Chapter 1The BondThis bond between Alpha and Omega was very strong. The two had many characteristicsthat were the same. Each had strong leaders, religion, methods of doing things and adesire to keep all humans safe in their universes. How they became the powers in their universe was much different. Alpha was developed from the old Earth. Omega startedfrom a planet in what was called the old worlds. Cloned humans populated both inmajority. That was a unique way of gaining citizens. But these humans were very welleducated and carried high IQ’s. Normal human vices were just not found in this group.The two worlds did not allow people to own land or businesses. They were given to eachmarried couple for their lifetimes. But when both had died it returned to the governmentfor reassignment to another couple. Each family had a high income and accumulation of great wealth was just not allowed. Where on most planets the rich got richer that was nothappening here. People all made good money that allowed them to live very well. You just could not make money for the sake of becoming super rich. A person had one farm, business or manufacturing plant. Everyone made someplace around five hundredthousand credits each year. There were no taxes, inflation or other ways to take the peoples incomes. Money was made to allow families to enjoy life.The work on these planets was not hard labor, as robotic machines were used for the hardwork. People did the planning and the machines did the work. This allowed a lot of timefor things people enjoyed doing. Much time was spent learning about new ways andmethods to make things even more efficient. Most worked a twenty to thirty hour week and spent weekends enjoying resorts or the many events.Another thing that made them so much alike was the drive for education. All most everyfarmer had a lab, businesses had models to guide their buying and manufacturing wasalways looking for that new invention or idea. People spent immense amounts of timedeveloping new things. Most farms had a small truck farm garden to allow them to spenda day at small markets. These farmers markets were places to talk with other farmers andwith customers. Many a good idea was tossed out by a customer during a stop by afavorite seller.People here were friendly and helped each other with any project they had. Stores wereoften remodeled and customers would offer to help. These people just did not see anyreason not to help their friends and neighbors.Omega after fifty years of close relationships had finally merged with three newer planets, to become the Omega system. That was a shock to the old world planets, butthere was nothing they could do. Space belonged to Space Command and Omega wastheir home planet.
