“The people of Om had real-time quantum communications and had left a satellite conversion relay orbiting Ganahar.”
The twenty-eight-thousand-year nonintervention policy of the planet Om had mutated from a moral ethos into a culpable misfortune and wrongdoing. The Kundabuffer Empire was usurping planets with humanoid populations into the war economy of its accelerating imperial expansion for more than a thousand years. Om had the technological power to end the suffering caused by this tumor-like empire, yet it did nothing. Om owed much of its advanced knowledge to a super-evolved race of posthumanoids who had also alerted them to an alien race perpetrating human genocide in three galaxies and a very precise prediction of when Om would be directly confronted by them. Om was further informed that in order to end this threat, a yellow sun human of the Hub Galaxy and a member of Om’s Clear Light Order of warrior monks would need to unite and travel to the Xegachtznel Galaxy. The time of the confrontation was nearly upon them.
“On Ganahar, no one had authority over anyone else and no one could ever tell anyone else what to do.”
