The Milky Way Galaxy (also known as the Plazith Rim, Vintergatan, among uncountable names) is one of the major galaxies in the Gigaquadrant. Spanning between one hundred thousand and one hundred and ten thousand light years in diameter, the Milky Way is known as one of the most diverse galaxies in the Gigaquadrant, being the home of many civilisations such as the Delpha Coalition of Planets, the various states of Humanity, the Indoctrinate Collective, the Salsetthe Republic and the nations of the Katar Sector, amongst many others. With so many varied civilisations, the history of the galaxy is endless. Only the most ancient civilizations know what had happened millenia ago, but rarely share their memories to the younger races, which are nevertheless growing in their own power and prestige. Up until recently, most extragalactics saw the primary face of the galaxy as the Civilisation, though the dominance of this faction has been questioned in recent decades. Very suddenly, a large empire of Pilgrims have appeared.
The history of the galaxy is vast. Only the most ancient civilizations know what had happened millenia ago, but rarely share their memories. Wars are in bold. Large sections are broken down into sectors and arms, so some information might be repeated where relevant.
Ancient past - Gigayears Edit
- 13,000,000,000 BC - The proto-Milky Way began to form.
- 12,000,000,000 BC - Far star begins to shine.
- 10-6,000,000,000 BC - Due to a variety of new elements, complex life started to rise.
- 9,000,000,000 BC - The First War of Black Fog takes place between Ultraterrestrials, perhaps the first war of the Proto-Milky Way.
- The emergence of life
- 6,000,000,000 BC - The Galactic Core becomes less active until various galactic collisions occur.
- The first Grox colonists from Ardenta (Andromeda) begin to colonise the Core worlds.
- 7-3,000,000,000 BC - The systems such as the Sol system and Chilius system that will become the future homeworlds of modern day civilizations begin to form. By now, life is beginning to flourish in the universe, due to the increasing number of stable main-sequence stars and the production of heavier elements.
- 2,000,000,000 BC - The Xyanxes donate the Milky Way as a wildlife sanctuary and create the living AI planet Fahler, using digital lifeforms to guard it.
100 megayears Edit
At some point in this era, the Milky Way's Precursors began to evolve "First Ones", Pseudomorphs and Draconians, joining the ranks of the Ardenta Grox and Xynaxes as rulers of the galaxy (see Plazith Rim Precursors).
- 75,000,000 BC - The Crys'Irith mysteriously vanish around this point in time, leaving behind several ruins that were kept in shape by cults who worshiped them.
- 65,000,000 BC - Two asteroids (and other events) caused a mass extinction on Earth, however, a race of Saurians escaped the planet and eventually ascended.
- 1,000,000 BC - Gablinus-Avis achieve sapience.
- The Nyarqaeshu attempt to overthrow the Grox. The war is ended when their leader, Xizouyu, dies in combat. They then decide to take over neighbouring galaxies instead.

The start of this war also is the start of The Purge, which aims to eliminate the presence of most extragalactic powers in the galaxy.
- The AI Netspace, busy with their unknown project (the Omegapoint) begin to drain power reserves from the Milky Way Cooperative, and a whole star cluster becomes uninhabitable due to high energy cosmic rays.

- 2790s: The Dominatus attempt to become the dominant military power through a rapid campaign, but it eventually saw the Dominatus's removal from the galaxy. The DCP-Vermulan War occurs towards the end of the 28th century, which caused the Mantisorac invasion thanks to the war bringing the Milky Way to the attention of the natives in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
- 2797 - 2798: The Kicathian Republic and Kicath Empire wage war in an event known as the Kicathian Dissension, which resulted in the Kicathian Republic ousting the Empire's influence from the Kicathian territorial expanse in the Milky Way.

- The Ra'zac appear near the Galactical Core.
The Milky Way is between 100 and 120 thousand light years across, and contains over 400 billion stars. It is one of the largest and most influential galaxies in the Local group of galaxies (partly because many empires in fiction are within it). The Milky Way completes a full rotation about once every 50 million years. The disk is about 1,000 light years thick and the bulge is about 12,000 light years thick. The halo that surrounds the disk and arms is 180,000 light years thick, and contains mostly old stars and hypervelocity stars that have been kicked out of the galaxy by the Galactic core. The Halo is a very poor place to colonize and contains few planets with life and fewer colonies than the disk. The DCP has colonised Far Star, named after a comet in the Chilius system. The Halo also contains globular clusters and some dwarf galaxies that are getting shredded and absorbed into the Milky Way.

Political Division Edit
The Milky Way does not have one dominant faction, but does contain very large and powerful empires. The Milky Way is a very big galaxy compared to most, and has over 400 billion stars, so there is lots of room for many, many factions. Because there is so many, it would be very difficult to create one large alliance or even conquer the entire galaxy, although the DCP's territories are expanding more quickly than most. There was an extinct galactic empire that existed millions of years ago known as the Coadunation of Autonomous Beings, but the members such as the Naucean are thought to have ascended.
Due to recent conflicts, some civilizations are joining the "Milky Way" cooperative, neither an alliance or an organization, empires simply combine their efforts to become one Meta-civilization when the need arises, either to gather a new energy source or during a galaxy-wide conflict.
There are over 10,000 civilizations inhabiting the Milky Way (although the majority are Tier 6 to 4, avoid contact or are in the far reaches, and remain unknown). Most are very alien (Tier U), and rarely interact with other empires or are interested in galactic affairs. However, some of the more powerful empires do. Some civilizations don't make it long after their discovery of nuclear energy, this means finding dead radioactive worlds is not too uncommon. The Galactic Core is rather devoid of normal life, due to the intense radiation, with only the harshest of life forms like the Grox surviving, and the Galactic Halo contains mostly low metallicity old stars, meaning life is also less common. Civilizations tend to exist in certain space environments that are calmer, and thus can form quite closely to each other.
Note: When an empire has a line through it, it might be extinct, or presumed extinct/unknown after the Annihilation if the user has not reclaimed it.
To use this scale, add your empire in each arm by order of Tiers, and note their status. If they didn't evolve in that region but have colonies, add colonies to the list. The list below shows the major influencing powers of the galaxy. However, many more exist, including varios Tier Unknown civilizations and Truly Alien life recently discovered.
