GALOGRAPHICS



THE AANN EMPIRE :

The AAnn Empire occupies a portion of the Galaxy proximate to the Commonwealth, in the Orion Arm. Approximately 1600 x 700 parsecs in size, it is divided into at least 14 Quadrants, and contains a minimum of 32 inhabited systems.

Protected by a highly efficient detection and defense network. Exceptionally large surface-to-space shuttles operate here.

Before the Vom's arrival, circa 501,000 B.C., this planet apparnetly had a moderately successful ecosystem with typical terrestrial forms.



THE HUMANX COMMONWEALTH :
