In the year 2107, Humanity had finally unlocked the secret they had been looking to discover for well over a century: Interstellar Travel. This would turn out to be both a gift and a curse.
In 2570 after several centuries of prosperity, well over a thousand human colonies would band together to form an organization known as the Star League. In order to maintain peace across such a vast network of systems Hyper Pulse Generators were used in order to maintain rapid communication between worlds over hundreds of lightyears apart.
Two centuries would pass and the eventual destabilization of Star League would be through tense political views and threats from one world to another. The worlds under the Star League agreement were now begging for blood to be shed from systems inside of it's domain. A massive failure of the Hyperpulse Network only threw fuel onto the fire.
In 2780 Star League collapses and the section of planets closest to Terra referred to as the 'Inner Sphere' would be thrown into a war of conquest by the Successor States and the house banners in those states trying to claim dominance over one another. These brutal genocidal camapigns put Humanity back technologically nearly eight hundred years caused by four major time-frames of conflict between 2787 to 3025, called the first, second, third, and fourth Succession Wars.
With the darkages beginning to lift, and technology is getting back to possibly surpass what we once had who knows what the galaxy has to offer us in return.
A Battletech universe orientated FIMficiction. I've attempted to keep a canon based story for the Battletech lovers, without going overboard to deter those unfamiliar with the Universe. A lot of information is explained in the story, so don't be scared!
