In the First Time the Bentusi found the Great Hyperspace Core. With it came the gift of interstellar travel. The outer rim trade routes were established, uniting the galaxy in peace. 

Four thousand years passed before the Second Core was discovered on a desert planet. Pain and bloodshed flowed in its wake as the exiles returned to their homeworld. For a century peace and prosperity followed. It proved fleeting.

Work has begun on the second Mothership. The Hyperspace core which is the mark of their heritage has been removed from storage and brought to the Tanis shipyard for final integration.

"The Hiigarans have rebuilt their civilization under the watchful eye of Karan S'jet, the neuroscientist and architect of the Mothership who had integrated herself into the hyperspace core of the Mothership. The energy from the core has given her prolonged life and expanded consciousness, and it was Karan that first saw the true threat of the Vaygr. Vaygr raiders began small incursions into the Inner Rim that soon became all out war. The Hiigarans refused to interfere and were content to ignore the problems in the Inner Rim, but war would soon come to them. The Vaygr possessed the singular technology that gave the Hiigarans their dominance in the effort to reclaim the Homeworld: the Far Jumper." - Jim Richmond, Adrenaline Vault

"The discovery of the Far Jumper, an ancient hyperdrive, gave them the chance to rediscover their ancient home. What followed was an epic journey as a mothership, piloted by a woman named Karan S'jet, plowed through the galaxy trying to find Hiigara. Generations have passed and the former Kushans, now Hiigarans, have prospered under the leadership of Karan S'jet - still the voice of Fleet Command. A new threat has appeared in the galaxy, however, a mysterious race called the Vaygr who seem bent on conquering Hiigara. Even worse, the Vaygr have possession of a Far Jumper, a technology that the Hiigarans thought they had a monopoly on." - Allen Rausch, GameSpy
