Eve Online has an enormously deep back story and body of lore about the game. Over 15 years of development by CCP, chronicles, books, fan fiction, web sites and in game events. The list is endless and covers over 12,000 years of transhuman history, depending on how you look at it. Its incredibly difficult to work out how to tackle it, both for the novice player trying to understand it, and for myself, working out how to explain it. Its safe to say that this page will undergo a lot of transition as I develop my ideas.
The Triglavians are the most recent addition to Eve, and also one of the oldest too in some ways, and therefore possibly a good starting point.
