At the start of the expedition, you will only have your experienced but small expedition fleet, and you will need to quickly establish a functioning economy to sustain the expedition. Ultimately, you will have to rely on resources from home for only a short time.
Diplomacy in a Fractured Galaxy:
The Pegasus galaxy is full of independent factions with their grievances, rivalries, and fragile alliances, so navigating this diplomatic landscape will be crucial for success. This entails making dynamic deals and agreements within the diplomacy system and making difficult choices in dialogue.

Manage Fleet and Officers:
To survive in this new and often hostile galaxy, it is crucial to keep your forces in good shape and your leaders trained. You will have to work with limited human resources, and choosing the right person for the right job can often make all the difference. Appoint admirals, governors, and special forces fighters who will help you achieve victory.
War never changes, and there is plenty of it in the Pegasus galaxy. Choose strategies and plan your battles carefully, as meticulous planning is everything in the unique combat actions of the Pegasus Expedition. Espionage and strategic movement of your forces will be crucial in the war to ensure your fleets are in the right place at the right time.
An even brighter future awaits us. Great discoveries and countless great and lesser things await you to be accomplished using these discoveries. To have a chance against your enemies, you need to stay one step ahead of them in technology, not just in strategy.
Fighting Against Deteriorating Odds:

The longer the expedition continues, the higher the stakes, with new threats, enemies, traitors, and heroic resistance movements appearing. All to make the campaign dynamic, interesting, and challenging until the very end. With a multitude of characters, side quests, and twists in the campaign, the dynamic Pegasus galaxy will present you with new tasks that won’t let you relax.
