Facing certain doom, civilizations worldwide were rapidly disintegrating as global temperatures dropped. The general population took to rioting in a desperate display of panic and fear. Blood was freely flowing in the streets and the value of life plummeted to near zero.Racing against time the combined efforts of human science had found no solution to the inevitable extinction mankind was facing. There was no escape, until one day. As if by divine intervention a massive wormhole opened up in the inner solar system and nations combined forces to explore the phenomenon.The result was that the many exploratory trips through the wormhole were highly successful. After years of frantic construction of untried space-vehicles most of Earth’s population took the chance. Most of the world’s governments used all of the resources they could collectively rally.Most governments chose to make the escape with as many people as possible, but during the closing phases of the escape the wormhole suddenly collapsed. Most of humanity had fled the encroachment of the ice for the hope of a new life on distant worlds. Humanity rebuilt anew in a far away region of the Milky Way. A new age had begun on three, diverse and very inhabitable planets that were discovered in three closely knit solar systems on the other side of the wormhole.Once at their new home things went wrong, very wrong. Struggle over raw materials created the initial spark of conflict. Aluminum alloys were the required material for the vehicles of space commerce and space commerce was the engine of civilization.As the conflict over aluminum grew, religious and ethnic hatred fueled unrest while severe political differences finally plunged humanity into prolonged and multiple civil and separatist wars. War was the ongoing theme for more than a millennia.A solitary figure emerged from the blood bath, a leader among men. They called him Kush Nubia and he forged an Empire.After four generations of rule, the last Emperor, Atlan Nubia dissolved the Empire to create one Republic for all humanity, as he deeply believed in the old and arcane concept of personal human liberty. That Republic was to be based on the ideals from the arcane history of old Earth’s eighteenth to twenty-second centuries.As the new Republic grew it experienced many problems of its own. Corruption invaded the hallowed halls of justice. The quest for personal wealth was the price paid to the demon of collective tyranny that continuously lunged at the throat of personal liberty.Unbeknownst to the general population a threat to extinguish the Republic emerged. The fortitude of a solitary man with the help of a small band of intrepid adventurers stepped out of obscurity and into history as they embarked on a long and desperate journey and braved the unknown for the salvation of mankind.War with the invaders was the cost of life and when the Battle for Humanity was waged and won the cost in treasure and blood was high, but pay the price humanity did. After the war was only a memory, the citizenry settled back onto their lives, oblivious to the coming events that would shape their ever-changing world.Technology was the catalyst that would drive human civilization to new heights. Technology would also bring threats to humanity from far off reigns of the galaxy. Stand and fight or die was the call.
