The game starts in near future and human race has discovered interstellar travel. Using this technology they colonized across the galaxy. When the game start a group called ARM of Orion start to become disconnect the outermost planets from the main governing body and taking them over while keeping their presence hidden from the government. ARM is able to do that because of the reason that traveling in space is slow and it takes weeks to communicate with the frontier world.
