Project Alazar is an ongoing project to get as many Myrmidan species into the Ardaya System as possible, then construct a Caplan Thruster to propel the whole system out of the galaxy, to escape the Somnar Hive. This initiative is supported by many species across the Flower Subcluster.
Project Alazar is named after the cunning Perathri general Alazar the Great, known for his strategic retreats which made his enemies underestimate him.
The Somnar Hive has almost finished conquering the entire Myrmidan Galaxy, and many species have been forced to completely abandon their home systems. Every species has been constructing methods to leave the galaxy entirely, which has been helped along by many of the most powerful nations in the Flower Galaxy region.
The first phase of the project involved evacuating species from systems directly on the front to safer systems, or even placing them on gas giants equipped with fusion torches to propel them directly to the Rendezvous point at the Exurian Globular Cluster to meet up with the stragglers.
The second phase involved setting up vast laser arrays to send signals to every known civilization within range, including the Exurian Collective, the Oralat Virtual Utopia in the Iriat Galaxy, the three warring nations in the Lareas Galaxy, and many others. Most of these rapidly sent help, which was integral to the third phase.
The third phase involved those civilizations with FTL setting up a very, very wide hyperlane between the current location of the Ardaya System and the rendezvous point. The fusion torch gas giants launched during Phase One would enter this hyperlane and speed towards the rendezvous point.
The fourth phase is currently in progress, and involves moving all remaining species into the Ardaya System and constructing a Caplan Thruster over the star to propel it onto the hyperlane to escape. The Caplan Thruster will be constructed using materials from the systems being abandoned, due to its resource intensiveness.
The fifth phase concludes the main portion of the project and involves the fusion torch gas giants meeting the Ardaya System at the rendezvous point and sending out probes to explore the surrounding space to find new habitable or easily terraformable homeworlds for the passengers of the systems. Once these new worlds are found they will be terraformed and settled by the species who claimed them.
The Rendezvous Point
The Rendezvous Point is a strategically chosen system at the near edge of the Exurian Cluster, with one planet and a thick asteroid belt. After its journey through intergalactic space, the Ardaya System would park roughly a third of a light-year away from the star, and begin setting up stations on nearby oort cloud comets.
The system chosen has one rather interesting gas planet, at roughly 8 superplanetary masses it contains most of the mass in the system. It has eight major moons, two of which may be terraformable for some of the refugee species.
If somehow the way is blocked, The Ardaya System and all of the fusion torch gas giants changing direction to another, backup system, located on the fringes of the Iriat Galaxy. This system is in Marakat Interstellar Union territory, and special arrangements were made for this system and its surroundings for it not to be colonized if the backup plan is needed.
