The solar system had been in the initial stages of colonization by the NEG, with outposts as far as Jupiter, when the Migou invasion fleet wiped them all out. Contact was lost during the start of the Second Arcanotech War and it is presumed that there are no survivors. With the arrival of the Migou's moon-sized Hive Ship, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) was also surrended to the bug-aliens and outer space is now relatively human-free. Only a few stealthed satellites and small spaceships can hope to survive the Migou surveillance nets, though the NEG is constructing the first of a series of large space cruisers that they hope will break the blockade of Earth.
