Solar system 'RYE (VHA503)' comprises the star 'RYE' and the retinue of celestial objects gravitationally bound to it: 11 planets and their 1043 moons, as well as asteroids, meteoroids, planetoids, comets, and interplanetary dust.

The principal component of this star system is the star 'RYE', a red dwarf class star that contains about 99.19% of the system's known mass and dominates it gravitationally. RYE is located more than 3566 lightyears from the center of the galaxy.

Seetha, the first planet in this system, may feature life forms. Its average temperature is 307K (34C) and it's atmosphere contains 16% of oxygen. One year on Seetha lasts 291 days, one day lasts 13 hours. It's diameter is 18862 km, 1.4 times the diameter of the Earth.

RYE Prime, the second planet in this system, features organic life forms generally very intelligent that have developed a high tech civilisation capable of utilizing hyperspace technology to explore their own solar system as well as distant star systems. Its average temperature is 273K (0C) and it's atmosphere contains 17% of oxygen. One year on RYE Prime lasts 535 days, one day lasts 27 hours. It's diameter is 33574 km, 2.6 times the diameter of the Earth.

**Asterisk will be used for elements relating to "real life", such as this paragraph. The info found within this wiki, is a civilization created and conceived by Stephen Schaffer, please note that my spelling and grammar is horrid. This is an ongoing / growing document of the planets and its people.
Passage of time and the time log are integral to the story. The "Time Log" will be a very important tool for readers to keep up with the RYE. The log will be located on the wiki page for the 3rd planet in the system "Hesta (TIME LOG). Each log will chronicle the last few years of the RYE. Some log posts will be short others long and still more will fall somewhere in between. The logs could be quite dry and informative, while other could be entertaining and comical. The first log is here on the star home page starting in the RYE year 129 CAD (see below). This log will get you familiar with time frames within this fictional universe. The writing relies heavily on the history of the participants, so dating and keeping things in chronological order is of the utmost importance. I hope you enjoy seeing a race of people grow and learn while expanding in the universe. Each log will have this structure "TIME LOG --RYE DATE--version number //REAL LIFE DATE OF POSTING. Regular logs will start the first week of September 2013. Once I have more of the wiki set up and back ground details placed. See below for the first time log and its title structure. I may be contacted via email at stephen@tux2u.com if you have questions or wish to contribute to the story. //08.23.2013**

TIME LOG 129v1 //08.23.2013

Hello, my name is; Xintiji Vin'Kretio...I'm a astro-historian for the RYE Empire. The current year is CAD 129
I have been charged with writing the history of the RYE people to date.

Our time scale should be explained in detail so that what you read will make chronological sense.
Our civilization has created five periods of time to record history.
PC / Pre-Cognative = Creation (1.1 billion years) to 247,890 years ago
CC / Co-Cognative = 247,889 to 10,256 years ago
AD / Ancient Adaptive = 10,255 to 765 years ago
SI / Stable Informative = 764 to 0 (start of CAD)
CAD / Celestial Advanced Development = 0 to 129 (current date as of writing)

PC --- PC, is a measurement of time during the creation of life in our solar system. During this time planets in the RYE system underwent many changes.
No, notable cognitive life as we know it today existed. However we do have various objects that are celestial in origin that have been dated to this period. We are actively studying and researching these objects for answers.
During the PC period, the planets grew massive fauna and the planets formed unique biomes. The animal ancestors of the RYE people, date back to approximately 1.7 Billion PC. This is about as close to the actual date we have been able to get. The first known creature in our evolutionary past is a Cretakor **Similar to a reptile**. It goes without saying that all life on the planets threw out the RYE system came from single cell organisms, but after those sprang to life...branches started to form quickly.

CC --- At the close of the PC period, many cognitive creatures appeared on RYE Prime due to its lush and varied biomes. We call this the co-cognitive period because evidence shows about 8 different intelligent cultures. All existing at the same time and many historians feel that there may have been up to 15-20. Sadly not evidence of the additional cognitive races have been found. The first evidence has dated to 247,889 CC, a small tool called a Scapa **knife or scraper** was discovered under miles of bedrock. The race who created it was designated as "Leek Origin". In the same general area of the scapa find, other artifacts have been found over the years. Based on bone with DNA evidence the Leek Origin hailed from a Teltog **insect** creature, but due to the mass numbers of this type of creature we have not been able to determine the exact one. The first evidence of a religious following, burial, and first signs of language. The Leek Origin like many other cognitives never made to the AD period. An oddity of this period was various objects made with refined metal. The technology at this time did not support such creations and the purpose of the objects are not know. One object in particular is made from a celestial metal. Current research to learn more about these objects have yet to yield anything of promise. By the end of the CC period only 2 cognitive races remained. These races formed a mutual bond that worked to ensure survival. The RYE and Vinnix...both races are unique in appearance and sociology. Thus the two races ushered in the new period of time.

AD --- The ancient adaptive period starts with the formation of the Duo-Race alliance made between the RYE and Vinnix peoples. Both races had been embroiled in a nasty war with a third race know as the Fritt. To ensure that neither race was destroyed leaders meet to create an alliance. This alliance was so successful that by 10,256 CC the last Fritt city was destroyed and each and every Fritt child was killed. 10,255 was then deemed by an alliance council to be a new era of enlightenment for both surviving races. Modern historians term this period as ancient adaptive, because during this time the alliance learned to adapt many technologies to build larger cities, grow food, medicine and science sprang forth...the pull of arcane and spiritual customs began to wain. Another notable social change during this period was the apparent superiority of the RYE race, who by the end of the period became the dominate of the two. This had not happened due to intellect but to matters of reproduction. The RYE only possessed two sexes and fetal incubation was about 8 months, whereas the Vinnix had three sexes and all three were required to create offspring...not to mention incubation was 14 months. In short order RYE out numbered Vinnix by 3 to 1...then 4 to 1...and this got worse. The saving grace for the Vinnix was intellectual superiority. Social unrest started due to the disparage in population around 1465 AD. The alliance council now mostly under the control of RYE leadership agreed to force the masses into submission by military force after Vinnix council members refused to provide life saving medicine for a plague out break on the continent of Shadin. The Vinnix saw this as an opportunity to even out the the population. Facing the potential of 5-10 million RYE deaths the council agreed to use other means to stop the unrest. By 978 AD the unrest had stopped and it was placed on good authority that if not for the intellect of Vinixx doctors the RYE race would not longer exist. The Vinnix needed to resolve the issue with reproduction, they felt given time the dark period of the population unrest would start again. Research was conducted to find a solution. It was discovered in 2% of the RYE population was an enzyme similar to the one used in Vinnix reproduction. The council agreed to allow this 2% to be used for such a purpose. Any RYE child fitting this profile, is now removed by the state and placed in custody of the Vinnix Reproductive Authority Council. Since the law was formed in 770 AD, there has been an increase of 18% Vinnix population. Unrest it kept at a minimum in regards to ripping children from there parents by the council feeding lies to the population telling them that these children are carriers of an old virus and thus must be removed for public safety. This lie has endured since 770 AD to the present (129 CAD) and is without a doubt the closest kept secret in history.

SI --- Stable Informative, has until recently been one of the most enlightened times in RYE history. Technological advances grew by leaps and bounds. One of the driving forces in technological growth, was the need to create better ways to use the limited resources on the planet. With population growths booming and advanced medicines preventing early age death, the drain on the planet started to become critical. This resulted in the water wars of 431 SI, were two protectorates vying over a fresh water lake turned into bloodshed. This incident spilled out to other protectorates threw out the planet. Sadly the death toll, solved the most immediate population problem with close to 25% of the RYE population dead and 6% Vinnix. This set a tone for the council to seek other ways to prevent resource fighting in the future. Spending was green light on technologies in recycling, clean energy and space exploration. Space exploration stayed close to home during the following 200 years, many of the moons have been surveyed and even a few were landed on. Propulsion technology ramped up in the last 100 years of the period after an unexpected discovery on the moon Gala Blue. Some sort of crashed vessel was found during a mining expedition. The vessel was mostly in tact, however nothing had power. The best any of the Vinnix scientists were able to do was fabricate a version of the engine at about 20% efficiency. It was apparent the ship could reach vast speeds somewhere in the range of 7-9 FTL, thus at this time FTL was coined as the new term for the measurement of speed. What had originally been thought impossible was now a distinct reality. A new era dawned with the launch of the first FTL ship in 2 SI. The ship was appropriately called "Whiplash", it had numerous design flaws and the first 2 crews were killed when the ship jumped to FTL .4 and .7 receptively. This was due to the fact no dampers for the internal structure of the ship was in placed. When it jumped, everyone inside was tossed around like a carnival ride with no safe guards! By the time of the 3rd launch, some minor gravitational dampers had been added, along with of all things SEATBELTS. The crew opted for a slower jump of .3 only one crew member died, in what is now more of a joke. His name was Huss Ganto, at the time of launch Huss was on the toilet...yes funny but true. There was no announcement speakers in the bathroom and Huss never knew that launch was starting. When the ship launched so did HUSS, right off the toilet and into the bulk head. POOR HUSS!

CAD --- Celestial Advanced Development, is they current time frame the Vinnix scientists are calling it. We now have 7 FTL ships able to safely fly 1.5 FTL. The alliance was renamed in preparation for our first colonies to be placed in the next few years. They are now calling us the RYE Empire. Exploration of our solar system is under full swing and further development of the FTL is an ongoing constant. Plans are underway for a 10-12 year round trip flight to another solar system, once we break the 2 FTL threshold. This is expected to be a reality withing the next few years. Proactively the crew, supplies and even the ship are ready to go...they are just waiting to drop an engine in. The destination is VHA486, and the Vinnix have laid claim to its name.
