The ancient people moved away from the world on which they born. Its star was dying, and their planet in time would be swallowed in its explosive collapse.
They reached out to the nearest colonies, took command of them, and harnessed all of their resources to construct the framework that became the Central Planet, the HomeWorld of the Collective and later the Continuum.
The constructed their artificial world around the body of a singularity, the black hole that became the hungry heart of the artificial world. The raw materials of a thousand star systems were harvested to build the great structure.
In the shadow of that singularity the Collective was formed, and it gave birth to the Continuum.
The entire population of the those ancient people slowly migrated into the quantum field that became the basis for this great society,
As they conversion of consciousness was complete, they began to take an interest in the worlds their ancestors had founded throughout the galaxy.
Over the course of billions of years, a million worlds were populated by the Children of the Ancient, even as those who ultimately formed the Collective and its Continuum were harnessing the power of the black hole and coming into being.
The speed at which star ships travel between star systems became impossibly fast, allowing them to establish an organization beyond the scope of anything that had been imagined by their ancestors.
They fabricated the structures that would unite them, bringing them all together in one galactic entity. They established the foundations of an Empire, and began to track all of the missions that had been ever launched by their forbears, slowly bringing each of them into the fold.
