星系联盟是地球和全体人类殖民地在神堡空间的代表。星系联盟由地球上最强大的国家支持,代表着人类的军事和经济,负责人类在银河系的探索和扩张。尽管星联在银河系社区中很年轻,但已经取得了相当多的成就证

明了自己,为人类在神堡上取得了一个大使馆席位。星联是议会制政体,议会的地点在大角星空间站上,那里也是星联的首府。

历史:编辑

建立 编辑

在2148年,一支火星勘探队在南极点附近找到了人类历史上最伟大的发现。勘探队挖掘出了古代外星研究所,证明了外星人的存在,并且也说明了人类在宇宙中并不孤独。

这项发现惊动了整个人类社会,首当其中的就是宗教。新的宗教信仰比如干预进化论教在人类中兴起,他们狂热地宣称整个人类历史都是被外星力量控制。即使是早已存在的宗教都很难解释外星生命,有些则将这些新的知识融合到各自的教条中,有些保持沉默,少数团体拒绝火星上的证据。

新发现充斥着媒体,人类不仅质疑自己同时还对外星人产生更多的疑问。比如,它们还存在吗?比起这些问题对宗教的冲击,在政治上因为人类不再孤单反倒是促使了各国选择合作而不是彼此斗争。因为现在是整个人类面对外星人了。

在火星大发现的一年后,地球上十八个最大的国家起草了星系联盟宪章,建立一个代表人类整体的政治组织并且包围人类领地。在这之后地球上的各国都或多或少贡献了自己的军事资源来建立星系联盟军队。在同一年(2149)里,星联发现冥王星的卫星查龙是一个质量效应中继器,它给人类带来了一个全新的宇宙,并且让人类快速增长和发展。

初次接触战 编辑

星联在银河系中疯狂扩张,建立了数不胜数的殖民地,打造了一支强大的舰队。不过即便如此,星联还没有接触到其它种族。在保持这种扩张速度的情况下,星联允许激活任何找到的新质量效应中继器来找到更多的资源和潜在殖民地。尽管星联取得了巨大的成就,不过地球上的各国仍然不拿星联当回事。

8年过后,人类接触了首个外星人种族,一切都将会改变。一支包含三艘护卫舰和两艘货运飞船的侦查舰队试图激活一个质量效应中继器时遭到了突锐巡逻舰队的打击。神堡议会不允许随便激活一个不知道目的地的质量效应中继器,但是人类不知道这个。这支巡逻舰队中只有一艘舰船回到了山西殖民地,而后殖民地也被突锐人发现和入侵。当地球各国政府还在争吵谁去应对时,星联就已经掌控了局势向突锐人发起进攻。

初次接触战的结果相对来说没有多少血,只持续了数月并且付出了623人伤亡的代价(突锐人的伤亡更高一点)。神堡议会介入并且调停,因此人类发现了一个更大的银河系社区。星联之后声望大增,建立了自己的议会并且成为了人类整体的代表。

扩张编辑

在那之后,星联继续扩张,依靠数十个殖民地提供的资源,地球上的工业得到蓬勃发展。扩张给星联带来了和巴塔瑞人的冲突因为两个种族都向在斯基利安边缘殖民并且和突锐人维持和平。星联在神堡上也有大使馆,因为人类在军事、政治和经济领域的快速增长,可以预见在不久将来星联也会被邀请加入神堡议会。许多其它种族都这么说。

人类从地球上走出来到加入神堡社会和银河系社区的时间很短。在22世纪,人类自己内部的种族偏见因为社会和文化的融合在不断减少。发达的医学和基因改造让人们能活的更久更健康,现在的人类平均年龄大概在150岁左右。大多数人类维持了他们自己的母语口音,不过也在学习外星语言或者与外星人贸易。

初次接触战还有一个后果就是打断了银河系中相当长一段时间的和平。不管存不存在偏见,对人类的普遍看法是带有侵略倾向,有时被非人类媒体描绘成破坏性的。与此同时,其它种族意识到了人类是适应性、智力型和具有极强军事能力的种族。

质量效应:天启 编辑

在2160年代,星联在神堡上的大使Anita Goyle想要为人类争取到加入幽灵的机会,这是成为议会种族的第一步。上尉大卫安德森因为他出色的军事能力被选为候选人,但是安德森的观察员萨伦阿特留斯破坏了这次任务并且篡改了递交给议会的报告,安德森的幽灵申请计划泡汤了。

质量效应: 编辑

在2183年,由安德森上校担任舰长的星联与突锐人合作建造的新型隐形护卫舰SSV诺曼底号正在执行最后一次测试任务。船上载有幽灵候选人薛帕德少校和他的观察员幽灵奈鲁斯一同去伊甸主星执行一项回收普洛仙信标的任务。当奈鲁斯被幽灵同伴萨伦在没有防备的情况下杀害后,薛帕德发现且揭发了萨伦已经叛变并且在和桀斯合作。因为议会不想派遣舰队去断面星区寻找萨伦,以免和界神星系爆发全面冲突,他们任命薛帕德为第一个人类幽灵并且指派他去追捕萨伦。星联随后任命薛帕德为诺曼底舰长。

之后萨伦的目的暴露,那就是进攻神堡,而收割者霸主将桀斯舰队作为先锋,神堡议会被迫登上天命超凡号。在这场战役中,薛帕德将要作出让星联舰队拯救议会或是专注于霸主而导致议会覆灭的选择。当霸主被摧毁后,人类被证明可以获得神堡议会席位,如果议会没有幸存那么因为在战役中神堡舰队被摧毁所以星联成为了神堡世界中的军事主宰,但是其它神堡种族都会给予星联很低的评价。不管如何,银河系将会指望人类带领诸种族对抗收割者威胁。

Council Chambers Udina Anderson

人类在战役后会成为神堡世界中一个重要的政治部分,星联组建了一支联合力量去逐个追捕剩余桀斯。所有种族的政治学家都在争论人类对于神堡世界意味着什么。人类在神堡议会中的议员的两个候选人是大卫安德森和唐纳德乌迪纳。

详见:神堡战役

质量效应2编辑

在神堡战役后,诺曼底被一艘收集者巡洋舰击毁,薛帕德被宣布阵亡。之后星联官方封锁了薛帕德关于收割者的言论以及所有相关人员。

在2185年,星联仍然在星际事务中纠缠不断,所以完全没有注意到收集者在绑架边缘地区的人类殖民地。当第一项相关报告被递交时,星联高层在一开始怀疑是塞伯鲁斯所为,所以作出了一些像是在地平线安装防空武器的举动,表面上说是为了加强和边缘独立殖民地的联系。

如果议会在神堡战役幸存,人类会得到银河系社区的尊重,特别是突锐人。突锐帝国和星联会走地更近并且一同合作在危险地带巡逻。

如果议会没有幸存,银河系会对星联建成的新议会抱有很深的成见。由于和星联的关系逐渐紧张,突锐帝国宣布不遵守法瑞克森条约并且建造更多的无畏舰。星联也在建造大量舰船来加强替代神堡舰队的神堡联军防御单元。阿莎丽共和国向突锐帝国表明放弃神堡防御的责任。

质量效应:迷途楷模 编辑

The Systems Alliance dispatches a team of soldiers to Fehl Prime in 2183 in response to Blood Packmercenaries laying siege to the colony. Most of the troops are killed, but thanks to the leadership qualities of Lieutenant James Vega the survivors manage to turn the tide and proceed to wipe out the mercs. Anderson and Admiral Hackett commend the Lieutenant for his actions, ordering his squad to stay put in the colony for its continued safety because of its importance.

Two years later, Alliance Command provides military-grade kinetic barriers and a defense cannon for the colony's protection. This is due to a spate of human colony disappearances in the Terminus Systems, where Fehl Prime is located. The official word they give to their subordinates when asked, however, is "no comment". Most people on Fehl Prime are happy with the Alliance help, with a few exceptionsbecause their work is repeatedly being interfered with.

Soon enough, a massive Collector vessel arrives on the colony and begins harvesting the human population. The kinetic barriers prove useless against the deployed Seeker Swarms and the defense cannon ultimately gets destroyed, having been fired at the alien ship at half power out of concern for civilian casualties.

Nevertheless, the surviving Alliance soldiers manage to obtain some good from the fiasco, salvaging intel about the invaders, dubbed Collectors, but at the cost of the colony itself. Anderson and Admiral Hackett promote Vega for this and bestow him an N7 commendation.

Mass Effect 3 编辑

In 2186 CE, the Alliance became aware that the Reapers were making an incursion into their space. While Admiral Hackett began mobilizing the fleets, an emergency defense committee attempted to evaluate the threat and consulted Commander Shepard, who had firsthand experience with the Reapers. Despite these preparations, they were too little, too late.

The Reapers plowed through the Alliance's defenses, eliminating the Alliance's leadership by destroying Arcturus Station and conquering Earth in a matter of hours. The Alliance was forced to abandon Earth, but later returned with a fleet made up of a coalition of the galaxy's races in an all-or-nothing bid to defeat the Reapers using the Crucible. During the interim, strike teams composed of Alliance and alien allies were mobilized and deployed across the galaxy in an effort to counter the Reapers wherever they appear.

The Alliance survives in varying degrees at the end of the Reaper war. Even if the Crucible unleashes energy that destroys every synthetic in the galaxy, enough personnel survive on various disabled spaceships across the void. In all other scenarios, Alliance forces help in rebuilding efforts.

Administration 编辑编辑

Government 编辑编辑

The Alliance is responsible for the governance and defense of all extra-solar human colonies, and represents humanity on the galactic stage. It is a supranational government, and is based on a parliamentary system, with the Alliance Parliament based at Arcturus Station. It is unknown if the representation is based on the population of member nations on Earth and the colonies, or if all nations and colonies involved receive the same amount of parliamentary members. Several seats are elected by 'spacers' defined as citizens who spend a significant amount of their time in space and do not stay too long on any one colony or planet.

The Alliance government is headed by a Prime Minister; as of 2186, this position was occupied by Amul Shastri. It is unknown whether the Prime Minister is an elected member of Parliament, or is appointed to the position. While the Alliance is a supranational government, the member nations retain their individual sovereignty back on Earth.

Among the Citadel races, the Alliance is considered a sovereign nation and no other species has right of oversight into Alliance affairs.

The Alliance military is respected by the Citadel races for its novel tactics and technology. Their strength lies in fire support, flexibility, and speed. The Council regards the Alliance as a "sleeping giant" as only 3% of humans volunteer for military service. They make up for low numbers with sophisticated technical support in the form of VIsdrones, artillery, and electronic warfare, and emphasis on mobility and individual initiative. Their military doctrine is not based on absorbing and dishing out heavy shocks like the turians and krogan. Rather, they bypass enemy strong points and launch deep into their rear, cutting supply lines and logistics, destroying headquarters and support units, leaving enemies to "wither on the vine".

On defense, the Alliance military lives by Sun Tzu's maxim, "He who tries to defend everything defends nothing." Only token garrisons are placed on their colonies. These are intended for scouting rather than combat, avoiding engagement to observe and report on invaders using drones. However, the Alliance stations powerful fleets at mass relay nexuses so that in the event of an attack they respond with overwhelming force.

The Hahne-Kedar company and Aldrin Labs are key suppliers of the military. All soldiers receive gene therapy for improved strength and stamina. The Alliance also recruits biotics, who are trained using techniques developed at BAaT. The new L3 biotic implants are considered a significant step forward in biotic amplification.

At the time of the First Contact War in 2157 CE, the Alliance possessed a navy consisting of over 200 vessels ranging from small hundred-meter frigates to imposing kilometer-long dreadnoughts and carriers. By 2183 CE, it is recognized as one of the greater military forces in Citadel space. As a signatory of the Treaty of Farixen, the Alliance is restricted to building and maintaining a smaller number of dreadnoughts compared to the turians. The Alliance Navy has made up for this with the innovative design and deployment of carriers, which are as large as dreadnoughts, but are not constrained by the treaty because their primary armament consists of fighters instead of ship-length mass accelerator cannons. The Alliance Navy is headquartered at Arcturus Station in the strategically invaluable system of Arcturus, which contains several primary mass relays that link to major human colonies, and the secondary mass relay that leads to Sol and the human homeworld of Earth.

Economy 编辑编辑

The Alliance has quickly become a key player in the galactic economy, with several large human corporationstaking their market share. The Alliance economy, though growing, does not yet come close to that of the asari or turians and is only approaching that of the elcor. The Alliance and the Turian Hierarchy have become large trade partners despite lingering animosity over the First Contact War. Although humans have claimed many systems in the Attican Traverse and the Skyllian Verge, many of them contain rich resources which have not been fully surveyed, so the Alliance Geological Service (AGeS) offers bounties to those willing to explore these frontiers. The Alliance's various national treasuries are linked to the Citadel's credit network.

According to the VI Glyph, the Alliance offers a number of benefits and a generous retirement package for its soldiers. After seven years of service, a sabbatical to a planet of choice can be arranged.

Diplomatic Relations 编辑​​​​​编辑

Overall, the Systems Alliance enjoys good relations with the Asari Republics and the Salarian Union, and it maintains a cold, yet relatively friendly, relationship with the Turian Hierarchy, though animosity over the First Contact War and the occupation of Shanxi remains. The fractured krogan rarely associate with the Alliance, and there is little, if any, dialogue with the quarians and their Flotilla, though they are not on bad terms. Because of Earth's colonization of the Traverse and the Skyllian Verge, humans remain the natural rivals of the batarians. Practically, the Alliance has no other allies.

In 2165 the Alliance was granted an embassy on the Citadel, electing Anita Goyle as the first human ambassador. The Alliance desires a bigger role in galactic politics, preferably even a Council seat. If they get a seat, they can use the Council's resources and political pull to protect their colonies and interests, as well as being acknowledged as one of the senior races in Citadel space. The galaxy knows it is only a matter of time before the Alliance gets a say but the ambassadors believe it should happen sooner rather than later. In 2183, the Alliance got its first human SpectreCommander Shepard, bringing the Alliance one step closer to the Council.

Despite Earth's relatively unblemished diplomatic record, however, the Alliance is still feared by many aliens because they hold the opinion that the Alliance is expanding too fast. The Alliance draws some distrust from humans as well. It was not taken seriously until the First Contact War proved how much humanity needed the Alliance; as Doctor Chakwas points out, the Alliance is now essential to human colonization and expansion in the Attican Traverse.



Currently, the Alliance's most notable human dissenters are supporters of Terra Firma, a political party who opposes humanity's growing integration into the galactic community. Terra Firma believes humanity needs to stand alone if they are to remain strong. The party has been getting much negative attention from both humans and aliens. The Illusive Man, on the other hand, believes that humanity should be ascendant over all other races. He sees the Alliance as nothing more than weak conformists who kneel before the Council. The Alliance is also sometimes criticized by colonists for its defensive tactics (see above). The fact colonial garrisons are meant for scouting rather than defense means that, in the event of trouble, the cavalry often only arrive once the damage has been done.

The Alliance is open to helping biotics integrate into normal human society, particularly welcoming their enlistment in the military. They now provide funding to the Ascension Project, a second-generation biotics training program, to allay any fears from the public that they are creating supersoldiers. However, some biotics, particularly L2s with severe health problems, oppose the Alliance, believing it is responsible for their suffering because of the failures in initial Alliance-sponsored biotic research. The issue of L2 reparations has created further anger and distrust.

Resources 编辑编辑

Equipment 编辑编辑

The Alliance military has developed unique weapon and armor systems for its troops. Many of these were initially created for the exclusive use of N7 Marines. The Alliance's Offensive Handgun Project has also produced several specialized pistols.
