For millennia the Gurlivin used their advanced technologies to enslave thousands of planets. A series of rebellions broke their hold on the galaxy, but before they could be defeated, the entire race mysteriously disappeared. Made powerful by technologies they barely understood, worlds finally freed of tyrannical oppressors went to war for all that was left behind. After centuries of stalemates, the three dominant species—humanoid, saurian, and Zajj formed the Galactic Tribunal, ushering in a new era of cooperation among the free world governments. The rise of wealth and resources that followed brought with it greed, exploitation, and crime.
Under the constant threat of conquerors that may one day return, these stories explore a space opera setting where a dawning era of galactic trade is being threatened by piracy and smuggling.
