Three thousand years in the far distant future after what was believed to be the arrival of “the savior”, mankind has carved a bloody path across the known Universe.
Considering themselves a divine race and beyond reproach as a species, they view all alien races as inferior. Those that do not bend and acknowledge the infinite superiority of the human genome are subsequently punished or simply destroyed.
This dominion over almost all sentient life forms was only attainable through the creation and exploitation of the ‘organids’ – genetically designed organic technology, easily adaptable to any enemy strategy through the introduction of seeds into the blank genetic makeup of these living machines.
The fate of Humankind rests on the path you choose; take command and lead your fleet to a glorious destiny and ensure the survival of the species!
