I came across this game at a con and decided to give it a try. The alien races and setting are intriguing yet grounded. The game play is smooth and fast (though it took me a bit to get used to the d6 system, having been fully indoctrinated in the d20 system). The focus is clearly on role-playing instead of roll-playing, which is just where I like it.
If you are looking for a new science-fiction role-playing game with streamlined rules and interesting alien races to explore, then Solar Echoes is sure to satisfy!
