Explored two jump points in a system on the edge of my Empire in my WH40k campaign. One led to the fourth Hive Fleet (Swarm Race) I have encountered so far. The second led to a Necron (Precursor) system that also contained a second Aether Rift. Base probably required near here :)

Currently running a 30% research speed game with three Sol-based player races - the Second United Nations (based on Earth), the Martian Republic (based on Mars), and the Jovian Concordat (based on Ganymede and a partially terraformed Calisto, Europa and Io). In addition, a neutral human race of six billion was generated on Earth, as well as a single NPR who has yet to show themselves.

The SUN started in financial crisis, with a quarter of the expected financial centers, and runs a fighter/carrier and missile doctrine. They have the best armor in the system, and are the only power to mount missiles in any real capacity. They have recently made the switch to box launchers over regular launchers after an initial conflict with the Jovians resulted in a stunning defeat-in-detail of SUN Frigate Squadron 01, Corvette Squadron Leo, Destroyer Squadron 01, and auxiliary forces (12 corvettes, 11 frigates, and 5 destroyers totalling 129,000 tons) - though the same conflict saw the capture of nearly all shared-body Jovian mining sites due to an enormous ground advantage (compressed carbon armor and plasma rifles vs laminate composite and particle beams). With the change to box launchers, as well as a new model of strikefighter capable of matching speed with the Jovians, the SUN leaders hope they have achieved parity in fleet effectiveness. If not, the situation may be dire for Earth going forward. They have two extra-solar colonies in development, though both lack critical minerals for expansion and are multiple-week journeys from Earth. The research for terraforming has been slow and of low-priority in the face of immediate threats, and the colonies have been left to languish somewhat. Most areas of activity have begun to stall in fact, as leaders begin to make key decisions about where fuel and minerals can be allocated. Only a single survey group is active at this time, and its findings have been lackluster. A sense of latent desperation spreads across Earth, and some look to military expansion as a way to alleviate their concerns.

The main workhorses for Earth:

The Martian Republic struggled with a lack of initial fuel reserves, compounded by a dearth of planetary refineries, but has since made up for these shortfalls by researching and deploying sorium stations around Uranus. Their fleets have proven to be without equal in Sol, mounting large railguns and impressive Epsilon shields. Their engine tech is on par with Earth, though they have generally been found to be more maneuverable than the SUN's carrier groups due to a higher uniform fleet speed. Further, they are so far the only humans to have encountered precursors, and though they have been forced to retreat with every engagement, they are uniquely practiced in anti-missile warfare. Further, though they are significantly slower than their Jovian counterparts, their shields and superior range have caused past engagements to tip uniformly in favor of Martian forces. Even further still, Martian capital ships universally carry a complement of boarding-capable marines who have proven invaluable in the capture of crippled Jovian ships as well as raiders encountered in the colonies. Martian fleet superiority in Sol at this point in time is simply a fact - a fact that Mars enjoys, as the other human nations struggle to implement counterstrategies. This is not the only area that the red planet finds itself preeminent in, however - Mars has four total extra-solar colonies, with an additional three planned. The most populous of these, Gradivus, has in total more minerals of every kind than Mars, Earth, or Ganymede combined, and is nearly entirely terraformed. The second, Oceanus, is home to a ruined outpost of a former civilization, as well as a similar glut of minerals. These colonies have been developing independently after initial shipments of automines and construction sites, and so far, neither the SUN or the Jovian Concordat are aware of their existence.

The Jovians are the odd ducks of the Solar system. Nearly all of their initial research went into maximizing engine output, and of the rest, most of that went into particle lances, even at the expense of jump drives. As such, they have been confined to Sol far more tightly than their counterparts, though they have used the time to concentrate and consolidate power through aggressive maneuvering and bold posturing. Of the four major conflicts in Sol, three were started by gung-ho Jovian officers, and in their skirmishes major and minor, they have only lost a single engagement. This attitude is a necessity - they have by far the lowest population of the three powers, and although they have finally finished terraforming the last major Jovian moon of Io, they still have quite a ways to catch up. Due to the loss of their private mining colonies to the SUN and a lack of extra-solar exploitation, as well as extensive naval race to catch up to their rivals, they have been feeling the mineral crunch hardest, and are actively looking for a juicy colonial prize to snatch from their human brethren. Relations between Jupiter and Earth have been soured past the point of reparation, though both powers fear the growing hegemony of Mars, and may look to each other as the only way to stand against the greater threat. That being said, tensions between Mars and Ganymede have been lessening as of late, with trade even resuming in some parts of the system. If this is the opportunity to cut Earth's shipyards out of the sky, the Jovians would be more than ready to take it.

The Jovian fleet is comprised entirely of these two ships, with a third, much smaller patrol vessel about to enter service:

Right now, Sol stands on a precipice. Mars and Earth, having both recently completed research and deployment of salvage ships, are posturing aggressively over old SUN wreckage. Battle fleets have left orbit on both sides. The largest Jovian hunter group ever mobilized has been dispatched towards the conflict zone, and incidentally, towards Earth. Private mining colonies have been reinforced by ground troops on all fronts. Fourteen billion people hold their breath across a dozen different worlds.

Honestly, I'm really unsure of how to proceed next. I am afraid that the coming battle will result in one or two of the races losing their navy and shipyards, which would perhaps mean hegemony for the survivors. However, the alternative of concessions and perhaps partial surrender might also be similarly dooming at this stage of mineral crunch. I tend to quit games and start anew when I get too stressed about minerals, and it might be entering that stage for the SUN and the Jovians, though the Martians are doing so well that I really want to play this out. I've thought about surrendering the wrecks as the SUN and Mars forcefully remove the salvage ships and tech from Earth if they win a major engagement, which is harsh (especially given the research invested) but isn't certain doom. Though, that still leaves the Jovians to deal with. I've run "simulations" of the conflict a few times, and things with Earth and Jupiter go either way depending on decisions made in the conflict. I'm just not sure how to play it, honestly. Anyone with multiple player races have any advice when you're not sure which way to go with things? Also, feel free to share general thoughts about ships or naming conventions or anything! Map screenshots, further ship designs, population numbers etc. can all be provided upon request ;D

Use the RP traits of leaders as guidance and then roll a dice to decide. Remember, a defeated power can always make a comeback a decade down the line if an opportunity presents itself.

Yeah, you could do some rng type stuff to decide between any good options.
