Three astronauts, in an attempt to knock an asteroid out of its collision course with earth, are transported to a dead alien world, uncover an ancient alien machine. The machine transports them to an extinct planet, where strange and mysterious aliens guide them in their search to find a way home, and perhaps save other aliens trapped in an alternate dimension.

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 called Toshi Olema who co-funded the mission (since NASA was lacking budget) and therefore became part of the crew. He was later changed to Dr. Toshi Olema, a brilliant but shy female physicist, but was eventually written out of the game completely. All artwork produced thereafter showed three astronauts, even though the footprint of the fourth astronaut can still be seen. See more
