Dark Legacies is a science fiction universe created by Chris McAuley and Babylon 5 legend Claudia Christian, set after Earth emerges from a brutal totalitarian regime and looks towards the stars with a renewed sense of hope. However, the dark legacies of the past remain and threaten to drag humanity back to darker times.

Through a series of novel, comics, games and audio dramas the creative team plan to explore the struggles of Major Jessica Steele, played by Claudia Christian. A special ops commander who has a tortured past. She must uncover the conspiracies which could destroy the heart of the new government as well as reconcile her own demons.

“Although we look towards the future with hope in our series, part of the dramatic tension comes from the legacies of the past – elements attempting to destabilise the newly elected democratic global government,” Claudia has said previously.

“We also explore the legacies which Jessica Steele must contend with as she attempts to investigate the approaching danger. Jessica has a painful past but she doesn’t wallow in it or let melancholy overwhelm her. She dedicates herself to ensuring that humanity doesn’t step backwards into totalitarianism again.”

The franchise will also encompass stories which show the timeline of the political revolution between the dictatorial Con-Fed government and the democratic United Planetary Alliance.

“Battles in Mech suits, sieges of planetary colonies, betrayal, hope and epic space battles. This is a series which should resonate with fans of Babylon 5 and contemporary sci-fi such as The Expanse“, Chris enthuses.

A writer who specialises in the Horror, Science Fiction, fantasy and crime genre, Chris McAuley has been the lead writer in novels, comics, audio dramas and games. He is the co-creator of the popular StokerVerse, along with Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker and penned the sequel to Dracula, Dracula The Return: Cult of The White Worm, which will be released by Scratch Comics later this year, after a successful crowdfunding campaign. He has also created a science fiction and fantasy franchise with Babylon 5’s Claudia Christian called Dark Legacies.

Chris has also worked on products from the Star Trek, Doctor Who and Terminator franchises.
