Main article: Fragile Allegiance

K240 was succeeded by Fragile Allegiance, which is essentially a PC remake of the game but with improved graphics and user interface. Many of the buildings, ships, missiles, and game concepts are the same. However, the Human Empire is dissolved in a coup, and united with several alien races in a multiracial Federation. There are also gameplay differences resulting from ships being given limited range as well as espionage.
