Space Crew is an RPG that follows 6 brave crew members as they complete missions and defeat enemies, all in the name of their home base, Athena. From delivering packages, to rescuing scientists, to coming to the aid of fellow space stations under attack by the Phasmid, you'll invade, evade, and hyperjump your way through space and time to ensure the safety of the galaxy. Level up your crew to gain more skills and take on higher risk missions until you've reach your final fight with the leader of the Phasmid. Take out high ranked Champions and collect artifacts along the way to gain reputation and unlock upgrades for your Crew and their ship. You have the option to customize both your crew and the ship, from their names to their looks, allowing you to really personalize the experience of this Star Trek parody of an indie. You'll need to boldly go where only few others have gone before to get this Platinum, so with that, Godspeed, Captains.
Step 1: Play through the Campaign while defeating the Champions as they appear
For this step, you'll just be playing the game as it was intended. The missions that progress the story are all marked with a star next to them, but you'll undoubtedly need to do a handful of side missions to get enough money and rep to upgrade your crew and ship so they can take on the more hefty battles. The autosave point for the game is when you're in the hangar, so if at any point during any mission you start to feel overwhelmed, you can close the game app and restart it to try the mission again from the start. You shouldn't need to use this too much at the beginning of the game, but it can come in incredibly handy as you get towards the end game as the missions get increasingly harder with each new phase you enter. As you do the main missions, you'll also want to keep an eye out for the Champions. There are 8 in total. When one becomes available, it will be added to the Bounty List (on the mission tab, hit to scroll over one screen to see them). You need to get all of them done on one save file, so make sure you're being adamant about going after them. Take your time through the Campaign!! When you can upgrade, choose upgrades that provide shields, efficiency, and power - in that order. The less time you spend repairing all your modules, the more time you can spend killing enemy Phasmids.
When your Crew Members reach level 6, they'll be able to train in a secondary skill. You want to make sure all of the skills (save for Pilot/Captain as it won't be available) have at least one additional person trained in it. That way if things don't quite go as planned, you can move your crew members around accordingly without worrying about any single station being un-manned. What you actually choose, though, will be up to your individual play style so play around with them a little bit until you find a layout that works for you. Once you're done with this step, you will have earned:
That must hurt
We're gonna fight
We're gonna win!
Nerves of steel
Resistance is.. not futile?
I feel safer already!
Kill 'em all
What's a circle in three dimensions?

Step 2: Clean-up / Miscellaneous Trophies
After you're done with the Campaign, you'll be able to work through the miscellaneous trophies on a new save file. All of them can be done as soon as you complete the Tutorial except for Spaghettification which requires a Black Hole. These are only available in Phase 2, but since you already have a pretty good feel for the game, it shouldn't take you too long to get to where you need to be to get this done. For tips on the fires and how to grind them out, please see Fire Fighter and Nature abhors a vacuum (these aren't nearly as bad as the description makes them sound). Bittersweet success , Escape velocity , and Back from the black can all be done in one mission, making those not too difficult at all (see Bittersweet Success or Back from the Black for a video guide on how to get them done). Outside of those, you'll just be grinding out repairing your modules (if you didn't already get to 100), repairing your Reactor when it goes critical, and saving some crew members before they meet their demise. This step shouldn't take you too long to crank out and once you're done with it, you will earn:
