About the Story

You are Mike Erlin, assistant astro-navigator on the survey spaceship "Stellar Queen". Your ship has been dragged out of space onto the moon of an earth-like planet by a tractor beam and is now trapped on the surface of the moon. Your captain has refused you permission to join the away team that is going to search for the source of the beam, a giant underground installation. You resolve to get off the ship and search for this installation yourself, but first you must get out of the control room un-noticed by the captain and equip yourself for the quest.

Can you free the Stellar Queen from the grip of the "MAGNETIC MOON"?
