Game Description

Dark Times are Approaching

Things have not been going well for the human race. The space-faring Confederation of Terra has yet to fully recover from the losses at the Battle of Terra. Countless lives have been lost, colonies can no longer be defended, and most of the advanced warships have since been replaced with more dated technology.

Worst of all, the war against the alien Kilrathi empire is drawing to a close and the Kilrathi are winning.


Our hero, Second Lieutenant David “Sandman” Markham, is just a recruit like any other. He’s been transferred to the TCS Hermes, one of the last few carriers on the frontline, where he hopes to do his part in defending the Confederation’s people, territories and ideals.

Unfortunately, things are about to get much worse for he and everyone else aboard before they have a chance to get better.
