"Her Majesty expects great things of you, as does the entire British Empire."
"Never fear, Admiral; she won't be disappointed."
— Admiral Ironjaw and Captain Dashworth
It is the Empire on which the sun never sets—and not only because suns don't set in space. The cosmic territory of Great Britain is the largest and grandest government in Human history, encompassing vast swathes of the known universe and worlds ranging from Earth and the member states of the Albion Reach, to the furthest colonies and Crown dependencies. The march of aggressive imperialisation has provided a bounty of wonders for Britain.
After Britain made first contact centuries ago, all eyes turned towards the stars as borrowed alien technology was quickly retrofitted to attain interstellar flight. Since then, Queen Victoria's realm has expanded ever outwards as a cosmic peace-keeping force. The grand fleets of the Royal Space Navy protect Britain's interests among the stars, and British Army troops police the many worlds under Britain's jurisdiction.
The Space Empire has faced its share of troubles, from initial skirmishes with rival nation-states during the first forays into the Cosmic Age, to campaigns conducted in foreign quadrenes such as the Jupiter Wars and the Conquest of Vorgak 3.
