On February 7, 2252, an army of gigantic spiders and insects launched a surprise attack on the Earth. Appearing near the Solar System aboard a gigantic Centipede, these fearless warriors quickly reduced earth orbital defense systems to a state of total chaos.
Human technology was unable to fight against the speed and numbers of the invaders. Earth's defense was rapidly abandoned in order to concentrate on evacuation. While the Triumvirate still continues to resist thanks to its colonies on Mars and Tau Ceti, the rest of the refugees went in search of a new planet to call home, one far from our solar system.
