youngest and probably least powerful player in current interstellar
politics is the New Systems Commonwealth, yet this fledgling
entity has already made a major mark. This audacious attempt
to restore the once-great Systems Commonwealth is largely
the work of one man-Captain Dylan Hunt, a High Guard captain
recently awakened from three centuries of temporal stasis.
With his powerful starship the Andromeda Ascendant and a
new crew, Captain Hunt is attempting to rebuild the Commonwealth
by recruiting various worlds as well as setting a positive
example through directly combating the chaos and lawlessness
that reigns throughout most of Known Space. Captain Hunt
and his New Commonwealth's accomplishments so far include
smashing the Restorian terrorists, scattering the Nietzschean
pirates of Orca Pride, protecting a Wayist outpost from
slaver attacks, spearheading disaster relief on the Than
world of Pythia, and brokering the merger of Jaguar and
Sabra Prides. Still, the New Commonwealth is for now little
more than one powerful warship and the signature of six
worlds on a piece of paper (signatory worlds include Sinti,
Castalia, Scheherazade Drift, Mobius, Schopenhauer and Enkindu).
It remains to be seen whether it will prove to be yet another
false hope of justice and peace, or a genuine resurrection
of the Commonwealth's former glory.
