You are the commander of Jupiter Station, a peaceful trading station. However, times of peace have since ended. The station has been quickly retrofitted to a bastion to protect the people on the planet’s surface from the approaching enemy fleet. You know there is no way to defeat the fleet… you have to hold on as long as possible to save as many refugees as you can.

(If you make it far enough, you will lose to the Grandiose)
