A thousand years ago, amidst the vast cosmic sea, humanity stirred from a profound slumber. The colossal colony ship U.E.F Paris, a sentinel of their forgotten origins, gently touched down on the enigmatic surface of Vega Prime. For a quarter of a century, diligent hands and unyielding determination had toiled to prepare this new world for habitation. At long last, the moment arrived when the slumbering vessel's one hundred thousand inhabitants would emerge from their ageless dreams.

In that epochal awakening, humanity found itself facing a paradox, aware of its existence yet shrouded in questions that defied answer. The colony ship had traversed the boundless expanse of space, its journey spanning epochs, but the memories of its passengers remained fragmented and incomplete. They did not know from whence they came, the duration of their cosmic voyage, or even the purpose that had set them on this celestial odyssey.

Nevertheless, humanity, ever adaptable and resilient, embarked upon a journey of expansion and self-discovery, leaving its mark on the tapestry of the cosmos. Over the course of a millennium, its reach extended far and wide, with colonization endeavors that reached beyond a hundred distant worlds. Humanity's relentless quest for knowledge and exploration propelled it to the farthest reaches of the universe, where it brushed against the edges of the enigmatic realm known as The Reach.

In the span of a thousand years, humanity experienced the full spectrum of existence, from the zenith of scientific marvels and profound discoveries to the nadir of catastrophic wars and relentless plagues. Yet, like a tenacious ember in the face of an unforgiving storm, humanity endured. It persevered through the ebb and flow of history, evolving into an unassailable tidal wave of existence, counting an astonishing ninety-five billion souls among its ranks.

As we stand at the threshold of the present, let us reflect on the millennia-long journey that has shaped humanity into the cosmic force it is today. The story of our kind is one of resilience, discovery, and the indomitable spirit that propels us ever forward into the boundless unknown of the universe.
