Alliance of Free Stars
The old Alliance of Free Stars was an co-operative alliance of seven free starfaring races to oppose The Ur-Quan and their Hierarchy of Battle Thralls. Humanity joined the Alliance in 2116 AD, 4 years after first contact with the Chenjesu.
Though the Alliance fought valiantly, eventually they were defeated by the Hierarchy in 2134. Four of these races were slave shielded, one joined as a Battle Thrall, one disappeared, and the last sacrificed itself in a blaze of glory rather than being enslaved.
Star Control I/Backstory Era
The New Alliance of Free Stars was constructed when the Captain arrived at Earth star base in 2155. Though the new alliance only started with about 2000 humans as their force, over the next few years, the Captain quickly gathered most of the old allies back and even some new and powerful ones.
The new Alliance proved its strength after the Captain cleverly tricked the Ur-Quan and their counterparts, the Kohr-Ah, and attacked and destroyed Sa-Matra, a formidable Precursor battleship. Chaos immediately followed in the Hierarchy and the combined power of Allied starships and Chmmr forces swiftly defeated both Ur-Quan races and brought freedom back to the quadrant.
