Explore the galaxy
When starting a new game in Galactic Crew, a random galaxy is procedurally generated for you to explore. There are asteroid fields which can be used to mine rare resources, space stations that offer great deals every day and many solar systems that can be explored.
Whenever you enter a solar system a random event occurs. This can be anything from meeting a civilian merchant or a prospecting miner to space pirates and abandoned vessels which can offer mysteries, dangers and a lot of treasures.
Exploring an entire galaxy does not only offer many rewards, it can also be very dangerous. Therefore, it is important to have a spaceship you can rely on and a crew you can trust. Each spaceship has one ore more slots for turrets, like military laser turrets or civilian mining lasers. By using powerful laser weapons for your attacks and using strong shield generators for your defense, you can successfully fight the dangers of the outer space.
However, some enemies will have advanced equipment like teleporters to teleport their boarding crews directly into your ship. Make sure, your crew is well-trained to counter such attacks. When you want to play a more aggressive role like being a space pirate by yourself, you can use the same technology to board enemy vessels!
