Synopsis

Plot

The intergalactic liner, The Isaac Asimov, met with an unexplained disaster when on its way, with over 1,000 passengers, to the terraformed planets of the Seuxarian System.

When out on your regular patrol of the space lanes, two centuries later, you come across the drifting hulk of The Isaac Asimov. You decide to explore, to see if you can determine what went wrong. However, no sooner have you entered the hold of the wrecked ship than your own ship, which you left tethered outside, explodes. You must find a Safety-Pod on board the Asimov, or die.

The best thing about this BASIC type-in is its cool title. It is a variation of Werewolves & Wanderer, by the same author. It's just a text-based RPG with random combats (no puzzles, no objects, and no interest unless those are your cup of tea). The original book listing looks OK, but some ready-typed versions can be found online with have buggy additions. I have provided a fixed PC version just to complement the fine TRS version available.
