During the many years of the Long Silence, the people and governments of the Verge banded together for protection, economics, and self-interest. Most of the time, this simply meant that Vergers politely shared information with one another. The governments attempted to keep abreast of events, alerting their dtizens whenever a threat manifested in a system. Clear examples of this teamwork appeared in response to the dvil war in the Algemron system and the destruction of Silver Bell A cry went out loud and dear: Vergers should avoid these systems.
In most instances, looking out for one’s neighbors never became a real matter of trusting them, but rather of needing them to live and prosper. Many of the colonies exist on worlds that can’t sustain independent growth without trade.
