In MoO3 you begin the next era in the Master of Orion
story by leading your people back to the stars after a millennium of
domination, enslavement, and suffering under the heel of the power you
thought defeated at the end of the last game; the Antarans. That's
right, the Antarans. A few decades after your invasion of their strikepoint world, the Antarans sent a conquest fleet to reduce the
upstart Orion Sector to rubble. Politically split, weakened by
turmoil during the years following the destruction of what they thought
was the Antaran homeworld, the Orion Sector races were no match for the
massive, technically advanced Antaran Black Fleet.
What followed was a dark age of suffering;
the people of the sector were removed from their homeworlds, relocated
without care into work camps and experimentation camps where they
contributed top the growth of Antaran Science.
And now, after the deaths of untold
billions, the bulk of Antaran forces have mysteriously disappeared, and the attitude
of their governing center at Orion has changed. The Orion Senate
has been re-established and those enclaves of the Orion races that are
capable of reaching out into space are once again free to do so.
No-longer are races united - human enclave meets human enclave, each
descended from the survivors of research or work camps, klackon enclave
meets klackon enclave, and the meetings are not always friendly.
Many have changed, many have their own agendas - and over it all, the
shadow of Antaran power looms.

archives for the excellent fan fiction that has been written since the
game's release. Listed below are some of the sites that host fan
fiction; most will take new submissions as well if you want to write
Fans have created some fantastic FAQs and strategy guides, and Orion Sector makes those strategies, tactics, and tips available here.
