Master the unknown
before it masters you
Imagine a world where population growth is outstripping planetary resources, where the need for galactic expansion is critical, and where as the ruler, you must defend your empire while guiding a team of pioneers on a search for life-sustaining resources. Many other races are experiencing the same internal pressure to expand, but the galaxy is only so large. You will need to lead your people into other star systems quickly, securing the space and resources that will guarantee your supremacy. But that's not all: banished from Orion, the Antaran race lurks in the darkness. You prayed they would never return but now, in the deepest reaches of outer space, they plan their revenge.
