20 Light Years beyond the Treecuu Volume
Along with many others, a large fleet of armed Galactyan exploratory vessels had been sent to uncharted areas of the Sector, beyond the known nations, to explore new volumes of space and discover new nations. So far, the expedition had discovered Alvira, a young nation in the Sector’s extreme west beyond Ferristia, and had brought forward Galactya’s first actual diplomatic relations with the Treecuu Star Empire, that for years had remained a mystery, despite being one of the Empire’s closest neighbors.
This fleet of vessels in particular was comprised of 20 Casfort Class vessels, each one spherical and 2.5 kilometers in diameter. After crossing the Zelvan Regime’s territories in Rainbowspace to avoid a diplomatic incident, an armed response or even worse, the breakout of a war (which, funnily enough, would come regardless some decades later), the exploratory fleet had reached a new, uncharted volume of space.
There they explored dozens of systems, sending probes and drones to scan and investigate stars, planets, moons and asteroids. Some swarms of droids were even left in the systems to build signalling stations, that would be able to highlight the already explored systems in new waves of exploration, as well as mark them for future colonization.
After exploring a binary red dwarf-brown dwarf system, the fleet entered Rainbowspace and again warped to it’s next destination.
