intergalactic colony ships. Your ship was launched before your home world was destroyed in the maelstrom. It contains all the knowledge for survival and conquest.
Other factions and races from both galaxies came to the same conclusion.
There was only one galaxy within reach.
The ancestors named your new home Many Suns.
