“Among the first to regain the knowledge of FTL travel was famous engineer and founder of The Katya Thorsen Institute of Technology and Research, Katya Thorsen. Renowned for her hard work patching up the UCSS Ships numerous times over the course of the exodus, the tireless engineer didn't stop at the final hurdle, but rather saw Terra Libreta as a new challenge, putting her knowledge and skills to use in aiding the development of the new UFTL Ships and the general infrastructure of the settlement.
“Today, The Katya Thorsen Institute of Technology and Research is known as a beacon of hope for those first settlers and is a respected institute where any engineer worth their tools and grease has studied for at least 3 years.”
- An extract from the Introduction of A quick guide to FTL, 2159
To truly understand,
You must build foundations.
All knowledge comes from all knowledge,
And from knowledge comes undertanding.
