From the back cover: Quad Load has 8 Spaceships, 8 Space Station chips, 1 sheet of stickers, 2 6-sided dice, 20 damage tokens, 50 cards, 2 movement markers. --- Little plastic spaceships moved with movement markers provided. Miniatures movement, but not based in physics like Full Thrust. Use cards to move, shoot, and shield. Use your space station to refuel (draw more cards). There are also special cards such as Tractor Beams, HyperSpace movement, Shield Drain, Energy Drain, Long Shot and Quad Load (burst of power for both move and fire!). Last space ship surviving wins.
