Pioneer is a space adventure game set in our galaxy at the turn of the 31st century.
The game is open-ended, and you are free to eke out whatever kind of space-faring
existence you can think of. Look for fame or fortune by exploring the millions of
star systems. Turn to a life of crime as a pirate, smuggler or bounty hunter. Forge
and break alliances with the various factions fighting for power, freedom or self-
determination. The universe is whatever you make of it.
