In this screen saver there are two basic parameters available to you, "Speed" and "Alien Saucers".

"Speed" controls the screen saver's attempted frame rate and ranges from 5 to 50 frames per second. Of course, the actual frame rate achieved will depend upon your computer's ability to keep up. As such, you may not be able to get a full 50 frames per second even if you request it. Setting the speed lower will use less CPU, which may be important if you are running background processes such as SETI@home or a web server. The default setting is 30 frames per second.

"Alien Saucers" controls the flying saucers. If it is checked, they will appear. If not checked, then the flying saucers will stay at home and not appear during screen saver operation.
