Once there was a great race called [REDACTED]. They were masters of intelligence, knowing the ins and outs of politics, war, and marketing. One day [REDACTED] suggested a plan to [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] would build a set of giant stations from which to spawn test races, thus allowing the [REDACTED] to further their knowledge of the three great sciences. [REDACTED] agreed. Thus, the Halcyon Project was born.
Halcyon 1 was built with variations in mind. The race spawned was doomed to ever revolve around a few phenotypes and never find a totally dominant strain. Halcyon 2 was built with ecology in mind. The race spawned was doomed to ever seek the best living at the least cost while trying to reverse that for everyone else. Halcyon 3 was built with polling in mind. The race spawned was doomed to ever try to predict all aspects of the future, even if no one believed them. Halcyon 4 was built with technology in mind. The race spawned was doomed to iron out bugs and always make another one somewhere in the process.
