The planet Torran Prime.

The Torran Empire is located near the Quantum Singularity Network of the Dark Passage. The Torran homeworld is called Torran Prime, though their first colony, Torran King, is at least as well populated as their homeworld. During the First Torran Revolution, they gained control over the planet now called "Torran Electra", when they fought a war against the original inhabitants (Beldorasin and Estaborns), who were then turned into slaves. With the new government system of 2379, those Torrans who did not like the "peaceful ways" of this government, and their application to the Delta Alliance, withdrew and took control over a certain area of the Torran Empire, which the government had no choice but to surrender to them, under which Torran Electra.


Society

A Torran.
Another Torran.

The Torrans are a race of humanoid people that live by their leader. The leader of the Torran Empire is everything they believe in, and he can never do anything wrong in their eyes, no matter what orders he may give. The leader is carefully selected by the Wise, Torran males and females that are over 300 years old.


The ranks in the Torran fleet are named as follows:

  • Royal Fleet Lord
  • Fleet Lord
  • Lord
  • War-Captain
  • Sub Captain
  • Sub Commander
  • Warrior


These Torran fleet rank systems are no longer in use since the new government has been installed in 2379. The exiled area of Torran space, however, still continues to use these ranks.


History

The Torrans achieved warp technology somewhere between 2100 and 2125. Soon thereafter, colonisation began of "Torran King" and entire Torran families moved to this new world, though their expansion in space did not end there. In 2177 the Torrans made contact with "extra-terrestrials" for the first time: the New Humans, the Beldorasin and the Estaborns.


The first Interstellar Torran Revolution began in 2212, when a Torran man named Eltar became the new leader. He intended for the Torran Empire to expand and grow more powerful. He began a war with the Beldorasin, the New Humans and the Estaborns. By the end of this war, the Torrans won against the Beldorasin and the Estaborns, who became slaves in the newly established and expanded Torran Empire. The Torrans were not victorious, however, against the New Humans, who pushed them back to their own space.


The Torrans would not leave things to this, and began to build new starships, designed for Trade and Combat. These ships were mainly intended to guard their hard-won area in space, not for further expansion of their empire.


In 2355 the Torran leader Tompek began a second revolution, when new, improved classes of starships were ordered to be constructed. This time, however, they were not only intended to guard Torran space, but also to start expanding their empire again. Another war was opened against the New Humans, this time with many victorious battles for the Torrans. However, the New Humans fought back with all their might, rendering the war indecisive for many years and with many losses on both sides. In 2378, the Torrans had been able to push back the New Humans at last and the remaining free New Humans retired to the planet Elexsa.


In 2379, the fall of the Torran government system marked the end of the second revolution, and a new Torran government was elected, lead by a Torran man named Mentora, with the intentions to end the war and slaughter. With their more peaceful motives, they applied to become a member of the Delta Alliance, hoping also that this would re-establish their economy. This application was accepted by the Delta Alliance, making the Torrans the 9th member to join. The decision to join the Delta Alliance was not welcomed by some of the Torran military organisations, however, who withdrew to Torran Electera and cut themselves off from the Empire. They are the Torran exiles, still governed by a Leader according to their centuries-old customs and are not considered part of the Delta Alliance.
