The Terran Coalition and Saurian Empire reach the Treaty of Sauria. This treaty creates expanded free trade zones and provides for technology transfers of a non-military nature between both nations. Of particular interest to the Saurians are the advanced terraforming methods used by the Terran Coalition, as they wrecked their homeworld with industrial pollutants hundreds of years prior. Joint military exercises begin with the Saurian Imperial Navy receiving an invitation to the annual “Valiant Shield” exercises held by the Coalition Defense Force.
