First is the appropriately named first system visited by the Aetians upon discovering hyperspace technology. At 17 light-years distant, the relatively lifeless system was a disappointing find after a significant expenditure of resources (and a more than 2 year one-way trip time). As time progressed, however, and with further breakthroughs in FTL technology reduced trip times, the system became an important military training base and high-temperature manufacturing center and foundry. A significant portion of the ship hulls used by the Aetians are cast on PassedOver before being put into orbit for further assembly, with most of the workforce consisting of convicted felons exchanging work detail for prison sentences.

A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.

In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
