A megagame of interstellar war, politics and crisis management ( … and killer robots) by Jim Wallman.
Humanity has colonised around 1000 star systems and yet has never encountered intelligent aliens. True there is evidence of an ancient starfaring species (the Forerunners) but humanity missed whatever happened to them by many millennia.
In the centuries of interstellar expansion out from Sol, humanity has split into a number of polities each with its own character. Rivalry between these polities has been a spur to colonial expansion, but also a cause of local conflicts. Big wars between the Homeworlds have long been regarded as impossible – there is too much at stake! But out in the colonial Quadrants tensions can run hot…and they maybe about to get a lot hotter!
