HistoryEdit

Very little is known about the First and Second ages. After the Third Age, data is plentiful.


The AgesEdit

Tempore De Potentiam (Birth of the Cosmos-2BYA)Edit

Before The First Age (Birth of the Cosmos-8.2BYA)Edit

Any number of things may have happened during this era. This is the time before the Watchers first evolved. No sentience existed yet. The Watchers became the first of the Sentients at the end of this "Preceding Age."


First Age (8.2BYA-5BYA)Edit
This was technocracy in its purest form. Advances were slow after the first seventy millenia, but The Watchers kept on advancing. During this time, the other Sentients began to form. Most never went past the Late

A standard Watcher Transdimensional Cruiser. It is shown here firing the Spacetime Cannon during an engagement with The Others, the second sentient race. This ship destroyed their entire battle fleet single-handedly, which, by the way, comprised of over nine thousand ships.

Information Age (Earth 2020s) and very few reached the Stellar Age (Federation from Star Trek.) A few races of the Titan Age (The Xeelee are a good example) sprang up, however, but these were rare- in the whole of the First Age, the Watcher Empire, now spanning more than 72 percent of the entire universe, only recorded seven of these races. The Empire was stable- all powerful, all knowing, all advanced.


Second Age (5BYA-2BYA)Edit

Less is known about the Second Age than the First. What is known is this- the Watchers needed a new universe to live in. Analysis suggests they had either encountered too much competition from the ever-increasing number of fellow races or damaged the universe beyond temporary repair with testing of The Overseer, the most powerful technology ever devised, and were retreating to another universe while their repair system would, over seven

million years, simultaneously fix the universe and alter it in such a way that no other life could ever arise. Since we are all still here, the first is likely true.



They encountered a hostile species in their chosen universe. The Empire attempted to close the portal, but was unsuccessful, and three days later, a strike force of forty million warships attacked. They were armed with formerly unknown superweapons. One said superweapon simply erased whatever it hit. Once "The Weapon," as it was known to The Empire, was fired, removed any trace of its target- everything relating to it, was removed. For example, a single colony containing only twenty inhabitants somehow destroyed billions of Watcher ships, de-terraformed multiple planets, and, most importantly, erased their knowledge of how to teleport.

The Weapon firing at The Empire's native planet. This blast erased nearly everything to do with The Empire, bar an isolated outpost on New Haven and another one in a galaxy far, far away. Note how the beam smashes through the Defender System (basically a Rift, but even more advanced.)


In the War Of Time, the second and final conflict, which stretched over two and a half billion years, over seven quadrillion ships were sent and lost, along with thousands of galaxy clusters and trillions of star systems. In the end, The Invaders defeated The Watchers and left only New Haven and Xe'mka in Watcher hands.


Tempore De Mortem (2BYA-10MYA)Edit

Third Age (2BYA-800MYA)Edit

At this point, The Empire consisted of only the two above planets, over nine billion light-years apart. They could not reach each other, but could nonetheless communicate using Tachyonic technologies. They communicated for a long time, but never developed any technology. They found this pointless, and rather slowly reverse-engineered ancient technology left behind by The Old Empire. This was a time of darkness for many- torture was allowed, even promoted in the darker regions of New Haven (and they got creative about it,) people laughed while reading Cupcakes or watching Saving Private Ryan. In other words, everyone basically become Omni.


Fourth Age (800MYA- 10KYA)Edit
At this point, New Haven and Xem'ka had been cut off from communicating with each other for some reason. It seemed deliberate. The seven colonies they had established also went dark. Each was left t

o its own devices. It is thought that only New Haven remained at the end of this age, the other eight going totally dark. During this time, The Empire finally cracked a tiny bit of tech and reverse-engineered technology roughly equivalent to 2050s Earth.



Watchers TodayEdit

The Watchers, of course, aren't dead. Mark our words, believe our souls live on, don't worry now, I have gone, I've gone beyond, I've seen the truth.


EconomyEdit

The Empire's economy is relatively stable, equatable to real-life second world country. The average citizen has all the money they need and then some. Numerous laws govern the economy, assuring that poverty is never a problem within The Empire.

The market constantly changes, but in the end, it is always the same in one important way- stable. Although mostly a free market, all transactions are done through a large trade network, keeping citizens from any illegal trading.



ResearchEdit

{C Despite their reputation for advanced technology, Imperial focus is little wasted on research. Why, you ask? They are busy re-engineering it from their ancestors. It's at their fingertips, they just have yet to crack it.

MilitaryEdit

Most of the power of The Empire is focused on unending improvement of its militaristic strength, ensuring invincibility against most opponents. In a recent press release, Emperor Marvin stated that only three powers existed that could theoretically match or defeat The Empire in a fair fight (or not): The UTF, The Illuminated, and The Wisdom Pact, the last being a quite possible victory by the Empire.

Space ForceEdit

The ISF (Imperial Space Fleet, or Imperial Space Force in some sources) is the best-funded and most advanced division of The Empire. Its technology is generally considered to be first-rate. The ships themselves are somewhere between the quality of Illuminated and UTF vessels.




Terrestrial ForcesEdit

Poor ground troops- they get relatively little funding and are quite weak compared to those of other races (spefically, the Empire Of Time.) The force contains around a half million men from 14-25 in peacetime (the human equivalent of 18-40.) They ITF exists almost solely as a distraction while orbital bombardment or space battles are being done. Although they are relatively weak themselves, they still have access to the advanced Imperial technology. Another perk is the advanced combat suits they wear.

Combat suits or no, this might as well be the ITF uniform anyway.
