Terran Republic Updates
« on: April 01, 2022, 09:50:58 AM »
In preparation for my upcoming After Action Report Silent Cartographer, I'm going to spend time practicing pacing and detail. This campaign will run until 2.0 drops.

The culmination of two world wars, numerous proxy wars, and the near destruction of the Earth by nuclear warfare resulted in a marvelous and uncanny nation to be formed. In the early 1980s, the Berlin Wall and the vast iron curtain came crashing down. Communications with the Warsaw Pact ceased entirely. It was predicted that the Warsaw Pact and other second world countries leadership were removed in a coup seemingly overnight. A surprised west capitalized on the moment moving forces and supporting allied forces. NATO arrived at the Russian border to find no opposition. Or anyone. Then Washington stopped answering the next day. Many humans were gone without a trace, vanished. It was estimated, months later, that half of the population on Earth went missing. Without the proper population to support nations across the Earth, anarchy followed. In this time of strife, another curious event occurred. People lost memories or any written record of history, only with the burning thought of "Terra" and a people destined for the stars.

All the remaining factions traveled to overgrown and abandoned ruins of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C, adjourning cooperation. Terra was to be the Republic of the galaxy. A nation without planetary borders but interstellar ambition. Suddenly, the last miracle came, the knowledge of Trans-Newtonian Elements. Old world technology was scrapped and used for materials. Abandoned towns and cities were designated for urban development. There was ubiquitous unity and cooperation. Forty-five years later, the Terran Republic was beginning its first manned flights into space. A portent of the future, for all Humankind.

The Terran Republic models itself as a representative democracy with a popular assembly and a senate. Each regional province (divided by former nation state) on Earth has a representative in the planetary assembly. Each continent has one senator (Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, North America, Oceania.) To prevent stalemates, Antarctica has its own senator but no assembly.

Author's Note: I am not a political planner. Whatever you do, do not let me organize a nation's election.

Terran Republic Navy Overview - 2025
The Lexington class Cruiser is the primary warship of the Terran Republic Navy due to its missile armament. The Lexington class is equipped with ten size-6 box launchers, a full sensor suite, and one hangar for escorts. Navy planners struggled to find a design and doctrine to go forward with. With no reference or foresight of interstellar combat, many designers gave up on developing a prototype. Rear Admiral Joan Everett decided upon the America-project, which would birth the Lexington. The Lexington was the first warship developed by the Terran Republic Navy and a promising prospect for future doctrine. Some in the Republic Navy suspect that the Lexington is going to need a tanker, sooner rather than later.

The Essex class Escort is used as an extension of weaponry for the Lexington. The Essex class is armed with a single railcannon and uses the first Beam Fire Control Targeting System manufactured by the Terran Republic, the Type-1. In many meetings and conferences, it is explicitly remarked that the Essex class is for planetary security rather than interstellar warfare. But many suspect that the Essex will be used in interstellar warfare.

There are three commercial state owned vessels, the Hope, the Haul and the Mule classes. The Essex and the Lexington are pioneers for navy doctrine. The nomenclature of class designations follow a system cooked up in 2020. Ships labeled with "Escort" are fast attack craft and are (so far) a Cruiser's complement. Ships labeled with "Destroyer" are to be designed so that they may act as point defense or reconnaissance. Ships with the "Cruiser" label are designed to be main warships possessing missile launchers. The nomenclature with Destroyer can be modified to be considered Escorts ("Destroyer Escort"). Navy doctrine planners suspect that there'll be new classes as the Navy adapts and flows.

2025 - 2027
The Survey Command has two new Apollo class Exploration ships commissioned, the Venus and the Aeolus. Orders from Survey Command are dispatched to the Apollo, Hermes and Jupiter to complete gravitational and geological survey. Terran Republic Navy orders the construction of another Lexington class Cruiser (named Boston) and its complementary Essex class Escort. Mars and Venus yield substantial geological finds.

In mid 2026, Terran Republic Navy planners adjourned that a tanker will be necessary as soon as possible. A prominent design humorously labeled 'Syphon' is chosen to advance onto the prototype phasing. Survey Command sent orders in late 2026 for a Gateway station to be tugged to every discovered jump point in the Sol System. Leadership in Survey Command deems it necessary to finish the system survey of Sol before expeditions into other systems can be planned. Late 2026 is when the Boston is completed

Terra University class of 2026 has only one new scientist join the Republic Research Institute. The Research Institute is short staffed on actual researchers. Survey Command commissions an additional two Apollo class ships in October 2026, the Deimos and the Helios. This buildup is followed up by the Terran Republic Navy commissioning another Lexington class Cruiser (Dover) and Essex class Escort for the Bravo Squadron. Near the end of the year, Terran High Command is hopeful that Deimos and Helios are able to survey beyond the Sol System before the end of 2030.

Terran Colonial Command starts laying the foundations for a Luna and Mars colony by creating prefabricated structures and infrastructure to support life on the two bodies. The city plan for Luna is to be a massive financial center and market for the Terran Republic, while Mars will be a prominent mining and civilian manufacturing world. Overall, the Republic's civilian planners have laid out future operations to use Terra as a primary source of colonists to seed many smaller colonies across the future Republic. Whether in asteroid belts or on distant worlds, there'll always be a starbase for military and civilian ships.

Hayley Watchman, president of the Terran Republic, is likely to be reelected in 2030.
Maybe, in the end, this was the best that any warrior could hope for. A chance to reconcile with your enemy, or, failing that, to fall in the pursuit of peace
