It is the 31st millenium, and the Empress of Ponykind has reunited the lost children of ponykind under the flag of the Harmonian Hegemony. From the Alicorn Throne she rules an empire of a million worlds. Pony, synthetic and xenos alike live under her protection, the Hegomonies vast Imperial Navy, ever vigil for hostille powes, its worlds all reaping the benifits of the Hegemoies vast wealth. What the Empresses true name is none now know. Even to the empress, her true name is long forgotten. Some say she was once a ruller of Old Equis before the terror of Old Night descended upon the galaxy. Others say she is the reincarnation of a forgotton goddess, long popular among the tibes of the Canterton Plateu. All anyone trully know is that she rose from the ashes of the Crysstalla ruins to unite the techno-barbarian tribes for the first time in 2500 years.

Makes me think a lot about the manga "Blame!". It has the same kind of gigantically labyrinthic sceneries... All the time.

Well that escalated quickly. Or maybe it didn't? Is Twilicorn immortal?

This is one of those images that generate a mini fanfic in my head, a bit like the last comment. If I put wrote all those mini stories I imagined I would have pages of fanfics on mlpfics. To bad I'm not to good at putting my ideas on paper.

64000 years had passed since ponies and other races have left the confines of their forgotten homeworld of Harmony to explore the stars. Now, after arising from the anarchy and carnage of the Second Dark Age, the Harmonian Hegemony had reached is zenith. Countless quadrillions of souls, both Harmonian, Alien or Synthetic, lived under Pax Hegemonia, secure in the protection of its vast war-fleets, prospering with their share its opulent wealth.

At its center, stood APEX - throne world of the Harmonian Hegemony, the beating heart of an empire that span the entirety of the Concordian Galaxy. From the Core to the Arms, over 30 million star systems pledge their allegiance to to the Perihelion Tower, the center of Apex's planet-spanning palace. And upon the top of the towering spire of Synth-Glass and Neo-Adamantine, the Hegemon Empress watches over the galaxy from the Alicorn Throne.

Yet, as one unicorn shall discover, Apex and the Hegemony is not without its weaknesses, and not without powerful enemies.

For, Nova Starlight, proud prodigy descending from the ancient House Twilight, the opulence and power of Apex is almost too overwhelming for a noble hailing from the rural province of Equus-stra. But what was supposed to be a casual visit to the capital is thrown upside down by an attempt on her life. Soon, she found herself in a race against time to uncover a conspiracy thousands of years in the making, one that would threatens to put an end to Hegemony, and with it, the peace and harmony that had reigned for millennia.

To save an empire, she must confront countless foes and uncover forgotten secrets from the lost histories of the galaxy, a journey that will find herself on a journey across Apex, and the galaxy beyond.

For that task, she will need every help she could get. And above all else, she will need some friends...

Reading this i would say Twilight finally claimed her rightfull title( and using a little 40kesk ideas). Plenty of stories where Twilight rises to ultimate power( both good and bad), but most stop at Queen, instead of Empress. Or im reading this wrong and never mind.

The 40k comparisons i can see: the Empress ruling most of the galaxy from the Alicorn Throne( great name), is echoing the Emperor( in his death-like state) ruling the Imperium from the Golden Throne of Terra. Big difference here is that the Hegemony allows xenos to live under the same banner.

...Oh yes.
That right there is the makings of a top-notch story.

At first, it sounds like a Sci-Fi retelling of the canon story...but there seems to be so much more just under the surface...

1# very cool and nice, the lighting is so good.
2# i like twilight's hair, but what's going on with it?.. it's all shadowy and liquidy (if that's even a real word )
3# the geometry in this, i like.
4# reminds me of Halo for some odd reason
