Rome never fell.
By the end of the Twentieth Century AD, although not complete master of the world, her dominions were vast, and her military, economic and technological superiority went unquestioned. Rome’s earthly hegemony secure, the Empire began turning their vision skyward…
It is now AD 2131. Some decades earlier, Roman scientists unlocked the secrets of interstellar travel. With the invention of Quam Celerius Lucem (QCL) Drives, Roman vessels have established Colonia Proxima Centauri, a habitable world populated by primitive barbarians who were easily overcome. Rome’s first encounter with an advanced civilization (the Pomeranii) did not go well. After a brief and violent war, Rome concluded an armistice with the canine-like aliens. Rome and the Pomeranii soon became allies, joining forces against a far more serious threat: the Formix.
Following their victory in what the Senate formalized as the Formic War, Rome settled into a brief period of peace. To celebrate both his ascent to the Imperial Purple, the victory in the civil war which preceded it, and the victory over the Formix, the Emperor Marcus Orestes Claudius staged a months long series of gladiatorial games like none seen in Rome’s long history. But even as the games reached their climax, the Roman frontier was breached by a force of Formic ships which appeared at a previously unknown jump point just beyond Pluto’s orbit.
The Second Formic War was about to begin.
