Mars is beautiful.
When I say beautiful, I don’t mean the landscape -- although there is kind of an eerie serenity to it. No, what I really mean are the opportunities. My family wasn’t thrilled when I decided to take the job off world, but I wasn’t about to let the chance to become more than just an intern pass me by.

The future lies in the hands of people like us. We must rise above these failings and lead humanity to greater prosperity.

Video games normally take liberties with the size of the universe. We know the universe is big but we frequently trivialize the immense size of the galaxy.
Even scientists seem to trivialize this with questions like "Why haven't we detected aliens?". The answer might be because our radio signals haven't even reached a trivial distance of the milky way galaxy.
Zooming way way out to our local neighborhood.
Now this is zooming out to about as far as we can go and still name stars without skipping over lots of them.
NOTE: Our radio signals haven't even come close to leaving this area yet. Also, we only know the distances of these starts within +/- 8 light years. A lot of people think we have nailed down where all these stars are.
And all that fits in the dot within that box.
and that last screenshot fits within the red box in this screenshot.
Now, in the new Star Control game, we are going to do our best to mix accuracy with gameplay. But hopefully you get the idea of just how insane the scales really are.
