Welcome on Laataia

The next wave of Hard Sci-Fi Space Opera...

Imagine. The world of far future transposed into the eye of an archaeologist ... about 20,000 years AD. Laatavia is the bible of post-stellar times, the receptacle of all knowledge of the known worlds Based on the time frame, let's say this story officially ends about twenty thousand years AD. Why? Just because humanity has more precisely the sense that once gave him: From changes in technology during his stellar big expansion, it has moved away from its habitat to become "expansionist" and forge a first stellar empire.

Mankind swarmed, mutated, and continued his journey to the heart of laataia, Lactavia, the Milky Way. Over there, the flaming heart of the worlds, she found a time of truth came of age a thousand times, but transcended its true nature.

This dropping, its very meaning is being diluted to the point that his memory was lost in those of mutitudes, speak of "human" had no meaning, only left for initiates the dark memory of the founders, some simian tribes of savannah on a small blue planet of Orion's arm.

The Federation: Reaching nearby stars

ORION's arm: The empire

Some 3500 LY across, 10,000 LY in lenght the Orion's arm is a terrific sandbox

The Encyclopedia Galactica

Throughout ten thousand milleniums, time which saw the Yuman and their offsprings colonizing and melting into the known universe, a very large number of civilizations apparears and disappears, eliminating or, more often, assimilating and blending into each other depending on their scale. The stories born from these long forgotten events are endless. Here are a few anecdotes, and samples for everything related to these beings, worlds and technologies. You should definitely chek for amazing places like Jaurasii, or generic articles about interstellar politics, propulsion systems, rins/cylies, space stations, spaceships and space ports, or specific subjects like the Jovian airships and Telluric rockets
