I remember the day it all ended, the day the empire died. It all happened so fast, it started with a surprise attack on Parliament. However, unlike last time, we weren't able to beat it back. Parliament was destroyed, the queen, is dead. That was the the day the empire collapsed, it was a huge step-back, but we could maybe recover. The true point where we couldn't come back came later. It was our most foolish mistake, the admiralty gathered up a large portion of the navy for a counter attack. The Cthulans were expecting it, the whole thing was a trap. In the subsequent battle we lost over two-thirds of the fleet, would've lost more if what remained of the admiralty hadn't ordered the retreat. In the confusion the fleet scattered across the galaxy, several groups have formed, many are just trying to keep order as best they can. However not only do we have to deal with the Cthulans, the pirate clans have been emboldened and Mutiny has become much more common.
This RP, as you can probably surmise by the title, is set in the world of Treasure Planet. However all is not right, an old enemy has resurfaced and in a quick succession decimated the Terran Empire and taken control of the galaxy. Fractured by an attack that led to the destruction of Parliament and the death of most government officials. The Royal Navy was almost completely destroyed in a large battle that left it at around a third of it's original strength. Those left either retreated when they released the battle was lost, or were in the frontier regions. This RP will revolve around the Navy and their attempts to keep a fragile order intact and maybe regain control of the galaxy.
