Star Sonata provides a rich fabric in which the players create and define the universe. Be a cunning trader of goods exotic and mundane. A scurrilous pirate preying on the weak. A bounty hunter tracking down the galaxy's most wanted vermin. An explorer searching lost planets for forgotten civilizations. A builder and administrator of space stations, colonies, and possibly even a famed empire. Advance in a deep skill tree, using your increasing wealth and knowledge to obtain rare spaceships, devastating weapons, powerful shields, cloaking devices, drones, scanners, and rare artifacts the human race has never seen. Create your own team and raise it to dominance, eventually seizing control of the entire universe and being crowned emperor.
