On an alternate reality Earth, the League of Nations launches a massive colonization vessel to establish a foothold on Mars, and beat the Red Menace to the Red Planet. Shortly after launch in 1958, massive U.S. and Soviet mining operations to extract Uranium from the Core of the Earth accidentally destroys the planet in a cataclysmic explosion, Damaging the Colony ship's guidance system and making it slingshot around Mars into the other side of the galaxy. Upon awakening 30 years later, the cryogenically preserved crew realize they've drifted far across the Milky Way itself, and discover a habitable planet. Upon landing, the scouting party finds the hull of an ancient starship crashed into a mountain, a transport to what was once a Prison colony located on the world thousands of years ago. Living inside the wreckage are the primitive Sarithians, Humanoids with animal-like features. An alliance is formed between the two, as the Humans set up their base camp around their own vessel and discover the technologies within the nearby ancient wreckage. 20 years pass and the Colony's first faster-than light vessel takes flight, traveling through the slip-stream for several hours, the crude ship eventually reaches a planet, and discovers an alien civilization. Or really, it discovers them, as a Battle Cruiser traps the vessel in a tractor beam and pulls it in to investigate. Originally concerned that the small ship was a nuclear weapon, the Entarren crew is shocked to discover the object is manned and immediately de-contaminates them of the heavy radiation their vessel is now leaking profusely.
Defend the Galactic Alliance from an ancient, extra-galactic threat as one of three Empires:
The United Systems: A colonization party that drifted astray from Earth after it was accidentally destroyed via mining operations to the planet's core gone wrong, landed on a mysterious planet and forged an alliance with the native Sarithians, Humanoids with animal-like features, and preserving its Sprawling Union of solar systems with traditional American values. U.S. Technology is an advanced blend of WWII-era Earth technology blended with powerful electronic upgrades.
The Union of Entarren Republics, a race of large humanoids genetically bred as supersoldiers in an ancient war, now managing their own System-spanning Empire with common sense, and brute force when needed. The Entarrens are respected and equally feared by most of the Alliance, but are very involved in keeping the Alliance whole and peaceful, Obliterating anything that dares to threaten it.
Entarren technology is generally robust and simplistic, streamlined and cumbersome, yet very resilient and powerful.
The Kingdom of Aeltopia, an Empire bound by bloodlines and honor under the Emperor and houses of parliament. Aeltopians are generally Elven in appearance, intelligent and noble warriors, though not absolutely trustworthy or practical. They are still an invaluable part of the Alliance, and work to uphold the unity of the three Empires. Aeltopian technology is best described as ornate and complex, yet reliable and precise.
Or fight agenst them as one of the following empires:
The Delvinye Star Empire is an extra-galactic Dictatorship built by toiling, genetically engineered slaves created from the worlds they conquer. The Delvinye race see themselves as God-like rulers and caretakers of all of creation, crushing any opposition swiftly and mercilessly, believing other races and life forms to be nothing more than "Impure" servants.
At one point thousands of years ago the Delvinye Star Empire held roughly a third of the Milky Way Galaxy, and was at war with the other two Empires holding
territory in the Milky Way as well. After near defeat by the Eldah'in Empire, they retreated to a distant Galaxy, Seemingly never to return again. Though in recent years, sightings of large unknown spacecraft are being reported from all across The Galactic Alliance.As the Delvinye prepares to re-take the Milky Way, the free forces of the Galaxy prepare for the war to end all wars...
The Phosforites a crystal like race with on one desire, to consume.
So far very little visual work has been done, just a few sketches and
concepts. Because neither myself or my friend are good with art. But
many of the ideas have been written down.
Team is needed! Right now it's just me, and I can't code, or 3D model, or anything, I'm just the guy with an idea. Any help would be appreciated.
If you are interested in helping PM myself or Skype me at sargequin
Page is currently a WIP.
Thanks for reading - Andrew.
