Galactic Command Echo Squad SE is a high-end and very challenging space/planetary combat game. It offers a thrilling campaign, instant action combat sessions as well as a sandbox mode allowing you to explore the game's universe while battling hostile Insurgent forces among others.

Missions take place in space and on the surface of planets and range from basic escort and recon missions, to highly engaging and dangerous tactical strike missions.

Many years have passed since the Gammulans invaded the sol system in full force and all but decimated the inhabitants of the planetary systems. cites were
completely devastated and entire continents wiped out.

In their wake, they left a splintered Galactic Command (GALCOM) alliance still engaged in a fierce battle with insurgents who oppose the alliance.

Stretched to the limit Galactic Command scientists developed a new space craft that is lighter, faster and more powerful than any before it. Episode One begins with this new Engstrom class carrier's first day in a live combat engagement.

Your Echo fighter squadron of fighters has been assigned to the WildStar battle fleet led by the GCV-Excalibur in operations against the Insurgent uprising.

As an Elite Force Pilot and leader of the Echo fighter wing assigned to IIS starstation in orbit around Titan, your fighter squad is tasked with leading a series of defensive and offensive missions against the Insurgents occupying Sol territories.

Unlike our other larger capital ship series (Battlecruiser, Universal Combat) Echo Squad SE takes place within the confines of the Terran Quadrant which spans the following star systems. So in sandbox mode, you are restricted to this quadrant.


Echo Squad was first developed in 2007-2008 for Turner’s GameTap service. When that service was sold off (to Metaboli), the game rights reverted. A few months later we decided to update and improve the game. It was later released in early 2009 as Echo Squad SE. The game uses our legacy game engine first released in 2009 for the original Echo Squad SE. The much larger Universal Combat Collector’s Edition v2.0 game is also derived from this engine.

By popular demand, we decided to remaster and release an updated version of the game for the first time on Steam.

Game crashed three times while trying to play it. That's as much as I plan to fool with it for a free game I was given in apology over another game. Can't say I got to play it too much because of all the trouble, so take that as you will.
Here's some video of what it looks like played if you're interested, or read the other reviews.

Here's the error my Steam now has (going to have to reboot) where it thinks the game is still running but it's not. It's not a huge thing - I just gotta reboot but it illustrates the issues.

This is easily the worst piece of garbage I've seen all year.

Arrow keys control your ship. Your ship looks like MS paint just vomited all over a canvas. The plot is horrible and whomever wrote it had a hard on for military terminology that he doesn't understand.

♥♥♥♥ this game.

I recommend this game with one important caveat:

The caveat is that you have the attention span, and the patience, and make a sincere effort to learn the game. If that sounds like you, this game can be very rewarding, can serve as a great introduction to the 3000AD universe, and provide you with many hours of space and planetary exploration, combat, etc.

On the other hand, if you're the type who will hop in, spend 5 minutes blindly clicking on everything before saying "I don't know what I'm doing. This game sucks" and uninstall... you'd be better off sticking to more mainstream titles which offer more guidance. I don't say that as an insult. I say that because, like most all Derek Smart games, Galactic Command will not hold your hand, and that's exactly the way it's intended to be.

I'm new to this series, myself, and have had a few false starts with this, and other 3000AD games. However, having watched videos of people on YT playing other games (such as Universal Combat and Battlecruiser Millenium), reading up on the series overall, and seeing all of what these games actually offer, I was intrigued enough to dive in and really give it a go.

After some time of going through the tutorial, making frequent use of the in-game tutorial docs (press Ctrl-H to open it, and just H to return to the game), jotting down some of the more common commands on a notepad for easy reference, I found myself comfortable enough to navigate through space, and get down to a planet's surface myself. I still haven't dove into combat, yet. However, from the little I've done so far, I'm already seeing the potential this game has, and am excited to get into it further. I'm not using a flight stick, or a gamepad. I'm using mouse and keyboard, and am finding it quite playable. I may move on to a flight stick at a later time, but for right now, it's working for me.

If you'd like to get a good idea of what a Derek Smart game is *actually* like, go check out Lazy Chan on You Tube. Specifically, check out his series of video tutorials on Universal Combat - a game which shares the same universe and overall "feel" as Galactic Command. I watched a few of those, and it's what convinced me to really dive in and give Galactic Command a serious try. I'm glad I did.

Here's a link to his first video: /watch?v=b1Lo3NK790o (just paste that after Again, this is of a different game from the 3000AD catalog, but it gives a good idea of what you can expect from a Derek Smart game.. *if* you actually take the time to learn and dig in.

But in all, be open-minded, and really give it a sincere try. Don't let the frequent bashing from others make up your mind for you. And after all, the demo's free.

Happy Exploring!

Derek Smart makes the best Space Sims, ignore the hater kids that won't read the manual.....Just "SHAKE IT OFF" like Taylor Swift says :)
'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
