Cosmic Encounter 42nd Anniversary Edition
Who—or what—is out there?
Eons ago, your ancestors searched the black void of space for
intelligent life. Their search proved fruitless. They were alone.
Desolate, they used their technology to send the seeds of life
to inhabitable planets across the galaxies. Over millions of years, the
alien species evolved, but before the ancestors could see the fruits of
their labor, they disappeared.
To aid their children, your ancestors left behind a legacy of
advanced technology and hyperspace gates- gifts to encourage
communication and harmony between their children. But without the guide
of an elder, you and your distant alien cousins must learn to
communicate, negotiate, and coexist.
Welcome to the Cosmic Age. The open skies of countless worlds are
filled with speeding spaceships, and a panoply of alien species compete
to populate the galaxy. Will your people choose to occupy undefended
worlds, create peaceful civilizations, or ruthlessly conquer foreign
planets? In the quest to colonize the vast cosmos, there are as many
paths to victory as there are aliens seeking it. Peace, war,
negotiation, betrayal—you never know what will happen in the next
