After the fourth world war of the planet earth, an advanced race of alien explorers called the Eloh contacted our world leaders with a message of Peace and Unity. The leaders heeded this message and put all their difference aside instead opting for peace and prosperity between all countries and races. They opened all borders and implemented world commerence so that poverty, unemployment and senseless violence was now a thing of the past.The whole world was now united as one. And Peace reigned on earth, now know as United Terra.The presence of the Eloh, was kept secret, to protect them, as several splinter groups still opposed the fact of being at peace with other countries they once considered enemies.23 years after the Eloh had arrived, 14 years after the unifying of Terra, the Eloh have returned bearing dark news. A collection of alien races know only as "The Bane" have been sighted near our sector of the galaxy, and that we should arm and prepare ourselves for the likeliness of an invasion. The United Terra government, with the protection of Terra's inhabitants in mind, created the plant's first inter galactic army, the United Terra Assault Corps, to protect us from any planetary assaults. Unfortunately however, we lacked starships and assault vessels to deter the bane. They neared our or planet and began their invasion from afar. The rest as they say is history.-Excerpt from the United Terra encyclopedia, 4TH Edition.
