Eons ago the Drox crushed and enslaved the ancient races. Then ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat. Now they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed, hence Drox Operative 2. The following Galactic Civil War was so devastating that the Drox are now extinct. The Drox Operative guild, now fully independent, survived.

Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void … for a while. Then the ancients returned. The wars were devastating, but with the Drox Operatives on their side. The ancients were beaten back and a truce was formed.

Since the havoc, a 4th wave of sentient races is emerging in the galaxy. Unlike previous waves, in Drox Operative 2 there are thousands in this one and no one knows anything about them. In the new space race, the ancient, mature, and young races are all scouting. Now colonizing and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy through diplomacy. Including technology, war, and any other means necessary.

As a Drox Operative it’s NOT your job to manage an empire. In Drox Operative 2 you are the captain of a single starship. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy. more importantly, rake in as many credits as possible. Well, that and build the deadliest ship in the known universe. Who will you back as an Operative? The ancient, mature, or young races? The pacifist or militaristic races? The xenophile or xenophobe races? The races that value freedom or the races that use slave labor? The strong or the weak? Your actions and inactions will impact trillions of alien lives!
