From the introduction: "This adult intelligence level game has been designed to minimize luck and maximize skill. The parts of this game which are applicable to all players are explained first. Each ship in the game has a secret weapon in addition to its main weapon. The rules for each secret weapon are written on the backside of the appropriate ship hit record. To increase your enjoyment of your first game, learn only the secret weaponry of the ship you'll captain. If your friends will also restrict their learning to the ships they command, no player will know what to expect from the other and the excitement of the unknown will closely simulate "real life" conditions. It also gives all players the same disadvantage and challenge. Special mismatch rules at the end of these rules tell you how to preserve the challenge of the "unknown" enemy ships."

The product advertisements are presented side-by-side with the rules, making for an interesting presentation. Even though the cover artist is not credited, the signature "D. M. Laughlin 73" appears on the cover.
