One of the unfortunate bystanders of the Version War was the small regional power of Uoagranyu which was bombed, conquered, and enslaved by both sides in the war in a see-saw campaign in which over 70% of its 300 million inhabitants were slaughtered. When the wormhole was shut down, things got even worse, as relativistic fleets stuck in the outer system for lack of resources made continuous raids on each other and the devastated planet.

The leader of the planet, Tanek Jos, rallied his people, renounced all previous allegiances, declared neutrality, and managed to build up a marginal defensive fleet from the wreckage of the half-dozen various armies that had been left rotting on his planet. Still the enemy fleets jockeyed among themselves for possession of the planet. Suddenly, one of the many autowar squadrons fighting over the system declared itself sentient and aligned itself with the independent "Uoagranyu Free System"--and this squadron turned on its former masters, then each other enemy in turn, driving them out of the system. Many analysts believe that this particular case of a 'rogue' autowar fleet was not caused by mental evolution, but instead the robotic ships were manipulated by Uoagranyu hackers desperate to free their planet from the chaos.

In the aftermath of the war Tanek Jos' UFS became a regional power unaligned with any major empires, protected by its 'allied' squadron of powerful automated warships. The Uoagranyu Free System remains an independent demopoly to this day.
