After the Great Crash, many colonies were in chaos and the jump gate network, which used to be controlled by an Earth-based organization, was not maintained anymore and slowly decayed. Representatives of the seven official human colonies got together and created SevCol. SevCol was formed to promote economic, political and social cooperation, peace and security between the colonies, and to ensure harmonious prosperity for human kind. Additionally, SevCol oversees the expansion and maintenance of the Jump Gate network and provides training and certification for spacecraft crews.
Sevcol is administered by the SevCol Council, consisting of five delegates from each colony and currently serves to promote interplanetary co-operation and prevent conflict between the colonies. It also has a firm hold on all interplanetary space travel, as all crews must be approved by the SevCol Certification Board.
