As humanity and its alien friends expanded across space, a second empire began to keep a watchful eye on the fledgling star travelers and hostile, the Hagonni Empire is now looking towards the frontier of ISCO space and the resources and technology that make them look primitive by comparison. While the Hagonni have numerical superiority, they lack the dedication and drive of humanity and its allies. As lines form across the colonial boundaries, ISCO Space realizes the problems it will be facing. It begins preparations for the upcoming conflict, expanding its Marine and Space Navy.

It is an era on the brink of Interstellar War.
