You can join the universe by either joining an existing faction as a descendant from one of their colonies or as 'starborn' with no ancestry.
When you join an existing faction you will start as an ensign and have limitations on your activities, until you are promoted by the faction beyond ensign. You can, however, leave the faction at any point and start you own. You can choose your ancestry from any of the factions from the below list.
