Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
The T’burad Expanse occupies a great many sectors of space, reaching almost all the way out to the rim of the galaxy. The eastern half of this vast area of space is under the control of the Eagan Imperial Republic.
The Eagan are a humanoid race, very similar in feature to Humans. Their gray skin, black eyes and blue hair do differentiate them, however. They come from the second planet in the Sigma Rulan star system, virtually at the heart of their Empire. They have expanded to inhabit and control every planet in their system, and have hundreds of colonies in outlying systems. A little over a thousand years ago, the Eagan burst forth from their homeworld on a mission of exploration within their own star system. Two hundred years later, they finally left their overpopulated system in search of suitable systems to settle and provide much needed resources. For the next hundred years the Eagan easily conquered their neighbors. A third of them were totally wiped out while the rest became subject worlds, providing annual tithes to the Eagan. Once those planets had been stripped bare, the inhabitants were shipped off to work as slaves on new planets the Eagan had conquered in the meantime. The Empire kept on growing until the Eagan had conquered or colonized over 500 worlds.
At this point, two hundred years ago, the Empire was spreading faster than it should have. The Eagan had moved coreward and encountered the Chon Empire. At the same time, several enslaved races, independent of one another, attempted to fight back and regain their freedom. After 50 years the Eagan were forced to sign a ceasefire with the Chon in order to better focus on their internal struggles. After twenty years of rebellion, the Empire was once again at peace. It did not last for long.
Less than a year later, an aggressor race from the Gamma Quadrant tried to invade the Eagan Republic. Calling themselves the Esidran, they battled the Eagan for the next 30 years until they were pushed back. Political infighting within the Esidran government simply cancelled the war one day; and though the Eagan would normally have taken the opportunity invade their enemy and crush them to dust, cooler heads in the Eagan government prevailed and brought to light their desperate situation. Their military was almost gone, and their resources were virtually depleted. It was time to fall back and regroup.
It has been another 50 years and the Eagan are refreshed and prepared to journey coreward into the Expanse once again.
The dominant power in the T’burad Expanse is the Eagan Republic, an expanding Empire. The Eagan do not have Houses, or geographically defined political areas. Instead, they still use a tribal family structure to represent the people within the government. Planets and colonies send representatives to the government, who are grouped into their tribal families in order to vote in blocks. There is very little infighting between tribal groups, and there has never been a civil war in the recorded history of the planet. Only Eagan have a voice in the government. Non-Eagan are either subjugated, enslaved or destroyed in the Empire.
The Eagan Imperial Republic is very militaristic and territorial, with their Empire in a constant state of expansion. The Eagan people are technically adept and believe themselves to be an ancient and noble race. The Eagan Republic suffers from the belief in their manifest destiny: they were meant to rule the galaxy and no one can stand in their way.
