Plot[edit | edit source]
ILLUMINAE: The ILLUMINAE Files_01[edit | edit source]
BeiTech first attacks Kerenza IV in 2575 using four dreadnaughts: the Churchill, Kenyatta, Lincoln and Zhongzheng. This is because BeiTech discovered that Kerenza IV hosts an illegal hermium mining colony owned by competing company WUC, and instead of pursuing legal action, BeiTech decides to attack and occupy it instead. All the BeiTech dreadnaghts but Lincoln are destroyed or severely damaged in the battle. The Lincoln gives chase to refugee ships Hypatia, Alexander, and Copernicus in attempt to destroy all witnesses to their attack on the illegal mine colony.
GEMINA: The ILLUMINAE Files_02[edit | edit source]
After discovering that BeiTech's valuable ships have been destroyed by the Kerenza survivors and that the ship Hypatia, full of writnesses of the attack on Kerenza, has gotten away, Leanne Frobisher writes to an undercover BeiTech operative on jump station Heimdall (the Hypatia's next destination) named Jackson Merrick. Together they coordinate the arrival of an assault team to take over the station and eliminate all the survivors before they escape through the station's wormhole. But the BeiTech team's efforts are hampered by oraganized resistance from Hanna Donnelly, Nik Malikov, Ella Malikova, Isaac Grant and the survivors on the Hypatia.
OBSIDIO: The ILLUMINAE FILES_03[edit | edit source]
The approaching former BeiTech ship Mao, bearing Kady Grant, Ezra Mason, Hanna Donnelly, Nik Malikov and others, receives a distress signal from Kerenza IV, where BeiTech has occupied the mining colony and is forcing civilians to mine enough hermium to create a mini wormhole and get the dreadnaughts out of the Kerenza System. However, they face a rebellion brewing, members of which include Asha Grant (Kady Grant's cousin), Bruno Way, and others. BeiTech ground pounder Rhys Lindstrom defects to the side of the resistance after being persuaded by his ex-girlfriend Asha, and with his help and the help of the survivors aboard the Mao, they launch an attack on the BeiTech forces.
