The Great Galactic Census

Motion Picture

The milky way

A galaxy, home of countless unique stars and a whole host of enthralling miracles. Wonders referred to as natural phenomena but we barely start to understand the complexity of laws and interactions behind them.

The cradle of Humankind.

Humanity set forth it's epic journey full of detours and doubles far in the ancient past. We paid dearly for our mistakes and sins against the galaxy and planets embracing us. Our acts against sentient species sharing this small region of the vast universe with us took their heavy toll on Humanity as well. Selfish conflicts and techniques for power as an end in itself were deliberately confused with fostering competition and coordination, functions in fact crucial for furthering our development.

Our voyage never lacked in challenges: we struggled with the elements. We tried to overcome our hardships due to the limits of our understanding of the universe. We had to keep going exposed to forces greater than us and beyond our control. Humanity is a fascinating race though.We call struggles by their right name: challenges. We consider challeges to be cure against inaction, stagnation and decline. There is no land barren enough to stop us from trying to cultivate it to provide our families with food and to avoid starvation. We excavate ores and materials from the dusty tunnels of planetary Abysses or deserted asteroid fields to transform them to majestic structures that ensure our survival in the cold depths of space. We defy the heat of smouldering smelters day by day if the need arises.

Step by step we tenaciously uncover mysteries of the galaxy and we mobilize our new insights to further our goals. We don't grow complacent. We fight for our survival so we can fight for our families. Should our families' safety be secured we might work together with and for our communities. If the community is flourishing then we did our best to safeguarding our families and future. Strong communities make such perspectives, opportunities and level of security attainable that an individual alone might never dream of. The building blocks of a strong community are dedicated individuals and the community provides conditions for the individuals to fully utilize their talents and unleash their creativity.

In 3304 the Humankind is greater, more knowledgeable and navigates in the Universe with more confidence than ever before.

However, as our Horizons widened so did our challenges.

Our past is haunting us as well: not all of our hard earned knowledge is shared and our common knowledge is not applied consistently when we make decisions affecting our common future.

At times we act before we think or ask.

Although we know how to prevent outbreaks millions still become victims of epidemics. We know the ins and outs of natural or synthetic food production in planets and even in space but famines still ravage even in developed regions of human domain. Our extensive knowledge in engineering and economic sciences was not effectively mobilized to halt economic recession, stock market and industrial crashes. We have to face dozens of humanitarian and migration crises in the fourth millenia. The edge of our inhabited region is in flames, our structures are attacked by armed forces of alien civilizations.The motiv of these attacks is shrouded in mistery as well as the potential role of certain human groups in provoking them. Althogh the rescue operations are organized and numerous communities spare no efforts and sacrifices to support them, there is no sign of civil protection preparedness in regions potentially affected by further attacks.

Thousands of factions stepped up to channel and mobilize the efforts, talents and creativity of galactic citizens with varying degrees of success. In spite of that most responses to galactic challenges have a local scope or those are motivated by the drive for power: such responses are inherently bound to fail. We don't have an overview of the galactic citizens and regions exposed to forthcoming famines, outbreaks and external attacks.We don't have an overview about the needs of galactic citizens and their latent potentials not utilized for improving the welfare and security of the Humanity. We have a detailed and up-to-date catalogue of galactic bodies or powers but we don't have a comprehensive survey or dataset of those these powers should work for: their citizens. We don't even have a broad record of factions serving them. If we don't know of the individuals of the Humankind or their needs we are in no position to efficiently support human communities to be strengthened and enabled to carry out their essential functions. If we leave our vital duty to survey citizens and their needs unfulfilled we will without a doubt fail in building our common future and fully deploying the potentials of Humankind. Perhaps we will fail even in preventing dangers threatening the future of Humanity. Therefore SSL Interstellar PLC and it's research affiliate, Theta Region Information Services launched the initiative "The Great Galactic Census".

It is time to obtain a clear picture of galactic citizens, factions and their supporters. It's time and it might be the last moment to assess which communities need help; which regions and their inhabitants are facing natural, alien, military, economic or security risks and threats. It's time to get prepared and help those communities, so relieved from these perils they can again take part in our collective efforts and pay back the support multiple times to Humankind. It's time to provide even more publicity and to show our appreciation to factions, who channel individuals, creative energies and talents to potent communities, constituting indispensable pillars of the future of Humanity.
