 We stumbled upon the Mantis by accident, the way you might accidentally stir up a nest of hornets. The insectoid race was predatory and seemingly unstoppable. Mankind was nearly destroyed during the bloody Frontier Wars that followed.

We were forced to ally ourselves, with the mysterious Celareons -- energy-based entities with advanced technology but fragile crystalline spaceships. Together we were able to turn the tide of war and drive off the Mantis horde. In the end the Mantis home world was destroyed, and the war came to an end.

Immediately, thereafter the Celareons vanished. There has been no contact since that time.


 An uneasy truce has been signed with the Mantis as they rebuild their empire, now led by a new Queen, a former rebel leader named Ker'Tak.

The Frontier Wars ended many years ago, but there has been little progress in building a lasting trust between our two races.


 Now, a new threat has arisen. A defenseless civilian outpost on the galactic rim has been completely destroyed. A hostile reptilian race known as the Vyrium launched a merciless attack on the colony and slaughtered thousands of innocents. Something must be done, and quickly.

And why have the Celareons suddenly contacted us after all this time?...


Your Fleet Awaits.

Your Fate Awaits.

Your Hour Has Come
