Oh ya, I already wrote a backstory, so I might as well post it here:
This is the back story for the ongoing battle between Lukanian and Tylorian forces-
10 years ago, the galaxy was at peace, with the entire galaxy ruled under one name, the Republic of Lukania. (of course, it wasn't the entire galaxy, there were of course independent planets and systems, and some planets that were simply not advanced enough to try to establish communication). Times were good, and everyone was happy.
Then, one day the leader of the Lukanians decided that in order to increase research and colonization, they should create some sort of super-human, one that could withstand some of the harshest elements of nature, since outside of a galaxy's gravity, conditions were extremely harsh. Research soon commenced at the Lukanian academy of research where an elite team of researchers, including Luke, Legolas, Josh, Tim, T.J, and Tinkxador soon developed a solution. The solution was able to increase the strength, intelligence, and reflexes of a human, and feeling that it was perfected, they tested it on half of the team to see how much more powerful they actually got. (the solution was tested on Tim, T.J., and Tinkxador). At first the solution worked incredibly well, and it was deemed a success. They decided to call the solution Tylorex, and soon mass-marketed the solution to some of the members of the expedition team, while Luke, Legolas, and Josh continued without the solution as controls. Everything seemed to be going well until something terrible happened.
It started with the original subjects, then spread until anyone under Tylorex became infected. You see the problem with Tylorex was that while it did increase intellect, strength, and reflexes, it limited the emotion that the people could show, turning the subjects into pretty much living machines. (in other words, while they were all super-powerful, they were cold and passionless.)They were then deemed unfit for the expedition, since part of the reason they were sending humans in the first place was to see how people feel to be outside the galaxy.
While they could not feel some of the more advanced emotions, like happiness and fear, they could feel anger, and anger they felt. They quickly led a rebellion across the galaxy, recruiting people far and wide under the promise of superhuman reflexes. They took control of the outer regions of the galaxy, and called themselves the Tylorians. However, the people who were uninfected felt the situation had gone too far and so became lost. Luke, Legolas, and Joshua knew what they had to do, since they were part of the team that created Tylorex. They managed to take control of the rapidly decaying government, and restored order to Lukania.
After that, they quickly forged a peace treaty with the Tylorians, under terms unknown to most and they called it the Alpha treaty.
For a few years, there existed a relative peace in the galaxy, but that was only due to a massive arms race occurring between the rival governments. However, one day, a Lukanian ambassador's space yacht was somehow destroyed, and the Lukanians blamed the Tylorians. (It was later revealed that the pilot was merely drunk, and crashed into an asteroid). The Tylorians responded by invading a Lukanian planet, Arcanis. The Lukanians quickly responded by sending in a fleet of Harbingers, and quickly retook the planet. They accused the Tylorians of violating the Alpha treaty and declared war on the Tylorians.
The war had begun.
