Part 2 picks up from the end of Pacification and takes as the rest of our established history, things once get stretched out a little bit to cover a larger portion of time. Everything after “Legacy” is pretty much new although it does cover some stuff from our last mission “Voyage of Discovery.” The first of our hotspots will appear in this part and some new characters will be introduced while others have been written out.
