The Triplanetary Confederation is in a time of expansion. With recent successes both in and out of the Sol System, the admiralty has decided to push outward once again, exploring space in a way that has not been done since before the Interplanetary War.
You are a part of this massive effort, which is sending huge starships through hendecaspace to the nearby stars, with the stated goal of not only exploration, but to seek out lost human colonies which are far-flung, like the one found by Alamo on Ragnarok.
The Triplanetary Confederation seems to be behind its rivals at this time – the UN of Earth has already established several colonies in its “Trust Territory” and the Lunar Republic seems to be one step ahead of both other major factions in the Sol System, having contacted several colonies already, offering them alliances.
Even worse, the Triplanetary Fleet is still relatively new and unsteady. Many of the members of the planetary militias which came together believe that they would be better off alone, or seek to gain an upper hand for their world within the organisation. Add to that the fact that the Lunar Republic has spies everywhere... and the UN may well have the most expert spies of all – very few have been discovered.
With even Captains facing assassination attempts on their own ships, choosing to explore space at this time might seem like a foolish move.
The call of space seems worth the risk, however...
It’s clear that if the Triplanetary Confederation is to survive and not be consumed by its rivals, it will have to expand and find new allies.
What will you find out there?
