Rob Hill, Producer, “We feel we’ve taken this genre of action gaming to a

space, the races of the Terrans, Skithzar, and Grazi existed along side each
other relatively peacefully until a mysterious entity entered the galaxy. Known
as the Null, these aliens were relentless in their attacks on the existing
races. In the aftermath of war, resentment for losing various battles turned the
battle groups against each other. Now the once peaceful coalition of races finds
themselves in a constant state of turmoil and unrest.
