Alternate Federation Foundings

Post by Khas » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:37 pm

Okay, we all know that the UFP was founded by 4 races - Humans, Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites.

Now, what if the human government that helped found the Federation wasn't United Earth, but instead, one of the following...

- Global Defense Initiative (Command & Conquer)
- United Earth Directorate (StarCraft)
- United Nations Space Command (Halo)
- Systems Alliance (Mass Effect)
- Terran Hegemony (BattleTech)
- Earth Alliance (Babylon 5)
- Earth Federation (Mobile Suit Gundam)

How does the Federation turn out in each scenario?

I don't know much about most of the governments you mentioned, but in the case of the United Nations Space Command (Halo), section 31 suddenly becomes less comical, and more sinister.
The MACOs never leave Starfleet, and all become part of the Spartan program, and now the Federation has troops that can manhandle Klingons and Romulans one on one, and even two on one easily...
I think Earth becomes powerful enough that the Borg eventually learn to respect it... :)
