26/02/2075 09:30 hours - The battle between Sigma Corporation and Omicron Incorporated for lunar mining rights begins. Both organisations have mined the Terran moon for two decades, extracting its rare and precious minerals for transport back to Earth. However Sigma Corp has become greedy, and sensing a weakness in their old rival, mounts a surprise lunar attack against the unprepared Omicron Moonbases. The stage is set for a massive power struggle, in which there can be only one victor...

As a Commander in either Sigma Corporation, or Omicron Incorporated, it is your responsibility to safeguard your company's future. To do this you must take control of your company's armed forces, and send them into battle against the enemy. You must take responsibility for resource acquisition, Moonbase expansion and maintenance, force construction, maintenance and deployment. Above all you must order your forces in the heat of battle, and your strategies must work, for the alternative is unthinkable... Are you ready to take up the challenge?
