Nearly one-thousand years after humanity has left Earth and taken to the stars, a rift has opened in the center of the galaxy.The rift has been teleporting new planets, known as Nomen, into the solar systems. A period of tense peace begins between formerly warring factions, as a galactic landgrab begins to claim and colonize these Nomen. But the mysterious Nomen carry a dark secret within them, a secret that could lead to the end of humanity. This secret is stumbled upon by four unlikely heroes, each from a faction that hates the other. Can these four overcome their differences and unite a war-torn humanity against this new threat?
