Back Story

Conflict

There are many types of conflicts in the universe. Conflicts that mold galaxies, make history, and manipulate lives. Perhaps the most common form of conflict is the conflict of interest, especially today. A time, when the Galaxy is divided and some species are profiting while others are simply not, or worse. It is a time when the line between friend and foe is constantly changing; a time when prejudice and hate still roam free.

It has been 82 years since the Burning Battle. This great battle was suppose to determine the fates of the Confederation and Kilrathi once and for all, the feud was to come to an end, one way or another. Each side had gathered their best pilots to the [T'lan [JC1] Meth] sector preparing for the final showdown. Without warning a massive explosion (Dooms Day Weapon) powerful enough to wipe out 12 planets was detonated, resulting in massive casualties on both sides. An entire generation was practically wiped out.

Both sides blamed one another, but it didn’t matter, the damage was done Both the Confederation and Kilrathi empires were crippled. The result: an inevitable cease fire which in its own way, secured peace throughout the galaxy.

Some say the Burning Battle was a blessing in disguise, while others feel it was a conspiracy and seek vengeance on the conspirators. Only two things are known for sure:

One, the [T'lan Meth] sector has been vacant from any life for almost a century now.

And two, the tragedy has forced the Kilrathi and Confederation forces to strengthen their relationship, to the point were peace talks have emerged between the once rival empires.

These talks have sparked entirely new issues for the Confederation, hurling it into its first civil war. Sides are being drawn and erased with every new conclusion. The confederate forces are now divided, fighting each other over this new tomorrow.

With war, comes opportunity. The only people that seem to be comfortable in this era of confusion and deceit are the Privateers, a mercenary spacer who may profit by trading, performing various missions, or pirating. In a time of conflict, the opportunties are endless.

[JC1]The T’Lan Meth System is a debris field already… makes sense.
