The Coalition of Planets is not an actual Coalition. Long ago, it may have been, but that is a time now lost. Now, the Emperor of Tarsis rules with a velvet-covered steel fist, sitting deep within the Imperial Sanctum. His fleets and armies bring his will to far-off worlds, his people work diligently to keep life in order. All things are with purpose, for every soul under the banner of Tarsis. But, that balance is upset now. A cousin race, the Men of Sol, have risen to challenge the Men of Tekhan. There is only one outcome for these barbarians: Subjugation. But there are many paths... Let the great struggle of our time begin.
