The Laplace colony incident marks the first instance of terroism in the newly dubbed Limitless Century. Earth Federation Prime Minister Ricardo Marcenas is among those that died in the blast. The culprits are never identified, their motivations unknown. EF officials declare the “spacenoids” to be behind the action and launch a campaign to suppress dissent with force in the Colonies. Among conspiracy theorists, tales of a shadowy organization who has manipulated humanity to war generation after generation are blamed for the Laplace incident and the following riots. Not all subscribe to the Logos theory, instead proposing that the attack was a false flag by a secret faction within the Earth federation that sought to eliminate a known spacenoid sympathizer. Yet others proposed that the attack was exactly what it looked like and that the intended goal was to motivate fellow spacenoids into action.

George Glenn leaves the Earthsphere for Jupiter. As he exits he reveals his status as a genetically engineered individual dubbed a Coordinator. He makes available over the internet the techniques to create more Coordinators. Describing this as the next stage of human growth as he moves out of communication range. The revelation of Coordinators and the implication that they are going to subjugate and dictate to the rest of humanity is widely rejected by all non-coordinators. Furious debate breaks out in political, medical, religious, and ethical circles. A number of high profile cases occur in quick succession in which individuals who are coordinators are removed from thier office or relieved of duties and in two cases murdered.

September 9 0027
The construction of twelve colonies at lagrange point 4 -intended for use by Coordinators- completes and a mass exodus of Coordinators from earth ensues. The rapid departure leaves several fields understaffed during a viral outbreak of Type S influenza. The PLANTs colonies declare the formation of the Zodiac Armed Forces Treaty henceforth to be known as ZAFT. ZAFT quickly establishes that the PLANTS are an autonomous government body separate from the Earth Federation. Attempts in the following months to prove the contrary result in multiple deaths from EFSF forces and resentment of coordinators grows among the common people of earth and many spacenoids.

July 10 0039
George Glenn returns from Jupiter having established a colony near the gas giant. With him he brings Evidence 01, a fossilized alien specimen. George Glenn is arrested on charges of crimes against humanity as the Coordinator process is deemed medically and ethically unsound being formally banned globally and in the colonies. George Glenn dies in custody, an investigation is launched but no perpetrator is ever identified.

 

October 30 0040
Deep space mining operations return large quantities of metal used to construct new space colonies and see many isolated colonies become part of “colony clusters” just in time for a boom in births. On earth Marticus Rex is revealed to have ties to several old monarchies. A fact that brings his campaign for political control of several western european territories positive attention. Winning multiple elections in the UK, France, Germany and adjacent territories he has enough political power to re-designate the spaces as the Sanc kingdom.

April 7 0056
Side three colony Munzo the colony cluster furthest from earth declares itself the Independent Republic of Munzo. Federation forces however violently suppress riots attempting to force them from the colony. Footage of the violence increases sympathy for Munzo and its leader Zeon Zum Deikun. An inquiry is launched by Federation forces as to where the footage is from and how it was attained, but no answers are found.

 

Zeon makes his Newtype theory public. Laying out the idea that all of humanity should leave earth behind and live amongst the stars thereby achieving a new stage of human growth.

February 8 0060

During the riots Zeon Zum Deikun dies in suspicious circumstances while officially labeled as a congestive heart failure methods such as atypical poisoning and radiation are suspected. Regardless of cause the death of two spacenoid revolutionaries so close together is blamed on the Federation. Some loyal to Zeon suggest that the Zabi family who came to power as a result of Zeon’s death might be to blame. A Handful of individuals suggest that Heero yuy was killed on Zeon’s orders as many note that Zeon was a violent radical. In the wake of Zeon’s death his children Casval and Artesia vanished without a trace.

Earth Alliance officials strike a deal with Orb nationals to provide weapons technology in exchange for Mobile suits.

April 1 0076
Zeon and the Federation clash at Lagrange point 5 Loum, home of the largely dormant Colony Liberation Movement. The Earth Federation -and their ill equipped Guncannons- deploy nuclear weapons against Zeon forces and first experience the terror of mobile suit combat. The Zaku 1 proved to be astonishingly devastating to the fleet. Roughly ninety percent of the Federation space fleet are routed at the battle of Loum with every nearby colony experiencing some level of catastrophic destruction. Zeon declared this a victory and proof of spacenoid superiority as they moved on to Side 2 and the Earth Federation forces limped home.

Unbeknownst to Federation or Zeon forces members of the CLM had survived in specially designed evacuation craft, a colony hidden from sight and survivalist bunkers. These forces sprang into action finding every survivor and supply they could across the vast graveyard and set about quietly rebuilding, cobbling together broken mobile suits into working units to aid their efforts to restore colonies to working order.

ZAFT unleashes the Neutron jammer devices across the globe and littering them about space. Widespread destruction and rolling blackouts and power failure follow. Worsening the impact of the pandemic already upon the earth. Across the globe the loss of atomic energy sends groups searching for alternatives. Zeon discovers that most colonies are unaffected thanks to the thick hulls and the distance to the reactors. It is also discovered that minovsky reactors are unaffected.

April 17 0076
Zeon eliminates the colonies at Side 2. Fitting the largest colony with an anti-thermal coating before dislodging it from its orbit, the goal being to use the heavy strike of the colony to crack open the mountains of Jaburo and achieve a decisive victory over the Federation.

Federation and Alliance forces fire on the colony but despite the power of their weapons the colony does not break up sufficiently. Two large chunks falling into the pacific ocean trigger tsunamis that devastate coastal regions for miles around the third piece, impacting Australia and partially destroying the continent. Among the dead are Haruma Yamato and Caridad Yamato.

Zeon forces advance on the Lunar cities Copernicus, Von Braun and Granada and capture them with little effort.

The Alliance receives the first five G-weapons and while they lack a proper OS the problem is swiftly resolved thanks to the implementation of the Automatic Motion Assistant program which greatly simplified the controls of the suit by entrusting much of the suits movement controls to an AI.

May 1 0076

At noon a run in with Andrew Waltfield is thwarted when five copy G-weapons arrive. The evening ends with the group realizing that they are low on supplies due to the rush to evacuate.

The Earth alliance receives word that Heliopolis has been attacked and that the G-weapons there were stolen. Fearing the theft might compromise their meager mobile suit forces the Minor Mutation project is approved which seeks to use scavenged Zeon suit data to adjust and modify the G-weapons. Alongside this a number of rejected prototypes are installed with the g weapons OS and mobilized. Mass production models of the G-weapons begin to roll out.
