This FAQ is a guide to the video game Battlecruiser 3000AD ("Battlecruiser 3000 A.D."). The text has been written for Battlecruiser 3000AD version 2.09, the final version of the original game. However people attempting to play earlier versions, or even the later Battlecruiser Millennium, should find this guide useful. This FAQ is intended to complement game documentation, not replace it. The development and release of "BC3K" is notable (for all the wrong reasons) in both video game and internet history: This guide contains a detailed historical background.
