CHAPTER 1 - INTRODUCTION
A decade of war against the Iquan had ravaged the galaxy. A vicious enemy capable of great cruelty and savagery. No one had emerged unscathed until their defeat thirty years ago at the Battle of Callisto where the Alliance fought for its very survival.
The Iquan were beaten back to there world of Iquos. Though the Iquan had not surrendered they had been severely weakened.
Thirty Earth years had passed since that time and the Alliance had rebuilt herself emerging stronger than before. The golden age of the Alliance was felt everywhere as new discoveries were made, new planets discovered and an era of stability brought trade and wealth to the citizens of the Alliance.
