Galactic Tempest tells the story of the epic struggle between two futuristic imperial societies from a geopolitical perspective. It is told from the perspective of the generals who are fighting the conflict with the tactics and strategies used being the primary driver of the tide of battle (instead of technological wizardry). The dawn of a new era emerges as civilizations discover a new method of intergalactic travel: space/time distortion manipulation travel (or space/time travel). Space/time travel allows spaceships to bypass the distance of space and the passage of time by distorting the space/time fabric around a ship using powerful gravity generators. With this new technology comes the rapid exploration of space, and the expansion of imperial empires. Now, as two Galactic superpowers meet in a previously uncontested system, they rapidly clash as the system becomes the stage for a contest of galactic supremacy. It will be a struggle that will decide the fate of entire civilizations for centuries to come.
