|2.39 August 15, 2229 CE - Outer Colonies form Farstars
|August 15, 2229 CE: Sick of being preyed upon by the pirates and not receiving protection from the UGTO, the outer colonies call a meeting on the world Exathra. Exathra had long been considered a sort of de-facto ruling center for the outer colonies, due to it’s high habitability, and because it formed one end of the Colonial-Sol trade route. They decide to create a mutual defense pact, named the Farstars. Each world would come to the aid of its neighbors in a crisis, and would share with each other any important discoveries that are made. This alliance is very informal, with most of it created verbally. One of the most important practices instituted by the Farstars is the capturing and recommissioning of pirate vessels. This allows the Farstars fleet to grow rapidly, even if it’s not of the best quality.
