EarthCom (officially short for Earthen Command) is the collective name for the armed services of the United Earth Federation. EarthCom consists of several branches, including the Fleet, Ground Forces and the Marines, each with their own set of ranks and insignia. When joining the completely voluntary EarthCom, soldiers must do at least one tour of duty lasting no shorter than 6 months. When soldiers decide to not "go career," they can retire at any time. Joining EarthCom has significant rewards for soldiers - after their tour of duty, the Federation will pay all fees coupled with further education, among others.

High Command

The High Command is the management of EarthCom. Unlike ancient militaries, EarthCom does not have any civilians within its management - the entire High Command as well as other ruling bodies only have soldiers in them. All personnel ranked CR:4 (Clearance Rank: Level 4) will be considered High Command, however may not actively be involved with the management of their corresponding branches. The Fleet Marshal, which is ranked CR:0, is the Supreme Commander of EarthCom, currently, William Clark. The Supreme Commander is appointed by the Chancellor with the Imperial Senate advising him/her. Only soldiers ranked CR:2 are able to be appointed as Supreme Commander.

Current members:

  • William Clark - Supreme Commander of EarthCom
  • Yolanda Du Pont - Commander of Ground Operations
  • Jeremy Stevenson - Commander of Fleet Operations
  • Trevor Sanders - Commander of Military Intelligence

Recruitment

"Federal service" is a common term used to describe being a part of EarthCom. Being the largest organization in terms of population within the known universe, EarthCom still recruits an average of 1,000,000 civilians monthly. However, an average of 1,500,000 lives are lost monthly as well, thus the numbers of EarthCom are declining. Earthen Command has recruitment advertisements on very major broadcasting network throughout the Federation. Sometimes called "war propaganda" for the way they portray the Federation's enemies and regards the Federation as the "purest form of governance and civilization" in the universe.

Oath

Before joining any branch, each applicant must take this Oath individually. All taken Oaths are recorded and added to the soldier's virtual file. The Oath is as follows:

"I, being a willing applicant to the Branches of the Military of the United Earth Federation, with the knowledge of the dangers and consequences of my choice, hereby wish to enroll myself for no less than six months within Earthen Command. I do swear to respect, uphold and defend the Constitution, people, and assets of the United Earth Federation. I swear to place the survival of my race above that of my own. I swear to obey the Supreme Commander of the Earthen Command, and all officers and representatives placed over me. I swear to enjoy the rewards and privileges given to me because of this service I am offering to my race and my Federation. I swear to, after this day, always be available for federal service, when my race, my Federation needs me, even when in the status of retirement or disability, when called upon. I, being a willing applicant to Earthen Command, promise to uphold this oath forever."
