You play as Trace, a rookie pilot who must defend Earth against the Protoids, a race of evil brain-eating aliens. His quest will take him to the farthest reaches of space, [[StockFootage where everything looks the same and joystick wiggling is mandatory each time an enemy ship is shot down.]]

The game was [=MSTed=] by WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}. If you've got half an hour to kill, it's definitely worth watching.

Not to be confused with the UsefulNotes/{{Intellivision}} [[VideoGame/StarStrike1981 game of the same name]].

!!This work contains examples of:

* ASpaceMarineIsYou
* AsteroidThicket
* BrainFood
* DisproportionateRetribution: The Protoid leader swears to exterminate humanity after a captive escapes, denying it a meal.
* FlippingTheBird: A variation. Captain Rammer swings his hand from under his chin as a big "fuck you" to the Protoids after his hilariously chaotic escape.
* FrickinLaserBeams
* TheFuture
* HeyItsThatGuy: Pete of Warehouse13 plays a pilot who you may call "Snoopy", if you survive your first mission.
* HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace
* LargeHam: The Admiral In Spades. And Also to a lesser degree the Commander.
* OffTheShelfFX
* RailShooter
* SpaceshipGirl
* StockFootage: For every enemy ship that is destroyed, the gameplay stops so you can see: Your ship's lasers firing, the enemy pilot reacting, his fighter exploding, your fighter's AI/wingmen congratulating you, ...joystick waggling, and your wingmen giving you a command, before gameplay finally resumes. Every. Single. Time.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: With all the stupid statements made throughout the game, the rave lasers and infamous joystick-waggling footage were what made it into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlqvOCMRgNg this]] video. Considering they get the grand majority of screen time, this is not without justification.
* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: Type A after every single level.
