defence of galactic exploration,
expansion and freedom for all humankind."
"Not just the criminal or rich ones. "
- Unofficial addition to the motto
a new space race between corporations in the early 22nd century became
heated, leading to violence and deaths in orbit of Earth and on the
surface of the Moon, the United Earth
Government created and
deployed the Colonial Rangers to
control of Earth's orbit and to bring peace and order to the Moon.
- The UECR achieved this quickly but at great cost to
relations between the UEG
and the corporations. The UECR took control of a number of key
corporate facilities and only once agreements were met for the martial
authority of the Rangers to continue, was corporate business in space
to resume with any kind of real profitability.
- Beyond the Moon,
conflict in and between various corporate operations and colonies
continues and the
Rangers are always busy bringing law, order and peace to where-ever it
is needed in the solar system.
