The year is 1840.  Up until this point in history this Earth is identical to our own.  But on July 24th of that year one event would change its reality to make it unrecognizable.  The most notable world event of that day was a bright flash of blue light in the sky.  Astronomers and scientists took it as some sort of natural stellar phenomenon.  Many of faith took it as a sign from their perspective gods and dieties.  In the end the event passed and most returned to their lives.  But not long later in scatered parts of the world, artifacts turned up.  They were later revealed to be some form of technology which certain private and public entities began to reverse engineer into domestic and military use.  In the Dakota Territory meanwhile, a band of Hunkpapa Indians from the Lakota Sioux found the wreckage of some sort of pod from space.  Inside they found what appeared to be an infant of humanoid like alien, of blue skin and strange features.  They believed that he was a gift from the great spirit.  They took the child in and raised him as his own.  They gave him the name Tohca Wicahpi or BLUE STAR. They at first kept him a secret from those outside the tribe.  He grew into adulthood quickly.  When the US Calvary sought revenge for the Grattan Massacre, they sought out Blue Star’s village for retribution.  When they arrived there they were met by Blue Star and witnessed the adopted alien’s power first hand, as he decimated the entire calvary single handed.  The US Government sent in more forces but this only resulted in more casualties!  Finally the government conceeded to a negotiating table, and made a treaty with Blue Star’s band to not encroach on Lakota Territory.  Blue Star also took this time at the negotiations to learn the ways of the white man in both cultural and military power.  Blue Star used his intelect, force of power, and charisma to join the various Lakota factions into one cohesive force.  He established The sovereign nation of LAKOTA, a hybrid european/lakota government with him as head of state,  He saw that if he were to take his adopted people into a feared and respected presence in the world, he would be forced to modernize and industrialize his people into a coherent state.  He did this by sending many of his best and brightest to the finest institutions in Europe and the US.  By 1865 when the civil war ended, Lakota was well on its way to becoming a first class nation, that the US saw as a threat to its dream of “manifest destiny”…
