the Play-by-Email Game of Starships and Conquest

Welcome to the Year 5030 AD, three millenia into the future. In the frontiers of Outer Space, a number of alien races exist, and vie with each other for control of resource-rich star systems. Here you may lead an interstellar empire, sending forth your fleets of starships to carve out an empire. Should you fail, not only will your nation crumble, but your race will be either subjugated or annhilated. To survive against this menace, you will need to use well-planned tactics, clever scheming, and ruthless determination.

The current scenario available is Galactic Warlords: Trek Wars.
