Reconstruction

Jump to: navigation, search

The Reconstruction, sometimes referred to as the Reconstruction Period or Reconstruction Era, was a series of political events which led to advancing technology and preparing for the Shivans' return. The Reconstruction included many major events, such as the formation of the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance and the Beta Aquilae Convention.

After the destruction of the SD Lucifer, the Terran and Vasudan species were faced with having to rebuild their respective civilizations. A coup by rogue members of Galactic Terran Intelligence was only the first in a series of splinterings in the former Galactic Terran Alliance.
