Faster than Light
"The history of the technological advancement of the human race is riddled with political manipulation and massive sociological misunderstanding that may cost us the stars"...Francisco Omoxomo
The last decades of the Terran twentieth century showed technological spin offs of space exploration, created many new industries and added fantastic amounts of new technology. Most people of the time failed to realize that the comfort and security of their lives was closely related to the continued development of space technologies. In economic moves to better faltering economies, the space programs of the free world began to be strangled by budget cuts and politicians who thought the money better spent on pay raises and short-sighted social programs that failed to solve the real economic problems of the day. History shows us that the technology was there to alleviate the problems. It is unfortunate that big business was so short sighted and that the population did not know what the real issues of the day were. As the nuclear industries folded because of protest secretly backed by by petroleum interests, the fate of the economies was sealed into a downswing to disaster.
Finally, a minor electronic blunder in the Soviet Union's computerized defense system triggered a conflict that left most of Europe and the Middle East in ruins. The following depression of the Lawless Years and the collapse of centralized governments taught the survivors that the world was too small a place for haphazard planning and political stupidity.
It may be considered ironic that the forces to pull together and rebuild the world were not the governments or military, but the remaining corporations. The new corporate governments, thus formed,began to rebuild the technologies that favored their survival. Soon the old launch sites were active again as space became a necessity.
But history tends to repeat itself when the frontiers are measured in light-years. Special interests, corporate corruption and political stupidity begin to rise again from the ashes of history unlearned.

FTL 2448

The year 2448 is a time of many opposites; A time of wealth and harsh colonial life, and of corporate honesty and industrial terrorism. Alien in many forms are joining man for his ideals.
It is the new age of the independent starship and the crews who run them.
WELCOME to 2448

It's not glamorous, but it's ours.
