Humanity had reached out to the stars. After thousands of years on planet Earth a team of scientists lead by Richard Barker had discovered the light jump and the ability to travel Faster than light. Even to distant stars. So for the next four hundred years we spread out among the stars. Finding evidence of older races and races as young as we are. We have outposts on many more worlds than we have colonies. In order to be a colony you must have a certain level of population and industrial production. Only conlonies have voting rights and the right to govern the areas under thier control. Much like the United States the colonies are more or less independent form one another offering taxes and resources to the federal government which is relativly weak. The main branch of the Federal government is the UCSC. United Colonies Space Command. A single military branch responsible for the defence of trade routes, outposts and colonies though out human space.
