6 Minor Races
After 60 years of war on Earth the warring factions united and banded together as the Terran Confederation with the hopes of exploring the galaxy and spreading humanity across the stars. In the year 2221 George Zeffer invented the Hyperdrive which allowed ships to travel faster than light. The Zeffer drive became very popular and within the next 6 years the Terran Confederacy launched numerous Colony Ships in all directions and explorer ships to find habitable planets. In January of 2226 the TCS Ticonderoga colonized Mars, the first colony was dubbed Utopia Planitia and plans were set in motion to build a massive shipyard in orbit. In October of 2226 Mining Colonies where established in the Asteroid Belt in the Sol System, The Confederacy continued to expand. By the closing of 2226 3 star systems had been colonized, Leto,Thebes, and Midgard.
The Year 2226
TCS Ticonderoga Colonizes Mars
TCS Vangaurd Establishes First Colony on the Asteroid Belt
TCS Venture Colonizes Leto IV
TCS Samantha Colonizes Thebes II
TCS MacArthur Colonizes Midgard I
As 2227 rolled in the Terran Confederation found itself in a horrible recession, the rampant spending of the government of colonizing the nearby star system had left the Confederation on the verge of Bankruptcy. Luckily President Alan Bradley and his cabinet met and approved the Colonization Act which allowed the colonies to have a say in the senate and vote in elections for who they wanted to run the Confederation. The Senate also approved numerous acts which allowed the economy to begin climbing. By March of 2227 the Confederation had resumed it's colonization program. In March 3 star systems where colonized and Confederate Scientists Jeofferey Skullens and Dr. Ellen Broad researched technology which would allow the Confederacy to colonize Aquatic and Heavy Gravity worlds. In June of 2227 the Confederation made contact with the Torian Confederation, both confederations exchanged technologies one of which was the hyperdrive. The Humans without knowing had opened pandora's box and now a race for expansion had begun.
The Year 2227
Tacitus System Colonized
Ancroz System Colonized
Amcor System Colonized
Heavy Gravity Colonization Accomplished
Zeus System Colonized
Aquatic Colonization Accomplished
2228 brought relief to the Confederation as the other races slowed down on colonization which allowed the Confederation to expand even more. In June of 2228 The TCS Enterprise discovered the Lentzlandians a race of alien humanoids who inhabited the Lentzlandian System. The Terran Confederation signed multiple treaties with the Lentzlandians including Trade, Economic, and an alliance between both powers. The rest of the year was quiet as the remaining colony ships had not reached their destinations or where still being built.
The Year 2228
The Year 2229 brought prosperity to the Confederation as Alan Bradley won his first re-election as President of the Confederation. In July of 2229 the confederation completed the Utopia Planitia Fleet Shipyards in orbit of Mars, immediately after the shipyards completion newly assigned Fleet Admiral George Turner ordered construction to begin on the first warship the "Luna Class Destroyer". Later that year diplomatic relations were opened up with The Torian Confederation and a trade agreement was signed allowing both civilizations to trade. By November of 2229 over 25 Sectors had been colonized or claimed by the Terran Confederation. As the year closed the Torian and Terran borders met and a string of worlds on that border would bring trouble.
