Quest

The Empire of Gheera is doomed to be destroyed. The Pantap's defense forces have no chance against the powerful legions of the legendary Star Emperor, whose hunger for power knows no limits. The final fall is only a question of time.

In this situation, Commander Eftalan Quest, a grim, ambitious man, who leads his spacecraft MEGATAO unrelentingly, starts out for an almost hopeless expedition: He wants to find the mythical Planet Of Origin - the world where, as the tales tell, all life in universe once began.

But there are still other legends about this world...

Kelwitts Stern

(Kelwitt's Star)


On a distant planet near the center of our galaxy lives an alien race whose custom dictates the naming of a star for each newborn. Their science of astronomy is very advanced in order to find enough new stars for the population, and they believe it brings luck to visit one's own star at least once in a lifetime.

So, one day our sun is given to the young alien named Kelwitt. But when he comes to visit "his" star, he falls down on earth, making a crash landing in the middle of the Swabian Alps. A sensation? Not really, because it is December 1999. Everybody awaits the year 2000, and nobody has the time to care about alien invaders...
