I'm extremely excited for the new trilogy. This poster was slightly inspired by the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Poster.
ALSO - I'd like to note why Darth Vader is even on this poster since he died in the last movie. I believe they will show Vader one way or another (Spirit, Ghost, Reincarnated, Flash back) one way or another in the new trilogy and him being the most recognizable icon of Star Wars it made sense to add him.

PLOTLINE: On the planet of Lumen there is a human population that rivals that of Earth, though neither knows the other exists. The Lumen people have spread throughout 4 of the 7 planets in their solar system colonizing them and terraforming them to be more habitable. Sterilis, the closest to their sun is a desert plant that is dotted with bio-domes housing cities, factories, and gardens. Lumen is the 2nd planet, it is a terran planet that has been preserved due to highly clean and efficient power supplied by the Essentia enim lucis, commonly known as Lux. It is a beautiful planet dotted with floating cities, large forest, beautiful mountains, and clear water. It is orbited by massive space stations that house all of the planets industry. The 3rd planet is Nimbosus, a small gas giant that has been terraformed to have a breathable atmosphere above the thick, storm-riddled clouds. It houses the largest shipyards in the system producing atmospheric defense vessels, atmospheric transports, and inter-planetary transports. The 4th planet is Hibernus. It is an ice planet but its atmosphere is so stormy it was initially believed to be a gas-planet. The planet’s atmosphere was completely breathable but proved to be impossible to terraform so instead massive underground cities built around mining and refining raw resources.
There was mostly peace with the exceptions of pirates who would use small shuttles to hijack inter-planetary transports for ransom but they were rare. Every planet had a standing military in case of inter-planetary hostilities, but training levels were low as was the quality of equipment. Each planet had its own government with all but Hibernus being democracies. Hibernus had adopted socialism. Travel between planets was limited to business and transportation of goods.
The outer planets were all gas giants. They had breathable atmosphere and there were research outposts on them but they was already enough colonies so they were left uncolonized. They had the largest garrison of any of the planets but it was mostly atmospheric craft. Space combat is limited to primitive Ignis powered missiles. They are weak, low velocity, and low-range but are adequate for fighting pirates.
2 years ago scientists on the furthest planet named L7(L-1-L-4 are named L-5-L-7 are unnamed) observed various stars in a sequence getting blocked by a dark object. It was filed in a report then dismissed as nothing.
1 year ago a small star cluster disappeared from view, blocked by some unknown object. they filed a report and then ignored it, that is until 2 months later when their sensor began detecting what appeared to be a moving nebula of darkness closing in on L-6.
1 month later the ‘nebula’ reached the outer edge of the range of a scout equipped with a Lux drive. (the lux drives were a new invention that were not entirely stable and would occasionally overload, vaporizing everything in a large radius) 2 were dispatched to investigate. It took them 6 hours to reach the edge of the cloud. When they arrived they launched Ignis powered drones to take a closer look, maintaining a 2km distance. Suddenly there was a shift in the ‘cloud’. It shot out a small arm of darkness.It covered the 2 scouts and all contact was lost. It was followed almost immediately by 2 massive blasts of Lux, however it was mixed with a darker form of Vis(essence) never before seen. Thus began the Lumen-Pravum War.
That was 1 year ago. Since then L-6 and then L-7 have fallen to the Pravum(the name given to the ‘dark nebula’. Today the Nimbosus shipyards in cooperation with the Lumen research centers are going to launch the 1st several[will change to number of people who join] of a new line of ships, the Lustartio-class warships.
The Lustario-class are are armed with 7 18.1” heavy Lux cannons mounted on each side and a dual 14” heavy Lux cannon mounted on the bow. Along either side of the engines is a bank of new Lux tipped and powered missile launch tubes that each holds 36 long-range guided rockets. Mounted behind a hidden panel on the bow is a fixed forward firing 31” Wide-Area Lux Bombardment Cannon(WAX-BAC). Along each side there is 12 8.8cm flak and 30 quad 20mm AAA guns, and 18 8.8’s and 40 quad 20 mm's along the top and bottom(all physical weapons). The armor is from 4’ to 8’ thick. They have a top speed of 2600 nm/h (or knots.) and a maximum turn rate of 25 degrees/s. Both carry approximately 30 small 1 or 2 manned fighters capable of being armed with .50 cal physical machine guns, 2 .30 cal Lux machineguns 50 lb, 100 lb, and 250 lb torpedoes and 90mm rockets(all lux tipped explosives[lux explosives harm both Vis and physical pravum forms]). They have a crew of about 3500 men.
[extra plot] When the Pravum attacked L-6 they moved in and surrounded the planet, with all light cut off Lux Vis lost half it's power, weakening the defense force stationed there. Over the course of the next week the Pravum's Vis began leeching into the planet and people stationed there who didn't make it into a Lux-powered shelter in time. They began mutating the people and the planet began losing mass on its core. Caligo(Vis of corruption) forms began manifesting themselves and joined ranks with the mutated humans. They attacked shelters 1 at a time. The military tried their best to hold them off but they were armed with only physical weapons and could do nothing to Vis forms. In under 2 days the entire planet was corrupted and by the next day the planet core fractured. The Pravum moved on to catch L-7 which was coming around in its orbit. There was nothing left of L-6. This was repeated on L-7. Then it began moving towards L-5. This time the garrison was larger, having been heavily augmented by garrisons from all the other planets. They were armed with Vis weapons as well as physical. They have held for 8 months, until the Pravum adapted to their tactics and began bombarding stations with asteroids before it would attack. Due to L-5's size it has taken them 4 months to consume the planet and Lumen's top scientists expect it to take another month at least
