"Refight the first insterstellar war of Freespace"
Wouldn't that be the Ancient-Shivan war?

Maybe the first known interstellar war in the FS universe, but since Humans didn't participate the TV war is still the first one for us, apart from the unification, but since it's all in one starsystem it's "just" a local war one could argue.
Besides you are there in the unification war in TVWP...

Re: "Refight the first insterstellar war of Freespace"
What if there had been countless races, stretching back into infinity... and like the nine cities of Troy, each civilization had been built on the rubble of the one that came before, each annihilated by the Shivans.

Where would you start?

Sometime a bit after the Big Bang. Then the first Shivan atoms nuke some other atoms.

Re: "Refight the first insterstellar war of Freespace"
The US Civil War is commonly referred to as the first "modern" war.

The "modern era" started after the end of the middle ages (Renaissance was "early modern").

Therefore the US Civil War could not be the first modern war because there were plenty of wars in the modern period before it.

You see how ridiculous semantics can become?

Re: "Refight the first insterstellar war of Freespace"
I have changed the forum description anyway.

(And I seem to remember someone getting all mad at the new description and posting about it in Hosted Support, but I can't find any such post.  Maybe I imagined it... :nervous:)

It's a little known fact that the Ancient-Shivan "war" was in fact, a police action.  :nervous:

No it wouldn't. The Ancients monologues suggest they fought and subjugated species before the Shivans. But the shivans were the only ones they ever retreated against.
