Ares Magazine #6. This is a prequel to The Wreck of the B.S.M. Pandora.
It is a solitaire game of interstellar exploration. The player controls the Biological Survey Mission Pandora as it travels the space ways in search of alien life forms. He uses the crew, robots and equipment of the ship to collect exotic specimens with a minimum of losses --and hopefully get back intact. The game has two time scales, the tour months that affect the "strategic" play, going from planet to planet, and the expedition hours, the tactical on-planet play. It uses an event paragraph system to generate the narrative flow, and the map shows several planet surface samples (studio sets?), to be used as needed.
