Preservers are followers of an ethical standard which holds entropy as the enemy of existence. The loss of information, and the inevitable heat death of the universe must be delayed for as long as possible through the most thorough methods available. To them, all of sapient life is obligated to do their utmost to defend life and information, and to store and use energy in the most efficient and sustainable way possible.
Most Preservers work to promote social and economic efficiency. They accomplish this by pushing for centralized governments, energy and resource efficient policies, and the recording of existing lifeforms and biospheres as dataforms so that they will not be lost. Some Preservers have less politically involved careers that resemble obsessively organized archivists, maintaining collections and redundant databases of information from across the known galaxy. Many would like to enclose every star in the galaxy in efficient dyson structures so none of their energy is allowed to go to waste. All of them strive to protect as much of the universe as possible from its inevitable doom.
Most civilizations have Preservers in them, except Cargo Cults and Old Worlders. They are particularly common among Logicians, Spacers, and the Union.
