System: D20 Future
The year is 2634. Humanity has made it to the stars. The Jumpgate which was created in 2253 allowed humans to visit other worlds. During the next 3 centuries they discover several of races. Humans were the first to develop intergalactic space travel in 2253. Humans were able to create an artificial wormhole between two points in space. They call these Jumpgates. If took another 60 years before humans met the Fraal a race more advanced than humans but they hadn’t developed faster than light travel. Humans continued to spread out into the galaxy most races technology is on par with humans, some are more primitive and some are more advanced. However Humans are the only race to have intergalactic travel. Earth has traded the technology to the Fraal in exchange for advancements in Starship Engine design. Earth has also traded the technology to other races. As of the current date 2634, a little over half the galaxy has jumpgates. Most ships can travel about 2,500 miles/per second which is roughly a two week trip from Earth to Pluto. Jumpgates emit huge gravity wells as such they are located outside of the star system to not cause damage to nearby planets. Ships are not very well armed, it is not often space battle actually occurs. Ships are still relatively expensive so most pirates and even military try to capture a ship before destroying it.
