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.

The economy is an important aspect to the games -- the only wares that are generated without resources are energy cells, and ships at shipyards[[note]]Ships built by the player, however, have resource and time requirements[[/note]]. Everything else requires wares to produce. A satellite factory, for example, may require energy, processed food, and microchips to produce satellites.
