A space combat simulator for the PC by Volition Inc, in which the player is a pilot for the Galactic Terran Alliance. An alien race called the Shivans is the enemy, and the GTA must ally with their former enemies, the Vasudans in order to save themselves from destruction. Also refered to as: Descent: FreeSpace

Freespace is one of the best games I have played.

Freespace is a space flying simulation, as odd as that sounds, as it would be really hard to accuratley simulate two or three or four spaceships hurtling at each other, without taking from fiction.

Basically the story of Freespace is thus: there is a war between an alien race and the humans, but soon a strange new alien race attacks both the races (human and alien) and forces them into the first great war of space.

The game's story really pulses with tension and power as you fight through the war. You slowly go through it and get new ships and new weapons, to combat the new alien threat.

The game's fighting is a bunch of fun, with alot of different missions. This game is alot of fun and most sci-fi freaks will like this game, as will space combat simulation fans. This game shows one of the best space sim games ever!

Coalition of anarchists, libertarians, and techno fiends based in Toronto, Canada. They regularly organize small free events under their 'yurt', a large enclosed structure concieved as a way to party outdoors in the Canadian winter. Certain members of the crew purchased and retrofitted a yellow school bus for a cross-country trip, powered entirely by biodiesel they were refining themselves, on the way, from grease-trap donations. They are also one of the leading collectives involved in throwing the annual Teknival, a free festival in the Ontario back country, attended by a wide variety of ravers, punks, thugs, hippies, anarchists, and kooks. The membership tends to shift around in an informal way as you might expect with an organization of this nature.

The goal is essentially quite simple, from what I can tell - stop working for the Man and start making some changes, however small, to how people live in this society.

Update (2006): FreeSpace could no longer be said to be an active organization in Toronto's illicit freetek underground. Organizations such as Weskodyne, Next Offensive, and pink:sox are currently much more active.
