you can beat the game in less than 4 hours, it's one of the award you can accomplish. but if you want higher overall score at the end of the game by completing all sectors and mining all ores and finding all alien techs, it takes more than 6~8 hours per run. To find all 24 alien techs, you need to complete all 3 difficulties. so that's around 20~25 hours total. then if you want finish all awards, that takes more hours.

It may not be obvious because you may not have access to it yet. There should be a rectangular icon on the sector with uncle Jeb, but if you haven't found the satellite with the location it will look grayed out. If that's the case, then mine the adjacent sectors till you find the right satellite.

I'll add- awesome game! If anyone is on the fence about buying, snap it up, you won't be dissapointed!
