So I am guessing we will have another time skip for the new story. It would probally start just before the arrival of the consortium colony fleet. While larger than the syndicate fleet in numbers, the locals would all be fitted with torsion diffusers in their ships, as well as their own version of inter phased armor. Unlike the the syndicates, they are far more dependent on the torsion weapon systems, so their offensive capabilities have been largely removed.
They would have had time to plan where and how the colony fleet would be dealt with, possibly even preparing planets to recieve new settlers. The colony fleet would have brought a wider scientific and technological database than a military force. Look at what the Karrines have shared with the academy salvaged from enemy ships and computers. The thing is I think the consortium is aware and capable of producing a working FTL system, so they could at some point deploy that or share it with the syndicates. The indictor technology is exceptionally useful in campaigns against the enemy, but even a slow FTL system would be a huge counter, if it allows them to tactically remove ships from indictored space or enter it. It was said to be so,e kind of mass altering energy field I think. The biggest long term threat is the introduction of more energy beings, while they can be limited by the shamans, they could still be trouble.
During the short peace, jack interface tech, bionoids be used and interphase do armor and torsion diffusers would have spread to every allied ship. The confederation and coalition has likely grown, they might not match the enemy in sheer numbers but they definitly would be capable of punching above their weight class. The Karrines would have outfitted their whole fleet with their viable intergalactic engines, as well as set up a number of wormhole portal stations, allowing for planetary and space based mini wormholes not dependent on a set of pair gates. Jason himself might have progressed further along the path of shamans. We will also see the effects of more non Karrine generations out in the universe.
I have long wondered if they could make an improved system to reach the dreams of the oracles, via jack interfaces enhancing the mind and machine link as well as an enhanced virtual reality. Now I wonder could the dreamers benefit from the teachings of the shamans. The shamans were aware of far more than most, this might aid the oracles awareness of the future.
I wonder if they have yet assaulted the dreamers prison or are they yet in the planning stages. We know there is apparently another benga fleet being prepared, set to arrive after the upcoming colony fleet. So if the dreamers are dealt with quickly, that fleet could be peacefully turned back, ordered by their commands who are forced to deal in a universe where they can't depend on precogs to aid them.
The general plan was to create a disaster so terrible that the dreamers would see all syndicate forces in their system destroyed, forcing the benga to flee and leave the dreamers to be destroyed. Then when they are removed as a threat, an indictor field would be set up and a stargate set. The dreamers would then be evacuated back to allied space, denying the benga an invaluable resource forcing them to at least temporarily put their expansionist plans on the back burned. They likely would try to find ways around it, but with star gates and the intergalactic engines, the Karrines and kimdori could potentially keep them in check. So the disaster needs to be so,etching they can control at any time, an extra ordinary fake out or simply a way to move an entire species between galaxies at super speed.
