Deadly as it is beautiful.
The United Trade Consortium has long held a near monopoly on intra-galactic trade routes through its networks of warp gates and jump drive technology. Its latest advancement in warp tech, the Hyperluminal Drive, has given small ships the ability to jump without the need for a warp gate. This secret technology has huge implications for the future of space travel and galactic expansion.
In its long race to conquer the distant, mysterious and resource-rich Tartarus Sector, the UTC has stretched its resources thin. The UTC has spent centuries cementing its foothold on the sector, but now the insurgent Tartarus Liberation Front has emerged, demanding autonomy for the Tartarus. Having infiltrated the UTC’s warp gate network, the TFL has been using hit-and-run tactics to disrupt UTC supply lines and mining operations. These brazen raids have become increasingly frequent and now the TFL has its eyes set on acquiring the secrets of the Hyperluminal Drive. The UTC’s top brass can’t ignore the attacks any longer - it’s time to bring order back to the Tartarus Sector.
That’s where you come in, pilot. The UTC relies on a cadre of elite contract pilots to protect its interests across the galaxy and as a new recruit you’ve been sent to the Tartarus to crush the TFL using the most advanced starfighter the UTC has ever produced: the Minos. With an integrated Hyperluminal Drive and a wide array of possible weapon load outs, the Minos Starfighter is as deadly as it is beautiful. Just like the Tartarus Sector.
