Mankind is about to rise as a boarder world in a galactic cold war between the Telshean Union and the Republic Combine. Since the nineteen forties Combine treaties have formed shadow governments that now reverse engineer, steal and kill for technology in the race to produce the first human advanced tech patent. Fighting to fulfill their treaty with a patent they aim for the rights to form Earths first representative government. Our emerging heros in the contractor guild are caught in a torrent of new alliances as Daniel Young; Earths first contractor fulfills the American treaty. The shadow governments end their secret operations while the Republic Combine and surprisingly Telshean Union reveal themselves to Earth. Political dialog takes place as the cold war heats up before Daniel secures Combine support to defend mankind from the Telshean Symbiote protocol. Fulfilling the deal with his new technology he leads combine forces in the retaking of anothers home world lost to the Telshar and leaves the Symbiotes undergoing reversion to find the war surrounds Earth. Earths emerging Terran Council is born as Union and Combine forces are destroying each other in the system. Mankinds first leader Althea Jefferson is elected from the American organization and rises to be the first Terran Chancellor. As the council starts to function Althea must preserve the council so their treaties may preserve them from the war. As war engulfs Earth, hopes lay with a Telshean prophet and a former Telshean politician.
