A routine biological survey mission into the Orion Galaxy became a space nightmare. The biological specimen locks snapped open the instant the fleet's 20 ships timewarped into the eye of the exploding Wolf-Roert nova. The lab's bizarre cargo of 20 alien creatures emptied within minutes, taking control. A desperate SOS was sent out, just as fuel and navigation systems faltered.
The ships drifted along for a decade in hopeless orbit when the SOS finally reached Earth. Most of the human crew had years ago opted for cryogenic freeze. Others still alive, suffer from radiation poisoning.
You must repair and return the ships to earth using what you find aboard... 6 programmable robots, weapons, pass keys, maps and chemical coolant. Your only obstacles are the mad crew, the new crew, and time. You are Spacewrecked.
