Category:First Galactic Senate Era
The First Galactic Senate started when Arkarnas sought to unite the galaxy under a common government. In a charge lead by Supreme Senator Etch Thio, Arkarnas would conquer smaller regions of space consisting of scattered tribes and roving space pirates - remnants of the previous Omni Empire that had survived the genocide by the Buyuk Empire 40,000 years before. Over the course of the next few decades, Arkarnas forged alliances with other species and built a dominating presence in the North Arm. These alliances became the foundation of the First Galactic Senate, or as it was then known - the Galactic Senate.
Up until this point, the Buyuk Empire had remained dormant as the supercomputer AI INFRA continued to find ways to repair the damage to LUCIS's servers. However, in a surprise attack by Arkarnas, the Buyuk Empire was caught off guard. Under the rule of Supreme Senator Etch Thio, Arkarnas had intended to destroy the Buyuk Empire ever since previous diplomacy attempts with them had failed. After hundreds of years of conflict, the war between Arkarnas and the Buyuk Empire ended in a stalemate. An indefinite armistice was signed as the Buyuk Empire withdrew once more while the Galactic Senate continued to expand.
After many years of prosperity, it became more and more obvious that the Galactic Senate was becoming corrupt. The murder of Senator Etch lead to an event known as the First Galactic War leading to the division of the Senate into multiple factions. While the conflict was eventually resolved, Arkarnas were removed as members of the Senate by the other species. This proved to be beneficial for Arkarnas as it was a chance for them to wait out the civil wars without getting involved.
Peace would not last. As an attempt at a gesture of good will, Arkarnas offered a new type of jump gate technology to the Heglarean Empire - one of the prominent members of the first senate. Under mysterious circumstances, the jump gate exploded which destroyed the Heglarean home system. It was not known why the jump gate malfunctioned, but Arkarnas was quick to be blamed thus leading to the reigniting of conflicts in the form of the Second Galactic War. Relations were at their worst.
To combat the Senate, Arkarnas commissioned a new type of supersoldier known as the Genodraco which was based off the prototype ELICAN soldiers created several thousand years before. To counter the threat, one Senate faction known as the Hunre Empire created a nanovirus based off of Buyuk technology. The two clashing superweapons left both sides in ruin.
With the destruction of the First Galactic Senate, the Buyuk Empire saw an opportunity to expand once more. With virtually no one opposing them for the next few centuries, they would begin their conquest of the Crucible Galaxy in order to prepare for the inevitable arrival of LUCIS.
