Science Fiction (deep-space colonization)

Introduction

Man has made it to the stars. Now he must fight to stay there. Human soldiers fight the implacable alien Käfers. Police fight smugglers, pirates, and terrorists on rich human colonies. Explorers fight uncharted systems of the Frontier. Colonists fight hostile environments on strange worlds. And nations fight each other for political power to determine who will lead the human race in its struggle to tame the universe.

2300 AD plays against a background of Earth and its colonies 300 years after WW III, The Twilight War. In a world where nations still clash, civilization has crawled back to its prewar levels and beyond. The world is dominated by the Third French Empire, which maintains a shaky peace among its jealous rivals. Earth's 100 nations have colonies among the stars. First contact with aliens came long ago, and commerce with them is now commonplace.

Civilization has flowered to a point only dreamed of earlier, but worms are at the blossom's core. One alien race, the Käfers, is bent on eradicating humanity. Anarchists labor to bring Earth's rule crashing down. Smugglers transport alien products to other worlds, thoughtless of ecological effects. Pirates prey on merchant and colonization vessels.

Much work remains to be done if humanity is to establish itself among the stars and explore deeper into the galaxy.
