Who are the Freyans?
The Freyans could be the nicest or nastiest people in the known universe.
Although some people emigrated directly from Earth, most Freyans, what became known as the Core Group, originated from the habitats of Mars. They spent three generations there, the atmosphere of Mars qualified as an industrial grade vacuum on Earth. What came forth from Mars were some of the toughest people in the known universe.
The clerics who ruled the planet Kennedy in the Alpha Centauri system believed that God was on their side. They discovered though direct experience that they were wrong when the Freyans showed up. God, if he existed, stayed out of the Freyans way. During the Kennedy Incident the Freyans came out of the Nuclear Closet. The Racial Collectivists who ruled the planet Null in Procyon system suddenly found themselves on the wrong side of numerous Freyan nuclear weapons.
There was a coup attempt on Freya. The attempted coup on Freya was backed by the MAC-X corporation. The leader of the coup attempt was personally buried alive by Lilith Keller, the last president of the Freyan republic and founder of the Ursa Major Confederation. One of responses to the coup attempt was very nasty. A Freyan Navy task force went to the planet Xenophon in the Epsilon Indi system and bombarded the planet with nuclear weapons. The cities on Xenophon were bombarded with high yield cobalt cased thermonuclear weapons. The weapons the Freyans used made the Soviet Tsar Bomb look wimpy in comparison.
No one messes with the Freyans.
