Sometime in the later years of the Roman empire, alien visitors land in Tuscany. Roman culture undergoes a rennaissance as philosophers bootstrap the empire into a spacefaring nation.

Just as we named the planets after the gods of antiquity, so did the Romans name the planets after gods from THEIR antiquity: namely, the Greek gods.

As Rome methodically spreads across the Earth, it also journeys into space, coming into contact with the insectlike/birdlike Areans (a world with several high civilizations), lizardlike Aphroditians (a world mainly of low-tech barbarians), burrowing Hermetics, and cold-loving Hephaestain Serpents.

Factions on Ares seek to use Rome, as Rome seeks to use some of them. In this game Rome is only the newest and youngest player among many: willpower is its best asset. And certain dispossessed Areans subsequently begin to prop up rivals and resistance to Imperial Rome.

Meanwhile, Rome seeks to train auxiliaries of Aphroditian heavy mounted infantry.

Orbital villas.

What's their fusion drive called? Ignis Fusionae?
