Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles In this first Russian-made space sim, you control the spaceship Parkan, which means boomerang, that has been sent on a rescue mission to find a lost research vessel when due to an accident it becomes stranded in a remote corner of the universe. It locates some war-ravaged planets where robot clans still mine fuel, produce weapons, and make factories to repair starships. In order to survive, you must trade with them, colonize planets or even pirate shipments. You can enter some of the 3D locations such as different planets and starships and shoot out in combat from first-person view.

The stellar map and bases on planets are generated randomly except for a few planets with pre-designed bases.. There are seven races: Hammer, Oberon, Xenon, Dagger, Matubo, the player's Parkan droids and the Astron pirates. Each race has its own constellation, named by color, different fighting capabilities and their own ships, shaped as first letter of their race name (i.e. H-cruisers for Hammers, looks like letter H letter). Planets have four parameters - temperature, atmosphere, organic and resources. Factories when built can repair robot-pieces, make two types of rockets, four types of drones and even ships. You can convert free planets by placing robots from planet menu console or take over an occupied planet by destroying its orbital defence fleet and all robots on the planet. If you dock with other ships, you can extract info from their computers or find items within their hull. [source:mobygames]
