Interstellar Trader 2 lets you play as the owner of a start-up galactic merchant business. You want to make money, but standing in your way is a fickle marketplace, space-faring pirates, and a host of random events. As you hop from planet to planet, buying and selling your goods, you can upgrade your vessel (or even purchase a brand-new one). Protect yourself from pirates with escort ships, or buy contracts from the weasel prime ministers, who can provide you with a respite from attack. You'll even get a chance to try your luck at the Galactic Casino.
