Those who left didn't teach the next generation about it. BOOM! history erased. It's happened in real life more than once.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

They supposedly left cause they didnt like what was going on in their society.

Those who dont know their own history are doomed to repeat it.

1 + 1 = 2

IE, still losers.

(yes, Im mostly kidding, but then Im not that big of a fan of anthro-cats, or anthro-much-of-anything for that matter, and I think its funny)

You got the quote wrong. It's: "Those who do not LEARN from history are doomed to repeat it."

It doesn't really require you to teach your descendants why you want them to do things a certain way, but it works better if you teach them why.

Since STO doesn't have permission to use the Kzinti, we have Ferasans. And since Ferasans are a STO creation, the background story can be whatever the heck they like.
Kzinti are also in SFB...but they never made it to SFC...had to change the name to Mirak.

Actually.... SFB had a HORIBBLE rendition of the Kzinti. I blame SFB for why the Niven estate stopped letting CBS use the Kzinti.

anyone realize that this whole thing is pretty much a carbon copy of the Vulcan/Romulan Diaspora?

Philosophical differences force one group to move away from another and settle far away from the other.

The history is eventually forgotten, giving us the current situation.

Using the Vulcan/Romulan separation as a model could we not expect at some point in the future a Caitain/Ferasan reunification?
