3001: O'Connors Fight - Instructions
It's 3001. It has not been possible to developed an independent Space-Travel,
yet. Because of this, travel through space and live on other planets is only
possible in a distance of 15 light-years (from our sun).
The imperium was reigned by an imperator, who kept up law and order for
some time. But now, the imperator is dead and a war has started between the
six lords of the universe, who'll become the new imperator.
The six lords do nearly everything to expand themselves and to reign the
whole universe one day.
One of them is John O'Connor. A master in strategy and a believer in law and
order. Will he reign the universe one day and will he cope with the other
5 cruel lords?
