Lord Zack's Space Opera
United Earth Directorate
The United Earth Directorate split off from the United Federation of Planets at the time of their formation by the Earth Federation and allied alien races, though at the time they were known as the United Powers League. They are a xenophobic and fascistic government that opposes peaceful contact between humanity and aliens, carrying on the philosophy of the Terra Prime organization and others. They recently sent an expeditionary fleet to conquer the Koprulu Sector in the Gamma Quadrant, the site of an accidental human colonization made by the Earth Federation. Nothing has been heard from this fleet since. It is known that they have some way of monitoring events in the Koprulu Sector and even have stolen designs from the colonists.
