Legacy of Sol Faction Focus – United Colonies
The United Colonies
A para-military group that advises the governments of the new Human colonies, the United Colonies (UC) are the peace keepers of human space. Colony armed forces commit members of their own military to the UC for joint operations. The main democratic colonies are keen to support this movement. However, some worlds are less willing to contribute and look to other powers to back their agenda.
The United Colonies are keen to foster cultural and technological exchanges with the wider galactic com
munity. Adopting existing technologies has proven a powerful step up for their capabilities, but without a manufacturing base they are reliant on alien technology or what the colonies are willing to share. This access to alien technology has proven an incentive for colony armed forces, which are keen to have their troops trained in advanced warfare.
On the galactic stage they are the most progressive. Willingness to work with the Free Species has opened many avenues for the UC and many ‘alien’ organisations view them as the primary political force of humanity. The Protectorate in particular has worked with them closely in helping to bolster the Human Colonies and encourage trade and diplomatic involvement.
The lifting of the quarantine of Sol has opened a pathway to the history of Humanity. The UC are working hard to co-ordinate colony efforts to reclaim the old worlds. However, some entities are seeking individual dominance at the expense of others. With the backing of the Protectorate, the UC is determined to ensure the security of the home-system as a resource for all mankind.
The United Colonies faction is a very flexible one. They are able to call upon expert tactical units from some worlds and have limited access to advanced Protectorate military and sensor technology. Expedition forces are likely to be able to deal with most issues, but not focused on any one particular battlefield methodology. They potentially therefore don’t have the synergies that other factions do in particular areas, but are set up to deal with many different types of battlefield scenarios. The first Leader available for the United Colonies is the New Pacifican Scientist Pria Katharmi.
