Hundreds of years after the beginning of the interstellar age… Humanity now lives among the stars. But they were not the first. Many beings came before them. Some of them became our allies. Others became enemies. Wars were fought. Since then humanity has gone through the crucible, the last government known as the I.E.R. has fallen leaving only corporations like the U.S.C. to rule the planets of man.

But your new ship is no ordinary junker vessel, it is one of the last remnants of the I.E.R. a century old government that dissapeared from existence taking its advanced technology with them.
