The Control Panel is the user interface from which you play Astrowars. There are seven top level screens tabbed across the page, each covering a different area of activity, plus links to secondary screens with more options for specific tasks. Six of these are visible to both allied and solo players. Note: the Trade screen only appears once you gain player level 1.
