Several times the Talaxian race has had to fight off attempts of conquest by adversarial races. But they had little choice in surrendering to the Haakonian Order after the deployment of a horrific weapon called the Metreon Cas-cade. The weapon wiped out more than a quarter of a million colonial Talaxians residing on their moon of Rinax. But they have come some way since in negotiating for peace, and healing the wounds of their world. They are a helpful, friendly people who hide their inner scars well, and from those scars they have much to offer in wisdom and counsel.
Overseen by skilled Talaxian mediators, the Interspecies Commune is a friendly resort in the Axiana Lakes, where many races are invited to relax and mingle. It is a chance for old grudges to be smoothed over, and new under-standing to be found, and a valuable opportunity for common ground to be discovered amongst members, and cooperation, which can reduce the potential subversion of foreign propaganda campaigns.
