Terran Alliance Universe
2000 - Birth of Admiral Piraat in The Netherlands
2029 - Major breakthrough in the Human healthcare; the Human aging process could be slowed down at the age of 20, effectively allowing the Humans to live for 140 years.
2038 - The first prototype of a FTL drive was made and tested, the prototype vanished, so it was probably successful, but the Humans lost it.
2041 - The first (proved) successful test of an FTL drive, the Humans equipped a satellite with the FTL drive and an Extra-long range sensor, sent it to Proxima Centauri B, the best habitable planet orbiting the nearest star to the Sol system. Time spent to get there was 3 months.
2042 - Perfection of the FTL drive, and the first manned flight to Proxima Centauri B. After powering the FTL the flight took 2 days, which made casual space tourism a real thing.
2042 - A day after the confirmation the manned FTL success, the Terran Alliance was formed, it was the alliance of all the people originating from the planet Earth, and it’s aim was to improve space travel and unite all ‘Terrans’ by changing the way countries worked. The ‘new’ countries were all united in the TA, and no country was allowed to make it’s own laws. The world was now no longer represented by all the different nations, but instead by the Terran Alliance.
2047 - The Terrans launched a colonization mission for the planet Promixa Centauri B. This mission was successful and 250.000 Terrans became the first inhabitants of Proxima Centauri, starting their civilization with the most modern technology the TA had to offer. The inhabitants are called Centaurians.
2054 - The TA met some alien species who were friendly and willing to trade with the Terrans. The galactic currency of Ȼ (Credits) was introduced.
2060 - The Centaurians started their own space program and became independent from the TA. They named their faction
‘The Black Dragon’ (TBD). TBD and TA became allies.
2061 - A group of civilians was killed in space by an unknown group of hostile aliens.
2061 - The TA decided to start military operations in space for protecting Terran civilians against any hostile alien species. A new branch of the TA was born: the Terran Alliance Military (TAM).
2062 - The TAM made their first successful ship capable of combat, the “Model 1 (modi)”, this ship is the predecessor for the ‘Butterfly’ and ‘Grizzly’ type fighters.
2062 - The first battle between Aliens and the TA was won by the TA using a “Model 1 (modi)” fighter craft.
2064 - Some Terrans disagreed with the TA on making military vessels. After some 3 years of debating these people did not think they could change the minds of the TA leaders and founded the Rebel Arms Project (RAP). They intended to disable TA military ships without killing or seriously injuring anyone.
2064 - At the first mission on Earth targeting a TA military outpost, for disabling the TA fighters, most high ranking officers of the RAP were killed at accident by a TA automated defense turret. The TA denied the accident and told the media it never happened. This enraged the Rebels and they then threw aside their zero- casualties policy in order to seek revenge on the Terran Alliance. The RAP went into hiding.
2064 - The RAP Destroyed an airport in Berlin that had a secret prototype for the new ‘Bumblebee’ type fighter.
2065 - The RAP attacked the TA headquarters in Amsterdam, they did not get past the security.
2065 - The RAP attacked the Intergalactic Trace Center “Triple Towers”, killing almost 5000 Terrans.
2065 - The TA and the RAP made an agreement not to fight in the orbit of any planet, because this often lead to the death of innocents.
2065 - The RAP stole an outdated model of the ‘Butterfly’ type fighter from the London Space museum.
2066 - You decided to join the Terran Alliance Universe.

The original factions:
The TA stands for the Terran Alliance. This is the alliance between all the Terran world. It was founded in the year 2042, the day after the first successful FTL flight test to the nearest solar system, Alpha Centauri. Only 19 years later, in 2061, the TA started making military ships in the new branch named TAM: Terran Alliance Military, in order to fight any hostiles that could potentially be targeting the Terran world.
3 years later the TA got it's first enemy: the RAP. They disagreed with making weaponized ships, because according to them we would not discourage aliens from attacking us, we would instead make them think we are hostile. After the Rebel attack on the Intergalactic Trade Center 'Triple Towers' in 2065 the TA and RAP agreed to only battle outside the gravity of any planet.
RAP (TA Enemies)
The Rebels are a relatively small group of Terrans that disagree with the TA. They assembled some engineers who were willing to create or modify ships for the Rebel Arms Project (RAP) in the year 2064, 3 years after the TA started making armed vessels to fight aliens.
The RAP has captured a few TA vessels, copied the designs and modified them to fight the people who made them. Also they use the immobilized TA ships to test their own.
The RAP consists of a small number of fighters and a makeshift mothership. RAP ships almost never target the TA because they have a well organized fleet that consists of superior ships. For this reason, the RAP likes to capture civilian vessels to get hostages.
The TA could end the RAP with ease, but Terran law states no Terran may kill or harm another Terran unless it is done out of self defense.
CV (Branch of the TA)
The CV stands for the Civilians, they are the Terran people who are not interested in fighting, and have the protection of the TA and the Terran laws.
TBD (TA Friends)
The TA originates from earth, and first started exploring in the Alpha Centauri region, found a habitable planet and started a colony on one of them in the year 2047. On that planet the Centaurians, who are slightly adapted Terrans (other name for Humans) started expanding their population and in 2060 they started their own faction; 'The Black Dragon' (TBD), which are essentially the first generation of Centaurians, allied with the Terrans, both being peaceful factions with no big enemies (yet).
