As seven alien races struggle to co-exist in an uneasy alliance, the Inter-Stellar Union sends Union Guard agents on missions to preserve the crucial balance. These specialized operatives must do what regional security cannot, dealing with smugglers, pirates, terrorists, and even greater challenges in order to bring stability to a universe that needs it desperately. Without the Union Guard, the races will not be prepared to face a looming alien threat they can only hope to defeat together.

Was the Jetsons Cartoon Prophetic? (part 4)
Space travel was part of life in The Jetsons, and the family
sometimes visited the moon. Today, the option for commercial
spaceflight is nearing reality, with companies like Virgin Galactic
and Space X offering flights to the space station as early as 2017.
The cost? A mere $250,000. Many have already reserved their seats!
But the space station isn't the only possible destination, as talks
for colonizing Mars become more and more serious each year.
Projections are made that manned missions to Mars may occur before
2035, and plans are being developed for actual habitation. However,
Elon Musk himself, the wealthy visionary behind Space X and the plans for
the colonization of Mars, has said he doesn't want to be the first
person on Mars because he doesn't want to die.
