Primary Human Technology in the Light WarsMag Cannon: The primary armament of older military ships of human make. It functions of the principals of magnetically propelling a projectile, hence its full name, the Linear Magnetic Spectra Weapons System. It uses a series of electromagnetic chargers set along the inside of the barrel to guide and accelerate a several ton, modular projectile. While most people think this is all it does, the cannon actually fires the rounds with a chemical blasting charge, then increases the velocity through the use of magnetics. Where the real power of the weapon comes into play is in the low-power Spectra Drive affixed to the end of the barrel. The drive can be activated in situations where adverse firepower is needed, or the range is so great the round needs an absurd amount of speed. Instead of passing out of the muzzle and into the vacuum of space, the round is subjected to a Spectra Interface Field and is pulled into the relative space/time state that all objects in Spectra demonstrate.

Syllvin SystemIn the year 2736, the Terran Alliance of Planets was the major human government. The Alliance consisted of roughly 128 systems that were colonized by humans, from small agrarian colonies to major shipping ports. Earth had become too crowded and lacked the resources to sustain the population any longer, so the human capital was relocated to a planet in the Tau Ceti system, which was named Terra. The TAP had advanced technology, such as jump engines and laser weaponry.
One of the most valuable, but most distant systems was 357-Sylvan, later renamed Syllvin. It contains an abnormal galactic feature in that it has over a dozen planets orbiting the binary stars Syllvin and Arole, and each of these planets has at least 3 moons. This feature, coupled with the two asteroid belts, made Syllvin one of the most populous systems in the TAP. Terra-forming occurred to a very high degree there.
In 2821, the local government of Syllvin launched a coup of the TAP's military forces and Governor. Using m
List of Human Ships in the Light UniverseFederation Warships-
Federation warships are the spoils of their overthrow of the TAP in the system. They have no way of producing ships like them from raw materials and are stuck with the ships they were able to take from the Terran Navy before the latter retreated. Therefore, naval docks are under heavy guard and require special government access to fly near. Most of their names are derived of important battles that occurred when humans were still confined to their own planet. The ships of the Federation Fleet are larger then their older counterparts, with laser weapons and curved white hulls.
