The game is not focused only in your spaceship, you will have to complete different missions having to do with the population of several planets of the universe. Accept or reject the missions and build your own personality.
As long as you complete missions you'll earn money that will help you to buy new pieces for your ship and power it up.
Goods freight, battles, patrol an area of the space... are just some of the missions you'll have to complete in this really good game. Remember, Vega Strike is totally free: Do you dare?
