Chapter Two: History 2nd

What became the Continuum evolved over the course of billions of years. To understand it, you had to understand the exigencies in place in the culture that created it, its origins.

The people who created the Collective emerged from the waters of their home world, breathing oxygen, a planet now lost and forgotten, having been consumed by its parent star, before it in its turn collapsed into nothing.

Those ancient people reached beyond that tiny planet. They reached beyond that dim yellow sun, launching themselves into the starry fields.

They traversed the galaxy in fragile rockets, hitching rides on comets and asteroids without the hope of return.

That heroic race of people were explorers, discoverers scientists, and pioneers. They were endlessly optimistic, and eager for the challenges ahead of them.

They built colonies wherever they could. First in their own solar system, inhabiting every livable nook and cranny, on every planet and satellite within the reach of their star’s gravity, and its warming light.

They built cities in space, harvesting every thread of metal, from every rock within their reach before they moved out to the neighboring stars.

Travel was slow at first.

Generations of colonists would be born, live and die in the crossing.

This did not stop them.

They frequently met with tragedies; accidents, collisions, disease, starvation, these were as common among the interstellar colonists as it had been among their forebears when they were exploring their own world, crossing turbulent seas and unmapped coasts in fragile vessels made of wood.

Those first people were looking for every place they could, to establish a way point, a station, to set an anchor, to ease the crossing of those they knew were coming after them.
