Project Centurion started six years ago in response to the mysterious
Asteroid Belt discovery now designated XAB-1. According to recently
declassified communiques, in 2055 a convoy of Space Corps Corvette Class
rockets detected an anomalous energy source near Asteroid Vesta. The
patrol had stumbled upon what can only be described as an alien
spacecraft engaged in clandestine observations of Earth.
could be determined if the strange vessel was friend or foe, it
disappeared in a brilliant flash of blue light leaving nothing behind.
Where did the alien ship come from and what was its mission? More
importantly, will it return, and will it bring with it an invading army?
Or will we be greeted by new alien allies from a distant world?
no choice but to prepare for the worst, Space Corps commissioned
Project Centurion to meet the defense needs of Earth and the Solar
Colonies. This crash program engaged the best scientific and engineering
minds from throughout the Solar System. Their charge: design and build
an adaptive space defense system to counter an unknown but potentially
powerful adversary. No expense or effort was spared. The result, the
Space Corps Centurion agile interceptor and space fighter, is now
operational and ready to protect Earth and the human settlements.
