I put multiple advanced starts into this galaxy, so things are a little disproportionate lol. I got pretty lucky with my placement in the galaxy, I had weak neighbors aside from that Fallen Empire. That was the closest I came to death, but I just barely muscled them out. Gaining their four Gaia worlds and all of the resources around them was a massive boon to my economy, and by that point most other empires were more content trying to appease or ignore me than fight me. If I'd committed more genocide prior, they probably would have jumped on me while I was weak from that war. But with my vassals fighting proxy wars for me so I could save strength, my fleet power was limited only by time and resources. I jumped forward by leaps and bounds technologically from picking apart that Fallen Empire.

The galaxy has seen a time of relative peace and great expansion among its spacefaring civilizations. The Foosa have reached far beyond our home world, amassing a sizable empire whose border size rivals that of the ancient Fex’Klanga Guardians. An independent sector had to be created to manage the expanse that is the Foosa Prosperity…

Image

Image

The discrepancy between the two genetically distinct Foosa has had little impact on society since there is little distinction between the two ideologically. A Hoosa (the colloquial name for the horse Foosa) was even elected leader not long after their genetic rejuvenation into the universe. In fact, since the Foosa became split between two species with two different breeding habits, our colonies have been populating twice as fast, which has been an incredible benefit to the Foosan cause…

Image

The most recent acquisitions for the Foosa Prosperity were the Peith (a triple-tropical planet system) and Sayhouvis stars and the surrounding systems. The area was so incredibly rich in resources and habitable planets that we sent our colony ships halfway around the galaxy in a detour to get their people there. The cause of the detour likely set changed course of galactic history forever...

Image

As our science ships explored the unknown, we came across many new species of intelligent and not-so-intelligent life…

Image

Our slave-loving neighbors in the Foundation of Sintomoroi’Utlak and the dismissive Fex’Klanga Guardians were not our only neighbors. The “Glorious” Athalli Hegemony quickly became our rival, being so caught up in their militaristic brotherhood and lust for honor that they decided the Foosa were squandering their potential and declared the Foosa Prosperity as an illegitimate government. They settled the only star system giving us access to the Peith-Sayhouvis systems and blocked our route there, delaying our plans for years but luckily not preventing our acquisition of said systems.

More empires became known as the Foosa explored, and luckily for us, a healthy number of them were likeminded pacifist egalitarians. The time of peace seemed to draw to a close, however, as the distant United Khessam League and Korinth Polity went to war, ending in a bloody liberation of several planets and annexation of several more. Soon after, the “Glorious” Athallid Hegemony ramped up is diplomatic insults and the Foundation of Sintomoroi’Utlak – once a longtime nonaggression pact member and trade partner – broke our agreements and cut diplomatic ties. The drums of war were echoing in our direction, so the Foosa, being surrounded by enemies, had no choice but to unite with likeminded species and entities…

Image

The Beneficial Concord is a federation made up of the following:
-The Foosa Sovereignty, the most superior of the federation by numbers
-The Accord of Jib, a medium-sized direct democracy of federation builders
-The Oklarr Cooperative, a theocratic republic that was always friendly to the Foosa Prosperity and even launched their invitation to the federation
-Pelx-Cradonian Consumer Products, a megacorporation made up of only a tiny handful of systems who the Foosa took pity on and invited to the federation after their own acceptance

The Foosan entry into the federation caused some upheaval internally. A segment of our population was keen on dominating the galaxy through force, and the entry into a pact of any kind was a very negative outcome for them. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Foosa won’t change their goals, but some are definitely unhappy…

Glad your genetically different folks get along lol, the xenophobic Haahn' freaked the **** out when some of their species mutated on a harsh planet and became the Neo-Haahn. The unmutated Haahn began making terrorist attacks that were ramping up to an apartheid esque situation, so I resettled the Neo-Haahn to a system on the fringes of the galaxy. They have one Gaia planet to themselves, and three habitats where they guard over races destined for genocide as they mine away to their dying days.

That's what happens when you're literally space Nazis. My people are spiritualist egalitarian pacifists, for ****'s sake. Of course they get along, lol.

I've been telling my other friend about my exploits as the war progresses and he just said "Dude you're **** evil tho lol" to which I responded "As King Robert from Game of Thrones once said-
"Honor? I've got Seven Kingdoms to rule! One king, Seven Kingdoms! Do you think honor keeps them in line? Do you think it's honor that's keeping the peace? It's fear! Fear and blood!"
And I've got a LOT more than Seven Kingdoms to rule lol."

I forgot to mention, the Foosa's extreme border just barely exudes the only Gaia planet we have discovered so far. It's prime real estate for settling, but unfortunately it's considered a holy world by the Fex'Klanga Guardians and the first empire to touch it will die, according to them. Needless to say, the Foosa have respected their wishes.

Funny you should mention one of them, haha.

With one crushing victory after another, the Republic of Inarus marched onward with our vision of a galaxy under our control. The fledgling empires of the western end of the galaxy became increasingly desperate as the war carried on, as evidenced in these photos of a heavily armored Ikaruzi Imperium frigate ramming through one of my light ships shields and thin armor to destroy it.
Image
Image

The Inarus Republic's campaign of ruthlessly efficient conquest carried on as planned up until the Light Fleet was sent in to engage the State of Heejon's main fleet. The State found itself positioned on the opposite end of the galactic core to me, giving them more time to prepare for my onslaught than any of the other nations. As a result, my Light Fleet was caught by surprise when the State of Heejon's fleet began unleashing a veritable lightning storm on me from weapons I myself have yet to research. One by one my lighter ships were mercilessly struck down by the lightning weapons before they could even get their weapons in range, each strike overloading the shields before burrowing its way into the thinly armored hulls.
Image
Image

Eventually the Light Fleet was left with no option other than to retreat, allowing a brief moment of hope and courage for the galactic communities, only to have it snuffed out when my Capital Fleet arrived to return the favor. The lightning had little effect on their much thicker shields and armor, and before the enemy fleet knew it they were entirely wiped out.
But with my Light Fleet brought down to 3000 strength and not enough fleets remaining to attack AND protect my previous gains, I turned to the defensive. My Medium Fleet took over the job of intercepting fleets as they appeared before they could merge with others, while my Capital Fleet jumped from one conquered system to another as enemy ships appeared to liberate them. As my Light Fleet was rebuilt, I also completed the first steps in my Sentry Array, allowing me to spot a free Gaia world sitting in unclaimed space.
Image

Guardians weren't happy.
Image

Unwilling to give into the demands of the pampered zealots, the Republic of Inarus pressed its winning position in the First Galactic War to sue for peace. While only receiving half of my prizes of war, it allowed me to focus all of my fleets into one 210K strong hammer, intent on smashing their advanced but less numerable fleets into oblivion so I could have free rein to stomp out the weeds one by one. Their fleets weren't foolish enough to come to me, rallying instead in their home system surrounded by fortresses to help fight off my fleet, which I reluctantly sent on the offense against their two 45K fleets and horde of space stations.
Image

The ensuing battle will go down in history as one of the most brutal knock down, drag out brawls the Republic has ever faced. The opening volleys were carried out by fighters on both sides, thousands met each other in the black no-mans land between the two fleets for a pitched and hard fought battle. While they sent essentially all of their fighters to the center fray, a significant number of mine slipped around the fighters and enemy fleets to begin harassing the space stations early into the fight.
Image

Before too long most of the fighters on both sides had been killed either by each other or point defense weapons, leaving the two Guardian fleets to engage my Grand Fleet. Sensing the danger it posed to them, their ships fought hard to close the distance with my flagship the Atlas. Ruthlessly knocking aside the cruisers and frigates escorting her, the Guardians quickly began to swarm the gargantuan ship and overwhelm her defenses.

Image

While one fleet focused on holding off the Atlas's reinforcements, the other doubled down on scrapping the flagship, finally dragging her shields down and eviscerating her armor. With hundreds of hull breaches along her several kilometers, fires spreading to dangerous areas and her weapons systems failing the ships captain and leader of the Grand Fleet, Admiral Zand, ordered a full evacuation of the ship alongside having charges set in her multiple Zero-Point Fusion Reactors.
Image
Image

The resulting, gas giant sized explosion decimated the Guardian fleet surrounding the Atlas in a blinding ball of white light to rival the systems star.
Image

While the loss of the Atlas is devastating, it in turn spared the rest of our Grand Fleet and allowed us to topple the rest of the Guardian Empire before they could bounce back. Admiral Zand's escape pod and dead body were found by Haahn inspecting our new territory, allowing his corpse to be recovered for a proper burial. He's set to be posthumously awarded the Republics highest honor for his actions in obliterating the Guardian Fleet and all but assuring our dominance over the galaxy.

With the first Galactic War at an end, a period of reluctant peace slips over the Galaxy for at least the next decade. Public opinion in the Republic is generally that the gains in the war were far worth the price paid.

Well, unless the Unbidden spawn in the middle of your empire during the next war, that galaxy's inhabitants might as well have no chance.

I'm probably going to hold off on war until a crisis happens or one of the Empires does something unforgivable lol, they're all well aware of how much of a threat I am by now so pretty much everyone is going to focus on their military. If they can form a strong federation, they may have a shot. But if they come at me that disorganized again I'm probably going to wipe everyone else off of the map.

It's also worth noting that the last remaining Fallen Empire is also the only fanatically militaristic one, so they're going to be the strongest of the three I need to take down.

I wish I had any **** clue about fleet composition or weapon choices in this game. I've been throwing **** together and hoping I don't have to go to war in this playthrough, rofl.
