TITAN DEFENDER !!!
The year is 2085. On the bleak moon of Saturn. Titan, there is
a small mining station run by the Out world Resource Control. Combine. Fill is quiet among the 3,764 inhabitants.
You are the chief engineer, in charge of the vast microwave arrays, which when Locked on to one of the many solar panel complexes in geostationary orbit above the moon. provide power
for the community. To ensure that power is available for the entire 27-hour day, there are several, panel complexes dotted about the sky.
The rebellion on Beta Theca VI has Left the stock market uneasy about the security of the Out-

Low on the horizon hang many glittering Mystons, plasma balls that are the The carian military standard.
GOOD LUCK !
