 By the time the Dominion advance was blunted, the Free Union had built up enough military force to prevent its re-annexation by the Ascendancy, and a new Faction was born. In the centuries since its formation, the Free Union has expanded outwards, establishing new colonies as well as discovering new ones created by the great wave of Terran sleeper ships. They have brought many new alien species into their confederacy,​ swayed by the promise of an equal voice at the table. By the time the Dominion advance was blunted, the Free Union had built up enough military force to prevent its re-annexation by the Ascendancy, and a new Faction was born.
