It is the dawn of the 22nd century, and the conquest of space has been monopolized by a handful of hugely ambitious mega-corporations. A delicate and vulnerable balance is maintained, but now, at the very edge of the solar system, a discovery has been made which will tip the scales forever — and send one ship and crew on an epic interstellar odyssey.

Hello everyone,

First up is a UNSC fortress/staging station. When the first Outer Colonies began to fall, the UNSC saw the need for a place to stand in between the falling colonies to hold the line a little longer and to provide aid for the fleeing civilian ships. After some time, the first fortress/staging station FS-0001 was created. FS-0001 was easily deployable, sporting enough weapons and armor to hold out against a small assault and having enough space to provide relief for several vessels. Expect this station to show its face in the campaign.

UNSC staging station

One of ONI's best kept secrets has been this ship; the Point of no Return. Although ONI has many facilities and bases, this ship is used by the top of ONI as a command ship and secure conference location. Only a handful of people know of this ship. Further information is classified.

Point of no Return briefing

A huge platform that is capable of repairing and/or refitting up to six ships of Destroyer size or smaller at a time. These platforms were scarce throughout the UNSC fleet, but there were several who were constantly moving around to keep up with the UNSC fleets that were getting cut into pieces trying to defend their planets. Later in the war, these platforms were used as shields against the Covenant's plasma. But which of these two designs do you like best?

And the final new ship we've probably all been seeing a lot lately; the UNSC Infinity. Build as a last resort if Earth should fall, the Infinity possesses all of the Forerunner technology the UNSC ever found and extracted and is armed to the teeth. When the war ended it became the UNSC's new flagship.

Briefing of the Infinity

An idea I have for the campaign is to include this ship; the Gungnir. It's a refitted Phoenix class Colony ship that has been in the war from the beginning. It has been under heavy attack several times and been patched up several times, but it always had to be rushed into service again. So its decline is showing.


I've mentioned a campaign once or twice now, and it is something I have planned. It will, however, be one of the last things created for this mod. In other news; my music artist is having internet trouble, so I can't upload his work just yet, but I will as soon as I have it!

Until next time,

Yeah its a fantastic game, only thing is its a little to good! i've got a 1.2ghz athlon with a geforce mx 5400 or summat, and it runs fine most the game, but on the last big battle it just died, so i had to turn everything off lol.

I loved playing Nexus, but because it's just so visually stunning it be super nice if i could just view a replay of the action. I mean it's already setup... all it needs is for the replay to be saved and just get rid of the menus, that should be enough for starters.

I've always been frustrated with lots of games where i'd just like to sit back and watch, it seems like this option used to exist ages ago but just faded away into oblivion, sigh...

Could this perhaps be asking for a mod! :)

Realistic ship actions, awesome camera (especially when you look from the boosters or from a ship under fire, camera shakes like... lol)

Overall it's better than HW2 IMO, intense tactic sense, ships fire are fierce. It brings us to a new level of space battle, but if they can add wide screen support, it would have been much, much better!!!
