UNSC Report(2170)

Summary: The year was the closing out of the Interplanetary war with the terrorist organisations of the Frieden and Koslovics being annihilated with the final battle taking place on Callisto, but this was not the most important thing that occurred, the discovery of new elements called "Trans-newtonian" was made and scientists theorised that these elements could unlock the stars with the first Jump Drives being fitted onto ships by the end of March, it also saw a new wave of industrialisation and growth across the solar system as each planet attempted to use the new materials to their benefits, Mars had been of particular interest as vast quantities of these minerals were found.

Aftermath - March 31st, 2170

The UNSC Carrier Strikegroup Alpha in orbit of Callisto on March 31st, 2170

With the final battle falling on Callisto and the capture of the Fredian command centre, UNSC high command decided the best place to write up a treaty would be in orbit of the very planet that ended the war, the president of the UN was not present, instead representing the UEG was Admiral Duane Luera Commander of all UNSC Naval Assets, representing the Friedens and Koslovics were two commanders of their respective armies, the Kosolovic and Frieden leaders had either been killed in raids prior to the treaty or killed themselves when the UNSC attempted capture.

The treaty stipulated the complete turnover of all military assets in the solar system to the UNSC, the dissolution of all other military bodies and control of all planets to the United Nations, the personnel of the now dissolved armies would be dealt with on a case by case basis, lower ranking members of these armies would be granted the opportunity to receive a full pardon on the basis that they renounce all belief in their previous masters causes and drop all of their arms, this offer was given to allow quicker assimilation of hostile populations, now that these organisations were dissolved and in tatters many lower ranking soldiers would take this offer.

Higher ranking members of the Frieden and Koslovic armies would not be treated so kindly with the majority of their higher ranking command structure being put on trial for war-crimes these trials would take place a year from now on Earth, not many of the command structure survived and so the trial would be short, most of them as mentioned prior were either killed in action or took their own lives when the UNSC were closing in.

After the treaty was signed the United Nations would be formed into the Unified Earth Government and would take complete control over all colonies in the sol system with the UNSC as its military Arm

Discovery of the "Trans-Newtonian" Elements

After the battle of Callisto there was a major discovery, it appears that the Friedans were using what is now called "Trans-Newtonian" elements which they appeared to use in an attempt to protect themselves, they seem to have been mining them for months during the end of the war, in a daring strike against a Friedan compound by ODSTs, Major Ray Davies of the "Beta" Company was the first to discover them after the battle, he reported these findings to naval command, he is to be awarded the "Bronze Star" for his achievement, attached below are the current elements that have been uncovered so far and what scientists theorise they could be used for.

Duranium and Sorium:

Neutronium and Corbomite:

Uridium and Corundium:

Tritanium and Boronide:

Mercassium and Vendarite:


The Discovery of these materials will catapult humanity into a new age, with all the elements now being implemented in all stages of life, with the military now developing jump drives at extreme speeds and multiple other weapon systems, we still do not know the extent at which these elements will impact humanity but what can be known for sure is that these elements are extremely powerful, and must be utilised at all costs.

General Report(April - November)


April - 1st, UNSC Naval Command orders all UNSC Military vessels to be moved back to Earth for reorganisation and deployment across the solar system, with the war now over and the enemies of the UEG gone, the UNSC was preparing to step down from war footing and move into peacetime, UNA battalions would be ordered to secure and garrison worlds across the system and take over for the marine corps. NAVCOM also orders for all survey ships to be ready within days and to begin searching for these new elements across the entire solar system with luck they should find examples of these materials on almost every planet, the UNSC Andraste, UNSC Promise of Dawn, UNSC Providence, UNSC Saratoga were the survey ships dispatched to fulfil thise role.

April - 8th, Alien ruins and vast quantities of minerals are discovered on mars, the discovery is made by commander Garth Pulcher of the UNSC - Saratoga, Scientists would be moved to uncover the ruins and further military forces would arrive as well, attached below is the report by Commander Garth Pulcher on this discovery.

Report: <Redacted by the Office of Naval Intelligence>

April - 11th, with the discovery of the new Trans-Newtonian materials on Mars the UNSC Logistics Command is ordered to move mining equipment to the red planet to begin mining these elements, in other news a UNA battalion arrives on Callisto and begins to garrison the world.

April - 12th, the UEG authorises construction of several new vessels including an Endurance Heavy Cruiser, called the UNSC - Persian Gate, as well as five frigates including two Falcon class frigates, two Bordeaux class frigates and one Promise of Dawn class frigate.


May - 21st, High potential for further mineral deposits is observed above Titan as more and more of these Trans-Newtonian elements are discovered across the system, two geology companies are sent to Titan.


June - 20th, no further Minerals are found on Titan.


July - 22nd, Two survey vessels are ordered by UNSC High Command to be rerouted to begin surveying for jump points, a theory had been prevalent across the scientific community that if you could survey certain gravitational anomalies you could find a way to utilise the slip-space jump drive to move at extreme speeds to other systems, the UNSC - Providence and UNSC - Saratoga are the respective ships sent to complete this task.


September - 14th, the first jump point is discovered by survey group charlie under the command of commander Ellsworth Linch of the UNSC - Providence, the confirming of the theory gave rise to many celebrations across the system, from the scientists of Titan to those of Earth.

September - 30th, the second jump point is discovered by survey group delta under the command of commander  Garth Pulcher.

The Establishment of the Colonial Administration Authority and the Colonial Military Administration

On the 28th of November the Colonial Administration Authority or CAA was established, as well as the Colonial Military Administration, the purpose of each was to provide administration and colonial security to the outer worlds of the UEG, with new worlds on the horizon this was deemed necessary. Attached below are the mandates of each organisation.

Colonial Administration Authority: The CAA is tasked with the planning of humanities future extra-solar colonies and the prosperity of them, they utilise their own fleet of commercial vessels that are designed to provide all future human colonies with supplies and support, the CAA acts as a secondary body to the UEG and works to administrate Earths colonies across the stars.

Colonial Military Administration: The CMA is tasked with the defence of humanities colonies and will maintain its own fleet assets, the CMA has no power in waging war or offensive actions instead it is tasked with defending the colonies from domestic threats and protecting the vital shipping lanes of the colonies.

<ONI Access Granted>

On April 8th, Aliens ruins were discovered on Mars, the entire operation was taken over by Section 3, all UNSC forces that could not be persuaded otherwise were brought into section 3 and the operation to uncover the alien technology was nicknamed "Operation Dynamo" the operations goals are to uncover as well as eventually utilise the alien technology for the benefits of Humanity, the highest level of confidentiality is to be used at all times in regards to this.

As soon as the ruins were discovered and operational integrity was established over the Martian region containing them, the 1st and 2nd Xeno-Archeology companies were formed under the direction of ONI operatives, they were sent immediately to Mars, and would be stationed there for as long as would be required. On April 10th they arrived and began their analysis of the ruins as well as the cataloguing of all that was found.

On May 7th, the scientists finished deciphering the alien ruins and managed to translate their language to some degree, it appears that the aliens used Mars as a listening outpost with this settlement being the remnants of a listening post under what is now the Martian Icecaps, carbon dating puts the ruins at over 100,000 years ago, a full report was made but has yet to be finalised. Section 3 under the direction of ONI requisitioned combat engineer brigades of the UNA into the project to begin immediate excavation of these artefacts after further resource requests were made.

By the end of the year the engineers uncovered alien components that could be described as a research facility, in these components were vast blueprints to sensors and control systems that the aliens utilised, it would take years for it to all be fully understood but this technology could be of great importance to humanity, the rest of the ruins were excavated with sensor compoentns and alien infrastructure being at the forefront of those things excavated, something interesting to note is that all the components were made using Trans-Newtonian elements.

UNSC Report(2171)

Summary:  The year saw the exploration of the first extra-solar worlds as well as the establishment of military assets on these new worlds, worker shortages continue to grip Earth and Mars due to the now high demand for people to work the new factories and shipyards, multiple new projects were underway in the year as well with scientists of the UNSC now working on a way to stabilise the newly discovered jump points allowing for more permanent settlement across the stars, industry and economics is a priority for the UEG and the UNSC will secure that at all costs, with vast minerals deposits found in Tau Ceti.

Inner Expansion, First Steps

                                                       Current explored star systems, 2171

On the 27th of April, UNSC High command orders for survey group alpha and survey group beta to begin exploration of Sols two jump points, the UNSC - Andraste under the command of Arnado Casey and the UNSC - Promise of Dawn under the command of Danita Hackathon, these vessels would be the first ships to transverse slip-space and would bring forward a new age, a month later the UNSC - Andraste would become the first ever vessel to do so and would reach the system of Tau Ceti, the President of the UEG would make a national address to the nations after news of the Andraste arriving in Tau Ceti was confirmed.

It is with great pride that I can confirm the rumours that the first use of a slip-space drive was witnessed as the UNSC - Andraste transited through what has become known as a jump point, it arrived in the system three days ago, it confirmed the existence of ten planets, sixty-six moons and two comets, it is currently in the process of surveying these planets. With that out of the way I want to congratulate the commander of the UNSC - Andraste, Commander Arnado Casey is an inspiration to all of humanity and I am proud to be awarding him with a colonial cross for his work, though he may not be here to receive it, it is only right that he does.

Now many of you may be wondering what is to become of these systems, I am in contact with the Colonial Administration Authority, and we will be drawing up a plan for colonisation once the system has been fully surveyed, this is a great time of innovation, exploration and most importantly a great coming age for humanity, I want to thank everyone for coming and especially the men and women of the UNSC - Andraste for their sacrifices in pursuit of exploration.

-President Lance Laskey of the UEG

On the 14th of June the UNSC - Promise of Dawn discovered the system of WISE 0855-0714, while the event was celebrated it was covered much less covered by the media than the discovery of Tau Ceti as their were no bodies in the system, the president did make a quick statement and congratulated the commander of the UNSC - Promise of Dawn and their crew and wished them well. In other news terra-forming stations utilising the new materials of the age reached Mars and began removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

On the 18th of August the UNSC - Saratoga would discover the system of EZ Aquarii it contained few planets but a human colony could be established, the crew of the Saratoga were once more swept with celebrations back on Earth in their name, attached below is the system report of Tau Ceti by commander Arnado Casey.

System Survey Report of Tau Ceti

The Tau Ceti system contains ten planets, sixty-six moons and two comets with two of the worlds being possible terra-forming targets, that being the moon of Tau-Ceti II and the planet of Tau-Ceti III, with the moon of Tau Ceti II being consistent with the moon of Earth, the third planet on the other hand has ample supplies of water located in ice Sheets across the world, it also features an atmosphere of 84% Nitrogen at 0.843 atm and 16% Methane at 0.161 atm, this world could be easily terra-formed if the Ice was melted and methane removed in place of oxygen, it could be an extremely Earth-Like planet, while this would take decades it would make this world an extremely habitable and prosperous place. In terms of minerals I have attached the full geological report from my Science Officer below, furthermore it is within my opinion that this system be colonised effective immediately.

Mineral Report:

Mineral quantities in the system are high with the second planet consisting of all known Trans-Newtonian resources and almost every body in the system containing some kind of resource, while the second planet has low accessibility for these resource the sheer quantity are of significant importance, other moons and worlds in the system could be setup as mining colonies and then used to transport resources to a collection point in which they could then be transported to Sol, overall an extremely mineral important system, attached below are the current minerals discovered in the system.

General Report
(August - December)


August - 19th, The Colonial Administration Authority under the guidance of the UNSC moves jump tender and  a refuelling station to Tau Ceti III, this is part of the CAAs colonisation plan for new worlds, with the use of jump tenders being one of the most important parts of the plan as the ability to jump stabilise points was still years away, refuelling stations would also be established near the frontier to allow further exploration of colonial targets.


September - 7th,The first refuelling station is taken into orbit of Tau Ceti III, a welcome sight to the crew of the UNSC - Andraste that arrived in the system months ago.


October - 26th, in a joint Colonial Military Administration and UNSC operation, a UNSC Prowler squadron was sent to  the Tau Ceti system to begin immediate deployment of ground forces onto the planet of Tau Ceti III, the marines would establish landing platforms and security for further colonial actions, the following vessels would be sent to Tau Ceti, three Pike class destroyers and one pole class destroyer, UNSC - Bunker Hill, UNSC - Diligence, UNSC - Hillborough, UNSC - Persephone respectively, lead by Captain Dominick Mcintyre.


November - 2nd, The Taskgroup arrives above Tau Ceti III under the command of Captain Dominick Mcintyre, he immediately orders for two marine platoons to be deployed, he keeps the ships in orbit of the planet awaiting the galaxy class support vessel dispatched to maintain the ship in orbit of the planet until permanent infrastructure could be established.

Attached below is the log made by Agent Garth Pulcher after his discovery of the Martian Ruins, further reports and logs have been catalogued in accordance with ONI Directive 24.01.4 and have been reviewed accordingly, this is a priority one document and is classified under ONI Directive 1.03.1 any and all persons who attempt to undermine the directive will be dealt with by ONI Section  Zero.

Commander Log, April 8th, 2170. I have ordered an orbital survey using the new geological parameters discovered on Callisto, my science officer is currently working on setting proper routines to efficiently survey the red planet, we are not expecting much but hopefully with some luck and work from my science officer we should be able to report back positive signatures, I will report back once we have finished our survey of the planet.

Commander Log, April 9th, 2170. I cannot believe it, we have discovered what can only be described as the first proof of extra-terrestrial life, I have activated Naval Protocol Marlon and I have contacted Earth Naval Headquarters on further action to be taken, my Science officer is already pleading to go down to the surface to investigate but we must follow Protocol Marlon at all times, I have also advised Mars Central Command of the current situation.

Commander Log, April 10th, 2170. Someone from the Office of Naval Intelligence arrived onboard the ship and activated executed last steps of the protocol and me and my command staff have been initiated into Office of Naval Intelligence and will now be tasked with the exploration of the ruins until further groups of scientists can be sent, the rest of my crew are oblivious to this and only my most trusted men will be coming, the official story is that we have discovered large quantities of minerals on the martian surface and we are going down to inspect them, while technically true I do not like the idea of lying to my crew, we will be getting in a shuttle soon, will report back once we have made landfall.

Commander Log, 13:00 Hours, April 10th, 2170. We have made planet-fall, we landed around three hundred metres above the location of the ruins, we have begun excavating a path to these ruins, with me is my science officer, and Marine Lieutenant Jackson along with a small contingent of the most trusted marines, am not sure who I am making this log for... I guess ONI... anyway I will report back once we have entered the ruins.

Commander Log, 15:00 Hours, April 10th, 2170, We have managed to cut into what appears to be an entrance to the structure, Lieutenant Jackson has requested that his marines go first to ensure the area is secured, I have allowed his request, my science officer has noticed something ahead of us in a distance room with a light emanating from the centre, the architecture is almost beyond my comprehension with intricate lines and art decorated across the walls, with holographic projections as well as the immense size of it all, It would take us years to fully understand all of this.

Commander Log, 15:30 Hours, April 10th, 2170, No signs of whoever inhabited this place, lieutenant Jackson reports the entire area is clear and marines are now stationed in all rooms providing security, my science officer in the meantime has managed to carbon date some of the materials in this structure and it indicates that the structure is over 100,000 years old, it is very possible that these aliens were watching humanity when we were just making it out of Africa, it is almost unsettling to think about. I do not want to remain here long as our job is only to perform preliminary scans and file a report for ONI, one thing of note that my science officer tells me is that the entire structure is made out of these "Trans-Newtonian" materials, but they have been utilised in such a way to great super-strong alloys that this structure is made of, I will leave further investigation to the experts as we are returning to our shuttle.

UNSC Report(2172)

Summary: The year saw the first humans to colonise an extra-solar body, with the colony formerly known as Tau Ceti III, now being known as Andraste, the colony was named after the UNSC ship that first surveyed it, the UNSC Andraste. It also saw rapid exploration efforts as multiple new systems were discovered including, Gilese 526, Ross 128, Alpha Corvi, Alpha Aurigae and 23 Librae, this more than doubled the number of active systems with expansion now increasing on all fronts, the CAA was now drafting up plans for the new worlds found in these systems, worker shortages still gripped the UEG, this did not mean no new progress was made economically, financially the UEG was in a golden age and shipbuilding was continuing as new military vessels came off the dry-docks at the start of the year. Overall this year had turned out to be an overall step in the right direction for the UEG and UNSC.

Inner Expansion, New Settlements

                                                                                                     (Known Space, 2172)

At the start of the year the first infrastructure was delivered on the 19th of January, this infrastructure would be important for the colonists that would soon inhabit the surface of Andraste, colonists would arrive later that year, in preparation for the arrival of the colonists the Destroyer group in orbit would begin its final steps to provide full security and landing infrastructure to the civilians who would be on their way.

To fulfil the demand of security at these new colonies that were starting to be established the UNSC ordered a new frigate fleet that had been constructed on the 27th of February to move to the newly designated colonies. The Colonial Administration Authority had set out a plan for the new colonies which had been drafted up earlier in the year, this plan indicated that there would be three spheres, in the first sphere, all systems within five jumps of Sol would be declared "Inner-Colonies" and would receive all support required to secure them, the next sphere would be declared the "Outer-Colonies" which would be near the frontier and would be guarded but less prioritised than the Inner-Colonies, the next sphere would be the "Frontier", this sphere would be the newly explored regions of space, no permanent settlements would be established and instead outposts, listening posts and various other military installations would positioned across the frontier.

This plan and new system for the colonies would be seen in quite a controversial light at first as some believed that the outer-colonies would be forgotten about and that this plan would overlook vast regions of space, the CAA addressed these concerns and told the public that all colonies no matter their size or position would be given the full support of both the CAA and the CMA. Colonists would make planet-fall on Andraste on the 5th of September, they would be the first humans to colonise a world outside of Sol, the president of the UEG would make a brief statement regarding this great first step into the universe, in other news multiple new systems were explored and surveyed, below you can find the exact survey reports of notable systems by the respective commanders of the ships that first surveyed them.

It has come to my attention that the first colonist have arrived on Andraste, I want to say to these brave men and women who have taken the first step into the stars, that I wish them good luck and good spirits on this new settlement and I will be talking with the CAA to continue to support Andraste.

-President Lance Laskey

System Survey Report of Gilese 526

The system is a remarkable one with the second planet that my science officer has named "Ballast" containing an atmosphere that is breathable to humans with 72.024% Nitrogen at 0.835 atm and 22.745% Oxygen at 0.264 atm, the first one ever discovered but it is not a completely clear atmosphere as 5.231% of CO2 is in the atmosphere which means that it is not fully safe on the planet without protective equipment for extended periods of time, the planet itself is extremely close earth size at 14,600, its temperature is also of respectable nature at only -1.2c, it also features a gravity extremely close to Earth at 1.05 G, In the mineral report I will go over the riches of the planet but suffice it to say this world is of great interest, the only thorn in the side of colonisation will be its unfortunate nature of being tidally locked, due to this fact this planet will never grow to the heights Earth has.

Mineral Report:

The system contains three bodies with minerals, two comets which have a sizeable amount of mineral wealth, but the main prize is the newly designated planet of Ballast which contains a vast wealth of minerals of every single kind, some deposits are of more high accessibility such as high amounts of Corundium at 0.9 accessibility and many other deposits of varying access, this planet is now of extreme importance and I advise a colony be established immediately at Priority Alpha One, attached below is all the mineral data collected.

System Survey Report of Ross 128

The System of Ross 128 A contains ten planets, fifty-three moons and two comets, only one of the planets is habitable that being the second planet in the system, the second planet which contains a Nitrogen - CO2 atmosphere of 84.550% Nitrogen at 1.910 atm and 11.530% Carbon Dioxide at 0.260, its diameter is 29,000 and it is also tidally locked, its gravity is representative of its mass at 1.47 G, it is overall a somewhat decent world but terra-forming is gonna take an extended period of time, its close proximity to Sol is a benefit though and as such it should be considered for further colonisation efforts by the CAA.

Mineral Report:

The system contains vast quantities of minerals across the system with over 124 million Neutronium on the second planet alone, though this is at low access, most of the system has high access minerals in varying quantities, the nature of the planet and minerals in the system causes me to suggest that this world be designated for mining and that the second planet be colonised to allow collection from mining colonies across the system, attached below is the full mineral data report.

This report follows up on the excavation of Alien ruins from the race now being dubbed as "Fore-Runners" we are still unsure of their actual name but this is what the scientists have begun to call them, so far groups of a dozen or so scientistis were allowed access to the ruins and were also enrolled into ONI at the same time, they began their work and have managed to gain access to a variety of systems located there, the best running theory is that the system was some kind of listening post, and we have managed to recover some of the components used to listen in and observe nearby space which we have filed under a new operation to research and reverse engineer the components for use with Human Vessels, the operation is called "Operation Fall-runner"and is filed under section 3A1.

We have been given further authorisation to continue our excavations and further assistance has been received and we are currently finishing up excavations, all further information and technology is to be given over to Section 3A1 and "Operation Fall-Runner" with any luck we should be able to  reverse engineer and gain complete mastery of the systems.

UNSC Report

Summary: Not much to report this year as it was fairly quiet, a UNSC Frigate squadron arrives above Ballast, more companies of marines are trained for service onboard ships as well as ODST Battalions on Mars, multiple new system systems are discovered those being, 26 Draconis, CE-2-1239, Charybdis, Chi-Ceti. A technological breakthrough also occurred within the year as the first jump stabilisation device was developed and then designed onto a new class of station, the "Jump Stabilisation Station" these stations would path the way for further expansion.

Inner Expansion, Slowdown

                                                                                                                      (Known Space, 2173)

As you can see, known space has nearly been doubled with the discovery of multiple new star systems, the UNSC has designated each of these new systems into their own sub section under the Tau Ceti expanse, that being the Libraen Arm, the Aurigaen Arm, and the Draconis Arm. With humanity now reaching out to the edge of designated inner colony space the exploration and colonisation efforts have slowed primarily due to this fact, with plans to colonise ballast in the following year and for Andraste to receive further infrastructure to continue permanent settlement on the planet.

With the colonial slowdown and a more methodical approach now being taken, the UNSC was designating more of its resourcse to increasing shipyard capacity and in the year four new naval shipyards were constructed above Earth, with the new ships coming off the drydocks, a new demand for more marines was generated and as such recruitment efforts across the solar system increased with more companies of marines being trained, while on Mars the class of 2173 Graduated from the ODST academies on the planet and entered into active service.

When the Colonial Administration Authority was questioned on why their had been a sudden slowdown they released an official statement on the speed of colonisation.

"The CAA has decided to refocus our efforts on the areas around Sol to provide prosperity and further support to our current colonies"

Some critics took this statement as them conceding that they were slowing down to save resources, while others agreed with the CAA, believing that humanity should focus on the colonies they already have, this opinion was especially strong within the colonies of Sol and the first extra-solar colony Andraste. With elections on the horizon and radical change in how all humans lived their life, it was expected for politics and peoples opinions to be at their heights, the conclusion of those opinions would come in the fall of 2174.

General Report
(January - December)


January - 20th, The UNSC Frigate squadron arrives above the planet of Ballast, the UNSC Aegis fate is left behind after the squadron performs a perimeter scan, the Aegis fate unloads an infantry and heavy weapons platoon to the surface to begin preparations like those on Andraste, Lieutenant Jeff Grandison is put in command of the forces on the Ground.

February - 9th, Four companies of UNMC are trained on Earth, they are put into immediate active service onboard the newly constructed frigates, further marines and ODSTs are ordered for new vessels as they come up.

                     (United Nations Marine Corps training in New Vancouver)


March - 26th, 26 Draconis Is discovered,  it is a Binary star system that contains three planets around the second star, two gas giants and one terrestrial planet, vast quantities of sorium and other minerals are detected but due to the size of the system a full report was not written up but the minerals have been noted.


June - 11th, CE-2-1239 is discovered, it contains two planets, one terrestrial venusian like, and one super jovian with extreme quantities of high access sorium, this super jovian would be of immense strategic and military importance to the UNSC.


October - 4th, A breakthrough is made and a jump stabilisation module is created, due to its size the UNSC has decided to design a station to capture the device and use it to stabilise jump points, below is the schematics for the design.

UNSC Report

Summary: The year was a winding down of exploration as the UNSC survey fleets returned home after their standard four year tour of duty, it was also a turbulent year as the political election closed in for the entire UEG, with the question of how the new colonies would be represented, especially those who were formerly in arms against the United Nations years prior, even with the war over the UNSC decided to put all ships at alert status over the week election period to ensure security, in better news the world of Ballast received its first colonists and Andraste was delivered further infrastructure to assist it in colonisation efforts, with the CAA believing that jump stabilisation is the most important tool to permanent colonisation, multiple Endurant class jump stabilisation stations were towed to jump point and began stabilising.

Inner Expansion, Domestic Troubles

(General Assembly of the Unified Earth Government, formerly United Nations)

With slowdown for the UNSC in terms of exploration and an election on the way, only one new system was discovered in the year and instead the year was primarily spent on establishing new colones already known worlds and utilising jump stabilisation technology, politically the elections of the general assembly as well as the election of a president were to be held on the 4th-9th of June, The UNSC Would provide security during this time as it was just less than four years ago that the solar system was engulfed in a politically centred war.

Political Situation of the Unified Earth Government

The Unified Earth Government is a Constitutional Democracy with a parliamentary style system, with Earth controlling one hundred and eighty seats that represent each of the former nations of Earth, while colonies control only one for an entire planet, this has lead to some people demanding reform, suggesting that the current system is weighed in Earths favour and that it does not fairly represent the other planets of the UEG, this critique has remained at a fairly low level though due to the recent war. The election process represents the people of the UEG with each person voting for a member of the general assembly who will then go on to vote for a President every four years, there are currently three parties that hold seats in the General Assembly.

The Conservative Party

The Conservative Party is considered to be right-of-centre in its policies and traditionally favours small government, fiscal conservatism and economic liberalism, a free-market economy, higher levels of gun control, the promotion of personal responsibility over welfare programs, low taxation and low deficit spending. In recent years the conservative party has been supported by the majority of people due to the interplanetary war and the belief that the other parties policies would not see humanity through the war, the current president is of the conservative party.

The Conservative Party has traditionally found its support in the business community, medium-high income voters, families, Earth and the Inner Colones as well as the military, especially the Officer Corps. This has typically lead to people supporting the conservative party during times of strife or war as the people seek security and the party advertises that it will provide that through military spending, and hard crackdowns. The Conservative party is currently the largest party in the general assembly and holds a majority.

The Liberal Party

The Liberal Party is considered to be Left-of-Centre in its policies but it also follows a liberal ideology. In recent years it has strayed away from too far of left policies as it did not want to be confused with the terrorist organisation Koslovics that advertise very far of left policies, but in the past it has supported socialist policies such as the public ownership of key industries, government intervention in the economy, the redistribution of wealth, increased rights for workers, the welfare state, high budget deficits in order to pay for social policies, looser gun control, and greater government influence in publicly-funded healthcare and education, all to produce a more egalitarian society. It also has a history of being softer on crime than the conservative party with shorter sentences and greater use of control orders and non-lethal force, it also believes that high defence spending is wasteful and in recent years after the war has seen the necessity of the military as questionable as Humanity faces no threats from the outside, as well as the philosophy that violence never solves anything and these issues can be solved through diplomacy.

The Liberal Party has traditionally found its support among blue-collar workers, low-income voters and families, it is also suggested that the colonies will be of much greater support to them though their effect of the elections are dubious at best. It is currently the second largest party in the general assembly.

The Earth-First Party

The Earth-First Party is an Earth Nationalist, far-right party that takes the view that all policy decisions should be done for the benefit of Earth's citizens first and the colonies second. It supports completely halting immigration from the colones, with the justification that the colonies contain dangerous terrorists that could come to Earth as refugees after the Interplanetary War, a hard-line approach to crime that favours increasing the number of crimes punished by execution, as well as the re-introduction of corporal punishment. Its economic policy favours protectionism for Earth-made goods, economic nationalism, and corporatism. They propose a high defence budget, the peacetime introduction of conscription and the abolition of gun ownership rights for non-Earth citizens, which they argue would have prevented the interplanetary war if it had been adopted throughout the system, an assertion that is not supported by the overwhelming majority of analysts and historians.

It is a relatively new party that only came into existence during the outset of the war, it only has supporters on Earth and holds no seats within the general assembly but does poll highly in some regions of Earth, it is expected that they will gain at-least two seats in the elections.

Trouble on Mars

With the election closing in, the newly integrated colonies of the UEG would be allowed to vote in the next election but due to the system of how the elections were run which heavily favoured Earth and the fact military forces were still garrisoning former towns, there would be a spark of political unrest as former Koslovic miners would strike, their reasoning behind this was that they were being oppressed and the political system was bankrupt and not properly balanced,

In response to this the president of the UEG authorised the police arm of the civilian government to crack down on the strikes and bring them to a stop before it would get out of control, wanting to end them quickly before the elections, police units were deployed to the hubs of Mars and multiple arrests were made as well as the dispersing of large gatherings, the strikes would subside for now but the issue itself had not been fixed, for now the crisis was averted.

                      (Police Units look on towards a crowd of Protesters)

The Election of 2174

With June closing in each party was readying themselves for the elections, most analysts believed that the conservative party would retain a majority in parliament as most of its actions had been popular among the citizens of the UEG, recent crackdowns on Mars had stunted this growth though. The Liberal party was expected to gain some seats among the colonies while Earth-First was seen as a wild card, below are the results of the Election, there are a total of one hundred and ninety seats with a party requiring one hundred seats to hold a majority in the general assembly.

The Conservative Party:

336 Million votes - 115 Seats

With the recent actions of the government and the colonisation and exploration of new star systems, the people rallied behind the conservative party believing that they were leading the country forward, with the treaty of Callisto, the colonisation of Andraste and Ballast, this result means they still hold a majority.

The Liberal Party

145 Million votes - 72 Seats

An increase over last election cycle with the party gaining twelve more seats in the general assembly, while this was a victory they were not able to gain a majority, analysts say the reason for an increase in seats over the previous election was due to the newly integrated colonies as well as the extra-solar colonies as their voter base heavily supported the Liberal party in the polls.

The Earth-First Party

15 Million votes - 2 seats

While they received a meagre fifteen million votes and only two seats this was the first time they have ever held a seat in the general assembly and many analysts would suggest the reason for this support to the party was because of the end of the war and the belief among certain demographics that terrorist threat was still around and the government was not doing anything about it.

Results of the Election

With the majority in the general assembly sustained by the conservative party and increases for the liberal and Earth first parties it would be an interesting presidential term, with Lance Laskey elected again for a second term into office, he would make a speech after hearing the election news.

I am so proud of this government,  this party, with your faith put into us we shall continue as we have started and bring humanity into a new age, a age without the strife and conflict of the past decade, now with these results I shall go forward and uphold my mandate, we shall support the voters who remained true to us and those who joined us as equals, we shall uphold humanities values, policies and ethics in our continued colonisation of the stars.

With that being said, I also want to congratulate my political opponents on a job well done and for a smooth election process, I am sure we will be able to work together to make decisions on what is best for humanity, for with unity and resolve we can bring forth this golden age, thank you and good night!

General Report
(January - December)


January - 17th, The UNSC Home Fleet is publicly set to train above Luna, but in actual fact its real purpose is to provide security in case of possible terrorist attacks during the election period.


February - 9th, All survey groups are ordered back to Earth to begin overhauls, each ship served a four year tour of duties and will serve another two of these tour of duties.


March - 7th, the system of Cordoba is discovered in the Draconis Arm, it is a single star system with two planets that are not colonisable but contain vasts quantities of minerals and a low gravity moon that could support a small population.


April - 7th, Two Endurant class jump stabilisation stations are towed to the Tau Ceti and the Ross 128 jump points in the sol system and begin stabilising the jump points, as they do Eager scientists collect data on the process.


July - 1st, The third Endurant class Jump stabilisation station finishes construction above earth and is towed to the Gilese 526 jump point in Tau Ceti.


August - 1st, Cargo shuttle stations and military listening post equipment is to be deployed to Andraste.


September - 7th, Infrastructure is to be delivered to the colony of Ballast, and then later in the year colonists are to be landed on the colony.


October - 29th, The first colonists set off for Ballast, their journey would take just under a month to complete.


December - 25th, The final cargo shuttle station is delivered to Andraste, and the first colonists set down on Ballast, this now means humanity has colonies in three star systems.

 With the Authorisation of the President, Section One has been attempting to uncover information on the Earth First party, the findings are attached below.

The Earth-First Party has been suggested to work with the Koslovics and Friedens during the interplanetary war but no evidence has been found that could indicate this, though thanks to several agents work we have managed to figure out that the party is utilising some very interesting means of funding in an attempt to gain a rise into power, its leader also has ties to past terrorist organisations but so far we have not managed to determine if he still has those connections.

They seem to be affiliated with certain Arctic based Sorium mining operations that use extortion as well as violent tactics to control mining populations to keep high amounts of profits while keeping expenditure very low, they have been trying to cover this up for some time but we have managed to get an operative on the inside who has confirmed these findings, they also appear to be using offworld work to complete these tasks, which we theorise they use to justify their belief of "Earth-First".

It is within my opinion that the Earth-First Party is not a direct threat to the security of the UEG but could become a major issue if left alone for an extended period of time.
