Before the player even create a character is important to consider and even perhaps generate the ship they will be in command of. Much of the game will take place on the ship as it is a character unto itself. Galactic Imperium star ships are literal cities will populations of in the tens of thousands. The most populist of this ships can have well over 100,000 aboard. These size is equally impressive as they are on average 12 kilometers in length with some ships over 20 kilometers. These starships tend to have names that work both as a ship and a town.
Aboard every starship are the four major factions of that make of the Galactic Imperium. While each indiviual ship has differing levels of influence from each faction, there is no a single vessel in the Imperium navy that is missing even a single faction. The fact is, while these factions are often at odds with each other, they need the others for mutual operation of the ship. Note: The four factions are often set in opposition of each other for better story conflicts: Imperium vs. Civic (military vs. civilian) and Church vs. Foundation (Faith vs. Science or even Money vs. Discovery).
The Imperials They are both the military and major governmental agency of the Imperiuim. Aboard any starship, their commodores are the captains of these mightly vessel who answer to no one except to High Command.
The Sixth Reformation Holy Church of the Divine Better known as the Sixth Reformation Church, Reformation Church, or simply the Church. As an organization, they are the wealthy in Imperium and often bankroll much of the Imperium’s operations.
The Foundation University A secretive organization formed at the fall of the old Confederacy that keeps tight control on the dispersal of knowledge and technology. They fear another dark age if the knowledge they posse if given freely without consideration.
The Civics The men and women of the local government aboard the ship. The are not directly controlled by any faction but influenced by all. Most Civics are regular people attempting to get through their daily lives. The Imperium largely deals with their government officials and captains of industry.
The Void (aka outer space or space) the Galactic Imperium controls contains hundreds of solar systems and countless worlds. However, they are far from complete control of the galaxy or even full exploration of it. In fact, the current Imperium has not even rediscovered half of the Void considered part of the old Confederacy of Worlds that few many millennia ago. While other portions of the know galaxy are controls by other galactic empires.
