Anarchy on the Edge
The Scepter of Exploration
A relic from a previous era of humanity’s foray’s into space travel, the Scepter of Exploration is one of the first attempts at mass colonization of the stars. The Scepter and other ‘seed’ ships of its time were deployed from core worlds traveling at faster than light speeds to distant systems to provide the first colonies in sectors of space that humanity didn’t have the ability to reach through normal means.
Though mostly successful in their objective as the primary mode of fringe space human colonization, the seed-ships were quickly overtaken once the advent of warp gate technology enabled non-fully self sustaining space ships to travel the vast distances a seed-ship could travel in a fraction of the time. Despite being rendered obsolete in one fell swoop by the discovery of warp technology, The Scepter of Exploration continued it’s mission before finally coming to rest in what would later be dubbed the Actavia system where it has been re-purposed as the major space station hub that orbits the gas giant – Actavia 3.
