The Flower Galaxy is a large, extremely flocculent spiral galaxy, similar in size to the Aylothn Galaxy. It is located just outside the Aylothn-Sagittaria Group, roughly ten million ly away from the Via Sagittaria Galaxy. The Flower Galaxy is known mostly for its rather large size, being the second largest galaxy in the Local Universe. The galaxy contains many life-forms, and is remarkably decentralized compared to its neighbors. The galaxy is controlled by hundreds of different empires and republics, a notable one being the Cnara-Frealee Federation, a K2.5 civilization near the galactic core.

This galaxy was named Flower Galaxy, superseding earlier designations from extragalactic civilizations, due to its pretty, flower-like shape. It is the home of 1.2 trillion stars, hundreds of billions of planets, and countless species of intelligent life. The galaxy is so fertile that almost one in thirty systems in the galaxy has at least one world with native life, making it one of the most life-filled galaxies in the universe, coming in second to Charybdis.
It was the home galaxy of the Providence Union, a vast empire covering most of the galaxy. It was destroyed by a hail of black hole bombs by a large band of rebels over a billion years ago. Its second largest satellite, the Lareas Galaxy, was also home to the ancient Lareas Alliance, the oldest known civilization in the local universe, which seemingly vanished off the map a little over seven billion years ago.
- Formation Era (13,100,000,000-11,800,000,000 BCE): This was when the Flower Galaxy and its satellites were forming. The galaxy and most of the rest of the universe was completely uninhabitable during this time, as there was an extreme overabundance of large stars that went supernova.
- Pre-Providence Union Era (11,800,000,000-2,400,000,000 BCE): In this era, many civilizations rose and fell, ranging from embryonic to almost type III. This is when the Lareas Alliance briefly conquered most of the Flower Galaxy, before it completely vanished off the map, leaving nothing but ruined dyson swarms.
- Providence Union Era (2,400,000,000-950,000,000 BCE): This is when the mid-type III Providence Union united the galaxy and has begun to colonize the satellites. Near the end of this era, hundreds of black hole bombs went off, utterly destroying most of the major systems. What was left was unable to pick up the pieces, and the Union collapsed. It is still unknown who triggered the bombs.
- Post-Providence Union Era (950,000,000-4,500,000 BCE): Not much happened in this era. The Lareas Galaxy passed close to the galactic disk, triggering a massive burst of star formation.
- Telusian Civilization Era (4,500,000-3,000,000 BCE): This is the era when the galaxy was under the control of the Telusian Civilization.
- Present Era (3,000,000 BCE-present day): The current era. This era is filled with the birth of hundreds of civilizations, from embryonic to late Kardashev II. One of the most powerful existing ones is the Cnara-Frealee Federation.

The Flower Galaxy contains hundreds of different civilizations, filling every galactic region and satellite galaxy (with the depressing exception of the Morid Galaxy) with life. As of the modern day, the political landscape within the galaxy itself is relatively peaceful, though this is certainly not the case for most of the satellites. The United Nations of the Flower Galaxy is presently the dominant power in the Flower Galaxy, as many of its member nations are superpowers in their own right.

The exact galactic geography of the Flower Galaxy has been hotly debated, as it was often decided rather arbitrarily by whatever nation was most powerful at the time. As a result, what defines a distinct region of the Flower Galaxy has changed time and time again, going from being based on distance from the core, to being based on spiral arms, to being based on how far above or below the disk you are.
Currently, the Flower Galaxy is composed of seven main regions as set by a committee of the United Nations of the Flower Galaxy, each with its own interesting set of cultures and species.
- Flower Core
- Frealee Arm
- Elerad Arm
- Charity Arm
- Paleas Arm
- Akris Arm
- Galactic Halo
- Rapier Ring
The Flower Core is the innermost region of the Flower Galaxy. Its borders span from The Heart of Providence to the edges of the galactic bulge. Because of this, this region is the most densely packed of any galactic region in this galaxy, with the average distance between non-gravitationally bound stars only reaching a third of a light-year, and a total star count estimated to be twenty billion stars, roughly a fifth of the galaxy's entire star count.
The layout of the Flower Core consists of an extremely dense cluster roughly five light-years across with over a thousand stars, many of them very massive and bright, surrounding The Heart of Providence. This cluster is nested within a less dense, but still quite dense cluster known as the Providence Cluster, composed of many old stars and old planets and is often called the Deep Core. This cluster does not have very many civilizations, and has a good deal of rogue planets with the many close encounters between stars over its long history. Across the bulge, many smaller clusters have formed, including the Cnara Cluster, the home of the planet Carlea and the Cnara-Frealee Federation.
During the Providence Union Era, most of the capital planets of the Providence Union were very densely populated and situated in the Flower Core, meaning that the majority of the resources produced by the galaxy were funneled into the core, leaving the majority of the galaxy, bar special exceptions, stricken with poverty, a fact which would eventually lead to their downfall. Though this practice was hated by even many in the core itself, it was maintained by the ruling elite of Revarea and other planets to their destruction roughly one and a half billion years ago.
The Heart of Providence fully formed around 13,000,000,000 BCE. After this, the first stars of the galaxy would begin to form throughout the remainder of the 12,000,000,000 BCEs. In the billions of years that followed, countless other stars, planets, and lifeforms would continue to come into being, forming many civilizations which have risen and fell over the galaxy's long history.
Countless species and civilizations have arisen in the Flower Core, most notably the Providence Union, which formed at the end of the Peony Wars and would go on to rule the entirety of the galaxy and portions of others for a time.
The Frealee Arm is the "first" arm and second officially recognized region of the Flower Galaxy, and is home to such notable planets as Darvikus, Saleas, and Astra. Its borders are defined as the spiral arm containing the Frealee System, which contains a large amount of gas, dust and star forming regions. It is the smallest region of Flower by star count, with roughly 14 billion stars.
Its layout is fairly compact when compared to the larger regions of the galaxy, with the average distance between stars spanning around one and a half light-years, causing the region to be inhabited by numerous clusters of gravitationally bound stars. Various civilizations have been founded within the borders of the Frealee Arm, with the most notable being the Economic Federation of Saleas, one of the founding members of the United Nations of the Flower Galaxy.
The Frealee Arm is divided into the Inner, Mid, and Outer Frealee Arm.
The Charity Arm is the second arm of the Flower Galaxy and third officially recognized region. It is home to many nations, including the Marakat Interstellar Union, Trezhath Republic, and more. The Charity Arm is not fully controlled by the UNFG, with many nations having refused to join it. The Charity Arm is notably stricken with poverty in many places, and the UNFG is working to fix this.
The population of the Charity Arm is notably quite spread out compared to the Frealee Arm and Flower Core, with less than a third of its population. It is not entirely known why this is.
The Charity Arm is notably home to The Grey Star, an anomalous region of space roughly the size of a K-type star under heavy study by the UNFG, located in the territory of the Trezhath Republic.
The Charity Arm is divided into the Inner, Mid, and Outer Charity Arm, with the Outer Charity Arm being mostly unexplored.
The Elerad Arm is the last arm of the Flower Galaxy and last dense region of the galaxy. The Elerad Arm is notably depopulated due to the Sagittarium Invasions in the 20000s CE, and only contains two major nations, the Free Nation of Garrea and Areial Union.
Some of the other nations of the UNFG are trying to recolonize the vast empty areas in the Elerad Arm, and this destruction is what gave most of the Flower Nations a distrust of humans, which is why they aren't under the thumb of the Confederacy of Borealis.
Today, some of the galactic disk globular clusters are controlled by Sagittarium to this day, and they have become significantly more peaceful, mostly just staying in their respective clusters. The UNFG is debating whether to oust these remaining colonies or just leave them there.
The Elerad Arm is split into the Inner Elerad and Outer Elerad Arms. The Outer Elerad Arm is, as far as anyone can tell, utterly lifeless, with no native civilizations.
The Paleas Arm is very distant arm of the Flower Galaxy, separating from the Elerad Arm, on the opposite side of the Flower Galaxy relative to the Akradax Galaxy and the main territory of the United Nations of the Flower Galaxy. It is controlled by several bickering nations with wildly differing philosophies. The region is currently in a spell of peace between the recurring periods of war. Tensions are high, and the peace talks are almost certainly going to break quite soon.
The Paleas Arm is controlled by nations including the Beltamar Union, the Zepharis Republic, the Eltor-Lathemir Commonwealth, and many others, with a complex web of alliances ensuring that every nation in the area is dragged into the furnace of war every time hostilities break out.
The Paleas Arm is split into four regions: The Inner, Mid, and Outer Paleas Arms, and the Paleas Flocculent Cloud. The Beltamar Union, the Zepharis Republic, and the Eltor-Lathemir Commonwealth are located here in the Flocculent Cloud. The main portion of the arm is mostly controlled by colonies from these nations.
The Akris Arm is the most distant and unexplored arm of the Flower Galaxy, breaking off from the Elerad Arm and extending to the furthest reaches of the halo. The Akris Arm is not very well-explored, with no known settlements in the region except the former location of Meral. The Akris Arm is the source of many strange broadcasts, and the UNFG is looking into this.
The Akris Arm is near the Lance Galaxy, and its largest nation, the Encalet Confederacy, is currently beginning to colonize its outer reaches. The Encalet Confederacy is currently training its telescopes at the arm, in an effort to determine the source of the broadcasts.
The Akris Arm is notably home to the Iriat Nebula, a nebula uniquely located outside the disk proper, the only large nebula in the galaxy like this. The Iriat Nebula is home to the Oralat Virtual Utopia, a reclusive civilization living on matrioshka brains around medium-sized stars hidden in the nebula. Despite its reclusiveness, the OVU is the only contacted nation native to the region.
The Galactic Halo is the sparsest region of the Flower Galaxy. It is not home to many nations, being controlled almost solely by the Kingdom of Saihera and the Pecay-Po Federation of Nalachi. It is the largest region of the galaxy in terms of volume, but its stars are very spread apart with average distances between stars being upwards of ten light-years. Because of this sparseness, this region is difficult to govern, and the two nations here have developed their own strategies for governing this region.
The Kingdom of Saihera is a very decentralized nation, with the King or Queen having very little power over the outer regions, while the PPFN remains holed up inside its dense globular cluster. It is unknown if these solutions will continue to work.
The Rapier Ring is an interesting region. It is composed of a stream of stars extending out from the Lance Galaxy, wrapping around the full width of the galactic disk twice. Some consider this region to be part of the Galactic Halo, or even part of the Lance Galaxy itself. The territory of the Encalet Confederacy, the largest nation in the Lance Galaxy, extends partways down the Ring, but the rest of it is mostly ungoverned, and is as such commonly a home for outlaws.
What is or is not a satellite galaxy is up for debate. The boundary between a satellite galaxy and an intergalactic overdensity or globular cluster is sometimes unclear. However, there are currently 23 officially recognized satellite galaxies surrounding the Flower Galaxy, at various distances.
The Myrmidan galaxy is the closest of the three major Flower Galaxy Satellites. Only containing approximately 700 million stars, Myrmidan only contains seven contacted intelligent species. It orbits at a very close proximity to the Flower Galaxy, and is in a polar orbit around it. Its orbit is slowly degrading, and it will likely soon collide with the galaxy, triggering a wave of star formation.
Currently, the Myrmidan Galaxy is controlled fully (except for a few footholds at the edges) by the reclusive Somnar Hive, a hive-mind empire which the entire UNFG is fighting against to buy time for the last free inhabitants of the galaxy to escape the galaxy.
The Lareas Galaxy is the most distant and second largest of the major satellites. The galaxy contains roughly ten billion stars, and interestingly has a higher colonization percentage than Myrmidan, even though it's more distant. It is a very active star former, and it has a large amount of large stars and nebulae. Lareas is currently split in three between the Republic of the Spider Nebula, the Union of Narenna, and the Kormin Empire, and the galaxy is ravaged with a war that has been ongoing for centuries.
The Lareas Galaxy used to be a lot closer in the distant past, and once even brushed past the Flower Galaxy, creating the life-filled Lareas Arm.
The Blossom Galaxy is a unique dwarf barred spiral galaxy orbiting the Flower Galaxy relatively distantly and the largest satellite of the Flower Galaxy. Its nations are members of the United Nations of the Flower Galaxy, and are highly militarized to defend against a possible NTIH attack, as any attack from them would have to go through the Blossom Galaxy.
The Blossom Galaxy is relatively sedate in most areas, with most stars being over a billion years old. This leads to a distinct lack of massive stars such as Wolf-Rayets. The galaxy is also of the "Grand Design" subtype, which means that its spiral arms are very well defined and beautiful, with the space between the arms almost as sparse as the halo.
The Akradax Galaxy is a medium-sized dwarf elliptical galaxy orbiting the Flower Galaxy. It is almost entirely controlled by the Akradax Collective, which is one of the more reclusive members of the UNFG, aside from a small PPFN colony. The Akradax Galaxy is full of megastructures, due to the Akradax Collective's focus on internal development.
The Akradax Galaxy is also home to the Akradax Molecular Cloud Complex, a large star-forming region surrounding the galactic core. This is unique for dwarf ellipticals, with the only other known structure like this located in the Suvaren Galaxy, almost ten million light-years distant. The nebula is being mined for gases and dust, to conserve resources which would otherwise be spread apart and lost.
The Lance Galaxy is a tiny galaxy orbiting very close to the Flower Galaxy's disk. It is being slowly ripped apart by the gravity of its parent galaxy, and is being stretched out into a vast ring. It only has two contacted civilizations, and its outer fringes are colonized by many nations of the UNFG. The Lance Galaxy has almost no young stars, and most of its stars have very low metal content. Because of this, terrestrial planets are relatively rare, which further decreases the likelihood of civilizations developing. The Lance Galaxy is home to many anomalies, including many dim Aroteon Stars, among other things. Some nations call it the Castrella Galaxy, for some reason. The faint stellar ring caused by the galaxy's stretching out has been colonized by the Kingdom of Saihera, as it passes through its heartlands.
The Lance Galaxy is nominally fully controlled by a native UNFG member nation known as the Encalet Confederacy, but the Confederacy is currently split between the current government and a nationalist anti-UNFG xenophobic group known as the Nationalist Liberation Front, working to violently split the Confederacy away from the UNFG.
They currently control roughly half the galaxy from their base at the hidden planet of Parvakel. Diplomatic officers from various other member nations of the UNFG are trying to calm this conflict down, but to no avail.
The Morid Galaxy is a small, dim blob of a galaxy in the outer reaches of the Flower Subgroup. It seems to have no intelligent species, and is littered with massive amounts of ruins, likely from an extinct civilization. The Morid Galaxy consists almost entirely of old, metal-poor stars, and is completely devoid of gas.
It is hypothesized that this extreme lack of gas, unparalleled in anything that isn't a globular cluster, was caused by a massive starburst formation where thousands of very high-mass stars formed at almost exactly the same time, causing the civilization living there at the time, the Moridian High Command, to be rapidly wiped out. The extreme amount of radiation coming from the short-lived stars also sterilized any and all potentially life-giving planets as the lack of gas precluded the formation of any new stars.
Discovered by renowned Carlean astronomer Onir Nellai, Nellai's object is a strange galaxy. It is absolutely miniscule, at just 850 light years across, but it contains around 123 million stars. Nellai's object is also a quasar, emitting high-energy radiation in two opposite directions. It is currently going through an intense starburst spree, forming at a rate of 430 stars every year. Nellai's object is intensely pink, with hints of blue, green and red across its strange filaments of gas, which almost resemble spiral arms. Over a million OB stars, over 30,000 Wolf-Rayet stars and over 1,000 aroteon stars have been documented in Nellai's object, and it is currently the most inhospitable known galaxy in the Flower Galaxy's systems. Fortunately, in around 20 million years, Nellai's object's starburst phase will end, but the "galaxy" will still be extremely dense and quite inhospitable. It is a distant subsatellite of the Blossom Galaxy.
There is only one documented habitable planet in the entire galaxy, located on the edges. Nakuvoas is the only colony in the entire galaxy, a barely habitable icy rogue planet, warmed only by the light of many stars light years away. Work is being done to put Nakuvoas in a stable orbit around a nearby star. Currently it is shared by the entire United Nations of the Flower Galaxy.
Notable Globular Clusters
🠊 Main article: Nalachi Cluster
The Nalachi Cluster is a major cluster above the galactic disk of the Flower Galaxy. It is controlled almost entirely by the Pecay-Po Federation of Nalachi, which also controls the sparsely populated galactic halo surrounding it.
Nalachi is an unusually large globular cluster, at 250 light-years in diameter. It is relatively densely packed, making it the largest and brightest globular cluster in the Flower Galaxy's neighborhood. Nalachi's center is occupied by a large black hole unimaginatively known as the Heart of Darkness. The Nalachi Cluster, other than this, contains many ancient artifacts from the ancient Pecay-Po Federation of Nalachi, which is a lot older than it looks.
🠊 Main article: Exurian Cluster
The Exurian Cluster is the largest globular cluster of the Myrmidan Galaxy. It is fully controlled by the Exurian Union, a nation closely allied with the United Nations of the Flower Galaxy, which has sent the vast majority of its military to help in the Ardaya Conflicts.
Exurian is a relatively large globular cluster, that is unusually dense in its inner parts. Because of this, most everyone outside it who discovered it assumed that it was much smaller than it actually is, because of this extreme density gradient. However, the Exurian Union is currently constructing a relatively small Birch Planet out of the inner stars of the cluster, to concentrate its population. The outer stars are being left alone, to serve as a destination for Project Alazar.
Maps of all satellites.
Formation Era (13,100,000,000-11,800,000,000 BCE):
The Flower Galaxy formed roughly 13.1 billion years ago, and the The Heart of Providence was created from a collapse of dust clouds in the deep core of the galaxy around this time as well. By 12.6 billion years ago, all of the satellites of the galaxy had formed. The galaxy was pretty much lifeless before 11.8 billion years ago, as supernovas were going off everywhere.
The first life appeared almost as soon as it could, estimated at 11.75 billion years ago. No one knows where, as no evidence survives from this time. Roughly a billion years after this, some civilizations probably formed, but as the galaxy was still fairly violent, they were probably wiped out fairly rapidly.
Pre-Providence Union Era (11,800,000,000-2,400,000,000 BCE):
Very little evidence survives from this era, although the largest civilizations which existed during this time period are discernible. During this era, the Lareas Alliance coalesced from several small warring states throughout the Lareas Galaxy. However, from these inauspicious beginnings, the Lareas Alliance became the largest civilization in the entire history of the local universe. The Lareas Alliance would conquer the entire region before coming across the planet Deralend. A scanner spacecraft arrived around the planet, tripping a sensor, and causing it to release a shockwave which wiped out all life in the Local Universe, but leaving all structures completely unaffected.
The Rifters arose pretty much as soon as any civilization could after this event and begun colonizing the Flower Galaxy. However, their civilization was destroyed by civil war, wreaking havoc throughout the entire galaxy and rendering the majority of the galaxy lifeless. After this occurred, many civilizations rose and fell, ranging from tiny type-0 civilizations to vast civilizations controlling a large portion of the galaxy. Because of the fertility of the Flower Galaxy, there are too many to list here.
Near the end of this era, several species arose in the deep core of the Flower Galaxy. They soon merged into a civilization which would go on to rule the galaxy, the Providence Union...
Providence Union Era (2,400,000,000-950,000,000 BCE):
The Providence Union is the era from the galaxy's past that we know most about, thanks to the Glanadi Archives, a vast archive of all the information known to the Providence Union. However, over the intervening years, the Glanadi Archives have decayed significantly, although much of their contents are still readable.
The Providence Union itself was founded shortly before the official start of the Providence Union Era. After their founding they rapidly expanded and conquered vast amounts of territory, becoming the first native civilization that is confirmed to have conquered a supermajority of the galactic disk. The Union went through many iterations, rising and falling, but each of them shared one defining feature: corruption. Much of the resources created by species across the Providence Union were funneled into the luxurious city-worlds of the deep core, leaving the vast majority of the territory of the Union in crushing poverty (with exactly one known exception, Suloom).
Because of this, a vast organized rebellion secretly constructed Penrose Spheres around every catalogued black hole in the territory of the union, but because of an error, the ones located in the galactic disk, intended to power a new regime after the fall of the Union, were never harvested, and instead exploded with the power of a hypernova. This was visible across the universe, and it killed off roughly 80 percent of all species located in the Flower Galaxy. This brought about the end of the Providence Union era.
Post-Providence Union Era (950,000,000-4,500,000 BCE):
The Post-Providence Union Era began with the death of uncounted numbers of people and a mass extinction across the galaxy the likes of which hadn't been seen since the Deralend Event. For the first fourth of the era, everyone in the galaxy was reeling from the catastrophic events of the Fall of the Providence Union, and no one really did much. Unbeknownst to all but the tiniest number of individuals, a tiny faction of the Providence Union, based on the moon of Derana, had survived, and were making plans to bring back the glory of the Providence Union, no matter the cost.
However, their plans were put on hold after an accident with the device protecting their base at Derana, which caused the planet to seemingly cease to exist to the outside world unless they wanted to bring it back into phase, broke, causing the planet to be trapped in an inescapable bubble "universe". Although these events only came to light very, very recently, when they managed to fix the device, they were much weakened, and their attempt to reconquer the Flower Galaxy failed catastrophically. Derana was not seen again until the modern era.
While the Derana Faction were trapped, civilizations rose and fell similiarly to the Pre-Providence Union Era, and nothing very notable or interesting happened. However, when the Faction escaped back into this universe, they probably would have reconquered the galaxy if it weren't for an unheard-of alliance between all civilizations in the galaxy except just a few to fight back the Derana Faction. As it was trapped, Derana and a bunch of unlucky ring particles formerly orbiting Derana's parent planet were heavily mined, creating the largest confirmed singular fleet in galactic history. If it weren't for this alliance, the galaxy would have fallen.
The Era came to an end with the invasion of the Telusian Civilization, wreaking havoc and killing off quadrillions of people.
Telusian Civilization Era (4,500,000-3,000,000 BCE):
The Telusian Civilization's invasion began roughly 4.5 million years ago, with the conquering of the reaches of the Outer Frealee Arm. This was mostly claimed by the precursors of the Varkas Tribes, a nomadic alliance of small nations which were completely unprepared for war. When the Telusian war machine showed up at the edge of their territory, some of them chose to fight, inflicting relatively large amounts of damage before being wiped out. Most, however, chose to run. However, their territory was mostly surrounded by nations which they regularly raided, and as such they were not let in except for a group of just five of their total count of millions of worldships sneaking through interstellar space.
This defeat was disastrous to all the nations of the flower galaxy, as the destruction of the powerful Varkas Tribes left the remainder of the Frealee Arm vulnerable to attack. The Telusian Civilization steamrolled through that half of the galaxy, selling entire nations' populations into slavery. They seemed to be well on their way to conquering the entire galaxy.
Conquering stalled as the Melkas Empire, a powerful controlling a large, barren portion of the galaxy, began carrying out guerrilla raids in the conquered territory. This made the Telusians turn their attentions away from the front, allowing the Empire to retake a large portion of the galactic core. Unfortunately, a Telusian expedition assassinated the royal family of the Empire, causing it to fall into disarray. After this, the Telusian Civilization fully conquered the galaxy.
<IDK, something goes here>
During this time of relative peace, however, the seeds of destruction were sown. The governors of the various territories were becoming ever more unpopular, and a large-scale revolt began. After years of fighting and quadrillions of deaths, most of the territories were no longer under Telusian control. Unfortunately, that meant no one controlled them, and the galaxy descended into chaos.
