FlashTrek Broken Mirror Game Description

Flash Trek is a very complex Star Trek based strategy space game. Colonize planets, trade and combat! Read the instructions. Pick your race, explore and blow the crap out of other races. Die turtle heads, DIE!

The Earth Empire was founded in 21 25. Their thirst for power and conquest would lead them on a two-hundred-year enterprise of destruction and enslavement. Within 20 years of the birth of the Empire over a dozen races had been annexed and set to work building the Imperial Regime.

But: revolution would send the empire to the brink of collapse, opening the way for the oppressed to reclaim their independence. It was the Klingons who built the strongest empire, swiftly conquering over half of human territory.

Without the firm hand of the empire the galaxy has degenerated into anarchy. Empires rise and fall regularly. The Humans and the Klingons are engaged in a bloody interstellar war, while other governments battle for what territories they have. The galaxy awaits for a powerful hand to rise up and restore law and order.

This tutorial will take you through all of the aspects of gameplay. It will start with the basics of surviving, including navigation, trading, interacting with other starships and planets, and combat.

It is recommended that you brief over at least the first few sections of the tutorial in order to gain an understanding of basic ship operations.

The player quick-readout shows your energy level, shield strength, hull strength, and recharge status of your 3 weapons. It also displays messages and info. The sensor panel will show the planet (a blue circle), your position (a yellow dot), and the positions of neutral, allied, or hostile ships (gray, green, red dots) in the current system you are in.

Move your mouse over the player quick-readout (or click your ship or press "p") and you will open your player control panel. This panel allows you to use your transporter, build stations, open the interstellar map, load weapons, manage fleets, manage your shuttlebays, micro-manage ship power distributions, manage your cargo hold, and view your player stats. Each menu will be explained as they are needed in this tutorial. For now, familiarize yourself with the various functions.


First let's interact with the planet. Fly your ship to the planet and click on it, or press "h" for hail. The planet communications window will then open. Here you can buy resources (press "a" to buy antimatter or click it - you can hold "d" to buy lots of deuranium without clicking.

If the system you are in is hostile against you (if your local prestige is < 0%) you will not get this window and you will get a brief scan of the planet instead that contains the basic system info. To buy a ship, antimatter, or deuranium you need latinum. You can also sell things.

Click "sell" and you will get a panel with an option to sell your resources (antimatter/deuranium), weapons, any technology you have, or ships you own that are in that system. But first you need to make money. The easiest way to do this at first is to go on trade missions. Hover the mouse over the 'trade' button and it will display a trade mission. Click it to accept and the cargo will be loaded into your cargohold.


Click the cargo management button in the player control panel or press "c" to open that panel. There are 2 types of cargo, the one we just purchased was a trade mission. It can only be delivered at its destination. Hover the mouse over cargo description to see its destination. The second type is "commodity" cargo. This is bought at merchant shops at various stations. It can be sold anywhere by the ton, and can even be bought and sold in bulk with other starships. In fact, if you have commodities in your cargo hold that another ship wants, they will hail you and request it. Commodity trading can be very profitable.

For now, we are going to deliver this cargo to its destination. In order to do that, we will need to travel between systems.

First, hail the planet and make sure to buy up a full load of antimatter. You'll need it for the
trip.

Open the player control panel and click the map button (or press "m") to open the interstellar map. This allows you to travel between systems. When you go to a system you will have more information about it. Hovering the mouse over the system will give you basic info. To travel to a planet, just click it. You can travel to any planet so long as you have
enough antimatter for the trip. Antimatter is calculated in days and it will tell you how many days it will take to travel from your system to the desired system. (To see how many days your antimatter is good for, open the player control panel and hover the mouse over the antimatter storage bar).

Once in the desired system, fly to the planet and transport to it. You cargo will be automatically transported to the surface. Transport can also be used to send an away team down to the surface, where they will conduct a mission and result in an increase or decrease in your local prestige. It will also increase your away team experience, which is necessary for colonizing planets.

Transport is also used for boarding disabled ships. When a ship is disabled, select it and click transport and your team will beam aboard and attempt to either steal latinum from it, steal technology / weapons from it, or capture the whole ship.

That being said, on to the basics of combat.

To engage a target, first click on it or press "=" to select the closest target. Then you can use your firing weapons (space, z, x) to fire any weapon you have loaded. There are many different types of weapons; beam weapons, pulse weapons, torpedoes, and special weapons like engine disruptors and tractor beams.

When you attack a target a target window will appear in the lower left corner. It displays the target image, the direction of the target, and its strength as a red bar. There is also a scan button where you can scan the ship to learn what kind of weapons it has. Useful before attacking a ship class you have never seen before. A good rule of thumb is that if the ship is bigger than you are, its stronger than you are. A blinking red circle will appear around the target you have selected and any hostile ship will appear red on your sensor map.

Although not necessary, you may find it useful in combat to adjust the Power Distribution settings for your ship. Open the Player Control Panel and click the Distribution Control panel (OPS). You can then adjust how much power is given to each system. "Reserve" refers to how fast your energy will recharge, good if you are using a high fire rate weapon that consumes a lot of energy.

Engines will determine how fast you will be able to travel given the amount of damage you have. As your damage increases, your top speed decreases. Weapons increases the amount of energy to the weapons, so each shot will deliver a bigger punch. Shields will increase the rate that your shields recharge at. It is useful in non-combat situations as well, such as when using a cloaking device, setting the "Reserve" to maximum will allow you to remain cloaked without energy loss.

Now lets look at your player stats. This will tell you your experience levels, your galactic prestige, your reputation, and how many planets, ships, and people are in your empire. In the beginning of course you are insignificant and have nothing. As you play the game, various actions will increase your experience (example; beaming away teams to planets will increase away team experience, etc).

Galactic prestige is just an average of all the local prestiges in the game. Reptuation will depend on what kind of actions you do most and how the galaxy views you, as a trader, an explorer, a pirate, etc. There is a button "Declarations" which will show you what governments have either Declarations of War against you or Allied Treaties with you. Useful, as any government with a declaration of war against you may attack any system you colonize, and any allied govt may help defend it. At the bottom the row of icons will display any technologies or special items you have.

That should get you started with the basic aspects of gameplay.
