This group is called The Insurgency. In 2080, the US, Canada, Russia, and Northern Europe joined together to form a government called the Galactic Imperium. A small resistance group against the Galactic Imperium is a liberation movement based in Central America known as Aurelia. They don't have the strength to challenge the massive Imperial battleships in Earth orbit, but after a mysterious event known as The Shift drops the Earth into another galaxy and solar system, the only starships left are those which were docked on the surface. As both sides find allies among the alien inhabitants of this new solar system, Aurelia has a chance to obtain independence, the Galactic Imperium has new planets to explore and make allies with, and the Marauders struggle to find their footing in this new system. Not long after Earth's arrival however, an intergalactic race of mystics known as The Collective also arrive in the system and change everything we thought we knew about the cosmos.

------- THE COLLECTIVE: 441
The Galactic Imperium is a government that spawned from Earth, and eventually gained allies from it's neighboring planets; Qoter, Soateria, and Reador. This faction contains people of all races who want equality and peace throughout the solar system.
Aurelia is a nation of freedom-loving rebels, trying to win its independence from the rabid expansionism of the Galactic Imperium.
Marauders are the criminals of the galaxy. Though they have a small amount of organization, they consist mostly of freelancers and the like. Think Han Solo and Ridick.
The Collective are a race of intergalactic mystics, who, after initially being at war with this galaxy, are now at peace. Think Jedi.

Earth - 2096 technology- antigrav and interplanetary travel, primitive lasers.
Qoter - Most populated planet next to Earth, full of sprawling cities and factories. Technology is about 80 years ahead of Earth's.
Etrion - This small moon of Qoter was once a thriving independent nation, but after a devastating civil war, the population vanished and nomadic raiders moved through. Today, the farms have turned to desert, and the cities are technically empty, but gangs, smugglers, and spies have made their home here.
Soateria - Jungle planet, criscrossed by mountains and methane rivers. Few major cities, mostly built up of small towns here and there.
Iapra - A unique planet, half of which is covered by thick tundra, while the other is covered in scorching desert. This is caused by the fact that it is the closest planet to the sun, and does not spin, causing the desert side to always be facing the sun. The snowy side does get sunlight, however, but only in reflections from the three moons surrounding it. Cities used to fill the equator of the planet, but now they are mostly deserted, housing only the scum of the galaxy.
Faction: Neutral; sympathizes with Marauders
Toliv - A planet covered with water, except for a few small islands. Below the water are a few major cities, with a Roman planet-wide civilization.
Faction: Neutral; sympathizes with GI
Zarus - This planet looks completely red from space because of the color of the iron-filled clouds which cover the sky. Although it has very little water, it has great mineral resources. The native species are named "Zaraan"s. Current base of Aurellian operations.
TIRUNEI: A blue-purple gas giant. Two inhabited moons:
Fuyoria - A moon covered in thick jungle, inhabited solely by small tribes who only speak native tongue, and are quite hostile to outsiders.
Rerador - A colonial planet of Qoter. Really evil looking planet,covered in active volcanoes and brown rock. Features domed cities and smaller towns, linked via above-ground tubes/tunnels.

Husk – Formerly named Tolterros, the planet was destroyed 69 years ago (18th August 2026), bringing to an end an almost decade-long civil war, after a group of terrorists simultaneously detonated a mega-nuclear bomb in the planet core, and fired an apparent super-laser weapon at it from a star cruiser. The cruiser vanished after the event and has not been seen since, leaving some worried about the presence of such a powerful weapon somewhere out there in the system. Now, what remains of the planet is just an asteroid field. The largest of the asteroids has been named Husk, and has a small mining settlement on it, however, not many can work there due to the left over radiation. Nobody likes to venture anywhere near the field though as there are stories about creatures living out there. Some say they are monsters, others, that they were once humans who somehow survived the nuclear bomb and have turned feral, others say that they are the same thing. Some are sceptical, but it is well known that barely any who venture into the asteroids ever come out again. Whether because of the difficult piloting needed, or because of the feral humans, nobody knows for sure, but that doesn’t stop people from being terrified of “The Reapers”, whether they exist or not…
Shillios – Many millennia ago was a watery planet and developed towering coral structures. Now, completely dried up, the coral structures are all that remain. Nearly all of the coral is naturally pink in colour. Those who live on the planet now live within these naturally dried out coral structures.
Dulb – The entire planet is one big swamp. Areas of damp land surrounded by areas of murky, muddy sludge. The plants are overgrown and nocturnal predators stalk the planet, although there are small settlements all over the place. A perfect refuge for those trying not to be found.
Flouron – A lush forest planet, although constantly covered in layers of cloud. The natives are very peaceful and trusting in nature, which, in the past, has led to issues of betrayal, however the natives are forgiving and non-vengeful. They are content to examine the ways of nature and the cosmos.
Ark’lack – An industrial world, covered in factories, warehouses and scrapyards. The years of industrial waste and fumes have polluted the atmosphere so that it is full of smog and the air is thick to breathe.
Deltar Five – The capital planet of the system. Large land masses with numerous snow-topped mountains and shimmering blue oceans give for stunning scenery. Heavily populated but still beautiful in appearance. With both classical and very modern architecture, along with the latest technology, the planet is up-to-date and looking ahead to the future while also being very proud of its heritage. The government here runs all of the planets in this system. Despite it's beauty, there is an area approximately the size of Spain walled off by a one hundred foot tall wall, where there was once a biochemical accident. Nobody is allowed within the walled-off zone. Anybody who somehow manages to get in would instantly die. It is also a no-fly zone, so no ships are ever allowed to pass overhead.
Kepler Neos – A highly sophisticated space station that orbits Deltar Five. Military in nature, built to defend the capital planet. However, as the system has been in an era of peace since the destruction of Tolterros 69 years ago, it has seen little use.
Dracios – A freezing, barren, ice-covered world. Due to a meteor collision centuries ago, millions of tons of rocky debris circle the planet in a huge asteroid belt.

.ONLY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS OF THE COLLECTIVE FACTION.
Hasshu (the Collective word for home) is the traditional capital of the Collective Empire. The Collective Assembly is situated on Hasshu, and functions similarly to Congress or Parliament, except it is largely ceremonial today, as most of the running of the empire is done by the Council, the High Council, and the Archmage, from The Spire. Hasshu is also home to the Royal Palace, the official residence of the Archmage and his or her family. Another key part of Hasshu is The Last Tree; the only tree remaining on Hasshu grown by the original Singers. It is a point of reverence for many. The Last Tree is situated within The Black Room, the biggest temple to Deja anywhere in the Empire other than Quioxes. When building on Hasshu, think Gallifrey from Doctor Who mixed with Tolkien-esque elven architecture; metal and glass should flow as if they have been grown like a tree. Hasshu is majestic, but underground is a web of mystery and intrigue. In deep underground caverns lay the ruins of old cities built by the Singers, long abandoned, and even with the Collective's vast power, there are still mysteries that remain unsolved in the depths...
>>> Planet to Planet Travel Time Guide<<<
This is only a rough guide and, as such, does not show every planet to every planet, but it can be used to work out the rough times to travel to and from them all.
Engine quality should also be considered. If you have a top of the range, brand new fighter, it's going to be quicker than a thrown-together junk rustbucket. However, this difference, for the purposes of simplicity, should only be hours.
WARP DRIVES - Once you have completed Build 3 of the "Space Engineers" League, you can also use your Warp Drive to travel from planet to planet, not just system to system. Warp Drive travel times take A QUARTER of the times stated on the above table. Eg. If that table says a journey takes 4 days, with a warp drive it will take 1 day.
We (The Insurgency Staff) reserve the right to appropriate and use player-created characters as we see fit, if the player has not been active for a period of 3 or more months. If/when the player returns to active participation, the rights to that character revert to said player.
