Trivia

Several pieces of artwork for the game showed four astronauts instead of three, originating from the second version of the game which had four main characters. The fourth character was a Japanese business man who co-funded the mission and therefore became part of the crew. He was eventually written out of the game, and all artwork produced thereafter showed three astronauts. See more »

Quotes

Cora Miles: My rule is: if you can pick it up, take it with you, cause you never know when you might need it.
Ken Borden: I have the same rule, Cora, but I thought it only applied to women in bars. If you can pick her up -

Ken Borden: .
Cora Miles: [Laughs] Careful, Ken. You don't wanna find yourself getting quoted as a sexist pig in Maggie's article.
Maggie Robbins: I'm not here to spy on you.
Boston Low: Lighten up, Robbins, they're just teasing you. If they thought you were *really* a spy, they'd never talk freely on the open frequency.

User Reviews

Not too bad. Lacked humor but had reason for that.
7 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I felt this game was not bad. The game had a great plot and made you feel like what you were doing was going to SERIOUSLY mess you up if you messed up. It lacked humor but I felt that was to highlight the seriousness of your current situation. My only complaint was that some of the voice acting was rather bland. Mainly Robert Patrick and Mari Weiss. It was like they were just reading their scripts and felt this was below their talents.
