Once the war ended, the Peloran and their cousins were alone, surrounded by a sea of death in the stars where two great alien civilizations had once lived. The Albion and Ennead were simply gone, and the surviving supersoldiers began following their deepest orders. The Peloran went in search of forests to live in on the surviving worlds and never came back. They left behind thousands of empty warships in distant orbits and stockpiled their weapons in easily accessed bunkers. The other alien races sat back and watched as the most powerful weapons in the galaxy disarmed themselves by their own choice. They sighed in collective relief and did absolutely nothing to interrupt the process.
