Locations: Charest / Britannia

Britannia is one of the largest and oldest colonies in the Unified Government.

After the devastation of Earth by the Zentraadi, many of the surviving people desired to be as far away as possible from Earth in case another Zentraadi Fleet appeared to complete the unfinished job. Such was the feeling of many of the people of England, who strived to flee Earth and start afresh somewhere else.

In 2014, a planet capable of sustaining human life was found in the Charest system. The second planet of the Charest system was named Britannia, and many of the surviving English people and clones of English people came to make a new world, very similar in fact to the Pilgrims leaving England and starting afresh in the new land of North America. To begin with, life was hard on Britannia, but the emigrants fought to make their mark and build their new home. After much exploration of the planet and the star system it lay in, the emigrants discovered that it was rich in various minerals and ores, especially the two moons of Britannia: Brit A & Brit B.

Following these discoveries, the Unified Government funded the Britannia Colony, and began to use it as a resupply and repair base for its forces. The Britannia Colony world now stands as a major part of the machine that keeps the Unified Space Forces running.

  • 67 Lightyears (6 hours & 42 minutes Space Fold) from Sol
  • Charest I
    Hot and rocky with a violently dangerous atmosphere. Natural Satellites
  • Charest Ia
    - a small moon.
  • Britannia
    Emigrant Planet, Unified Space Forces Fleet Repair and Supply Base. Britannia is in almost the exact same position and orbit as Earth. Such a planet so similar to, and so near Earth shocked and surprised Earth's Scientists, leading them to believe that more such planets should exist nearby.

  • The Newton Asteroid Belt
    A huge asteroid belt that circles the entire star system. It is sparsely filled with large and small asteroids in slow orbits. Dangerous for large ships to fly through, but not so much of a problem for small fighters. The Unified Space Forces Galaxy Patrol frequently does sweeps of the asteroid field to ensure no pirates or Anti-UN Rebels are hiding in it.
