In Star Voyager, the player has to save the Capital Starport (although the player never sees it in the game).[3] A two-player mode allows two people to become either the Star Voyager or the enemy fleet.[3] The commander of the Star Voyager has the ability to use photon torpedoes or a laser beam in order to stop the enemy.[3] Star portals play a role in transporting the Star Voyager into another part of the galaxy.[3] The game ends when the player dies or when he runs out of energy.[citation needed]
