“Once we found a way to overcome stellar gravity and travel beyond the boundaries of the native planetary system, many sought to take the lead in colonizing deep space, reasonably assuming that whoever comes first will claim more territories and resources than the rest.
Major world powers and the corporations behind them engaged in bloody military conflicts, competing for a unique and precious resource: a substance of unknown origin dispersed throughout the galaxy, which was discovered to serve as jump-drive fuel that enabled starships to leap enormous distances and venture outside the home system. Harvesting this resource became a number one priority for anyone who aspired to explore and dominate vast areas of the universe.
Fighting over the right to benefit from this mysterious ancient gift, the world depleted its own resources. As it became apparent that further large-scale hostilities may lead to the extinction of our very civilization, the warring parties summoned a worldwide assembly and adopted a universal declaration, which decreed that territorial disputes in outer space be decided through tactical engagements by limited groups of spacecraft. A corporation would secure a monopoly right to harvest resources in a specific sector by dispatching a battle group and scoring a victory against a rival fleet. Thus, while maintaining military force as an instrument for settling disputes, the world has limited its use to prevent an all-out war and ensure itself against total destruction”.
