2375: In the aftermath of the Dominion War, a chramastic and influential Admiral, Richard Hasley, is elected President of the United Federation of Planets by a overwhelming majority. Hasley promised to defend the ideals of the Federation. In reality, he wanted to transform the Federation into a opressive, galaxy-spanning Empire.
2376: President Hasley secretly provoked the leaders of the Romulan Senate into declaring war on the Federation. Publicly, in the Federation, Hasley was granted absolute powers over the military by the Federation Council. Hasley immediately repealed the Prime Directive, revoked the Treaty of Alegron, and authorized the development and implementation of new technology, including cloaking devices.
2377: The Federation turfed the Romulans out of it's territory. President Hasley was granted a range of new powers. In January, his term was extended indefintely. In March, Hasley was granted direct authority over the Federation Council. In May, Hasley was granted direct command of the local and regional governments of the Federation, including those of Vulcan, Tellar, Andoria, Betazoid, and numerous others. In July, Hasley was granted direct command of the Federation judicial system. Finally, in August, Hasley was granted authority that allowed him to control the Federation economy, people, and Constitution. Thus he became a absolute dictator.
2378: President Hasley established the Federation Army, a seperate branch of the Federation Armed Forces, independent of Starfleet. Immediately, he authorized the research, development, and deployment of army technology, armor, and uniforms. Also this year, Federation forces crossed the Netural Zone and invaded numerous Romulan colonies.
