The Reign of Darkness
In the year 2175, a Hegemony science vessel was detached to an uninhabited exoplanet in orbit of star RN-06 in neutral space. What they awakened there became known to Terran and Grushan worlds as the Black Ship. This is the a Terran story of the reign of terror of the Black Ship, told through never before heard recordings and transcripts of news broadcasts, diary entries, vlogs, and declassified military transmissions from the Terran Interstellar Authority, the Novan Stellar Navy, and the Federal Grushan Star Fleet. Some portions of the story have been poorly recorded; these have been reconstructed to the best of our ability. However, every part of this story is true, insofar as it may be derived. We write this in memory of the millions who lost their lives in the conflicts that ensued, as well as those who have no voice, and to the veterans of the fight. May this document help to bring understanding between cultures and worlds.

[Work in progress, draft 1 is complete and I will be publishing draft 2 on Wattpad as I write it. I hope to publish once a week on Tuesday, maybe also Thursday if I feel good about the material. 25 chapters total plus one epilogue, all similar in length to Chapter 1. Any suggestion and support will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, the real jonbrain]
