The United Nations Space Command is the military, exploratory, and scientific agency of the Unified Earth Government which acted as the emergency executive body of the human race at large for a time. The UNSC was formed in the 22nd century, a time when remnants of old cultural ideologies clashed for supremacy in the Sol System. Subordinate to the United Nations as a military operations force, the UNSC fought against communist and fascist forces during the Interplanetary War. In the aftermath of the war, humanity was brought together and united under a single governing body known as the Unified Earth Government. The UNSC became subordinate to the UEG as mankind explored into the stars, and the United Nations had largely been an administrative body for the nation governments on Earth. The Security Council serves as the controlling group of the UNSC that supervises and coordinates operations, discusses their goals and ambitions, and deals with personnel affairs.
The United Nations Space Command, while synonymous to the Department of Defense, is a significant body in the Executive branch of the Unified Earth Government. The Security Council possesses complete controlling power in the UNSC, and was one of the most powerful bodies in the UEG during the First Great War. The responsibilities of the UNSC were divided into departments such as the Armed Forces or the Engineering Corps which reported directly to High Command.
