This is going to be a screenshot-heavy AAR of my first Stellaris playthough, 2.2.0-2.2.1, Admiral difficulty, Glavius' AI (both the game and the mod versions changed during the playthough).
_______

Chancellor Reti listened to the news with great interest. Finally, Wessari scientists developed engines capable of utilizing the naturally-occurring hyperlane network. There were many Chancellors before him - some, like Muna, daughter of Sark, who set up the stage for the Unification of Orassia, with many monuments in Wessari cities across the globe, some mere footnotes in history books. Now he was going to be remembered as the first Chancellor to preside over interstellar expansion.



Now Wessari institutes could be freed to conduct more research.



While cabinet eggheads were busy working on the ground, the adventurous Fura prepared for a Wessari ship's first travel by hyperlanes.



The discovery of a precursor civilization shocked the Wessari. Most Wessari admired its racial diversity, remembering the devastating Great Fur Color Wars that took place on Orassia centuries before the Unification, yet others insisted that this might have been the reason for its demise.



With its natural beauty, Orassia was fit to be the capital of an interstellar nation.



If some sceptics still doubted the existence of the First League, this new discovery made by Fura provided additional evidence of sentient life once existing beyond Orassia. But does it exist now?...



Beautiful as Orassia's natural landscape was, Chancellor Reti could not ignore the need for industrial development.



With the Wessari visiting distant stars not so long ago thought inacessible, the existence of slums and desperate poverty on Orassia was impossible to ignore. Reti swore that by the end of his mandate, all slum inhabitants will be resettled in comfortable new homes.



Many young Wessari started to sign up for space research and colonization, as the "Space Craze" gripped Orassia.



Their most ardent yearning was finding actually existing alien life beyond their home planet.

These were the times where each year brings new surprises and wonders. Khamb, one of the hyperlane-accessible systems turned out to contain habitable planets.



Even the seemingly inhabitable one turned out to contain some life, although definitely not of the sapient variety.



Khamb III was a planet of near-permanent frost. Its scarce vegetation and sickly lifeforms made it less pleasant than cold-latitude Orassia in winter. But Khamb I was a delightful planet, very similar to Orassia itself.



And thus, first colony ships, filled with most adventurous and courageous Wessari, began their journey...



Space exploration was yielding more and more surprising benefits. Math departments, which were feeling left out, started to harvest its benefits, too.



First step on Khamb Prime. One small step for Wessari, one large leap for Wessarikind.





On Orassia, fiction novels and scientific speculation on the nature of the galaxy reached near-histrionic levels. 99% of Wessari cast their electronic ballots to dedicate more and more resources to space exploration.



Chancellor Reti's retirement was a grand, widely-attended ceremony, which was untypical for an average chancellor. But due to his unusual dedication to his people and the monumental events that took place during his tenure, Reti would be remembered as far from being average.



The discovery of the First League's prison colonies was rather grim. Of course, as Wessari anarchists pointed out, Orassia still had prisons of its own, even if they were far less brutal than the First League's complex appeared to be.

Jor Mon Dir was the opposite of Khamb III, which, however, didn't make it a welcoming planet, either.



All Wessari were grateful that Orassia didn't have such water-absorbent soil as the soil on Saphiban V.



The Wessari government, due to all the unavoidable expenditures associated with space colonization, started to have energy problems. Fortunately, the new program of selling off alloys on the internal market managed to keep the plants running.

And people on the forums complain about not having enough alloys...



More tragic fates in space. It seemed that space is a setting more suitable for tragedy than comedy - at least, so far.



In less enlightened times, long before Wessari discovered electricity, comets were considered to be bad omens. Some Wessari noblemen even unsuccessfully attempted to make their peasants stop looking at the sky. It's so good that in the enlightened times of space colonization, Wessari have no need to fear comets and don't even have nobles anymore.



Unlike comets, asteroids, if sufficiently large, can still be dangerous.



Not that it would prevent politically-minded Wessari from organizing for justice.



Even asteroids turn out for good. Maybe not everything in space is tragic, after all.



More habitable planets - sadly, without sentient life.



Or, maybe, the Wessari were actually lucky not to encounter any sentient life in the galaxy so far? Evidence of the First League being locked in a struggle versus other sapient aliens pointed to this direction. This topic was widely discussed in newspaper articles and talk shows both on Orassia and Khamb.

The crystalline caverns of Esmyke IVa were important for the planet being considered a major colonization target.



More evidence of sapient life in the galaxy, but once again far away.



Something needed to be done with Wessari deficit of energy. Construction of new generators was overseen by Governor Sagg.



Finally, sapient life, in the form of strange space ships.



They turned out to be a small people of nomadic caravan traders, not a planet-inhabiting urban culture like the Wessari. Still, the discovery of first sentient alien life was a major sensation in the Wessari Star Accord (this name was chose in a referendum held across two Wessari-settled planets).



The Wessari were not superstitious or afraid of ancient curses. How else they could reach the stars in the first place?



In fact, recent space discoveries only increased the Wessari materialism and scientism.



As some of the more cynical Wessari predicted, the negative consequences of meeting alien life didn't take too long to manifest themselves.



Still, most Wessari were still eager to expand into the unknown.



News of more First League artifacts recovered only increased their natural curiosity.

With immediate star systems discovered, Wessari Science Collegiate felt more comfortable delegating exploration tasks to the AI.



Who would have thought it possible that a mere medical complex can produce something as magnificient as a gas giant?



New, fascinating discoveries each year. Will the wonders never cease?



Wessari scientists discover more evidence of once-existing advanced space civilizations, but are Wessari the only one existing at present?



Robots and L-gates. These terms would make no sense to the Wesari of hundreds of years ago, but today, every Wessari schoolchild reads comic books about them.



The Wessari planets were shaken with a new discovery of a vessel in Josq Fomat. It appeared to be manned, and of a higher civilizational level than travelling caravaneers...




At last. A true space civilization, a rather strange one. Its representative scoffed at the notions of "rule by the people" and "freedom", yet he didn't seem to be hostile, and was clearly as fascinated by the discovery as the Wessari were.



Their space lay quite far away from the Wessari Star Accord. What could this encounter mean for the Wessari? Cooperation and friendship? Rivalry and hostility? War and death?



The Commonwealth of Draipol shared news about another minor civilization, the one of - or, at least, run by - strangely artistic large cockroaches.



I hope their performances don't include eating audience members that seem bored.

Hah - cockroach Artists are quite funny
This is a part of what makes Stellaris fun.
_____
Now Wessari knew roughly how often habitable world appear in the galaxy. They also knew that many of them contain life - some of it sapient. Greater questions of ultimate purpose still troubles them, even if most of them long ago stopped believing in souls and deities.



Governor Sene's "robot worker" program passed only by 1% of the vote. Most Wessari believed
that labor is what gives nobility to a sapient being - as long as there isn't too much of it.



It was quite humbling to realize that Wessari can't even ensure their own immortality, much less the immortality of other species like the xenophilic and hospitable Vun-Okons.



The Gottara system was revealed to have a real abundance of habitable planets.



As dignified as Wessari researchers were, some of them still couldn't help themselves but try chasing their own tails in zero-G environments.



Unknown and strange hostile vessels were spotted in one of the systems under investigation by science ships.



The new discovery on Gottara III encouraged those who believed that the abundance of habitable planets in the system is no accident, but a part of some greater intelligence' plan. As a materialist people, the Wessari attributed the plan to unknown alien entities, not to gods or spirits.



Could this mysterious ancient structures have something to do with it?



Some scientists die on the job. Others, the luckier ones, get research done. The galaxy is rich and full of wonders - and it's also dark and full of terrors.



It's also full of abandoned amusement parks, like a ghost city.



In fact, considering the amount of derelict, abandoned items floating there, this isn't that bad a metaphor.



The Wessari and the Vun-Okons of the Draipol could not be the only sapients in the galaxy. Most Wessari felt that meeting new space civilizations was only a matter of time.



This humanoid phenotype has half of its people look like satyrs, half like caricatures of Stalin.



The Velutari were also friendly, with a daring research spirit somewhat akin to the Wessari.



They also revealed the existence of other, less friendly space civilizations. The Wessari debated whether you need to reach a certain level of societal enlightenment to reach the stars.





The drones were fascinating. Lethal and annoying, yes, but still fascinating.



The Wessari were indeed lucky to have such pleasant galaxical neighbors.



It's a good thing that the Tarblac didn't achieve sentience. Imagine malevolent, sentient shimmering creatures going around causing dread.



Despite misgivings, the Robot program continued on Khamb Prime.



Cooperation is what would ensure the continued progress of the sapient life.



On the First Intergalactiv Conference, all sapients agreed on the need to regulate the galactic market. The only question remaining was the place of its hub.



The ruthless capitalists of Jogollwa corporation were determined to gain this honor for themselves.



Another sad fate of a creature in space...



Who would have thought that the Vun-Okons, with their frail limbs, actually possess superwessari strength? A stark reminder that Orassian physics assumptions often don't work in the wider galaxy.



"United we stand, divided we fall". A saying valid everywhere - from playgrounds, to space, to space playgrounds.

Despite all the new discoveries, some Wessari scientists fell into depression upon realizing how many things they still do not know and cannot create. Who would have thought that a previous space civilization had crystal-building nanites?



As suits their unpleasant natures, the Sek-Lokkar and the Tiyal were fighting over a couple of planets. How such aggressive bullies ever managed to reach the stars in the first place remained a mystery.

More aggreessive-minded Wessari had to content themselves with exterminating ancient mining drones.




Old, cynical political tracts still have their value - in a monetary sense.



Celebrations were held on the opening of the Orassian Intergalactic Stock Exchange. Phenotypes and tongues freely intermingled, buying, selling, speculating and going bankrupt from investing too much into CaravanCoins.



Did the space civilization working on nanites have some kind of enhanced eyesight? This could be the explanation why they managed to do such feats with them.



Another space nation was contacted through rescuing a space ship with a sick crew. So far, the observation that the farther away the neighbors, the less pleasant they are, has proved true.




The Sek-Lokkar seemed to be obsessed with humiliating their enemies.



Previous Wessari bureaucracy, relatively "light" and controlled from below, suited the needs of Wessari society on Orassia. However, with the growing Wessari Star Accord, it needed to be expanded.

Come to space for the sense of wonder, stay for drive-by shootings.



The losses incurred while fighting the Drones made Vun-Okons of Draipol feel more arrogant toward us. No war declaration followed the Wessari refusal to become Draipol vassal, but this suggestion was certainly a warning sign.




The Wessari had to ensure their independence by signing a defensive pact.



While this may have stopped whatever aggressive designs other empires had on them, this didn't stop the insults.



Hopefully, the new ships of advanced design would improve Wessari galaxy standing.



Khamb Prime was quickly becoming a major industrial planet, as important to the Wessari as Orassia.



The discovery of an advanced pre-sentient species in the Paggol system confirmed the theories of Wessari scientists who expected encountering species of different development levels in the galaxy.



The Paggol system was notable in more ways than one.



The discovery of the Mechazur machine empire was wondrous, but also frightening. Despite being clearly a bit worn-down, their spaceship armies dwarfed whatever the Wessari could recruit. At least, the robots themselves insisted that they are here only to defend from a mysterious threat.

The Vun-Okons, actually ;) They live on planet Draipol. Makes some sense - humans don't live on planet Hummus, after all.
________

More neighbors - this time, another "minor nation" dispersed among several stations across the galaxy. High Curator Bufgha looks like someone more likely to suck the brain out of your skull, than to fill it with any kind of useful knowledge, confirming the truism that first appearances can be deceiving.



In fact, once you get past the "sucking maw for face" thing the Curators have, they can be quite charming. Unless the maw symbolizes their demands for money...



But the Wessari researchers are no slouches, either - they've managed to develop new solar cells from small pre-sapient life encountered on a distant planet.



In fact, due to this and the one-time influx of energy from abandoned geothermal extractors, the energy situation of the Wessari Star Accord is quite good. But other space empires are still more powerful than it.



There was a debate among Wessari sociologists as to whether the Raxycodium Commonwealth confirms or denies the "the farther away, the less pleasant" principle. On the one hand, they weren't slaving despots like the Bokasherans, but on the other hand, they were far more xenophobic.


Their name list is quite cute, though... I think it's Plantoid 3.

One thing was sure - this part of the galaxy was definitely less friendly than the one Wessari were located in.



Khamb Secundus is a cold, bleak place, but even so, the more adventurous Velutarians migrate to there. I guess, as erudite explorers, they are interested in research opportunities.


These pop portraits really need to be a bit larger. There's space for it in the interface.


More advances in Wessari research and exploration.



Being open-minded to different perspectives means being more effective in your politics.




The Tiyanki are docile, gentle creatures. In a galaxy full of xenophobes and slave-owners, they are truly a relief.



At least, in addition to xenophobes, it has a fair share of extremophiles.



A recently colonized tropical planet revealed to the Wessari the techniques of building cruisers.



The Wessari Star Accord expanded its reach and influence. But it was still a bit behind other young powers of the galaxy - and still far behind the Ul-Tur Remnant.

Oh, the Wessari are a patient people... as well as egalitarian and xenophile. I wonder, how many people's first Stellaris playthrough is with "likeable" species and traits, and how many go directly for the insectoid slaver evil overlords or something.
____________

While some Wessari scientists felt it a bit unseemly to, as they put it, "rummage in the space trash", most felt that material and scientific benefits from it outweigh the costs.



The authorities from the Migration Ministry were surprised to have a small number of Tiyal immigrants wishing to find a refuge in the Wessari Star Accord. The refugees explained that they were escaping the oppressive, theocratic Tiyal Mandate government.


Note that the Velutarians have Tropical as their climate preference. This would greatly help in colonizing the corresponding planets.

The nanites prove to be more and more fascinating.



The new discovery of a drifted ship was quite grim, but its engine study provided permanent benefits to the Wessari Star Accord.



The whole of Wessari people were saddened by the death of their kidnapped brothers and sisters.


Does this event chain have a potential positive outcome at all?

The next war between the Sek-Lokkar and the Tiyal was more fruitful in regards to systems changing limbs.



The Wessari government was forced to buy more consumer goods for its increasingly large and diverse population.



In a major diplomatic accomplishment, after certain gifts from Wessari alloy industry, the Velutarians and the Vun-Okons agreed to join the Wessari in a federation, the Star Entente. The Vun-Okons were forced to admit that although they didn't like Wessari democratic system, it's not as bad as it initially seemed to them.



May the Star Entente never fall, even as it goes through tribulations. May it stand against aggression and all kinds of atrocities.

Nice to organise the Federation.

I have never seen a positive Ransomeer outcome.
