The Realspace saga is an epic battle between the terrans with
thier United Fleet and the Katuri Empire. In the Earth year 2357 the terrans invaded
the outer worlds of the Katuri Empire. It was their never ending thirst for expansion
and belief that it's their manifest destiny to rule the galaxy that drove this.
They fully underestimated the strength and resolve of the Katuri. The Katuri
Empire struck back by smashing through the terran frontier. Having destroyed all
outlying outposts, somehow Apocalypse Outpost
managed to stave off the Katuri onslaught.
On a second front, the Katuri had the United Fleet's 5th fleet and thier mighty
dreadnoughts pinned down. In Antaris Realspace,
the terrans managed to run a re-supply mission to the 5th fleet. With the fleet
re-supplied and with the help of the Antaris, the United Fleet turned a desparate
situation to victory.
The Katuri advance fell apart. With the Katuri forces smashed and scattered,
the Terrans resumed their invasion of the Katuri worlds. With blood spilled the

They invaded the heart of the Katuri Empire and devastated all worlds that would
Fleet Command saw thier chance to end the war and ordered the invasion of Sirius
Prime, the Katuri homeworld. The United Fleet smashed through thier homeworld

weapons of mass destruction against the Katuri homeworld to ensure their conquest
under the guise of it saving lives on both sides by preventing a prolonged invasion.
In a miracle maneuver, a wing of Katuri suicide bombers managed to drive off the
The very heart of the empire was in shambles and thier homeworld was smashed.
In Realspace 2 - Emperor's Revenge the Katuri
call upon the commander of the KFS Vengeance to re-group the Katuri forces, drive
the terrans from thier space, and take the ulitimate revenge by destroying the
terran homeworld, the Earth!
The Apocalypse had come and the terrans had only themselves to blame as thier
mighty war machine the United Fleet had failed. A place had to be found to make
the terran's last stand. This was the only place the Katuri could never conquer.
In Realspace 3 - Apocalypse Returns (next in the Realspace Saga) they return
to Apocalypse Outpost.
