Some quick background info on stuff, could help when creating a character, feel free to add your own stuff to your own characters.
Sirria: A large cluster of planets towards the northern side of the galaxy, Sirria is known for it's wealth of resources and the brilliance of it's scientists, unfortunetly it is not a major military power, it's army is small, with very effective weaponry. They are among the leaders in this crusade for an intergalactic government, most of the ambassadors on the ship are extreamly important officials. Because of the lack of military prowess, their system has become a constant target for pirate raids, they join the government in a bid for protection. For the protection of the first Galactic Army they offer scientific advancement, and almost unlimited resources. The security personal carry low grade combat armor, and stun pistols, and rods, they are not trained to kill only to subdue. It's race is basicly humans by a diffrent name.
the first Galactic Army: Raising an army is time consuming buisness, and is not possible in these chaotic times. The members of the first galactic army are less of an army then a group of mercenaries, joining because of their support of this new 'government' or being pressed into service by their worlds, to help aid their home systems bid for power in the new order. They are almost all fully trained in the styles of combat unique to their home, and carry a bewildering array of weapons, from custom made combat spears to ancient blasters.
The Saerken: The planet of Saeria was a lush and fertile world, and they were one of the first races to discover intersteller travel. Unfortunetly the image of the quiet peaceful Saeria is a figment of the past. The first outsiders they came into contact with was the Sirrions, and after initial wariness the two cultures quickly became allies.
The twin civilizations enjoyed a golden age of peace, it all came crashing down with a single Sirrion scientist, his name long forgotten.
His creations were so valued by the people of Saeria he was givin a gift, the planets only moon, it's name has been lost, on the moon he locked himself away working manically on some scientific advancement for the good of both peoples. This was a lie, it was a good thing for the Sirrions only, he viewed the Saerken race with hatred and xenophobic disgust, so he planned to rid the galaxy of them, once and for all. What exactly he did is unknown, a terrible mystery, all that is known is that the small moon disapeared from the Sarien sky, and the planet was deserted, once a paradise, now a desert wasteland.
The scientists efforts were in vain, a cry arose from the peoples of Sirria, the man was hearled as a villain, not the hero he dreamed, he was banished from his homeworld into the endless depths of space, where no life dwelt, or so they thought. The Saerken race continued, but only a fraction survived, those living on huge mining rigs, tall crimson spire like structures floating in space, they became bases, capital ships for a fleet of pirate vessels, ever since the name "Saerken has become synonymous with space pirate. Their crimson armored bullet shaped vessels speed through space, attacking without discression, they are now only feared and hated.
The Saerken raider is covered head to two with bright crimson body armor, usless at stopping lasers, but quite effective at scaring non-saerken. Their weaponry consists mainly of a single "Shredder" a vicious Saerken weapon firing long jagged bolts of yellow-green light, that literaly rip targets to shreds, most armor is ineffective against them, the Saerken favor power to accuracy, they also all carry a Saerken combat knife. From their earlies history, they fought with knives, learning to weild one from a young age it is still apart of their arsenal, they carry it with deadly strength and precision. The standard Saerken has leathery green skin and a slit like nose, with pale green eyes that see well in the dark. Besides that they vaugely resemble Sirrions (humans)
Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?
