Any of you heard of this game? It's a free MMORPG space conquest style of game that is simply a blast! On the surface, it's a simple space combat
game where you do research, build ships, and explore/conquer planets, expanding your empire. After you get used to the interface, however, it becomes
so much more.
After you've gotten used to it, you can play several different roles, depending on the race you select. You can play an economic game, a battle game,
a conquest game, an imperialist style game, and, regardless of race, a political game. I've been playing the game long enough to where I've even
written an FAQ on "stacking," which is how you set up your fleet to be the most effective in taking out other fleets. Every ship has strengths and
weaknesses, so there is no universal, end all be all fleet you can create, although some try (I like attacking those folks, they're easy to flatten
You can also establish a federation of up to 21 different empires. Back in the day I had started one named Seaweed Rapture and had an epic battle
against the "old guard," the federation that had been #1 for over a year. It was beautiful! I had covert ops in their fed, alliances with other
feds, and even uncovered agents in my federation which I fed semi-bogus information when needed (otherwise they were given true, uncritical
information so it seemed like I trusted em
). After about two months, my fed was number 2, and a month after that we had toppled the top federation,
causing most of the members to quit and join up my fed or one of my satellite feds (since you can only have 21 members).
So, I'm thinking, we need to get 20 other ATSers and start an Above Top Secret federation and dominate the galaxy! Plus, it's one of the most
popular online space conquest games out there, so it'd be good publicity for ATS, too! After all, if we use our collective intelligence and our
knowledge of conspiracy to blow all of those other, petty little federations to kingdom come, they may think about coming here to find out more about
this incredible site that spawns space masters!

Click on Galactic Conquest. I haven't ever gotten any junk mail from them, and when I got my new email address that was one of the first places I
changed it. That and ATS. No spam
Any questions or anything I can help ya with, please feel free to ask. My name is QBert on Galactic Conquest's Real Time server (you get a turn every
8 seconds). Either ask me there or on this thread. Hope to see many of you out there!
