The eleventh season kicks off the Chorus Trilogy and takes place sometime after the present-day events of Season 10. The story follows the adventures of the Reds and Blues as they are being transported home after being pardoned for helping bring down Project Freelancer. Unfortunately, after their ship crash lands in an unknown location, the Reds and Blues attempt to find a way out of the area, but obtain the unwanted attention of two groups who may have the wrong idea about them.
The twelfth season takes place after the events of Season 11. With their friends in the hands of the Federal Army, Tucker, Grif, Simmons, and Caboose train with the New Republic in order to not only rescue them, but save the planet of Chorus in the process. However, they soon learn that there is more to the war and its combatants then they initially thought.
The thirteenth season takes place directly after the events of Season 12 and wraps up the events of the Chorus Trilogy. After discovering that a group of mercenaries have been manipulating Chorus' two armies throughout the span of the civil war, the Reds and Blues, New Republic and Federal Army of Chorus join forces to go to war against these space pirates and their leader, Malcom Hargrove.

- This is the only saga in the series that does not contain a mini-series. It is also the only saga to end on a cliffhanger.
- In an interview, Miles stated that he compares Season 11 to the Blood Gulch Chronicles, Season 12 to the Recollection trilogy, and Season 13 to the Project Freelancer Saga in terms of tone and scale.
- The setting for each season in the trilogy relates to the scale and theme of its corresponding season. For example:
- Crash Site Bravo, the main setting for Season 11, serves as the home base for the Reds and Blues. This relates to the fact that the season focuses on them. Its size and similar look to Blood Gulch corresponds with the season's tone and scale as well. In addition, the area seems to be distant from the Feds' and Rebels' outposts, which relates to the Reds and Blues being uninvolved in and separate from the conflict between the two armies.
- The New Republic Headquarters, the main setting for a majority of Season 12, becomes the new home base for the Reds and Blues. This seems appropriate as the season focuses more on the Rebel soldiers. Its size compared to Crash Site Bravo corresponds to the season's raise in stakes. Its location, being underground, could also relate to the idea of struggle, as the amount of struggle the Blood Gulch Crew undergo in order to reveal the truth to the Chorus armies relates to the struggle the New Republic have undergone throughout the civil war.
- Armonia, the main setting for Season 13, serves as the base of operations for the Feds, Rebels, and Blood Gulch Crew. This could relate to the number of characters the season contains as well as the season's increase in stakes and scale. In addition, the season places more focus on the Feds, mainly Doyle, which is fitting as Armonia formerly acted as the Federal Army's home base. In relation to the Reds and Blues, Armonia, being the capital of Chorus, relates to the crew being in the heart of the conflict between Charon and the people of Chorus.
- The number 57 has appeared repeatedly throughout the trilogy: twice in Season 11, once in Season 12, and four times in Season 13 (if including PSAs). This has caused many to speculate its meaning and how it would impact Season 13, the season that aired at the time. Some thought it meant Season 13 would have 19 episodes, bringing the total episodes in the Chorus Trilogy to 57. However, in an AfterBuzz TV interview, Miles Luna revealed that its repeated appearance was a coincidence.
- Simmons' farm was 57% more efficient for resources.
- In Fire, Tucker stops Donut's upload to Basebook at 57%.
- In Self Assessment, Caboose says his lottery numbers are 5 and 7.
- In Prologue, Mayers reads a computer monitor displaying '57% damage to external thruster'.
- In the same episode, Aiden Price says Carolina is "57% more likely to neglect her teammates when presented with a competitive scenario."
- In Capital Assets, Matthews thanks Grif for the fifty-seventh time.
- In the PSA Warning: Trigger Warnings one of Caboose's triggers is the number 57.
