By Mark de Bakker The occupation of Earth by the Korzof-Moti begins in 2050, and is Earth's first introduction to the wider universe. Headquartered in Colombia, the occupation is led by the Machiavellian warlord Dəroza, aided by his fellow Bactarans and thousands of human collaborators.
Return to Mars
By Martina Stipan In this scene, set in 2067, we can see Martian colonists eagerly awaiting their first resupply mission in 17 years. The colony wasn't yet set up to be self-sustaining, so when supplies from Earth were cut off in 2050 by the Bactaran occupation, the colonists were forced to improvise. They repurposed the ship which was landed at the colony at the time - it wouldn't serve much purpose as a spaceship with nowhere to go - and used its pressurized volume as a greenhouse.
New Brooklyn Spaceport
By Erin McAuley Brooklyn, along with a number of other cities, was destroyed in a mass driver attack by the Bactarans during the occupation. Rising from the ashes is a well-trafficked spaceport for launching people to Earth orbit.
Saturn Warp Bridge
By Martina Stipan A crewman taking in the view around Saturn in the 2080's. Besides Saturn itself, you can see its moons Enceladus and Hyperion, and Hyperion Station with a handful of ships coming and going. On the right, you can see the warp bridge to the Sirius system. The warp bridges are a network of paired singularities that provide instantaneous travel to other star systems - the only way to travel beyond the speed of light. No one knows who built the warp bridges.
By Mark de Bakker An up close and personal look at a battle onboard a Bactaran asteroid mine. The EGF forces are investigating a missing persons report in the Solar System's asteroid belt when the situation gets out of hand. This kind of encounter in the belt is not unusual in the latter part of the 21st century, and is one of the major catalysts for the Orion War between humans and Bactarans at the turn of the 22nd century.
Treaty of Parella
By Mark de Bakker After the conflict left the human and Bactaran fleets decimated, both sides are out for blood. The Vorans, seeing that war was about to come to their doorstep, would have none of this. They used their advanced ships to force both sides to the negotiating table, securing the Treaty of Parella in 2109.
Parella Station Market
By Federico Guillen A crowded marketplace on Parella Station featuring all four humanoid races of the Orion Arm - Humans, Bactarans, Vorans, and Guigu.
By Federico Guillen An image of several greenhouses under construction on Farmoon in the Parella system, circa 2117. In the sky you can see the gas giant Bridgehub and its other major moon Softmoon. In the foreground you can see some pioneering human and Guigu settlers.
By Erin McAuley This city on Bactara is one of the biggest trade hubs on the moon which is the homeworld of the Bactarans. In the background is Martok, the gas giant which Bactara orbits.
By Erin McAuley The Guigu live most of their year in underground caves called Nimu, protecting them from the sub-zero temperatures on the surface. This scene shows the first thaw of spring, an annual festival known as Showesitui (which literally translates to "Love & Food").
