Sol Force is an administrative body which extends its canopy over an extended empire of Human–dominated systems and worlds. It is divided into several different branches of service, and controls a huge range of military, scientific and civil affairs.

The largest divisions of the organization are its Civil Service Corps, Diplomatic Corps, Research and Development Corps, Intelligence Corps, and Military Corps. The military arm of Sol Force is further divided into Vacuum Forces and Ground Forces, which provide protection, support and labour to all other branches when necessary.

The citizenry of Sol Force are predominantly Human, with other species being negligible in numbers though citizens of Sol Force and the "Human" empire do not have to be Human beings. Civilians of many other races can co–exist with Humans and live peaceful lives on Human–controlled worlds, so long as they can tolerate terraforming which favours Human biology. However, the "Imperial Population" of the Human empire — the men and women who man the fleets and hold important posts in Sol Force and its territories — are all Human beings. Non–Human applicants are not permitted to join Sol Force itself.

The official motto of Sol Force is "Per Ardua Ad Astra": "Through Hardship, the Stars". The unofficial motto of Humans in space is "Repensum est Canicula": "Payback is a Bitch".

The leader of Sol Force is known as the Director. When you play Sword of the Stars 2 as "Humans", you will assume this role.

The current canonical Director is Hamish Freebourne.


History Edit

The oldest and best developed Human–dominated stars were the "Thirteen Suns" that had been officially chartered by Sol Force by the year 2438.

These were Sol Terra, Isis (2410), Spica (2415), Junction (2412), Midway (2412), Mjolnir (2413), Arcadia (2416), Nova Roma (2417), Hynek (2420), Vision (2421), Nemesis (2423), Fort (2428) and Kepler (2433).

Sol Force control of a region designated as "Human Space" extended considerably further and included many outposts, listening posts, refueling stations and garrisons located in systems unsuitable for significant human occupation, even in 2438, and Human–controlled space extends even further now. In addition, many human–occupied worlds over the past century were never granted the legal status of a colonial charter by the United Consortia.

Sol Force has been a number of things over the course of its history, and continues to evolve to meet the needs of the moment.

The Director of Sol Force was an appointed post when Solomon Blasky held it. Ashilde Falke was a dictator, Edward Altin MacKenzie was the leader of a Junta and Hamish Freebourne is a democratically elected leader.
