The Milky Way Galaxy of the 23rd century is a brutal place.
The malevolent Drengin Empire and their allies, the Yor reign supreme. Earth and its allies have been defeated and in most cases, occupied by Drengin shock troops.

Though protected, it is surrounded by an armada of Drengin ships.
The ancient Precursors are gone forever. There will be no help from the benevolent Arnor.
