"The Arms of Orion" is a slow, romantic duet by Prince and Sheena Easton from the 1989 Batman soundtrack. Released after "Batdance" and "Partyman" had both gone top 20 in UK/U.S. charts, the single never made it past 36 on Billboard's Hot 100. "The Arms of Orion" is a tender but somewhat melodramatic ballad that is accompanied mainly by the piano. Synthesizers also play a strong role throughout the song, programmed to emulate a string section. The track also uses a subdued drum machine loop and samples of rain and thunder. The lyrics allude to the constellation of Orion, implying that the arms of the figure in the sky are wide enough to hold him and his lover together, although the lovers are far apart.The song reached no.5 in the U.S R&B chart.

Orion tales - Faq (1812 words)
As well, Orion's Arm might be the name of a political-diplomatic-military-economic organization developed by an AI that rules the Orion Nebula and the Orion Federation.
In addition to (a) the emphasis on hard science, Orion's Arm differs in that (b) human beings are no longer the dominant intelligence in the galaxy and (c) the role of alien empires is replaced by empires of various terragen phyles and races, whether biological, cyborg, robot, or ai.
In fact, there are no current major alien empires at all in Orion's Arm, although there are relics and artifacts left by former mighty alien races, as well as a small number of current but much less powerful alien species (either once great races now in decline, or species in their infancy).
THE NEW DAYS (1290 words)
Orion ships and crews visited only their own settlements, but many corporations and families hired alien ships and crews to haul for them, quietly, preserving the illusion of no Orion involvement.
Orion artisans and craftsmen tried to outdo each other to build larger, grander, and more ornate cities, towns, and markets-the more and the faster, the better for everyone.
Orions wanted an inhabited world so that they could worm their way into the local economy and ingratiate themselves with their 'new business partners'.
