THE QUEST FOR ISCANDAR
(Referenced from Teklords site)
In the year 2199, Earth is under attack from an alien race called the Gamilons.
Gamilon planet bombs covered the earth with a deadly radioactive pollution and
the surface of the earth is now unlivable. All life on Earth has moved underground.
But even there, far below the earth's surface, the deadly radiation poisoning
is beginning to reach them. Now all life on Earth has just one year left to live.
But there is hope. On the planet Iscandar, there is a machine called the Cosmo DNA
which can remove the radioactivity and restore Earth to it's natural state.
The Star Force must travel 148,000 light years and back in just one earth year or
all life on Earth will become extinct. But the Gamilons are determined to stop the
Star Force at all costs.

The Argo travels X number of Parsecs this turn.
X depends on the level of damage sustained by the ship:
Level Ship Condition: Parsecs traveled this turn:
0 Undamaged 4D6
1 Minor Damage 3D6
2 Moderate Damage 2D6
3 Major Damaged 1D6
4 Crippled 0
5+ Destroyed Game over: Star Force loses automatically
If the ship is undamaged or has only minor damage, the Star Force player may use cards that
Allow him to travel extra Parsecs.
Instead of moving the Argo may conduct repairs:
Either discard a card that produces an automatic repair or roll 1D6:
On a roll of 1-3 reduce the ship damage level by one to a minimum of zero.
The Gamilon Player may attack the Argo by playing cards from his hand.
The attack may be either a Space attack or a Planet attack.
