In the incredible vastness of space, there were always man-made and alien-made structures to destroy the monotony of the stars. However, there were many pockets were only a very few intelligent creatures were capable of building something that would last for centuries. One of these objects, that happened to remain almost completely anonymous to larger factions, was the Periit Station. The exact whereabouts are unknown, except for a few lucky people, but that's where the Blue Moon faction had found itself after their escape from the Lux Republic. There were only a few ships remaining in the once large fleet, but these ships were nothing to be scoffed off.
The fierce, dark blue designs had inspired fear into the hearts of all civilians, and yet, now they sat here, heavily damaged and ready for a decommision. This wasn't the mission for that, however, as their leader, Val Anderson, was only here for a refueling and pointing toward the nearest maintenance shop.
Six out of the ten remaining ships, stayed a light minute away, not willing to sacrifice their stronger ships if something were to happen. The other four were slowly cruising into the station's radar area, two smaller transports disengaging from their hangar bays. They were not much larger than an old rocket, but they held two of the most important members of the Blue Moon Faction.
One transport stood Chris Aulcriwz, his towering frame looming over the underlings. The other transport held Ruby Alawarzi, her small stature making others not fearful of her hidden strength. They cruised into one of the larger hangars, their transports slowly coming to a hissing halt as the landing gear deployed. Within seconds of them landing, smaller 'dumb' robots rolled out from their resting places, pushing forward to refuel and repair the ships. As the robots were doing their job, the door in the front hissed open, revealing six members on each ship. The two leaders walked outside, coming to meet up in between where the ships were docked. The other eight members, walked out afterward, their stark blue armour marking them as soldiers. With each ship under heavy surveillance and hourly guard, the two leaders marched forward, making their way through the large station.
Following the holo-signs that hung at every turn, they moved from the hangars to the bar/meeting area in a relatively short time. The bar door hissed open revealing dozens of men and women dancing with passion in the center of the room. These weren't the only attendants, the rest were shadowed in the sparsely lighted area which held the seats.
The two, having done their checks on all attendants, moved forward, pushing past the dancing ones and arriving at the bar area, their backs to the entrance. As they sat, Chris whispered something to Ruby who quickly moved from her spot next to him to an adjoining seat that had a line of sight to the door. With their positions set, they waited.
Unbeknownst to the two new attendants, the Lux Republic had utilized some of their sleeper agents to get in contact with a man known as Regulus. He was an artifact collector and considered one of the 'most knowledgeable' in the field of unknown space. He was promised a large sum of money to end the life of these two, and Val if given the chance, and was promised a seat at a private auction house to obtain some artifacts from a very powerful man in the Lux.

The quiet pitter-patter of rain on the shutters filled the silence that enveloped the Versaille household. The large house, positioned 6 340 above sea level, was dark as the front door slammed shut. The boys eyes shot open as he ripped his blankets off, the light from his alarm clock briefly illuminating him as his hand slammed down on the desk. His breath was labored as he looked down at his hands which were shaking from the nightmare that had awoken him. His pale skin reflected some of the light coming through the windows, the dual-moons of Eden-II shining down on him. His scarlet-irises shown through the darkness as he stood, the monitoring system quickly notifying him that he still had four-hours and thirty-seven-minutes left to sleep. The monotone voice also notified him that the front door had opened a little over thirty-seconds prior to him waking. With a huff, he marched out of his room, the cold tile biting into his bare feet as he made his way toward his father's room. Before he pushed the door open, he knew that his father would not be there and he would only be greeted by the rumpled sheets from which his father had just left. The door was soundless as he pushed inward, the sight of an empty bed confirming his suspicions. He took two quiet steps forward, listening to the sound of the rain pounding and trying to see if anyone was in the house with him. Suddenly, a flash of lightning followed instantly with the roaring of the thunder, threw the boy into a frenzy as he dashed out of the room, his feet slapping as he raced down the stairs. He calmed as he realized how dumb he felt. A Versaille, creators of the orbital rings, naval shipyards, and Hellfire-Missile Destroyer running from some weather? Regardless, the fear still crept into his bones as he made his way to the front window, his voice shaking as he spoke.
"Ellie, is my father still here?"
A female voice rang out as he finished the question.
"He left a few minutes ago. He had an important meeting with the Department of Safety."
"Of course he did."
The boy let a sigh out, realizing he was left alone for another night.
"He always does."

Once the colonization of Cre'sarak had reached a point where intergalactic trade had begun to take off, there had been some talk of making it easier to travel between the systems under Lux control. There were many ideas that had entered and been denied by the High Council, but one that continued to bounce around was the idea of a FTL gate.
They would take a strong hyperdrive engine, mount it inside a ring that would be seven miles in diameter, and then utilize magnetic fields to project outward. This was also the base for the Orion Communication Outlet (O.C.O) which would allow all Lux Republic Captains to contact home.
Regardless, these gates would be expensive to produce but would be beneficial in the long run as more trade spread between the stars. As well as having some commercial benefits, these gates would be easy to defend, and would allow for the military to shut them off if there were ever a threat. With so many reason for these gates to be built, the idea was proposed to the King.
The King was a fair man who was once in the military while his father was the king and had many degrees detailing why he was so fit to be king. He had multiple business degrees, had served time in the military and knew what it was like to be a leader, and had intense training as an officer. With all of this he viewed the plans before approving the construction, allowing the military to begin construction.

The multi-biomed planet gave the Lux access to many different options with which they could chose to pick. This also created some tension among the High Council and King as many believed that Cre'Sarak should operate as a major military base, while others believed they should conquer another planet before dedicating such a plentiful world for militarization. With time restrictions having placed a time limit on how long the council could debate, it was chosen by a ration of 3:1 that Cre'sarak would become a farming world that would produce a large portion of trade and commonwealth. There would need to be some major changes, starting with the construction of large 'solar shutters' that would aid in changing the climate. Once these solar shutters came into play, the environment would become somewhat static and farming could commence.
Along with solar shutters, vertical farming would be utilized fully, having thousands of layers of different crops plastered all over the world. There would be isolated sections of continents that would contain cities and nature preserves, but, the majority of land mass would contain farms that stretched for miles up, and out. This would give the Lux an extreme boost in food production and would allow for serious galactic trade. The construction of such large and powerful objects would commence once the King toured his new territory...

The white glow of Te’lanu gently lit up the sky of Cre’Sarak. The terrestrial planet, stationed a few thousand kilometers from the sun, was around three times the size of Earth, had temperamental weather similar to ours, and had a rotational period of thirty-four hours. Due to Te’Lanu being a white dwarf star, which tended to be quite small and luminous, the yearly periods fluctuated ranging from four-hundred-and-thirteen Earth days, all the way to six-hundred-and-twenty-seven. While this created some very cold winters and some very hot summers, it made the planet even more beautiful than it already was. With the gravitational pull of the star messing with the tides and tectonic plates, it had created mountains so vast that there had never been a creature to ascend to their points. It had also created oceans that were vastly unexplored due to the massive crevices that were thought to have creatures of massive proportions. Along with the ridiculous depths, the waves were colossal extending (at some points) to over one-thousand feet. While the planet seems quite hostile to newcomers, it has become home to thousands of native species that have mastered the dangerous environments and thrived.
While the planet was quite hostile, there were much more dangerous things looming above the planet. While many might mistake them for small moons or asteroids stuck in the orbit of Cre’Sarak, these intimidating constructions were multiple kilometers long and floated silently above the planet, waiting. While it wasn’t clear if these motherships could launch fighters or just housed a species, it was quite clear that they did have a detachment of battleships. Their numbers weren’t as vast as expected with; three Seraphim Hive Ships, six cargo freighters, and four large battlecruisers per hive ship.
The Lux Republic had gone to council many times in order to decide if they were going to invade another species’ planet, but it had come to mutual agreement that if they were going to establish a dominating presence in the Milky Way galaxy, they would have to start colonizing and conquering planets. Cre’Sarak had been chosen carefully for its access to common hyper-space lanes and another terrestrial planet which could be terraformed to hold massive farming regions while also acting as a trading hub. With dozens of drones being shot into the system for some preliminary scanning and to ensure they had counted the ships correctly, they brought forward two Eta War Fleets along with one Zeta Carrier Fleet for backup. This was the largest force ever conceived for the Lux Republic and with battle strategies in mind, they warped into the system, ready to shake off the dust from the last war.
