Legends of Pegasus is set in a far-flung galaxy, in the long distant future, as a small group of human survivors strives to recreate their lost empire. The player, in control of this ragtag fleet, must explore the depths of space, encountering other space-faring races that can quickly become helpful allies – or lethal foes. It’s up to you, as the leader of this fleet, to build a new empire, via economic, diplomatic, scientific and militaristic means.
In 2231, Mankind discovered a new engine which opened the way to the stars. Humanity built huge spaceships, colonized faraway worlds and started terraforming others in order to create inhabitable planets.

All of a sudden, our strange new allies stopped sharing their knowledge and started regrouping their spaceships. When the first planets were attacked by our former friends, we were taken by surprise. All our spaceships were called back to Earth, to try reforming a strong fleet, defend our homeworld and put an end to the attack, but the enemy was too strong. In the midst of this hopeless fight, a worm hole suddenly opened and swallowed a few Human warships, which ended up stranded in an unknown and unexplored galaxy. Legends of Pegasus tells the story of this little fleet…
