THE GREY armies have conquered the earth. After being vastly outnumbered and outmatched, Humans had no choice but to find refuge amongst the stars. In the 16,000 years following their defeat, they would come to learn that this threat has spread across countless worlds and has affected so many more. Thus, the Coalition of Independent Worlds was born. An armada made from the galaxy’s finest species and cultures, working together as the only line of defense between them and THE GREY’s complete dominion over the universe.
