The Fair Chance Act is a United Empire of Earth (UEE) law passed by the Senate in 2795, in the wake of the Massacre of Garron II (2792). Sponsored by ImperatorErin Toi, it created a new status for planetary systems, Developing system, and added several protections to said systems in order to foster the development of potentially new civilizations. One or more planets in a given system must harbor sentient or potentially sentient life in order to be declared Developing. Contact with the system's inhabitants, terraforming, and mining are prohibited in order to shield the inhabitants from any interference under the assumption that once they grow to the point of space travel, they can be officially contacted.
