New Players.

First of all fill in the start-up form. This will take you though the steps to create a nexus account and a ship, and even allow you to submit some orders for the next day. You can have a quick look at the Sign-up Walkthrough to familiarise yourself with the process.

Next familiarise yourself with the game. Introduction gives some some useful links to articles written for Intergalactic News. The library also gives a lot of information. Take some time to read the general forum to have an idea of what is happening at the moment and introduce yourself (IC and OOC if you want).

When you register as a new player, looking for affiliation is automatically enabled so you will see the recruitment forum and you can find an affiliation to suit you. You don't have to hurry to do this, have a chat with people and see who you like the sound of. If for some reason you don't like the affiliation you join you can leave and join another so its not the end of the world. If you don't like the look of any of the affiliations you can stay as Trainee player (TRN) but this limits your ships to a small though relatively safe region of space.

If you have a problem with your start up account not working properly, not receiving turns, or have any other problems then either send Mica a PM on the forum or write to with the statement Phoenix Startup Player Problem in the subject line.

Returning Players.

If you used to play BSE many years ago and want to have a go at this new version then first of all welcome back. If you have no assets in the game then register as a new player and go from there. If you think that you have assets remaining in the game or if there is a particular position that you want to resume then the best thing is to contact Mica to discuss it with him.

Duplicate IP.

If you have already created an account and then try to make a second one on the same IP address you will be prompted to indicate the reason for a second account. In the past people have created false accounts to gain access to more than one affiliation and so moderation of second accounts was introduced. There are many situations where a second account is genuine, such as relations or students living together, so please just be truthful in the start up form.

It seems like only yesterday that Kang was dropping napalm on a group of refugees fleeing from the latest ‘accidental’ orbital bombardment of a Starbase in Yank. You’d be surprised how easy it is to get away with that sort of thing when there are warships in orbit shooting things up. Nobody ever notices the Flagritz in the hover car with the napalm.

Which leads Kang to reflect that it has been such a long time since the last orbital bombardment of a Starbase.

But not so long since Kang last poured napalm onto refugees.

Which just goes to show you can never have too much of a good thing.

A good thing like more old news!

Puny meatsacks, you make Kang sad.

Here is more old news.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Your beloved editor-in-chief Overlord Kang asks you, puny meatsacks, what could possibly be better than old news?


Kang spoils you, he really does.

Kang is very good at spoiling meatsacks like you.

Spoiling you permanently.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Greetings, puny flesh-things of the Peripheries. Your beloved Overlord Kang trusts that your sacks of flesh are ripe and ready to burst and freeze in the merciless cold of interstellar vacuum.

Returning from an unexpected illness, Kang is forced to pause and reflect upon your mortality, and question why so many of you worthless meatsacks have still not leapt into a torpedo tube and had yourselves launched into an asteroid at point blank range. Or as Kang likes to call it ‘Dropping the kids off at the mine’.

Prepare your disgusting fleshy auditory sensors for what can only be described as out of date news! As Kang runs a series of catch-up editions of the galaxies favourite journal of bile and hatred.

Any complaints, and Kang politely invites you to step inside his patented ‘Complaints Tube’. Kang assures you. It is perfectly safe in there. Please ignore the stains.

The puny human meatsacks appear to have unleashed their vaunted Uber-GP once again, and have released the following terse statement to the press:

***** Inter Galactic News *****

How do you fit a dead meatsack in a blender?

Feet first, of course.

How do you get them out again?

Your beloved Editor Overlord Kang has frequently complained that the SSS-HQ is located in the most dingy rain-soaked continent on Mobile Bay. Many are the interns Kang has to brutally slaughter to express his disappointment at the weather.

With this in mind, Kang has decided to trigger runaway global warming.

Please send more hydrocarbons to Mobile Bay that they might be set on fire.
