LOLA CURICH, LIANNA - "Cradle of the Galaxy," a display of pre-Republic era artifacts will begin a Core World museum tour next month, announced the Allied Tion Historical Society. The artifacts, culled from worlds in the Tion Hegemony, date back over 25,000 years to a time pre-dating galactic civilization, when small pocket societies developed unconnected by modern hyperspace transportation or communications.
The largest of these fiefdoms was commanded by the notorious Xim the Despot. Ximology has enjoyed a steady, if small, following, particularly among treasure-seekers who long to find a fabled horde of plunder allegedly hidden by Xim before his death.
The tour, funded by a donations from Republic Sienar Systems, the House of Tion and the House of Cron, includes priceless samples of ancient technology, such as war-robots, beam tubes, and fragments of a jump-gate accelerator. Interpretive holography provides a full-immersion experience, recreating pre-historic vistas such as the epic Third Battle of Vontor.
"I think it's very important now to look back at our pre-Republic roots, and see what a unified civilization has saved us from," said ATHS Director Alreeda Tion-Hyme. The tour begins at Ralltiir on the 1st, and continues up the Perlemian Trade Route, eventually arriving on Coruscant by next year.
