Humanity, as it calls itself, has begun to spread out across the stars to stake claim to the galaxy’s bounty. The recent invention of subspace technology has revolutionized the growth of the species in a fundamental way. No longer is space and food fought over, instead of having to war with somebody to gain precious new land, someone can just apply to acquire some. Humanity has spread out to sixteen systems with habitable planets so far. Humanity has entered it’s golden space age, and the amount of conflict apparent is mere politician’s squabbles and criminal activity. There is no more human war, at least, not for right now.
