Twilight Imperium 2nd Edition
From the Publisher...
It has been millenia since the galactic empire crumbled and the great races retreated, seeking safety in the remote regions of space. But now, as the great races once more delve into the heart of the galaxy, the balance of power has become increasingly fragile.

In the vast expanses of space, mighty fleets hover in tense anticipation while trade wars rage across the stars.
