A religious and military order; the BSO exists to bring civilization in the unknown regions of the Euclid galaxy and to spread the Cult of the Black Star, an agnostic religion that do not believe in good or evil, but considers everything "relative". Despite this controversial belief, the Order is not a criminal organization, but promotes exploration, the search of knowledge, and peace among civilizations.
The BSO Constitution
The Constitution is the fundamental law of the Order, which regulates the organization and functioning of the BSO:
The BSO History
The most significant events in the history of the Order are documented on a dedicated page. All these events are classified as canonical:
The Cult of the Black Star
The Cult is the founding ideology of the Order. It's based on the idea of the "Relative Reality": everything is purely relative, there's no good or evil, but just interpretations of reality based on our education and culture. Maybe someone sees something as "negative" and another one as "positive", but those are all artificial constructs of our mind that, in order to maintain our primitive concepts of "safe for your life" and "not safe", creates the Good and the Evil, Familiar and Alien. The Cult promotes the secession from these prehistoric constructs, accepting the reality as "Nothing and the Opposite of Nothing", all equal and all unequal, and encourages its disciples to live their life as they think it should be lived, without judging other's life or ideas. Otherwise, nobody knows the truth behind the universe or reality, so the Cult accepts the perspectivistic way of thinking.
The Cult adopted the Black Star as its main symbol to represent this paradoxical conception since it is a Star that does not emit light but absorbs it.
The Codex is the specific law that regulates the functioning and organization of the Black Star Navy, one of the two branches of the BSO Armed Forces:
Scientific Research Branches
In order to promote scientific progress, research and exploration, the BSO founded the following non-profit Scientific Research Branches:
- BSO Botanical Society - deals with studying and documenting strange or unique scannable flora, cooperating with multiple organizations across the Universe.
After the approval of a reform project of the Order, every naming guideline is abolished. Members are now encouraged to not modify the Star system's original name. This will help avoid any discrepancy between different platforms or server problems. The systems renamed using the old naming guidelines are classified as The Founding Stars. Anyway, members are free to rename star systems and planets if they wish.
The Order will no longer accept new members.
All official and honorary members of the Order are listed in the Census - Black Star Order page.
The following systems have been discovered by the BSO:
The Founding Stars
The Black Star Order is a proud member of the United Federation of Travelers and maintains an official alliance with Wild Space. The BSO also cooperates and maintains peaceful dilomatic relations with the United Nations 42 and The Indominus Legion.
- After the Mul'kan War events planet Serenno, former capital of the BSO, is returned to its native Vy'keen people. Planet Gortle Sigma is chosen as new and definitive Capital. The Ruins of the Sun Tower are declared cultural site of the Order.
- The Black Star Temple is a holy site representing the Order within the Moonhala Temple Complex atop Mt. Gala.
