Description


A major colonization effort conducted by the United Galactic Confederacy with one goal in mind: To discover new planets on the galactic frontier.

New planets can mean various things for many individuals and groups of people. Ultimately, however, the discovery of planets mean universal advancement for the U.G.C. This progressive advance is motivated by many factors, including, but not limited to: trade and commerce agreements, political power, military expansion, colonization and population control, knowledge in the sciences and technology, tourism, and religious missions and pilgrimages.

"First Contact" is a term used for U.G.C.'s official touchdown on a previously undiscovered planet. Each major planet rush takes place every one to two centuries, at most, and a majority of First Contact planetary societies usually integrate with the U.G.C. in that time span. The planet rush events include the use of interstellar spacecraft and warp tunnels as the primary means of travel.
