Large Description

In Distant Star: Revenant Fleet, you take control of the last remaining ships of a near-destroyed A’kari fleet and must rebuild your forces as you battle through ancient, galactic battlefields towards a final showdown with the Orthani.  The A’kari, who are also descendants of humanity’s first foray into space, have long viewed themselves as the last honourable vestige of the human race. The Sacking of Mars, the A’kari birthworld, is viewed as being one of the bloodiest events in ancient history.  What the Orthani plan next in the great Triassic War will be similarly remembered for its infamy, should you fail to stop it…
