The Black Star Order is a civilized space community.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
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 Chancellor[edit | edit source]
The Order is lead by a supreme theocratic leader, the Chancellor, who represents the BSO in international meetings and discussions. As head of state, it is the only one who can assign a honorific title to a new member of the Order and is the Holy Defender of the Black Star Cult. Its positions is life-long and, once a Chancellor abdicates or passes away, a new leader must be elected democratically by the Council of Noble Ones.
The Vicar[edit | edit source]
The Vicar plays the role of head of government, is democratically elected by the Council of Nobles Ones, and remains in charge up to one month. It acts as main speaker of the Council, holds and manages elections and votes, and officially communicates every resolution to the Council. It also has the power to propose members of other civilizations to nominated nobles by the Chancellor.
The Council of Noble Ones[edit | edit source]
The Council is an assembly formed by every member of the Order, included the Chancellor and the Vicar. It is by the Council that every noble member of the BSO can communicate with each other, vote, discuss resolutions, laws, propose and organize events and (likewise the Vicar) bring to the attention of the Chancellor members of other States particularly deserving to assign them an honorific title.
The Titles[edit | edit source]
Each member of the Order gains one of the following titles once joining the BSO; a title is associated with the rule of a planet (the Homeplanet of the member). Only the Chancellor has the power to assign these titles:
The Chancellor can assign a honorific title to members of other civilizations as special acknowledgment:
The Cult of the Black Star[edit | edit source]
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.
Scientific Research Branches[edit | edit source]
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 plants.
Naming Guidelines[edit | edit source]
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 Foundation Stars. Anyway, members are free to rename star systems and planets if they wish.
