Six hundred year ago mankind parted ways. After fighting over politics and religion for eons, the human race had finally rendered the Earth uninhabitable. The last remnants of the four remaining factions of humanity, still divided over philosophy and doctrine, built fleets of great space arks and set off into space in opposite directions. Each faction hoped never to encounter the other factions again. For six centuries the four factions lived apart and alone; each secure in their political and religious beliefs. But even the vastness of space could not separate mankind from his warlike nature. After six hundred years man was again at war with himself. Once again armies were being sent to force an ideology on people that would rather die than accept it.
