Premise: Earth unites around a one world government the hard way – war. In 2033, the earth is united under the banner of the Earth Federation. The earth becomes a Type 1 civilization that can harness their planet and can reach interplanetary space.
This now identifies the inhabitants of Sol’s 3rd planet to have breached the barrier to InterStellar relations. The protocol that the Zshu set up millions of years ago means that advanced civilizations can interact. In all the ways that that little word can mean. The Zshu, the ancient ones that ascended to another evolutionary level but impose their rule on this one, declared that there are certain levels of interaction that can occur between civilizations, at different stages of advancement.
The Mjor are an old race that preys on new Type 1 civilizations. There are many races in the Milky Way like the Mjor but they are one of the original bad guys. The Mjor have learned to prosper within the guidelines that the Zshu have set. One of the Zshu’s rules is that particular type civilizations can not destroy or control lower types. The Mjor can not destroy or conquer the human species because of it’s primitive state. The law does allow Humanity to seek protection by the Mjor and then the Mjor can do as they wish, as long as they do not destroy Humanity.
So with that premise, I have already started a timeline. Not much yet and I have my When Atlantis Fell and Worm Hole Earth universes to work on as well. I plan on doing a series on the Mjor-Humanity interactions but also many sub-plots or short stories.
With that, here is the beginning of the timeline:
|2015||Global war starts with NATO invading Russia over a flare up in Ukraine. Initially driving deep into Russia, the allies are beaten back by long supply lines and millions of chinese soldiers who join Russia. India also joins this alliance as NATO stirs up animosity with heavy handed miscues against India. A Chinese general helps the Eastern Alliance to stem the actions of NATO.|
|2016||The Eastern Alliance relies on large quantities of low tech systems to combat the NATO’s technological advantage. The Eastern Alliance invades and takes most of South East Asia and Australia. South Korea and Japan join the Eastern Alliance after US forces in those countries are eventually defeated and the US seems to go into a defensive mode in the Pacific.. In Europe, the Eastern Alliance moves the battle lines back towards the Russian border with overwhelming numbers.|
|2017||The Eastern Alliance and NATO open up fronts in Africa. While not completely safe, the Indian Ocean becomes an Eastern Alliance controlled ocean, facilitating the delivery of war supplies and troops to Africa while bringing back Africa’s resources to the industrial base of the Eastern Alliance. The NATO alliance also start to invade South American countries in a preventive measure. With most of their force fighting in Europe and Africa, the South American nations band together into the Federated States of America (FSA). The FSA is supported by the Eastern Alliance and the NATO Alliance is stopped at the Panama Canal with large guerilla forces operating throughout Central America.|
|2018||Eastern Alliance Generals Kurchatov and Li Shou prove unbeatable for the NATO Alliance. The problem is they can not be everywhere. Kurchatov defends the Russian front while Li Shou fights in southern Africa. NATO pushes into the Sinai with a combined invasion and strike along the Mediterranean coast. The US also breaks through the Panama Canal and enters Venezuela . On the Russian front, the NATO Alliance pushes back towards Volgograd in a move reminiscent of WWII. The massive forces push into the city of Volgograd to be met by stiff resistance in street fighting. After 2 month of beating back the Eastern Alliance forces to take the city, the ultimate trap is unleashed. The Eastern Alliance had planted massive bombs in the city and still have large quantities of artillery in range. In little over a week, massive missile and artillery barrages with the underground bombs destroy a large NATO force. At the same time a costly offensive is started all along the Russian front by the Eastern Alliance. Simliar offensives are started in South Africa and South America. At the end of the year the NATO Alliance is pushed back towards the borders they had at the beginning of the year.|
|2019||The Eastern Alliance learns to manipulate gravity into a shield. This technology projects a field of gravity so strong around a device that incoming missiles, shells and lasers are stopped before reaching the target. It literally crushes objects and bends laser light. The Eastern Alliance puts gravity projectors around the surviving cities and industrial bases. Due to the massive amounts of power required, This technology could not be used for military forces. NATO could not penetrate the shields. The Eastern Alliance starts to concentrate industrial might around cities that have these shields.|
|2020||NATO forces start deploying hand held rail gun technology that starts to cause problems for the Eastern Alliance and FSA. In a desperate attempt to counter this technology, the Eastern Alliance builds an orbital space ship. NATO tries to stop the launch of the ship with nuclear weapons but is thwarted by the gravity shields. Once the ship obtains orbit, it destroys all NATO satellite systems it finds with its rail guns. Using its gravity shield, the EAS Victory defeats the NATO Alliance’s space station, utterly destroying it. Utilizing kinetic rounds, the EAS Victory pounds capitals of many NATO member states. Peace is offered with heavy penalties to the NATO Alliance. NATO accepts.|
|2021||The Moscow Peace Treaty signed by all parties. NATO must leave Africa and return Central America to the FSA. They also had to give up much technology they developed. This total sell out was deemed better than destruction by kinetics.|
|2023||General Li Shou trades in his uniform and becomes the President of the Eastern Alliance. This becomes a federated state of all member states have limited powers. The FSA formerly joins the Eastern Alliance which is renamed the Earth Federation. The Earth Federation embarks on a massive program to build cities underground, build a larger space presence and re arm their military with laser and rail gun technology. Li Shou pushes for a new language to developed based on English so all members of the Earth Federation can talk to each other. The one common language for most of the Federation is English. The NATO alliance is limited in their improvements due to the constraints put on them by the peace treaty.|
|2029||The Earth Federation establishes two space stations in high earth orbit. Using their gravity based technology, they not only build shields but also provide their stations and ships with artificial gravity. There are 10 war ships and the new mining ships that search the asteroid belt for valuable objects.|
|2032||War erupts between the US and Europe. The NATO alliance is broken. The war starts over the Earth Federations offer to invite NATO to be part of the Federation. The US refuses the offer but many European nations want to join the Federation. In the years since WWW3, the NATO alliance has steady diminished cut off from the rest of the worlds resources and not allowed to leave the planet. The stronger nations used the weaker ones for their raw resources. Many nations of central and southern Europe did not like the situation and jumped at the chance of joining the Federation which has improved the living standards of many. President Li Shou had proven a leader of great vision. Bettering his people, making them learn the new Common tongue but allowing them to keep their mother tongues and rebuilding a professional military.|
|2033||The Earth Federation joins the war against the US, France, Germany, UK and Poland alliance. Before major Earth Federation ground forces engage the enemy, the Federation Fleet uses kinetics to destroy most of the war and industrial capacity of the Alliance. The war ends with the entire world part of the Earth Federation.|
|2034||The Federation’s Tranquility Moon Base becomes operational.|
|2035||A UFO enters the Sol system and stops around Jupiter. The Federation Navy tracks the device and sees that it is a ship of some sort. The Federation commissions another 10 ships and arms the stations. A crash project is made to get the former NATO Alliance populations in underground cities along with all those that had yet to be relocated.|
|2036||A probe is set towards the space ship is destroyed as it gets within 1 million kms of the ship. Later in the year 10 more ships come in the the system and meet up with the original.|
