History[edit | edit source]
Before their species became extinct, a number of Preservers established a facility on Lae'nas III where they could enter stasis and wait for the day when their 'children' - the humanoid races that would evolve on worlds that the Preservers had seeded with life - would discover them. This Preserver Archive would fade into mythology along with the Preservers themselves. Stories of the Archive would eventually become part of the Deferi culture in rhymes and songs.
In 2409, the Breen Thot Trel would learn of the Deferi stories and, believing the Preserver Archive to hold ancient weapons, would begin a campaign against the Deferi with the intent of using them to find the Archive.
