In the MMO RTS Beyond Protocol, the Senate will drive the outcome of the game. The player is provided voting rights based on the number of planets they control. Often times, the vote will come down to one key star system.
From the planet below, the sky was filled with ships in orbit. All for one precious planet and control of the vote in the galactic senate.
In an attempt to take the planet, ground invasion forces are aided from units in orbit above. Land and space combat, simultaneous fighting, in real time.
