The Second Galactic War was in many ways a continuation of the First, involving many of the same participants and grievances. However, unlike the First War, the Second War was conclusive.
Third Galactic War
Main Article: Third Galactic War
The Third Galactic War was a war in which a resurgent Firstborn, eager for blood and vengeance, rallied its allies and embarked on a centuries-long war that restored its position in the galaxy. It was during this galactic war that the Pax Rebellion occurred in the Azaranian Empire, when many races of the empire, taking Commander Paxen Silvis as namesake, rebelled against the Azaranians' policy of Azhuranthia Superiority. For this Reason, the Azaranians withdrew from the conflict to focus inwards, turning the tide in favor of the Firstborn restorationists. Although the Firstborn, even to this day deny any involvement in the formation of the Pax, it is a widely known fact, through leaks and otherwise, that the Firstborn Restorationists were instrumental in giving weapons, supplies, etc.. to the Pax and instigating the rebellion, in an effort to reduce Azaranian involvement. Their Gamble paid off.
Seventh Galactic War
