"MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY! PLANET LUNA SYS REF 7091 UNDER ATTACK. UNIDENTIFIED ALIEN FORCES APPEARING ON SHORT RANGE SCANNERS. PLEASE ASSIST... MAYDAY! MAYDAY!"
Your trigger finger begins to itch and a broad smile beams across your face as the thought of combat enters your mind. You move towards the shuttle docking bay and press the button to descend. Here Crosswize begins.......
Crosswize - Don't get caught in the crossfire!
