The Story So Far…

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

ERA 1: Hero of the Republic

After 100 years of a costly war against the Sith army, the descendants of the Jedi banished centuries ago, THE GALACTIC REPUBLIC finds itself in unfamiliar territory: reconstruction. With billions of lives lost and scores of worlds left devastated from the war, the Republic now looks to regain lost lands and reclaim their position as the top government in the galaxy as new challengers arise.

Meanwhile, the Outer Rim has decided to strike out on their own, as they suffered the worst blows of the war, and form THE TRADE FEDERATION, a group of traders, bankers, and other citizens of means united under a single banner to restore their precious Rim and determine their own future free of Republic oversight and intervention.

THE JEDI ORDER has found itself in a difficult position, as their traditional role as advisors shifted during the war to that of generals and combatants, with one of their own even achieving the highest Republic honor: HERO OF THE REPUBLIC. Now that there is peace, will the Jedi be able to return to their traditional roles as mediators of peace, remain battle generals, or find a middle ground between the two?

With war comes death and profit, and this war was no different. While many companies rose and fell during the 100 years of war, only two managed to endure the test of time to remain: HOERSCH-KESSEL DRIVEWORKS, located on Tatooine, and the CORELLIAN ENGINEERING CORPORATION, located on Corellia.

What role will you play? The legend awaits!

Situations in Uncharted Space
In recent days, situations have developed in uncharted sectors of space nearby two planets: [Large asteroid cluster detected near Lorrd] Astronomers at the Rimworld Institute For Deep Space Observation have reporting gravitational anomalies near Lorrd that bear all the signs of a deep-space asteroid cluster. Their readings indicate strong mining potential. They advise would-be explorers to head between -30, 30 and -20, 40. [Defective Ships Stranded in Deep Space] Multiple reports are coming in about an older model of transport popular with budget travelers which have been breaking down mid-hyperjump. Port authorities on Nim Drovis report that many such ships recently departed for Wroona and haven't yet been seen there. Several long-range calls for assistance have been detected to the galactic East of the Meridian system, between coordinates -20, -10 and 0, -20. Skilled astronomers have reason to believe that both will persist for some time.

Trade Federation Emerges
With the Outer Rim left to pick up the pieces after suffering the initial onslaught of the Sith forces, a group of traders, bankers and other citizens of means came together to form their own government that would look out for the needs of the Outer Rim. After some negotiations and concessions, the group came together to form: The Trade Federation. While not a government in the traditional sense, the Trade Federation is headed by Viceroy Niarem Zevon who has led the recovery of the Outer Rim with a steady hand and firm governance that has seen the profits and quality of life dramatically improve to levels that rival those under the Republic's rule. The question now remains, where does the Trade Federation go from here now that peace has been achieved?

uptime updates
`uptime` has had a few quick updates (hah) today. One is an improvement to readability by whitespace padding the fun build names so that they all line up. The second is the addition of a "details" option, which shows at what date and time a particular uptime record was set. Bonus Update - In response to popular demand, I have defaulted to a short format for the uptime counters (days:hours:minutes:seconds). If you prefer the full text, you can still get it by doing `uptime full.` Also, I found and fixed two crash bugs, and ya'll got to go on a super exciting and (RARE, Exclusive) ride through several failed copyovers.
