地球[]

地球,作为人类的家园及首都,在收割者发动进攻前正处在一段新的黄金时期。疾病、污染和其他社会问题在先进科技及殖民地丰富资源的作用下不断减少。地球甚至对外星文明产生了重大影响,在人类走上银河系舞台的短短时间内,地球对他们的影响力已经显而易见。

收割者的进攻打破了这一状态。地球的大城市变成了收割者采集人类基因的仓库。拥有强大火力的收割者战舰在短短数秒内便摧毁了工业中心。地球上各个国家的武装力量仅能与星联舰队维持有限的联络,导致需求上的抵抗缺乏协调且极为脆弱。通讯网络的失效使地球经济与银河系其他地区的联系被切断,对银河市场造成了冲击——同时也给救援制造了巨大障碍。

Earth, the homeworld and capital of humanity, was enjoying a new golden age before the Reapers attacked. Disease, pollution, and other social ills were on the decline thanks to technological advances and a wealth of resources from the colonies. Earth was an inspiration even to alien cultures, resulting in influence out of proportion with humanity's brief time on the galactic stage.

The Reaper attack has put an end to any semblance of this former life. The great cities of Earth are storehouses of human DNA for the Reapers to harvest. Reaper gunships, capable of megaton-scale firepower, annihilated industrial centers in seconds. The militaries of Earth's disparate nation-states have retained only partial communication with the Systems Alliance fleets, leaving the planet's resistance efforts uncoordinated and vulnerable. The loss of the comm-buoy network has cut off Earth's economy from the rest of the galaxy, sending shockwaves across galactic markets--and a significant obstacle to receiving aid.

星系联盟[]

星系联盟是一个代表人类整体利益的独立超国界政府。星联负责所有太阳系外殖民地与空间站的治理和防卫。

星联是多个国家太空项目的实践产物。在各国努力下太阳系被探索和开发利用,然而殖民新恒星系的开销靠单一国家是无法承担的。当人类意识到与外星种族的接触不可避免后,各方纷纷提出了建立一个国际合作组织的政治意愿。

但是,地球上依然有人不重视星联,直到第一次接触战争爆发。当各国政府还在为应当由谁带头解放“山西”而争执不休时,星联舰队已经取得了关键性胜利。战后的公众表决同意星联组建自己的议会并成为人类在银河系中的代表。

The Systems Alliance is an independent supranational government representing the interests of humanity as a whole. The Alliance is responsible for the governance and defense of all extra-solar colonies and stations.

The Alliance grew out of the various nation space programs as a matter of practicality. Sol's planets had been explored and exploited through piecemeal nation efforts. The expense of colonizing entire new solar systems could not be met by any one country. With humans knowing that alien contact was inevitable, there was enough political will to jointly fund an international effort.

Still, the Alliance was often disregarded by those on Earth until the First Contact War. While the national governments dithered and bickered over who should lead the effort to liberate Shanxi, the Alliance fleet struck decisively. Post-War public approval gave the Alliance the credibility to establish its own Parliament and become the galactic face of humanity.
