By the ever-lasting hand of Avatar, that great original creator within Digiterra, in memory of the history that will forever memorialize the noble experiment of The Omega Project, let this document commission a new experiment; the Omega Project. Born of the Grand Merge, we, the Original Crew Members, in memory of the Delta Quadrant, swear to carry out the principles upon which those Old Gears taught us, and shall tirelessly pursue our Directive; harness and expand the Omega Particle.
It is the purpose of this alliance to promote the advancement of our members, to recognize the individual talents and contributions of every member for the good of the alliance, and to protect our own and our allies from outside aggression. We are a collaborative, cohesive, coherent entity under a single affiliation. We welcome the advancement of our members upon their own merits.

Article XI Edit
The existence of this alliance has many origins. But one origin has a certain weight none others have. The Project seeks the Omega Particle, a precious and powerful item. For Digiterra, it is the ideal in which all alliances should strive to reach. The Omega Directive explains the Particle as the ability to argue, disagree, and even fight our fellow Digiterrans with a long-forgotten civility. The Particle captures the essence of what Planet Bob is supposed to be; a universe where nation and alliance can combat with respect, and in the end, claim victory without having to annihilate your opponent. Our mission—our Commission—is at all costs find this Omega Particle, bring it back to our brethren, and share it with the entirety of Digiterra.
