Author's comments and explanations:
This is an epic space adventure in a hurry.

Starflight is a large space exploration game, very much like Star Control 2. You are supposed to gather resources and interact with various alien species on your quest to destroy the Crystal Planet. However, the initial resources are enough to complete the game.

Shortly: Get egg and orb. Blow the planet.

Here's my flythrough:

Name the captain: A
Recruit the crew: a human called A
Assign "the crew" to all positions on the ship: science officer, navigator, engineer, communications, doctor.

Sell class 1 engine, buy class 4 engine.
Name the ship: A

Buy fuel with the rest of the money.

Travel to the solar system at {143, 115}.

Encounter droids.
Answer "no" to their questions.
Manipulate luck so that the droids won't attack you.
Pick up Black Egg (a bomb) from the surface of the planet.

Travel to the solar system at {132, 165}.

Encounter droids again.
Answer "no" to their questions.
Manipulate luck so that the droids won't attack you.
Land on the planet to pick up Crystal Orb (needed to penetrate the defences of the Crystal Planet) and manipulate luck to get a good amount of fuel from the nearby resources.

Travel to the solar system at {192, 152} to blow the Crystal Planet.

Watch the ending two times in a row to hear the drums go out of synch.

Note: Input can be ended earlier, but it makes the movie longer.

I watched this a few times and could not decide whether to submit it or not, so here it is. Please keep the debate civilized.

Truncated: I have decided to reject this movie because of low entertainment value.
