Tensions have been high with the alien "bug" races of the galaxy - the Zothren - and your ship has crash landed on the planet Hive IV, one of the more renegade "bug" planets. Setting up a perimeter, you survey the surrounding terrain for debris from your ship, only to find it scattered everywhere. Then you see them - Zothren scouts, archers, slashers, and even the monstrous brutes. This is more than a scouting party - this is a war party! An SOS has been sent and a ship in the sector has responded, but can it get to you before the "bugs" overwhelm your crew? It's all in the hands of the crew - your hands! Alien Uprising is a cooperative game in which players direct 3-5 Crewmen of a crashed Lennox-Class starship through a desperate battle with the enraged Zothrens.
