Previously
A deadly virus affecting both organics and robotics swept the northern sectors of the Galaxy, sparking a war between the afflicted and the remaining factions. After nearly a year of defensive battles and co-ordinated operations, the war finally ended at the Battle of Ruin. The end of the war saw increased relations between the GSU, Imperium and Santori as they all agreed on a two year ceasefire to mend the damages caused by the crisis.

After these two years the factions signed the Santori Accords, an agreement proclaiming their united efforts to uphold Celestial law, including the protection of innocent life in case of another galactic threat. Following this meeting the Highrock Clans decided to join the Santori Protectorate, expanding their territory by almost double.

Galactic Date
Whilst each planet has their own personal Dates and Times, most of them adhere to the Galactic Standard Calendar when communicating with eachother.

Current Events
The Reich, a returning faction of magic-haters, resurface and initiate a purge of the planet Ordriey, destroying it entirely in the process. This event has made all of the Major Factions uneasy, even though each of them has bigger concerns of their own. Not only are there issues for these powers to deal with, but more factions are rising from the ashes of the Helix War, populating the galaxy once again.

Meanwhile, the Celestial Architect Sam'anar has discovered a way to reverse large parts of the Convergence, sending back many of the planets it had brought into the galaxy. Whilst this move has saved many from unwanted threats, it has also shifted the layout of the galaxy drastically. Because of this, new star-charts have been drawn out with Hyperlanes, allowing them to show the quickest and safest routes between planets.

"This is Lord Admiral Yusuf Al Thani of the Galactic Systems Union to the Serpentum Imperium, does anyone read me? I repeat, this is the Lord Admiral of the GSU sending out a distress call to the Imperium, please respond." Yusuf spoke into the comms.

The Admiral was standing inside one of the most secure locations on Earth - the GSU Council building where all the big discussions took place, after which decisions affecting the entire faction would be made.

Right now however, it served its secondary purpose as a bunker, remaining mostly clean in contrast to the post-chaotic scene outside, though with a few blood splatters and corpses around the outer rim of the building.

Having virtually lost all of almost all of their communication tech, Yusuf had to resort to technology manufactured the supernatural half of the GSU, overseen by Jaya Almis herself. Luckily, superluminal communication was not a problem for this combination of magic and tech, a fact that Yusuf was thankful for.

He stood there and waited, many GSU officials and politicians, as well as Elite Commando guards and two Omega Legionnaires stood in the same room around him. They too waited for a response, as for now... the Imperium was their only hope.

Shortly after Admiral Taru was left for the operation into Syndicate space came another into the bunker beneath the governor's palace on Xu'la. It was one of the officers clad in his bluish-black uniform that dimly shone as it reflected what little light the bunker entrance had.His face carried a look of duty alongside droplets of sweat from the run to the bunker.

Without any more then a salute the officer handed the reptilian Star-Admiral a communicator chit,one small stick that would connect the bunker system to the navy's communications array. The officer then spoke,his voice rapid as he struggled to catch breath.

"My lord....You need to see this."

The Star-Admiral turned his gaze to the small chit in his hands,wondering of the contents that awaited him as he turned around walking with a brisk pace back to the war room stopping next to a console near the door. He then placed the chit in a port and after a brief few seconds the room brimmed back to life.

The hologram displayed an familiar figure the Star-Admiral had not seen since the battle of Ruin. His face carried distress similar to the officer from before which made the Star-Admiral in the wake of the attacks made on their own even more anxious and paranoid. "Them too" He thought as he turned to face the projection of the GSU Admiral.

"Lord Admiral....This is Star Admiral Kar'Shen Krell of the Imperium....I understand that this encrypted signal is a distress call."

The response came, much to the relief of Yusuf. Finally something around here worked.

"Admiral Krell, thank you for responding. I am afraid this is indeed a distress call on behalf of the entire GSU." Yusuf said. "Only just a few hours ago, planet Earth was subjected to a sudden and may I say, calamitous attack. Simultaneously, most of our technology shut down. Contact with the other colonies has been completely lost." He explained.

"Demonic creatures of some kind arrived in their millions. We... need help." He sighed. "The only reason I am able to talk to you right now is because of the precautionary measure of keeping Knights communication technology readily available at all times alongside our normal tech, courtesy of Jaya Almis. From what little we could tell, this attack may have affected the other planets as well. That is not why I am calling you however."

Yusuf turned his head to the side in order to type at a holo panel next to the main screen. "I received an emergency hail from our research planet Chiron. According to the scientists there, the energy signature given off from the portals that allowed these demons to arrive on our soil in the first place, has one match. And that is the strange energy readings that we received from the planet Acheron when we first discovered it."

"Subsequent attempts to contact Acheron have been unsuccessful. We believe that something there may be responsible for what happened. Unfortunately none of our ships are operational enough to get us there. Which is why... I'm asking you for help." The Admiral paused, allowing for the Star Admiral to respond.

The Star-Admiral placed his right hand on the scales of his chin while his left was tucked behind the leathery wings on his back,deep in thought he shook his head. "This does not bode well.....You have called at an....inopportune time.....My hands are tied Lord Admiral until the Court convenes......I have few forces not assigned to fixed tasks.....But...." He leans back as he calls aside one of his guards,speaking in an alien tongue after which the guard nods and leaves out of sight. "I can spare one.......But...I would require a full diagnostic and map of projected demon movements.....and considering this 'Acheron' was the source of these strange readings I do believe it would be best to strike at the nest as fast as possible,however I cannot spare forces to a full on war until the Court reaches a conclusion to the matter of the new regency."

He raised his head and stood on attention. "What do you propose?"

"I understand and apologise for requesting your help at such a time, Admiral." Yusuf said. "My proposition is that whatever ship you can offer, take both a spec ops team of combined Imperium and GSU troops to the surface of the planet. Once there, they could ascertain and if given the opportunity, eliminate the cause of this invasion."

Yusuf typed at the control panel again, sending the Star Admiral an analysis of the demonic invasion on Earth. The analysis showed that a sudden energy signature seemed to come from a specific building in each densely populated city. This energy was emitted as a result of a portal opening at the very top of each building, through which the millions of demons arrived. The portals, numbering in their hundreds, also opened simultaneously worldwide.

The analysis also drew comparisons between the energy signature given off by the portals, and the recorded energy readings from the planet Acheron upon its time of discovery.

"One thing we realised when analysing these reports is the buildings that generated these portals. I say generated because it was discovered that levelling these buildings seemed to be the only way of shutting them down. They belong to a company called Meteor Enterprises, a private government contractor and the GSU's personal liaison for experimental weapons and civilian tech research. We fear that... they aren't what they seemed after all. It is in fact Meteor Enterprises who established research bases on Acheron, meaning they definitely had something to do with this."
