After the human society found a way to travel between stars, everything changed. With the discovery of almost limitless natural resources, countless amazing and life-abounding planets and even some intelligent animal species, people scattered to every corner of the universe. The current cosmic civilisation is rich and powerful, but completely decentralized. And history goes on. Information travels faster and in larger volumes, people move for work and the market economy takes overproduction to a whole new level. In a society not limited by possibilities of only one planet, nobody even cares anymore.
