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.
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."

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
