“Citizens of the Empire, Peoples of the Federation, the Alliance and those from the Independent worlds. I call out to you at a time of great galactic turmoil.
Our great organisations have a bloody history, but we had achieved a relative peace; an understanding between the Empire, the Federation and the Alliance.
But now our leaders have fallen to fighting and squabbling over territory, waging petty wars, wasting lives and resources, setting sibling against sibling, parent against child… and for what? A few lines on a chart; gains and successes that are wiped out within days. Thousands have already died in the name of these Powers.
Surely humanity is better than this? Can we not build a stronger future, one that we can all be proud of? Can we not choose peace?
Our peoples all suffer under their leadership. I know there are many of you who desire peace and would take a stand against this infighting. Who no longer wish to be pawns in their game.
You know me. I was once a Senator of the Empire. I released my home-world from the blight of those that would subdue it, now I would see all people free from manipulation and exploitation.
I call for those who would resist the powers; the lone-wolf fighters, those who have lost their home-worlds, the disaffected, those just trying to make a living in the void and feel forced to take a side, those who see the false promises and futility of supporting these people and to all who have suffered at their deeds. Those who wished our history might unfold… another way.
Know there are those who care about your peril, that would show concern for your losses and who share your fears for the future.
Now is the time. Show the void there is an alternative to the constant Pyrrhic ‘victories’ we endure week after week as systems are taken and lost at the whim of those who care nothing for the plight of those affected.
Fight for freedom, fight for peace and fight for a stable and prosperous future for your children and your children’s children.
Join us. Become a child of Raxxla.”
Our origins, and Salomé’s first encounter with the Children of Raxxla have been archived by one Commander Alessia Verdi, where she provides details about our leaders, members and answers some questions that have gone previously unanswered in the Elite Universe’s Official Lore. Please, we encourage you to take the time to enjoy the below piece of writing. We promise you won’t regret it.

Commander Thorn’s Call to Awareness
The Children of Raxxla are an Elite Group of pilots; wise, learned and with many years experience of combat.
We have all witnessed the lies and obfuscations of the Federation, the Empire and the Alliance. We intend to solve the mysteries of the Universe and bring an end to the secrecy and conspiracy that is prolific within each of our governments.
Despite our governments best intentions, you will have heard the rumours of the ‘Unknown Artefact’. Whatever its provenance, one thing remains evident as a result of that discovery. While ours leaders vie for power and distract the masses with their entertainment opiates of choice, promoting their own agendas and personal progression, it is clear humanity is not alone.
The last time our governments deceived the populous, they created a shadowy organisation called INRA and murdered anyone who sought a peaceful solution with an alien race – the Thargoids. Our governments were guilty of genocide – the attempted destruction of the Thargoids via a deadly ‘Mycoid’ virus.
And yet so many of you trust these leaders with your pledges and your service.
Of course, they claimed they acted in self-defence. What we can reveal to you now is that they instigated the fight and turned down numerous attempts from the Thargoids to make peace. Yes, it an uncomfortable truth for many of you – Federation, Imperial, Alliance or Independent. We, humans, were the aggressors and the villains of the piece. We were all culpable.
What will be the ramifications of those actions in the future? No one truly knows… but what is certain is that humanity must be prepared and act in unison, not fractured by petty politics or distracted by gladiatorial games so like those of ancient Earth.
Our governments have shown themselves to be unfit to hold sway over the galaxy. Weakened and corrupt, their time is at an end. It is time to turn the page. We cannot afford for them to be our ambassadors. Humanity deserves better.
The Children of Raxxla intend to transcend the powers and the governments. We seek to act above and beyond the petty squabbles of the Core Worlds. We seek peaceful co-operation with any alien life that is out there. We are a beacon of civilisation in the darkness.
We, truly, intend to be Elite – in its purest sense – the best humanity can be. If exploration thrills you, and politics sickens you, you have found your home. Yet, know that while we may be a beacon in the darkness, we can extinguish that flame and use the shadows to our advantage; unafraid of using force when necessary.
Throw away the shackles. The Children of Raxxla welcome you.
