A Resolution of Establishment


I, _____, do hereby ordain that when fifty planets have agreed to join in the confederation, _____ shall ratify the entry of _____ into the restored Systems Commonwealth of Andromeda.

We undertake this great leap forward of our own free will and we accept the fundamental values of the Systems Commonwealth: respect for all life-forms, self-determination for sentient beings, and the primacy of basic individual rights. We embrace a simple truth: that galactic civilization can only progress when the many peoples of the stars act as one for the sake of all. We stand with the Commonwealth in the interests of peace and goodwill, and we stand against the powers and principalities that might divide or destroy us.

What we establish today shall not perish from the Universe. Though the stars themselves grow cold and black, the Systems Commonwealth endures - and through it, so shall we.
