Welcome! I am Professor John Chen, and I have the distinct honor and privilege of narrating this very important historical era to you. I hope to be your leader, intellectual canvass, and friendly companion down a journey through the past, starting in the year 1990 and ending in the present day. Together, we will be investigating the astounding changes in global society that occurred during the dawn of the new millennium. We will witness the horrors of World War Three, the bloodiest war in human history, and the subsequent rise of the Reformed United Nations in the aftermath. We will relive the devastation caused by the environmental changes that shaped our world so harshly. We will walk with the refugees who were displaced by the omnipresent destruction that surrounded them, many of whom were our ancestors and the ancestors of other famous and important figures. We shall see the heroic efforts of the men and women who dedicated their lives to saving humanity through these dark times, each in their own special (and often shocking) ways. We shall witness the final violent triumph of the RUN over the nation states that survived these events. And finally we will admire humanity’s first steps into the stars.

Now, a disclaimer. Yes, this course and my university are both funded and operated by the RUN. But this is a historical lesson, and not at all uncritical propaganda, to be consumed and accepted without question: we will be covering the good and bad of every player on the world stage, and I would like to personally invite each of you to debate and discuss what is said here on the university forums and enrich us all with your perspective. This is also not meant to be an exhaustive encyclopedia of history: some details are too obscure and minute for this lesson. It is merely meant to be a preliminary guide for the uninitiated to understand how the world became as it is today. If you are curious and wish to learn more about something you feel we have not covered to your liking, we enthusiastically encourage you to investigate further. Feel free to contact the history department to get access to our wide array of primary resources and information databases; I would be more than happy to help.

Now, we will take a vote. What would you like to learn? If you all have no preference, we will take it from the beginning, with the disintegration of the Soviet Union in Eurasia.

Would you mind if this sold across the Galaxy as some form of entertainment?
