The Winning Bidders
When the Bidding for the contract to explore the Artifact was over there were seven races and cultures that had a stake in the new project.
The Flock were given the contract to repair both the damaged Sphere and all the ships and tools for all the other races and cultures are using to explore the artifact.
POP and The Dark Hunters and The Raizen were all given the contract to rescue those who were displaced by the Weapon. And to Recolonize those peoples either onto the Artifact or on somplace else on the Sphere.
