The series from ''X-Tension'' and beyond allows the player to [[UniversalDriversLicense pilot almost anything they can see]], from tiny scout ships to [[MileLongShip five kilometer long destroyers and carriers]]. There are many classes of ships - [[StandardSciFiFleet fighters, carriers, corvettes, bombers, freighters]], etc - and each race has their own ship set with their own unique advantages and disadvantages. [[PlayerMooks Player-owned ships]] can be commanded to perform tasks, such as patrolling, exploring, or trading.

The series does have an overall plot and extensive backstory but most players find it to be far outshined by the WideOpenSandbox empire-building aspect. For that reason, the plot summary is [[Synopsis/{{X}} on another page]]. In ''X'' you can just play through the plot, content to stay in your puny little [[SpaceFighter fighter]] or [[SpaceTrucker freighter]] and not straying much farther than your starting sector, or you can create a [[NGOSuperPower universe-spanning trading empire, all but controlling the economy and with enough military power to squash all who dare oppose you]]. You can also do things that you're not really meant to do, such as almost completely wiping out a race from the universe. It takes a hell of a lot of military resources, and it'll probably break the economy unless you supply it with that race's goods yourself, but nobody's actively ''stopping'' you from doing it. The only reason you can't destroy ''everything'' is because the game engine tries to keep the economy balanced and will slowly recreate destroyed stations if need be.
