can find details on the

Eons ago the Drox crushed and enslaved the ancient races and ruled
the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were
trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost. Whether employing stealth
or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox ruled
the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their
Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They
failed. The following Galactic Civil War was so devastating that the Drox are
now extinct. The Drox Operative guild, now fully independent, survived.
Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void ... for a while. Then the
ancients returned. The wars were devastating, but with the Drox Operatives on
their side, the ancients were beaten back and a truce was established.
Since the devastation, a 4th wave of sentient races are emerging in the galaxy.
Unlike previous waves, there are thousands in this one and no one knows anything
about them. In the new space race, the ancient, mature, and young races are all
scouting, colonizing, and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy through
diplomacy, technology, war, and any other means necessary.
As a Drox Operative it's NOT your job to manage an empire, you are after all the
captain of a single starship. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe
even help them conquer the galaxy if you're being nice, more importantly though
is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the deadliest
ship in the known universe. Who will you back as an Operative? The ancient,
mature, or young races? The pacifist or militaristic races? The xenophile or
xenophobe races? The races that value freedom or the races that use slave labor?
The strong or the weak? Your actions and inactions will impact trillions of
Drox Operative 2 is scheduled to be released in the 1st quarter of 2021, however
it will be released when it's done. We are planning an Early Access release in
the near future though if you want to get in early!
