From the introduction:
Welcome to Zaon, a vast setting that offers you the chance to harness a variety of science-fiction play styles all within one coherent universe. The universe is held together by a powerful blending of space opera and hard science fiction. Plausible future technologies and realistic game rules have been carefully balanced with the excitement, political intrigue, and popular style elements most of us have come to enjoy in mainstream science-fiction television and film.
Zaon...provides all of the framework, detail, and intrigue for...great fiction, but leave the character story to you.
