Eternal Expansion

The Eternal Expansion is the name for the current time period in the Tysian Sphere, named for the large-scale expansion, conquest and subjagation that has been going on uninterupted since the Enlightenment in 2158.
The Expansion is also part of a quasi-religious belief that the Pontik people will keep on expanding into eternity, and that it is their birthright to rule over the other sentient species of the galaxy. The eternal expansion has been going for over two millenia, but there are signs that it has resulted in the Tys Kril overextending themselves on an unprecedented scale.
