Shocked and enraged at the destruction of Earth, the UTF forces purged the remaining enemy. With nowhere else to turn, the armada set out towards the Neo Terra system and the few sparsely populated human settlements it contained.
The trip was long and hard, with nearly 60% of the ships and crews lost due to damage from the battle, lack of supplies and space collisions. After their arrival, UTF forces carved out a desperate, harsh lifestyle on Neo Terra, barely having enough resources to last through the generations. Their military chain of command served them well in their predicament, helping them through. Ultimately, it evolved into a lifestyle, forming a new basis for how their society worked.
