3045AD A Peace and Prosperity treaty is signed into place between the two species.
3055-4000AD The Pun War lasted approximately 45 Earth years. Advances in space travel and weaponry leap frog-ed to current understanding of Gravatonic Drives and near Light speeds.
4001AD Peace is signed and a forging of a Council of Orion much like the UN of Earth but with more power by controlling the Military might and Space Law Enforcement agencies of the three systems.
4030AD Multiple encounters of various intelligent species as the Council sends out scout and settlement ships.
4054AD The First Bug War starts when a remote research station is attacked and taken.
4058AD With a mighty push the Bugs were pushed back to original boarders and an Armistice is signed.
4065AD After the Great War all was thought to be turning to normal but the Clones who have been settling the stars and fighting the Wars of the Citizen’s start a revolt.
An Emergency Meeting was held and it was decided to place all military control under a figure head the Bugs would recognize as someone they could capitulate to otherwise the war would defiantly bring all civilizations to destruction.
Creation of Her Majesty Royal Armed Forces was created with a “Queen” appointed by the Council.
5083AD Current time, the resources of the inner systems of the Council are found to be very finite and a new push for collections of resources both local and reaching out to the outer systems grows anew.
Lethargy and Graft plagues Law Enforcement and the Military. The Queen has a firm grasp of the Military and the Council are now the figure heads. An Empire is born.
