Long Night

(-1776 to 0) The period of interstellar decline and anarchy between the fall of the Rule of Man (also known as the Second Imperium) and the establishment of the Third Imperium by Cleon I.

It was a period where worlds were cut off from one another, technology was lost and the population on many worlds simply failed to survive. Even though the Long Night “ended” over one thousand years ago, the galaxy is only just emerging from this period.

The concept of the Long Night is more than a little centered on the Imperium. Other major races (Aslan, K’kree, etc.) were not affected by the decline of the Second Imperium, nor were other branches of humaniti which were not part of the Imperium.
