Formation of the Confederacy

Even though the Chattergee-Haque fast as light drive had allowed humanity to settle over a thousand star systems by 1800A.H. because the Drive was limited to the speed of light and the vast distances between star systems, Interstellar government was impossible and each star system was on its own. Even trade between star systems was out of the question.

Then on the Planet Kalimantan Prime in the year 1837 A.H. all of this changed. Professor Hassan Nashashibi of the university of New Benjarmasin completed the greatest invention in transportation science since the wheel, the Nashashibi Worm drive or as it is more commonly known as Worm Drive. The Worm drive powered by a Sun burst fusion reactor allowed man to travel distances in mere hours that had taken years by opening up a worm hole between two points in space.

The first trip was to the nearby star system of New Malaysia. The Authorities on New Malaysia were amazed by this new star drive. The First Citizen of New Malaysia, Zainab Muhammed, quickly got the crew of the ship to agree to carry back several representatives of New Malaysia, who upon arriving on Kalimantan Prime negotiated a trade agreement and a mutual defense pack. This was followed several months later by a technology exchange program. This was the beginning of the Confederation of Islamic Worlds.

Within several years the Confederation had all the ethnic Malay worlds and had devised a standard treaty for each world to ratify to join the Confederation. Afterwards The Confederation sent representatives to New Kurdistan, Turkmen Prime and dozens of other predominantly Muslim star systems. The urge to reconnect with humanity and the prospect of trade and new technology and all but a very few joined.

Soon ships with worm drives were sliding into star systems nearly everywhere that Humanity had settled. At first the Confederation exclusively had the worm drive, but this was not to last for more than a dozen years. Scientists on New Guangxi by carefully monitoring star ships every time they activated their worm drives were able to conclude how the drive worked and in seven years they successfully tested their own worm drive. The leaders of Vert were not so subtle and simple seized one and reversed engineered the worm drive. Later agents of Nuevo Amazonas were able to steal plans for the worm drive from Vert Prime. With the Genie out of the bottle scientists and engineers were able to compare notes and even more powerful and efficient worm drives were built.

This of course also led to the formation of the Celestial Alliance, the Frankish Empire, the Nuevo Federation, and numerous smaller interstellar groups like the Shiite systems Alliance, the Unity of Saints and the Federation of Free Worlds.
The invention of the worm drive also led to a huge amount of trading in technological and scientific information and the 3rd expansion of humanity into space.
