The year is 2378 and Terran Alliance is for almost sixty years in state of war with alien race called Thr´engi. While the humanity is technologicaly superior (at least in terms of weapons) the Thr´engi have numbers on their side. As neither side isnt able to win decesive victory, the current state in conflict is stalemate.
Alliance navy decided to launch offensive in Deri system, two battlegroups entered node jump point and launch attack againts enemy fleet but Thr´engi fleet hid in nearby asteroid field.
Face of the enemy - Thr´engi
Humans arent much different from us, still greedy, power hungry and expansionistic. The Alliance is ruled by Alliance senate, and their military forces are called Alliance Navy. First Contact with Thr´engi was bloody, durning rebelion on Praxis the three vessels of rebel fleet managed to reach unknown jump-node and jump, Rebel leader called Shiv was responsible for many mass murders on Praxis and AN need to catch him and sended whole battlegroup after them. Alliance navy surrounded Rebel ships and ordered them to surrender, but they refuse, instead they opened fire and decided to make last stand. 3 previously unknown capital ships with escorts appeared from nowwhere - they we´re Thr´engi first generation cruisers sended to recon strange energy distortions saw three ships outclassed and under attack by much numerous fleet, after brief pause they decided to engage Alliance navy vessels and thus starting Terran-Thr´engi War. One Thr´engi cruiser was capable to escape the battle with Shiv onboard, He tell them all lies about Alliance how she nuking rebel systems and many more and when reached Thr´engi space - the High council decided to enter war with Alliance.
Durning the decades of conflict there we´re many occasions that humanity wanted to end this conflict, it is pointless and cost resources and human lives. but there we´re two major events first attempt ended in tragedy, and ended in death politicans, drones and marines. Durning last atempt after cease-fire has been signed by both sides, the Alien party has been attacked and killed by terroist group known as Humanity fist. After this event no diplomatic contact has been made and war rages on.
