Possible Scenarios

Before figuring out what the characters are doing we should decide why they are even on Antares 9 in the first place. Here are some suggestions:

Work for a Megacorporation
They could be a troubleshooting team working at first to find out what is going on. They could be looking at their own megacorporation with someone who has not been taken over by the Sathar, wondering why others want total war or sent in to discover intelligence on other megacorporations.
They could be soldiers who are called up to fight the war but find there is much more at stake and must make difficult moral choices.
They could be regular employees who must team up and go the extra kilometer for their megacorporation.

Star Law Rangers
The party is the local Star Law who try to keep the fighting to a minimum but now find thigns going out of control and must try and put an end to it and find out what is really going on.

Independent group on planet
A few parcels of land went to small groups who colonized for religious, social, economic or just wanted to be left alone reasons. Now these small groups find themselves as either the WWII versions of Hlland or Switzerland or Spain. The party could be members of the independent group or hired by the group to help them out.

Adventureres for Hire
The group hears of trouble and trouble means big paychecks so they arrive on planet looking for a job. Cause you need to find a job to keep your ship flying and keep your Serenity.

Either as one of the groups being brought in or their own warband, the party can quickly become involved in a lot of ways. As long as they get paid.

Basically you have an entire world to play with. This world has every possible thing you could want and do not need a starship to get there. You do not even need the war to be going on since with seven competing megacorporations there is plent of tension and intrigue to play with. Here is a very short list:
War Fighting
Relic Hunting
Sathar Agent Exposure
Exploration of unexplored lands, search for new resources.
Big Game Hunting
Mutations, exposure, gaining, hiding
Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

I'll try to come up with some fleshed out scenarios for you. I've been working on Laco and figured Laco's War never seems to have been fully detailed, so this project could have a bit of cross-over though you have some unique things that should stay with Antares.

There might have been some stealing of ideas anyway since both were TSR products. Main difference being every "Noble Family" head has a psychic power.
