Campaign of the Month: September 2014
Enabled by the emerging prevalence of FTL travel, the Reconquista was not so much a campaign of military conquest (though it had its share of conflicts). Rather, the Reconquista was more of a cultural movement, the reunification of humanity as Terrans re-established contact with distant colonies that had been separated by distance and long years.
The Terran-dominated Federal Commonwealth attempted its expansion during this period, though it met resistance in Spinward and Rimward space, eventually uniting resistance movements under the banner of the Rimward Trade Council.
