The Avana Galaxy is known for being located on the edges of influence from the Lewis Nations. It was the subjected to settlement by this Human nations. About a quarter of the Avana Galaxy is currently under the Lewis Nation's control, that is mostly under Humans.

The location of the Avana Galaxy is close to Herschel Space and the Florathel Galaxy. This has allowed Avana to become a mid bridge of travel and communications between this two regions of the known universe. This galaxy is also notable for being the birth place of the ancient Telusian Civilization and the later Axon Civilization. It is known too as the home of Reversers.

History

Formation

The Avana Galaxy formed at the same time as its neighbors, roughly 6.5 billion years ago, likely from the collision of several irregular galaxies. All of its satellites formed at the same time.

Verelas Era

  • 10 million BCE - 9 million BCE

The tentatively named Verelas Civilization, after arising on the planet Verelas just over six billion years ago, took advantage of the dearth of intelligent species and rapidly conquered the galaxy. However, they fell into civil war, wiping out the nation and much of the life in the galaxy.

Not much is known about the period between the Fall of Verelas and the modern era, although many civilizations rose and fell in this time.

S'aka Era

  • 7.2 million BCE - 6 million BCE

It is believed that the S'aka arrived in the galaxy and found it very sparsely populated with life. This made their presence and colonization to be very low-scale and barely colonized much worlds. However, they seem to have taken with them in their "Ascendancy" some of the early primitive life forms that were apparently rising. Some experts believed that they found the Avana empty of life and regarded Avana as an obscure place. Not much is known of their presence as most of their records are scarsed and located in the frontiers. Most of the rest comes from the Telusians. They also recorded low S'aka presence, but it is unknown to what extend this accounts can be trusted.

The Lost Era

  • 6 million to 4.5 million BCE

Taken from 9 billion BCE to 4.5 million BCE, not much is known from what happened in between the End of the Verelas and the start of the Telusians. Most of the fossil record seems to have already been erased or dig up by the Telusians. For some unknown reasons they left the Verelas and the Lareas remains and fossils but erase the other ones. Small fragments have appeared here and there but no sign of big civilizations seem to have occur in this time. It is believed that due to the large damage of the Verelas who wiped out life from the galaxy, it is believe that intelligent life took this long to recover from their damage. It seems those million years in between the eras were needed for life to emerge, evolve and give rise to the Yejinki and the Telusians. It is also surprising that during the telusian era, intelligent life seem to have been rarer than in other eras.

Telusian Era

  • 4.5 million BCE to 3.5 million BCE

Around 4.5 million BCE, a new species arose in the planet known as Maka'bi in their later unified language, but as Telusia for modern humans. Their homeworld was on the outskirts of the Avana and had miraculously survive much of the wars and destruction of life on the galaxy on the million years prior to them. This help life in Telusia recover faster and developped intelligent life. The native species, the Telusians or Obi'ka, managed to colonized vast areas of their home galaxy, conquering minor scarced intelligent life one after the other and putting them into slavery. They seemed to be no match for them in terms of technological advancement. However, on the other side of Avana, another civilization was growing in prominence and glory: The Yejinki.

They were pacifists, very different to the Obi'ka who had a brutal warrior culture. This led to clashes for power among the two superpowers of the Avana Galaxy at the time. This finally led to a war that endured for many millennia until the Yejinki fell and were enslaved by the Obi'ka. This meant that they had achieved total control of their homegalaxy by the the end of 4.2 million BCE and led to the formation of the Telusian Empire.

Once achieving total control of the Galaxy, the Obi'ka/Telusians ruled as masters of the Galaxy, exploiting it. It was then that they discovered means of travel to other Galaxies and reinforced them. This allowed them to travel to Florathel and Kevenam as well as Rodaun. The period between 4.2 and 3.9 million BCE, the golden era of the Telusians took place as large settlement in other Galaxies as well as successful conquering campaigns in nearby galaxies began, expanding the Empire to become an Intergalactic Empire.

However between 3.9 million BCE and 3.6 million BCE, the Empire began to face internal problems and stagnation. This led to internal wars, changes of ruling dynasties, rebelions and the cleargy was becoming more and more powerful as religion was the only main true tool that tied together the vastity of the empire.

In 3.6 million BCE the decline of the Telusian civilization began. Massive wars, epidemics, revolutions and revolts, greedy nobles and priests, etc led to Chaos within the Empire which led to 1 million years of massive decay. The previous empire became several minor states which were weak and the numbers of Obi'ka dwingle massively due to the crumbling of their society, wars, sickness, etc.. Finally most of the Telusians had gone except for some few millions who built massive colonial ships and eemigrated massively to the Zudya Galaxy in very primitive means. Use of some important technologies was lost but conservation of settlers was safe but massive travel through the void could not be fast. This led to "The long journey" to Zudya which took 2.5 million years. The Telusians had disappeared by 3.5 million BCE from Avana and the current Herschel Space.

Inter-civilization Era

  • 3.5 million BCE - 3 million BCE

This period lasted for only 600 000 to 500 000 years. It is marked by the destruction of the Obi'ka and the Civilization knwon as the Telusian civilizations. Most of the only Obi'ka left in the galaxy had devolved and most of the worlds were greatly damaged by conflicts. This led to the isolation of many species, the abandonement of old technologies etc... Among them were the precursors of the Axons. The absence of life and intelligent life, gave rise to a period of almost no-known major civilizations during this time.

Axon Era

  • 3 million BCE to 2.1 million BCE

The Axon civilizationarose from the ashes of the fallen Telusian civilization in the Kevenam Galaxy about 3 million BCE, that is about 600 000-500 000 years after the end of "The Great Chaos" of the Telusians where all Telusians had died off and their civilization gone into ruins. They began their humble origins as "probably" the primitive remains of one of the old enslaved species of the Telusians but this is only speculation. The Axons devellopped into unification on their planet achieving advancement and space colonization of their nearby area by the 2.85 million BCE. They had a very "mechanical" drive, which made them increasingly interested in the far more advance old Telusian artifacts. Some time between 2.85 and 2.65 million years BCE, the Oxana Wars took place against an IA. They came up victorious and later went on to held control of most of the Avana by 2.6 million BCE starting their golden age. They avoided most of the alien species their encounter.

The period between 2.6 million and 2.1 million saw the Golden Age of the Axons. They expanded further on the Avana Galaxy taking de facto control of it. They civilization was rebuilt after the Oxana Wars, and their society also changed significantly. Experts called this as "New Axons" and the others as "Old Axons" in informal talks. They became less mechanic but relied more on artificial reproduction and switch to more "spiritual" approach to existence.

Nevertheless, their end became abrupt when by 2.1 million BCE, the Kerox sickness was uncovered. During the following million years the sickness spread all across the Axons and made the Axons go almost extinct and their civilization crumble to ash by 2 million BCE. Those who survived confinement in their worlds regressed to a primitive stage, and became species of their own, completely cut off form their glorious past. Some of their modern descendant species are the Asons in the Avana Galaxy, and the Yakons in the Kevenam Galaxy for example.

First Recovery Era

  • 2 million BCE - 1 million BCE

Some put the end of the period in 850 000 BCE when the Huku achieved interstellar travel. This period saw the rise of several small and short-lived species. It is unclear their origin, but it seems they were the last non-Axons or remanents of the Axons (devolved Axons) to exist trying to take hold back to their former technology.

Huku Era

  • 950 000 BCE - 105 000 BCE

The civilization of the Huku arose somewhere between 1 million BCE and 950 000 BCE as a primitive species. Around 940 000 BCE or so, they initiated agriculture and the bricks for new civilization in their homeworld began. It wasnt until 850 000 that they did not reach space colonization and it took them till 800 000 to expand beyond their home system. In 710 000 they recovered the first Axon artifacts but it took them over 10 000 years, till 700 000 BCE to understand the true extend and importance of the Axons. Being obssess by the Axons, they further study them. By 620 000 BCE they also discovered the Telusians.

By 500 000 BCE they had achieved colonization of over a third of the Avana Galaxy. In this period they discovered in a bunker made by the Axons the artifact known as Oxana, who had stayed dormant for over around 1.5 million years. Oxana was made to protect the Axons, and thus tried to "enslaved" them to protect them better. When the Axons declared war, Oxana to guarantee her own survival made a safekeeping place to lay a copy of itself to rest. Sadly, the Huku discovered Oxana and awoke her. Sadly, she understood the Huku as a threat to the Axons, or even the ones to blame for her maker's extinction. Due to that, she battled the Huku causing the Huku-Oxana War which ended in 350 000 BCE with the total destruction of Oxana. This had led to most of their colonized territory to dwingled to a quarter of the Galaxy and most of the next 100 000 years spent on rebuilding their former civilization and expand over long lost worlds. In 250 000 BCE they had reached again the original Third of the Galaxy under their wing.

In 206 000 BCE, about 150 000 years after defeating Oxana, they unleashed the dormant Kerox, which Oxana had guarded as a secret weapon. It spread quickly and the Huku had to battle this treat for the remaining 100 000 years. Their number dwingled quickly and they could not contain the sickness from being spread. Slowly but steadly, their numbers diminished and their civilization collapsed. In 130 000 BCE, most of the Huku were divided among small tiny nations battling each other constantly for supremacy and survival. In 105 000 BCE, the Huku had gone extinct, it's civilization smashed by the Kerox sickness just like the Axons. Some survivors of the Huku are believed to have resisted regresing to primitive and highly isolated stages of civilization: the U'uumu. This species is believed to be the descendants and evolved versions of the Huku. The U'uumu re-emerged again to expand into the stars by the late 45 000 CE (about 150 000 years after the fall of their ancestors).

Second-Recovery Era

  • 105 000 BCE - 50 000 BCE

It's a period between 105 000 BCE and 50 000 CE, comprising about 155 000 years. This period saw no major civilization to prosper like the Telusians, Axons and Huku had done before, but some of the species left as primitives by those civilizations began a process of evolution and emergence back into space-fearing species and nations.

In 10 000 CE is when we have the first glance of evolution is seen by primitive species like the Yakons. Other also arose, later on. By 25 000 BCE we saw the rise of the and by 45 000 BCE the U'uumu became a spacefearing species. It wasnt till 50 000 BCE that the first Krizik and Aldorian expeditions began to explore the Galaxy ending this Era.

Modern Human Era/ Extra-Galactic Era

  • 50 000 CE - Present

This period is estimated aroun 50 000 CE to the Present (100 000 CE). It is marked by the arrival of civilizations from other Galaxies, like Krizik, Aldorians and most notably Humans. In 50 000 CE the first Aldorians explored the Galaxy and by 69 000 CE they had already begin settling on it. The Krizik arrived in 67 000 BCE and settled for the first time in 72 000 BCE.

Humans arrived later, by 74 033 CE, some probes were launch by Federal forces into the Galaxy and by 76 001 CE, so did the Union. The Empire also launched some probes in 76 762 CE. Still, it wasn't until 76 821 CE that the first manned mission was sent by the Federation. Soon after, the Empire hastily sent its own manned mission. The Federation sent a mission and colonized the Planet Ulfilas. Soon after, Taukan was colonized by the Empire to control travel routes and potential spots, but Imperial presence remained small. The Union also sent a mission and colonized Hathor.

As far as today, about more than a third of the Galaxy is in hands of the Extra-Galactic species.

Species

Native

  • U'uumu

Are a species that have evolved substantially and live on a sector within the Avana Galaxy. They have good relations with their foreign invaders. Most notably with the Federation and the United Alliance who has an embassy world in their territory, their only planet in the Avana Galaxy. It serves as an embassy not only for U'uumu but to other Human and Alien nations in the Galaxy

  • Peiko

Are a species living in the galaxy in a process of expanding. They cant inhabit planets with oxygen, so they live in planets with large amounts of other gases. They are similar to Birds. Their homeworld is Eik. They are highly autocratic and have a somehow socialistic behaviour.

  • Kenedes

Are a species on a primitive stage, believed to have been in another time similar to the Peiko but invaded by either the Telusian or the Axons and made slaves. Some survived although it isn't clear if the planet they inhabit currently is their homeworld or if they were transported and survived the cataclysm that destroyed their invaders civilization, being them the only species that survived. They are under protection of the Intergalactic Federation who has preserved them in Kenen, their planet.

Extragalactic

  • Asons

Remainers of the Axon civilization after collapse. Some Axons, cut off from their civilization, have evolved to become the current Asons, which are similar but not alike to their former ancestors. They have preserved a corrupted version of their previous name. They have evolved to some early space nation, with some colonies. They remain closed for the most part and in their sector. They havent colonized more than a dozen systems.

Coming from a different Cluster, most humans settled the Avana Galaxy rather than others. The vast majority come from the Intergalactic Federation and the Union. The Empire has a small presence in the Galaxy, mostly in the outside branches of the Galaxy, being Taukan is mayor world. The United Alliance presence is really minimal, with only possession of one embassy planet, Okiva, in the Galaxy

They remained on the fringes of the Galaxy. The first Krizik came from the nearby Herschel Space, most notable through Rodaun Galaxy, right after they discovered ancient Telusian portals that comunicated with the world of Ne'koba in Telusian, modern Hirki. From there, they settled the Avana Galaxy. Here, although smaller in size to other species. They have settled a very secluded sector of this Galaxy, known informaly as "The Krizik Avana Cluster". Most of the worlds in this region belong to the Krizik Stratocracy.

They have also some little presence. Most of them belong to the Aldorian Dominium or the Aldorian Confederacy and are thus peaceful for Federal forces and others. Some Aldorians also live in the United Alliance Embassy world of Okiva.

Civilizations

The Galaxy was inhabited in the Past by the Axon Civilization who colonized it. Previous to the Axon's, it was the home galaxy of the warrior like Telusian Civilization, thanks to whom the entire cluster got its name, due to its importance and size. The Axons and the Telusians were not contemporaries. Telusian artifacts were highly considered by the Axons. Their home planet and Capital, Telusia, is nowadays a planet of the Federation. The Telusian Civilization did not named itself at such, it was humans who gave them the same name of their Homeplanet and Capital after its human name. They called themselves Obi'ka and their Capital and homeworld was known as Maka'bi. Still, they are mostly known as Telusians by Humans and other species. Telusia remains the capital of the Cluster and the sector, even though it has not the biggest population of the Cluster nor is the most relevant. That is, for the Federation.
