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. (StrategyInformer has very kindly provided a mirror for us.)

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.

Hey everybody! Just wanted to deliver a quick update, since we've neglected ModDB for too long.

As those of you who've been following our forum on Hard Light Productions know, we released Act 3 of our story, 'Tenebra', and we hope everybody enjoyed it. If you had technical or gameplay issues, please let us know.

We're also closing in on finished with our voice acting efforts for Acts 1 and 2 - please get involved! We're currently particularly interested in women's voices, both because we need to cast our female characters and because we want our cast to represent the diversity of the FreeSpace future. Once these efforts are complete, we're planning to release a standalone Director's Cut version of Blue Planet that will not require FreeSpace 2.

Hammerfall

Our short story 'Morrigan in the Sunglare' will appear in an upcoming issue of Clarkesworld, one of the finest science fiction and fantasy magazines in the world. We're eager to hear your response.

Lastly, as ever, work continues on our ongoing story. As always, the demands of life and chance mean that the pace fluctuates, but the team's all here and happy and we're looking forward to bringing you the conclusion of the war between Alliance and Federation.

Gotta say, just finished my first play through (had to fight with Antipodes and finally figured it out), and I have so much to say I can't really begin. It was fantastic! Exceptionally impressive gameplay that was challenging, one of the missions even rivaled the infamous AoA mission Forced Entry, and the story told was just incredible, didn't see that ending coming. You guys are fantastic and thanks for all the hard work you guys have put into this mod series. You really are taking the FreeSpace universe to new heights.

This mod is a drug, it sucks you in and does not let go. I wish more games like this were out, but that might push the limits of the phrase 'too much of a good thing'.
