 Backstory


The United League of Planets, the greatest peaceful union mankind has ever known, lies in shambles. The once proud coallition of humanity's greatest super-powers now wage bitter war across the cosmos. Now, a devestating war threatens to tear apart all that has become of nearly two centuries of peace.

In grand, imperial fashion the Antarean Empire and its allies seek no less then the utter destruction and domination of the spaceways. Having grown disillusioned with the stagnant pseudo-democracy of the ULP having been disgusted by the League Navy's treatment of so-called "rebel-factions" (The Massacre of Tuatha Rigel, Blood March of Covington), the Antarean Empire seceded from League. This precipitated a split, and eventually dissolution of the ULP as a single entity. As such, the Antareans see themselves as the rightful heirs to supreme galactic power and regard their fellow former League members as guilty by consent, and thus criminals.

Now, the scattered remants of the ULP are now locked in bitter struggle with the Antarean Alliance, the single largest "empire" in all known space. As the massive armadas of the depleted but still sizeable United Space Navy and Antarean Allied Navy grappled at one another, the rest of the galaxy watches with alarm, praying that the winning side will not turn its gaze outward once again. However ten years of war and tragedy have begun to take their toll as new galactic powers begin to emerge along with the discovery of new technologies.

Alliances are formed and broken, conspiracies hatched and foiled, all of this in the shadow of the longest recorded battle in mankind's space-faring history. Both sides have prepared daring and desperate bids to attain victory, but the question is no longer who will come out the winner, but rather how many will die ere the last battle is fought. A famous keeper of past knowledge put it best "In a war on heaven, angels fall first.
