The Maitre Wars

By Virginia Carraway Stark and Tony Stark     The Maitre invasion is officially listed as starting in 2023 when the presence of The Maitre on Old Earth was announced but the actual invasion started many, many years before that. The invasion was a subtle affair and while widely acknowledged amongst ‘certain’ divisions in the military, government and civil sectors it was publicly decried as a mass hoax that earth had made contact with extraterrestrials. As decades progressed, part through a planned campaign of ‘naturalization’ on the part of the Maitre, part the effort of dedicated researchers, people came to … Continue reading The Maitre Wars

Galactic Armed Forces Starship Classes and Classification System

“Having the classes of ships explained to me was a blur until I was actually taken into orbit and saw them in the shipyard. I had absolutely no reality on the size of them- even the smallest were monsters when seen in a fleet! The SpaceCruisers, described as ‘instant war’ ,were too big to take in even when confronted with them. They were the size of large asteroids or small planets and they were armed to the teeth with weaponry. They even had dozens of lesser ships jammed into them and prepared for deployment. They could take down a rebellion … Continue reading Galactic Armed Forces Starship Classes and Classification System

This planet belongs to the Telamer, the original founders of the GAGA, who later ceded much of their authority to natives of the Beta quadrant- in particular the bipedal inhabitants of Old Earth. Amongst the GAGA inhabitants less schooled in its history there is often confusion about … Continue reading Alpha Quadrant
