It's the far distant future (around the 67th century) and you've just been assigned to a small backwater supply district called
Jacob's Star. You're an excellent pilot with a good battle record in the Renegade Legion but your reputation as a loner with
suspect leadership skills has gotten you reassigned to this remote system. And your new Squadron Leader, "Mother", condones no
breaches in authority or procedures. You must survive his evaluation in order to rejoin another front-line squadron.
Renegade: Battle for Jacob's Star is the story of an epic space battle pitting the Terran Overlord Government (TOG), originally
made up of KessRith and Ssora factions, against The Commonwealth (an alliance between Humans and Baufrin), of which the
Renegade Legion is a part. Times have changed and the KessRith are now Commonwealth allies (there are 21 Grand Dukedoms,
eight of which have been captured by the TOG) as well. The TOG wants absolute dominion over all races and the Commonwealth,
outnumbered, undermanned and helped only by the decentralization of the TOG forces (8 million legions, 50,000 men each) and
the vast distance separating the systems, must fight back with a much smaller force, aided by various allies.
With a huge array of ships, weapons, technologies, worlds and alien races to interact with, Renegade: Battle for Jacob's Star is a
mission based space flight simulation of epic proportions replete with wingmen, maneuvering, combat, exploration and more.
From the Manufacturer: Get ready for the Dog Fight of your life. Command a squadron of Renegade fighters against an
overwhelming terran overloard government invasion force! Fly your choice of futuristic ships from the Cheetah to the Space Gull
and MANY others! Based on FASA's popular Renegade Legion: Interceptor game system, Renegade is the story of
starfighter-to-starfighter conflict in the 67th century. And like Wing Commander, X-Wing, and others of the genre, the
extraordinary skill of an individual pilot determines the outcome of a galactic war. You are responsible for recruiting and leading
a squadron of wingmen to control the throttles of eight sleek ships. Pilot skill levels, from rookie to veteran, determine the
complexity of the game's play. Your leadership ability determines the outcome.
