About the Story

The research vessel "Discoverer", Earthward bound after a six month expedition to the Edanus Star System, ploughed silently through the black void of space. She appeared normal, her engine quiet, all systems apparently functioning normally, yet there was something not quite right. Apart from the fact that the "Discoverer" had been lost to Earth some seven months previously, strange mis-shapen figures flitted past the windows - silhouetted in a dull eerie light, whilst the vessel herself was surrounded by a strange halo of orbiting debris.

Suddenly the "Discoverer" had her ghostly solitude rent asunder by the arrival of two sleek starfighters who had been on a routine patrol of this sector. Surprised by her presence they flew closer to the hull, surveying for damage and attempting to communicate with the crew when, without warning, the wingman screamed in cold terror and, closely followed by his bemused flight leader, veered away from the ship and streaked Earthwards in a state of panic, leaving the "Discoverer" to the quiet solitude she had known for so many months.

Some weeks later, after a ten-hour flight through hyperspace, the BCIS shuttle docked with the "Discoverer". On board the shuttle a small "recon" team, led by Captain Payne, prepared to board the "Discoverer". Payne gave the order to open the hatch and a strange stale smell permeated the shuttle... it reminded Russell of something but she was not quite sure what. Just then Captain Payne noticed that Lawson was missing... somehow he must have entered the "Discoverer".

Best of the Indies - Vol II
You have been sent on a special investigation to find out what's going on a space cruiser. The story begins when you dock in the shuttle bay and enter the ship's cabin. You'd better get a move on though, as in a few moves there's a great explosion that rips through the cabin caused by a bomb in the docking bay! [...] A nicely plotted, logical game bearing some similarity to the old Level 9 'Silicon Dreams' trilogy with shades of the 'Alien' movie.

Best of The Quill, PAW and GAC by Denk
More than 1000 games were made with the British tools "The Quill", "PAW" and "GAC" through the 80s and early 90s. Some bad, others worth playing today. I would like to know which are the best. Those with the most votes are probably among...
