About the Mission:
The first mission’s goal is to reach Alpha Centauri. The astronauts are supposed to take ground samples. The Alcubierre Jump Drive was developed in line with the KNOSSOS research project, specifically for this mission. This technology enables the light jump impulse of a space ship. A fleet consisting of diverse space ships is available for the very first manned light jump in the history of mankind. These space ships differ in load capacity, jump coverage, tank volume and technical equipment. There are also different landing modules which enable the exploration of Alpha Centauri. The space ships are provided with the latest scanners and laboratories and offer enough room for four members of the mission. Therefore, the player has to choose four out of ten available astronauts before launching the mission. Their individual and variable skills are essential for the shaping of the adventure.
