A 3 page diversion before we jump into episode two. This is kind of like a thesis statement of an essay; it kind of lays down what exactly I will be addressing later on.

This time, we visit with the highest officers of The Federation. Next time, after episode two, we’ll see what the Blassnaught Empire has to say.

The Federation and Empire are currently in a kind of cold war. Both factions are seeking to explore and claim new territories. New races that are found are naturally invited to join in the effort, though there are rumors that the Blassnaught are not only conscripting new allies, but giving them a technological leg up, though they’re still fairly primitive. This is a pretty damn serious concern.
