Welcome to the 24th Century, a time when humanity has left the cradle of Earth to spread across the Solar System and then to the stars.
First contact with extraterrestrials came centuries ago. Now, four species, the Avakhith, the Shillh, the Trogarai and the Kek, have allied themselves with humanity into a Star Union of trade, exploration, expansion and mutual defense, occupying 30 solar systems in an area of space over 100 light-years across.
Against this cosmic backdrop, countless individuals live and work, seeking knowledge, making a profit, keeping the peace, or just surviving one more day.
These tales are their stories.
