The United Solar Empire

Oderint Dum Metuant
Let Them Hate, So Long As They Fear


The unification wars of the late 21st, 22nd and 23rd century have left a deep impact on the psyche of human kind. The three major powers of the Caspian Empire, the United Roman Empire and the Empire of China engaged in a handful of major conflicts that left millions dead, billions in damage property and billions of lives in ruin. In a mad dash for technical advancement which would hopefully provide an edge in military engagements, the United Roman Empire performed controversial tests on in the field of matter transference, what some would call teleportation, but instead found a method folding space time in order to travel vast distances in a short amount of time. Upon discovering this type of faster than light travel, the world quickly unified under the Roman Throne, which ceased to be a the United Roman Empire and became the United Solar Empire.

Stellaris Fleet of the United Solar Empire

Postby Itinerate Tree Dweller » Fri Oct 21, 2011 9:45 pm

Stellaris Fleet of the United Solar Empire

Battlegroups of the Stellaris Fleet

A battlegroup consists of a Titan or Defiance class battlecruiser and its escort ships. A battlecruiser's primary purpose is that of a front line carrier, so smaller ships are necessary to supplement the abilities and possible weaknesses of a battlecruiser. A battlegroup will contain a variety of battleships, gunships, cruisers, frigates, destroyers and support ships as well as repair platform for deep space repairs and a number of fuel refining vessels. A battlegroup contains about 30 ships.

System Fleet

A system fleet consists of 15 Battlegroups, composed of 7 Titan Battlegroups and 8 Defiance Battlegroups. These fleets patrol and defend planetary systems.

Core World Fleet

A core world fleet consists of 10 Battlegroups, composed of 5 Titan Battlegroups and 5 Defiance Battlegroups. These fleets patrol and defend the core worlds of planetary systems.

Secondary World Fleet

A secondary world fleet consist of 5 Battlegroups, composed of 2 Titan Battlegroups and 3 Defiance Battlegroups. These fleets patrol and defend the secondary worlds of planetary systems.

Expeditionary Fleet

A expeditionary fleet consists of 25 Battlegroups, composed of 15 Titan Battlegroups and 10 Defiance Battlegroups. These fleets explore uncharted planetary systems, repel invaders and engage hostiles.

Faster-than-light Technology

Current Faster-than-light technology allows the United Solar Empire to safely traverse incredible distances in space. FTL technology in the United Solar Empire operates on the concept of space folding, allowing a ship to jump from one specific point in space to another point in space almost instantly. For this process to work a navigation program needs several points of reference and a distance measured in astronomic units. These points of reference must be constantly recalculated by navigation computers to compensate for stellar drift.

The maximum jump range of a vessel is determined only by the computing power available for navigation calculations. Most civilian ships are designed to have a maximum jump range of 15 light years, while smaller ships, including the Scorpio Multi-purpose Electronic Warfare Craft, have a maximum jump range of roughly 5 light years. Larger military craft have more computing capacity for their navigation purposes, the minimum jump range for a large military vessel is currently 15 light years, but can go as high as 25 light years. While some vessels may take more than one jump to move from one location to another, fuel expenditure from a single jump is not prohibitively high. Attempts to jump beyond a ships maximum jump range are possible, but allow computing errors to creep into the jump calculations. Additionally, excessive jumps in a short span of time can cause damage to a ship's engines.

Territory of the United Solar Empire

Postby Itinerate Tree Dweller » Sat Nov 05, 2011 8:19 pm

Territory of the United Solar Empire

Current faster than light technology has allowed the United Solar Empire to expand beyond the Sol system. One of the first systems to be colonized by the human race was the Alpha Centauri system, which contained a number of different worlds that proved either habitable or could be terraformed to support human life. Other colonized systems include the Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani systems. The major planets in these four planetary systems make up the core worlds of United Solar Empire territory.

Terraforming Process

The United Solar Empire has major population centers in both terrestrial and terraformed planets and moons. There is no guarantee that a planetary system will contain a terrestrial planet, but many systems do contain planets inside the habitable zone that can be altered to support human life. Planets that are technically terrestrial but not comfortable can be further altered to allow more enjoyable and productive living conditions for inhabitants.

The process to completely terraform a planet can take decades and really does vary from planet to planet, or from moon to moon. Planets or moons which do not have a dense enough atmosphere have they atmospheres increased with an earth-like mixture of gasses. Water is often added by redirecting system asteroids to the planet surface. Some worlds have atmospheres too rich with certain gasses and compounds unhealthy for human life; these gasses are isolated and removed through complex machines and chemical reactions.




Indepedent Interstellar Union

A loose alliance of independent human colonies and worlds which operates outside the laws, customs and protections of the United Solar Empire. These worlds are generally young, sparsely populated worlds and have little in the way of military might, they generally rely on what ships and fleets they manage to steal or build in order to protect against pirates and other threats. Trade is important for these worlds as many lack strong industries and sometimes even lack agriculture.

Contact with the United Solar Empire is avoided, most independent worlds are comprised of persons who would rather not have Imperial entanglements for one reason or another. The Empire considers these worlds unorganized imperial territory, as it claims sovereignty over all humans, however the Empire tends to have a hands off policy as the independents are generally quiet and unobstrusive.

The number of worlds in this union is not totally known as there are many uncharted inhabited worlds due to the nature of the numerous great treks. An estimate of 11-20 systems is considered close to accurate.

Generally speaking, any system outside of the designated 30 light-year radius is considered a potential IIU member system, thought not all are inhabited and not all wish to be part of this loose confederation.
