GAGA Crime and Punishment

Following the end of the Second Corporation Wars in 2920, the GAGA established a well-defined criminal justice system with clearly delineated approaches to crime and punishment. The GAGA assembly drafted a Galactic Citizen’s Bill of Rights with a section dealing with citizen rights and criminal activity, entitled Rights of the Galactic Citizen. In one of only four unanimous votes of the GAGA Assembly, it was determined that the main drive of the GAGA was to create and maintain effective, productive citizens with access to basic amenities of life through the GAGA, and to ensure that citizens could be made as … Continue reading GAGA Crime and Punishment

Halvorrsson Trie

Developed by Ivor Halvorrsson, father to biochemist Annanth Halvorrsson and CEO of Halvorrsson Industries, the Trie is a biotechnical oxygen scrubber for use in confined and polluted spaces.

Bioengineered leaf structures made from specialized cholorplasts scrub not only carbon oxides but heavy metals and trace elements out of the air, as well as removing certain radioactive beta particles. Each scrubber is connected in a series, and all are joined to a centralized hydroponic system in a pleasing configuration … Continue reading Halvorrsson Trie

Dukh Project

Galactic Armed Forces Starship Classes and Classification System

“Having the classes of ships explained to me was a blur until I was actually taken into orbit and saw them in the shipyard. I had absolutely no reality on the size of them- even the smallest were monsters when seen in a fleet! The SpaceCruisers, described as ‘instant war’ ,were too big to take in even when confronted with them. They were the size of large asteroids or small planets and they were armed to the teeth with weaponry. They even had dozens of lesser ships jammed into them and prepared for deployment. They could take down a rebellion … Continue reading Galactic Armed Forces Starship Classes and Classification System

Gamma Quadrant

The Gamma quadrant is foremost in primary resources, especially mining. Most of the habitable planets in this quadrant were terraformed to one degree or other to make them suitable for human life. Colony ships are sent to these newly terraformed worlds to “work” the planets for the GAGA. Algorithms designed to determine the maximum amount of resources that can be removed before the planet loses viability are applied to each world. The liveability index is then used in fine-tuning the number of original colonists that are sent to each world. Depending on the nature of the resources extracted and the … Continue reading Gamma Quadrant

Wrought Industries

Wrought Industries is the single largest corporation conglomerate in the galaxy. It is so large and its subsidiaries so multitudinous that the GAGA had to develop its own tax code for the company to ensure all available revenues were requisitioned.  Its products include everything from toilet paper to its trademark “Puddin’ Hots”; inter-system missiles to laser cannons and old fashioned bullets. Wrought Industries began as a military supply concern that bought out two old Earth transportation networks and a munitions company. Victorinus Wrought acquired the company with money he earned from re-distributing the rights to his new wife Enora’s motion … Continue reading Wrought Industries
