Official overview

In the bloody aftermath of an intergalactic war between powerful alien races, a once-thriving network of starships, space stations, and planets are left lifeless and bear the scars of the apocalypse. As Stationmaster, it is up to you to rebuild the abandoned space stations, reunite the survivors, and bring the old Empire back to its former glory.

Populated by diverse alien species, such as the ecologically-minded and laid back Karmarama or the caring and gentle Dahenese Sirens, each space station comes to life with crime, trade, entertainment, racial tensions, and friendships. With these factors in mind, reconstruct and operate your station by managing the diverse and varied resident aliens while you also protect them against threats such as meteor showers, alien vermin infestations, roving bands of space pirates, and outbreaks of particularly virulent plagues. It’s not easy rebuilding civilization from the ruins, but the future is in your hands. Will you rise up to the challenge and build a Startopia that is ideal for everyone?

Patches and modifications

Official patches

Unofficial patches


  • Custom content: Since the fact that the campaign is not overly long or complex and that the sandbox mode may not be endlessly satisfying, you may opt to partake in this cream of the crop set of user missions, which should offer you plenty of extra hours of fun.

Known issues

Video Display

  • Incessant flickering: For most users changing "Display Method" in the video options from 'Flip with Vsync' to 'Blit' will eliminate the problem.
  • Some users experience stretched widescreen on their PCs. This may be fixed by downloading and applying this file.
