The Conglomerate States

October 30, 2010

The Conglomerate States is an industrialized, consumer-based society occupying two-thirds of Nexus galaxy. It contains thousands of life-baring worlds and sentient species. On the surface the Conglomerate States presents themselves as a wealthy utopia, with glass towers reaching towards the sky and the promise of a bright future.

But the Conglomerate State are divided among 12 ruling corporations which are constantly at odds with one in other. And beneath the facade of wealth, there is growing threat of poverty, over population, mounting aggression between corporations, and exhaustion of resources.

In response the corporations have turned their gaze to the untapped resources of the surrounding Outer Territories as a solution to their problem. But as the corporation expand outward, they find themselves in a growing confrontation with the Reptilia Droc.

Nine hundred years ago, under the united ruler-ship of the Weiquin Empire, the worlds of the Conglomerate States had a glactic-wide war with the Droc. After centuries passed and Droc adopted a policy of isolationism, the history of this war has been largely forgotten and reduced to a legend among public consciousness. But the Droc are still a force to be reckoned with, and clashes over planets in the Outer Territories have lead to severe causalities on the side of the Corporations.

For the Corporations, revealing their war with the Droc would reveal just how desperate they have become. So instead the citizens of the Conglomerate State kept in the dark from the mounting problems. Media control, public empathy, political diversion keep the people unaware that their glass castle is cracking.

Below is a list of Corporations which have appeared so far. As well as the companies’ main focus, though each corporations own subsidiaries in every facet of life, which the corporate states to be largely independent of each other.

  1. Gal Zinge – mining in the Outer Territories
  2. Ponsauri – technology and research
  3. Coiypax – ship building
  4. Tydorren
  5. Destonni

The Reptilia Droc

October 16, 2010

Shrouded in mystery, little is know about the Reptilia Droc, except that they are technologically advanced and capable of vicious acts.


The first recorded encounter with the Reptilia Droc took place 800 years prior to the event of “Scavenger”. When the territory now under the Conglomerate States were ruled by the Weiquien empire. Most of the records of this time period have been lost or destroyed, but it is known that relations between the Weiquin and the Reptilia Droc deteriorated to the point of a galactic wide war. A war the Reptilia Droc won, and reshaped the galaxy.

Physical characteristics:
As their name implies, the Droc are a reptilian species. Classified as Alphas, they posses sentient intelligence, mixed with animal strength and senses, creating a potent mix.
There are several species making up Droc society, they vary greatly in size and shape. They live by a class system, their role in society decided by their species.

“Reptilia Droc: Balance of Power” is an illustrated novel by author/illustrator Chris Trefz. A thousand years after the human race was forced to abandon earth, mankind has assimilated into a galactic society called the Conglomerate States. A corporatized civilization, while more advanced, shares many of the same trials of earth’s past, greed, corruption, pollution and over population. But these problems are over-shadowed when a age old blood feud with an powerful race, called the Reptilia Droc, threatens to erupt into all out warfare.

Civilizations are about to collide in conflict that is anything but black and white.

Welcome to the first post of the Reptilia Droc blog.
Here I will be posting illustrations, concept art, excerts from the story, progress updates as I continue to develop the story. I currently about halfway through the writing, and hope to have a another quarter finished within the next few months.
