1. HISTORY BRIEFING
***********************
Kharak, the desert planet. An hell where only the poles are barely suited for living. Your race, the Kushans, have always lived here. From the ancient days the social structure is unchanged, divided into families, the Kiiths, but after 1106, when a mis-positioned satellite discovered a large metal formation in the Great Desert, the whole planet life has changed. In 1110 an expedition found the Khar-Toba, the First City, formed around an ancient starship, buried under the sands. In 1112, technicians were able to study and replicate the complicate technology that formed the starship's drive; most thought that Khar-Toba offered all it had to offer, until a young archeologist found a large piece of black stone with an interstellar map and a word, Hiigara, "our home". Since then, all efforts of the Kushan race were focused in building a massive starship, using the same hyperspace technology found in the Khar-Toba, to explore the space and reach the homeworld. This starship, later renamed MotherShip, was built in 55 years: 20 to collect all resources from the outer space, 10 to realize a giant Scaffold and 25 to actually build the MotherShip. The MotherShip has a living core, Karan Sjet, a scientist that voluntereed to become the center of the whole MotherShip's fleet after having perfectioned the technology that now traps her. The MotherShip also contains several thousands of colonists in cryogenic hybernation, a series of factories to build other ships and spare parts in order to maintain the MotherShip always functional. Hi-tech weaponries have been included for defense purpose, in case of unknown threats attack the MotherShip. It's 1214. The MotherShip is ready start its journey.
