A Galactic Tour
The Galaxy Today
The year is 2501. It’s the dawn of the 26th century, and while hopes of a bright future linger, so do the shadows of ancient wars. Hatred dies hard, old enemies have long memories, and new dangers haunt the edge of space. Every nation seeks an advantage, and most include war as a means to their goals. To further complicate affairs, some nations are already expressing disdain for the Galactic Concord and the current order.
War looms on the horizon despite the Concord’s determined efforts to lay the foundations of peace. This war might come from within, as stellar nations struggle for power and aliens seek influence. Or it might come from outside, where a mysterious threat lurks, waiting for a chance to strike. What will this century hold for humanity and its allies? Individuals and their actions will set the course. Throughout human space, explorers and traders reestablish ties and regain knowledge lost in the war. The routes to the frontier are reopening as the Verge returns to the galactic community. In the unsettled systems, new opportunities arise constantly for a hero to step forward and make a name for himself.
