The game takes place in a 27th century where humanity has expanded throughout the stars for the last 500 years. Many worlds have been colonized and are ruled by the Terra Central Government (TCG), seated on Earth. However, as a result of the Terra Central Government's continued authority over the colonized planets, political unrest regarding Terra's arbitrary rule began to spread. In time, this discontent led to armed conflict in various locations... ...but Terra's vast military power always suppressed the sporadic resistance in the name of maintaining public order.
