantic black hole. Moving closer, you find something more unique-a ship sitting on the vortex's edge, unaffected by the immense gravity. It is deep-space one, the Cygnus, humanity's most illustrious scientific undertaking.
Decades earlier, the Cygnus's designer and captain, Dr. Hans Reinhardt, conned the international space appropriations agency into funding this giant project. Then, after years of failure, the ship did not respond to a command to return to earth. The ship was assumed lost, and its crew presumed dead.
As the Palomino makes a pass over the vessel, the silent, dead apparition suddenly springs to life! Lights go on all over the Cygnus; her docking bay beckons to the smaller ship. The palomino lands, and you step into the legacy of a ship of robots, a ship controlled by its only human survivor, Dr. Hans Reinhardt.
Your mission is to escape from the Cygnus, and inform the world of your discovery!
