War On Terra is set in the year 2348. After Humans back-engineered faster than light travel and colonised most habitable bodies in the Helius System they sent out waves of Probes containing self replicating Talus robotics in order to prepare other star systems for their arrival. We had no way of knowing that the Grays were trying to shroud their existence and were hostile to any intrusion into their sector. As the skirmishes continued, little did any side know that we were all about to be swept up in an archaic conflict between the Haraka and Watchers as it passed through the galaxy.
