Description of the Star System
Founded in 2220, the four Worlds of the Project (one planet, Epsilon, remains uncolonised) system, Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta were colonised with the goal to being the sites of intellectual learning in the galaxy. A place where a new Renaissance could begin and where the minds of so many brilliant scholars and scientists could be provided with all the tools of their trade to the benefit of the whole Republic. The Project planets have since become what they were dreamed to be. The planets have been totally urbanised, with over 50% of the total land space available taken up by huge library systems.
The entire knowledge of the Terran Democratic Republic and their allies stored in one giant, computer system. The only complete copy of the Terran Democratic Republic database is to be found in the Project system. There are other sources of the information, to secure against some kind of failure in the Project mainframe, however this information is carefully distributed throughout the TDR. Thousands of administration personnel work tirelessly to ensure that there are at least three copies of all information distributed around the Republic.
Project is a site where all the great scholars of the TDR congregate at some point. It is a place of learning and of innovation. The last 50 scientific breakthroughs were all made on the four Project Worlds. Carefully selected because of the five rock planets on which constructions could be placed (Project Gamma and Project Epsilon lack breathable atmospheres) the Project system was one of only two candidates.
