The L.N.S. Genesis was an interstellar sleeper colony ship constructed around 2551 and 2564. The ship was originally proposed by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs director, Emanuele Gionata, as an interstellar colony vessel, designed for the purposes of ensuring a new home for humanity. When the 2 Hour War exploded, most of the records from the Genesis were lost, and as a result, it was not until 2547, when some of the records were discovered in the ruins of the long abandoned Baikonur Cosmodome in Greater Kazakhstan, as well as the remains of the old UN Office for Outer Space Affairs in the nation-state of the Kingdom of Venice, and Cape Canaveral in the Republic of Florida. It began construction on 2551, following 4 years of planning and redesign. It took the efforts of many nations, and large corporations to ensure its construction and after a long and rigorous selection process, the ship's colonists and crew were finally launched in 2564, and in doing so, the L.N.S. Genesis departed on its long journey throughout the stars. Around 2800, after 236 years travelling through space, the ship was hit by a reactor malfunction. What exactly caused the malfunction is unknown, but it could have had been almost certain by most colonists that it was sabotage, while others seem to point out at micrometeorites. Regardless of this, many attempts at repair ended in disaster, and when Captain Li Yiang is assassinated, the crew of the Genesis begin to form the 7 factions currently on Gliese 667C c today. The ship was destroyed over geocentric orbit around Gliese 667C c, as the escape pods broke away from the ship.
