INTRO The search for a perfect civilization where peace is the maintenance of life, and political and social equality is at a complete balance, has been a dream for many hundreds of thousands of years. However, it is an unrealistic dream due to simple human characteristics and errs. Human kinds' lack of stability and balance, as well as their drive for acting upon strong emotion, especially anger, causes us to be flawed creatures with a tendency to destroy rather than create and maintain. Throughout history humans find themselves in turmoil and war with each other, killing their own species for the sake of power. It is forever an unyielding cycle of destruction. We are of a future of extraordinary possibilities, and technological breakthroughs. We've traversed through the universe, crossing new galaxies and expanding our overall domain. Medical technologies have advanced to where artificial lifeforms are not simply a figment of our imagination, and we can create a synthetic environment to survive upon. New species and cultures have come about, and the bounds of our political hold have multiplied. Despite past tensions, an age of relative peace among the universe has dawned upon us. Peace, however, is only a passage to lead to eventual tension, and cannot last forever. The delicate balance of peace can be easily tipped, and it may only take a sliver for it to become unraveled again. Emotion is not something that only humans can hold, and emotions often times are what cause the most trouble among even the most logical of beings. HISTORY In the future, many things have come to be and many more things have come to pass. Earth is a memory of its once glorious self, most of it being destroyed by the Great War (also known as the First War) in 2023. Technology has advanced to a phenomenal degree, allowing us new and extended space travel/machinery, as well as a surge in robotics (especially cyborg parts and android lifeforms), and synthetic reproduction. Most of what is left of natural earth is of ruin and waste, and the few natural areas left are slowly dying away. To save the species from dying out, like so many other species upon the broken planet, humans scattered to the reaches of space, and created synthetic domed areas of life within the few habitable areas left on Earth. Terra formations have been created with our newest technologies to house human beings and other creatures in the vast limits of open space. Space stations were forged to live upon in mechanical bliss, and other planets have been found to be human habitable. Along with our extended exploration and colonization of other worlds, new alliances and enemies have been made with many other life forms we’ve encountered in our long searches, some similar to our own, and others far from it. Despite that, interplanetary as well as galactic diplomacy has come into consideration. The need for supply and demand of various items is a wonderful bargaining tool for intergalactic trade and peace. Now, we dawn upon a new age where humans and other species co-exist to a mostly peaceful extent. Wars, of course, have broken out in the past and are still prone to do so. The most recent war, The Second Great War (or the Second War), spread through the universe in 2063, 40 years after the First War, and almost resulted in total demise of everything. However, peace was eventually gained through a galactic treaty, and an alliance was made. Most of the powerful planets from the galaxy joined an alliance known as The Intergalactic Alliance (IGA) to help try and maintain peace through the galaxies. The IGA functions similar to what Earth knew as the United Nations (UN), or so it tries. CURRENT SITUATION For two decades now things have been at relative peace through the galaxies. Trade is phenomenal, travel is mostly open, and relations seem strong among the alliance territories. The IGA holds tightly together, overlooking relations and keeping peace among the galaxies; they house themselves on a terra formation called Gaia, formed in the center of the galaxies. The most vast and beautiful of all formations, it’s considered the head area of the universal governing. This new age can be seen as a Golden Age, and thought of as a momentary Utopia for human kind and others. However, all this faces the chance of being torn apart as forces from even further outside our reach threaten to destroy the peace that has been created. An entity known as Gallatros, meaning Dark Prince in the their tongue seeks to create an empire of the galaxies and rule over them with an iron fist and cold heart. They are prepared to do this by any means necessary. Though they poses little threat at the moment, they are not overlooked just yet. Gallatros is slowly making progress in their goals. Already their "empire" spreads in the western borders of the galaxy, and news of their name and sinister ideals are spreading. PLOT Enter now a rag-tag group of miss-fit individuals upon a simple 'cargo' ship called The Valiant trying to make ends meat! They seem like nothing more than vagabonds trying to make a living by cargo caring and other ‘odd’ jobs, but there is much more to each and every one of these individuals, as well as the individuals they meet along the way. Perhaps they may find that they could eventually hold the balance of peace for the darkness that approaches by banding together with allies to demolish the evil. So welcome to a new era where if you set your mind to something almost anything is possible. Where danger and adventure may be around any corner! What will your part in this life be?
