Here's the log. Notice me if it's missing something.
UFDC history over the last 100 years:
After signing an alliance with Murska’s empire, the UFDC began to lay battle plans for the Nemesis campaign. When most of the DDC fleets left Nemesis, Thor was able to successfully assaulting the system. However, the UFDC casualties were high, and the Democracy destroyed, possibly killing Thor. The Mercenary Coalition tried to hold of the UFDC fleets, but was destroyed. The DDC defenders didn’t want to surrender, and kept on fighting, resulting in the complete annihilation of the DDC fleets guarding the Nemesis system. Garo was captured, and detained. He was later placed in a form of suspended animation, as the UFDC has execution outlawed. Some weeks later, the UFDC fleets was reorganized, and sent out on the final assault on the DDC. However, when they arrived at the coordinates believed to be the DDC home system, the entire system was gone. The fleets returned home with the feeling that the DDC would at some point in the future return for revenge.
After the war: The next years were relatively peaceful. Alexander returned with a huge alien battleship, named Sentinel. However, UFDC scientists are unable to replicate the technology. The Sentinel is still being hold in The Great Shipyards for research.
Alexander grieved the loss of his best friend, Thor, but he continued to lead the UFDC another 5 years, until a disaster struck Diamond Shoals, the capital. A malfunctioning chronoshock, crippled after a pirate attack, ditched into the clear, blue sky of Diamond Shoals, and upon impact triggering a huge nuclear/gravitationally explosion, killing billions. The casualties were near 2/3 of the planet’s population. The following years, a nuclear winter struck, destroying most of the nature left from the explosion. The green pride of UFDC was reduced to a desert world, with a huge crater on the main continent, creating a spectacular view from space. The government thinks the disaster was sabotage. Alexander retreated from public eyes, and was never seen again. Following the war and the Diamond Shoals disaster, several xenophobic parties got more supporters, and formed a coalition, known as the Radical Anti Xeno Party. However, they were never able to overcome the Liberal Social Left party, but they managed to get what they wanted anyway. Following the disappearance of Alexander, the leader of Green Centrist Party, Quxia Xitle, was elected as the new emperor. The tletlequxian was known for his support to xenophobic parties, and the UFDC went into isolation form other empires, and became more hostile. However, funding for Murska’s empire increased, aiding it in its expansion. The next years were peaceful. 30 years after the war, a breakthrough in wormhole technology allowed the UFDC to create stable and functional wormholes. By the end of the decade, nearly all systems were connected by a wormhole-net, leading the UFDC into an economical golden age. The economy began to grow rapidly, and the military funding dropped. 70 years after the war, the colonies in the northern part of the UFDC, colonized during the war, was declared as “Third Stage Colony”, systems with the possibility to support itself. 87 years after the war, the present UFDC emperor, JuliusDernise, was elected, and the empire began to open itself to the outside universe. By the end of the century, UFDC emerged with a strong economy, but the imperial fleet was reduced to half of its size in the DDC-UFDC war. However, lots of funding had been poured into the research programs, and this resulted in much higher technology in both military and civilian aspects.
Several terraforming projects have been made to rebuild Diamond Shoals, but they all failed. However there are signs that the pine forests that once covered the northern hemisphere is returning. Today, almost 10 billion people reside upon Diamond Shoals desert surface, but the capital was recently changed to New Paris, on the terran planet Mithril.
Today, the UFDC is utilizing gravitational weapons, instead of kinetic weaponry. The chronoshock is also perfected, and is found on most capital ships. A new armor, capable to absorb energy and radiate it back into space was discovered 34 years after the war, based on strange crystal formations on one of the planets in one the newly colonized systems. This armor makes the UFDC ships a lot more resistant to energy weapons. The civilian gravitational technology allows the creation of wormholes that may be used in many other ways than just instant travel between systems, such as mining asteroid belts. *A wormhole is sent through the belt, scooping up any asteroid it encounter, sending them to the refinery. A ship with a repulsor field is standing in the other end, and stops the wormhole before it leaves the belt.
The battleship discovered by Alexander, as an extreme high technology level, thus making the UFDC battleships on the same size inferior. The ship, named Sentinel, utilizes huge energy based weapons, capable to both draining shields, rip through hulls, and just kill of the entire crew of the enemy ship without even scratching the paint. Today, it’s standing in dry dock in the Great Shipyard. However, UFDC scientists are unable to replicate the technology, and how to command most of the weaponry is still not known. It is however recognized as the flagship of the imperial fleet, although it rarely engages in open combat.
@Idiota: Yes, thats ok. He escapes the suspended animation, 100 years after the Diamond Shoals disaster.
