Chapter One: Threat

There were millions of Observers living on every one of the million worlds in the Empire, occupying every class, and every station.

The Observers were the first to sense the impending collapse of the continuum.

When they realized something significant was happening, they opened their lines of communication, and reacted with the powers they had.

Chapter Two: Protection

The majority of Observers made the choice to return to HomeWorld.

They went to their stations, activated the worm-holes that would take them home, but the apparatus did not function, and they were lost.

Those observers who held positions of rank and power marshalled their forces to protect the Central Planet, the Collective and Continuum.

Chapter Three: Aggression

As the imperial fleet dropped into the central system there was chaos.

In the first moment, even as the fleet was in the process of calibrating their relative positions to one another, an entire combat wing rebelled, fixed arms on the commodore, and opened fire.

It was abrupt, it was a slaughter, it was devastating.

Chapter Four: Defense

The mayhem that ensued was unprecedented.

The greatest part of the armada turned toward the attackers and joined battle, and they were beset by confusion.

None of the commanders had been experienced at taking heavy losses in combat, the forces of the Empire were just too overwhelming.

They lost vital seconds while processing the implications.

Chapter Five: Confusion

Millions died in the assault.

Tens of thousands of starships burst into flame, and were suddenly extinguished in the vacuum of space.

It was done.

What remained of the fleet had no intention of preserving the old ways of the Empire.

They were ready to bring the Gods down, to force answers from the Continuum.

Chapter Six: Reaction

The news was devastating.

The Imperial news casters could not keep a lid on it.

On every world the priesthood struggled to make sense of things, but they could not, and they could not appease the masses.

The plebs wanted revolution, they wanted freedom.

Those who could not see the change coming, met with violence.

Chapter Seven: Purpose

On a million worlds there was conflict.

The battles devastated the aristocracies on each of them; the survivors pressed their victory against any who represented the Collective.

Those observers in the vanguard knew that they had this one chance to press their advantage. If they failed, their bid to reorganize the Empire would be disaster.
