Description of Star Command

Star Command is a highly underrated space RPG/ strategy game that's similar to Psi 5 Trading Company in exotic aliens and expansive universe, except it has a stronger focus on RPG aspects than commerce.

Start out by recruiting your crew members and choose their expertise, then buy a ship and equipments before setting out for fame and fortune in the vast galaxy. Neat combat interface and ability to upscan / downscan planets and galaxies. The missions get difficult fast, so be warned.

The game is simple to learn, but very addictive once you get into it. If you enjoy RPGs that focus more on character and plot development and funds management rather than on throwing a lot of tough battles at you, you will enjoy Star Command -- one of SSI's most underrated games ever released. Highly recommended!

I've use the "a" to save but it won't let me load a game I saved after a party wiping pirate party. How can I load a saved game?

Found a site that said to type all a's to bypass copy protection. So if you need 4 letters type 4 a's. This worked for me

It seems the save game function doesn't work with dosbox. I typed in the correct key word but the program says it was wrong. Not sure what to do or how to fix. maybe only solution is to hack it so it always succeds.
