Some discoveries of hidden Shaal intergalactic portals opened to us some new space to inhabit in previously not known galaxies. Now we have oportunity to cooperate or compete for this new space - it is only on us, which variant we chose...
Newly open portals also shown us, that our galaxy is not only one inhabited by inteligent lifeforms. Recent contacts shown, that some of them are friendly, as like some others are hostile.

Phase 7: Aetheon Dimension[]

Tar, small galaxy in depths of space. After long time of separation, it is once again on position, which trully belongs to it.
With Shaals as leaders, Antarasans as supervisors, Catmans as warriors, Alleins as strike force, Changelings as spies, Droidans as workers and scientists, Humans as traders and explorers, Mystics as messengers and explorers, and Darkers as controlled threat, it could take leading part in Aetheon Space Confederation.
It is on us to help to protect peace and prosperity in our dimension.
And, of course, we must keep it working in our own galaxy...

Background: Whole space of Aetheon dimension was manifested and estabilished contacts with inhabitants of Tar galaxy, now all potency is needed for Tar to achieve proper name - in whole universe time of massive expansion and exploration of yet unrevealed and unsettled territories. Tar gains institution of central galaxy of universe and have to keep it against contrariety of some less tolerant races, in so far that (save command function) stands up also funkction of whole-universe diplomate and protector of peace. Due to that it however have to maintain peace also on own territory, what some forces tirelesly strive to baffle it, because unification of whole universe contravenes their plans.

Phase 8: Superintelligencies[]

Tar, small galaxy in depths of space. It is center of great power, whole Aetheon dimension.
But from another dimensions, unreachabled with technologies of entire Aetheon, is comming another unimaginable threat, which could be devastating to whole Aetheon dimension.
This threat is called Superintelligencies, entire races forged into one almost allmighty entities. This Superintelligencies are bringing their own civilisations to serve their purposes, which could impair ballance of Aetheon's forces.
Now it is time to reunite again, and fight against intruders. If we fail, we will be enslaved forever and with no mercy, if not even extincted.
Because as some of this powerfull beings are peacefull and only courious on us, others are hungry of destruction.
And with their nearly godlike powers, they could succeed to annihilate us...

Background: To Aetheon dimension penetrates Superintelligences from another dimensions. These superinteligences brings with them whole support nations, what impairs ballance of power in Aetheon, even so much hardly maintained due to interferences of inner enemy forces. Not all superinteligences are hostile, but those positives ones rarely interfere to matters of others, whereas negative ones sticks at nothing (including mass destruction of whole galaxies). Because superinteligences as such are nearly impossible to fight, forces of whole dimension had to focus on their support nations and that way weaken their power. Than (maybe) they will have some hope of success...

Phase 9: Dark Space[]


Background: Victory over Nemesis superinteligence opened to Aetheon dimension inhabitants access to another dimensions. First to hit (literally) is home universe of Darkers, because is due to their arrival accessable most easilly. That universe is full of galaxies, whose inhabitants were eradicated or enslaved by Darkers. It bestows another space for exploration and expansion - but it must at first been cleaned from settled Darkers, who didn't managed to leave with their mothership to Aetheon dimension (to Tar galaxy). Besides that there is also planet, what is home of Darkers precursors. Succesfull contact with them would open access to another dimensions, because this Darkers precursors own and controls appropriate technologies.

Phase 10: Unlimited Possibilities[]

Intro: intro10.txt

Background: Contact with Darkers precursors allowed openning another after another passages to another new dimensions a permanent expansion of civilisation to them. Some of discovered dimensions are deserted and uninhabited, while others teems with life, whether friendly or hostile.
