Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command. Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray. Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.
18 months after the catastrophic journey of the 14th Battle Group, the civil war between the Alliance and the Federation enters its apocalyptic final phase. Prepare for what FreeSpace 2 fans are already calling one of the greatest space sim campaigns of all time.

The bloody civil war between the United Earth Federation and the Galactic Terran/Vasudan Alliance is drawing to an end. A single day of skirmishes detonates more megatonnage of ordnance than every conflict of the twentieth century combined. The conflict is escalating: nuclear strikes on civilian targets. Subspace missile strikes. Assassinations. Treachery. The survival of two great civilizations is on the line, and neither will back down.
You are Ensign Noemi Laporte, unblooded fighter pilot in the Federation Navy. Torn between your upbringing as an Ubuntu citizen and the exigencies of survival, you discover something dark with in yourself...an uncanny, almost preternatural instinct for killing.
The end is coming. What will you become to survive?
