Core Worlds

 

When the United Earth Territories were formally established by the Unifier after the Marcher Lords re-established contact with the major human controlled systems 85 core worlds were created as administrative centres, each having a Beta node back to the Terra Alpha node. Each core world serves as the hub of its own Federal hub, with Gamma, Delta, and Eta nodes connecting back to their parent system.

 

For navigation purposes some core systems use their first age designation, while their fifth age name is used for official purposes and in popular culture.

Nodal Network

 

The nodal network is a faster than light information and navigation network built during the early days of the second age, which was rebuilt by the Arz Astraloga as the Marcher Lords spread out across the stars in the fourth age.

 

The network is broken down into key nodes, with the Alpha node inbuilt into Sahar station orbiting Terra, which has a direct link to Syrianna. In turn all the core worlds have a beta node which links directly to the alpha node, then in turn their client systems have gamma nodes, and so on down to eta and theta nodes.

 

StellaNet is built on the back of the network, and the entire UET  infrastructure relies on this ready access to Syrianna in order to provide all the computational power needed for everyday systems.

 

The network is jealously guarded by the Arz Astraloga, and their Sonneschutz Order Millitant has a fearsome reputation for dealing with hackers, terrorists, and anyone who interferes with the running of the system.

 

Other networks, such as SideReal, also utilise the network, though they fall outside the UET's security framework and as such beyond the perview of the network's guardians.

 

In the wake of the Unifier's instructions at the start of the fourth age the Marcher Lords set out from Terra and reconnected many thousands of worlds colonized by solnir kinde during the second ages, resulting in the founding of the United Earth Territories (UET) headquartered on Terra. The UET encompasses an area spanning roughly six hundred light years in all directions from Terra. A network of ring cycles connects the systems using wormholes, and as humanity slowly reaches out into the void using slower than light exploration vessels more systems are added to the UET over time.

Ring Cycles

 

Each explored system will have its own set of wormholes linking both the in-system planets with one another and the system with the wider body of the UET. A ring cycle's size can vary from 1km to 10km in radius depending on the needs of the system and the size of ships expected to travel through it.

 

The ring cycles come in pairs to allow for fast flow of traffic in either direction, and the hub ring cycle for a system is usually located in the Oort zone of a system for security reasons.

 

Most cycles will have a space station complex built either into the cycle or alongside to provide goods and services to passing traffic.

Military

 

The primary defence force for the UET is the United Naval service, which has a major base of operations in each core system. Rather than forcing one ideal on each system the navy allows each system to have its own naming, uniform, and ship design traditions, though the core ethos is set down in the centralised regulations set down by the Naval board.

 

The Arz Bellus, Arz Astraloga, Arz Novaris, and Arz Apothica all supply crew for specialised roles with the navy.

 

Other independent naval forces include:

 - Exo Genosis, to deal with the Sentinel threat.

 - Registered mercenary organisations

 - Penumbra teams

 - Independent millitias run by UET affiliates

 - Corporate militias
