The Orion Empire is one of two famous (or infamous) empires in our part of the Galaxy, the Draconian Empire being the other. The Orion Empire is more recent than the Draconian Empire. It was established soon after the Vegans engaged in space exploration and encountered reptilian civilizations with whom they shared a common agenda of colonization, imperialism, and service to self. It consists of a mixture of reptilian and humanoid civilizations. The Greys form the majority of these reptilian civilizations, whereas most of the humanoid civilizations are of Vegan descent. Approximately one in every six worlds in the Orion constellation has a reptilian population.
