188604 follows Uso and her crew as they work to conquer a backwater world and turn it into a force on the galactic stage. Players work together, largely in JP format, to take over the local governments and find ways to monetize their work. For some it is just a paycheck, others have grand ambitions.
Ok, we did that, great! Turns out power armor works great against Muskets. Now the crew has a planet to run, people to provide to, and external threats to face down. Grand ambitions still need to be filled, and we do just as many JPs as we do SPs with characters tending to break off into their own stories.
The 309th stars many marines, all part of a once elite and experienced fighting force of Nepleslia. After the group was stripped of various commanding staff, the group formed multiple platoons and divisions. Juno and his group take on friendly and foreign worlds, restoring order or upsetting balance as they try to both cut it in the grand deeps of space as they rebuild the reputation of the 309th and uphold Nepleslia's honor.
The YSS Aeon was designed for war, and her commander was forged by war. Now both are assigned to exploration for the Star Army of Yamatai. With peace once more in the sector the Aeon embarks on a journey of discovery looking for the homeworld of a new species called the Neshaten.
The Baba Yaga is a privateer ship employed by the Gartagen Union. With the desire of the crew to make a better life for themselves, the crew seeks profit and renown in the frontiers of the Kikyo Sector. All have their own reasons. Some merely sign on to make a wage, some come seeking fame and fortune, others just want a place to belong. Captain Mikhail “Bruin” Zakharov has his own motives as well, and they lead him and the crew to the frontiers of Asteria. No matter their motives, all of them are joined in the pursuit of wealth for one reason or another.
Princess Kotori's uncanny victories bring about troubling questions about her true loyalties – questions Star Army Intelligence wants answered. To that end, a select few are chosen to watchfully attend her, while another group of former YSS Miharu crewmembers warily cover her back. Is success merely its own curse? Or might some dark agenda truly result from Kotori's ambitions?
The Crimson Corsairs continues the story of several marines from the NSS Sledge Mama as they leave the military and rejoin civilian life. As pirates. However, events far outside of their control conspire to pull them, kicking and screaming, right down the rabbit hole as events on the national scale slowly but inevitably come to a head. What starts out as a simple job will quickly spiral into a story concerning the fate of interstellar empires.
When you take some Kudhacari and throw them into a ship, they obviously want to mine things! The plot follows the adventures of Dhaval Dhawan and his many companions, employees, and hanger-ons as they try to strike it rich with jobs and find the ultimate haul! The focus of the plot is on the operation of mecha, creating technology, and mining/construction-based jobs. This is carried out through a push through uncharted space, fueled by a desire to find the Kudhacari homeworld of Eutherion.
Famous admiral Hanako and the awesome and unique crew of the YSS Eucharis race across known space exploring worlds and getting into fights with the Empire's enemies.

An exploration vessel and Specter Class Stealth Carrier, the NSS Inquiry is setting out from Gold Coast to the West of the star map after some signals were picked up by a listening post set hundred of light years from Planet Nepleslia. The NSS Inquiry is going forth to tackle the lack of intelligence on the signals picked up. Unfamiliar terrain will be overtaken and laid open for examination by the Nepleslian Star Navy, no doubt. What is in store for the Marines aboard the ship is stuff of dreams and nightmares, alike. Lust for battle will be satiated and fears will be exterminated. Enemies and foes from the depths of the universe will be put to rest or will overtake the NSS Inquiry, all depending how the players take care to protect themselves and the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia.

It is a spiritual successor to Special Planetary Section 7: Scythe.
A charter was granted to one of the Mikado's nephews; Lord Anise Whitemeadow was given land holdings on the new planet to found an outpost and begin to colonize the new holding with a mind for turning it into a rich resource for the expanding state. Colonists of all sorts piled upon the ASV Deluge, a converted civilian cruise liner, to stake their claims and make their way upon truly unclaimed land.
But Whitemeadow, who is still quite close to his minority, is a fledgling at best, and like the colony he and his foundling Knights and Retainers must grow to brave the unknown hills and valleys of their new home with wisdom and courage, proving themselves, in the Asterian way, “Noble by prowess, brave and true,” as the fate of a world and the success of the colony rests in the attempt.
