Basically in 2072 an Asari research vessel that was exploring a newly opened relay, which they were allowed to open, came across a system, Sol, that was not only inhabited but by a space faring race, humanity, the newly united humanity was still trying to put out the fires left by the inter planetary war, facing famine and risking economic collapse the newly formed UEG becomes allies with the council.
Humanity was allowed to keep their AI's which were still rather new as they were essential in keeping the UEG and UNSC economy afloat as well as their military's reliance on them.
By 2350 humanity had spread out through the stars using a mix of their existing tech and Mass effect technology, the powerful cooling system used in their fusion reactors allowed the heating problem to be fixed when using a Mass effect core. the build up of static electricity is redirected into useful power like the shields (barriers). humanity was granted a council seat after various scientific, economical and military contributions to council space, things like Medi-gel and UNSC carriers were first in council space as they had never used them before. none of the benefits were as incredible as the Shaw-Fujikawa slip-space drive, first tested in 2592. it revolutionised science and space travel and was thought to be the most important invention ever created as it meant that space travel was no longer restricted to the relay network. however it was restricted to military and long range research vessels. it is also the biggest area of income for the UNSC as it is sold to the other races at over ten billion credits per unit.
By 2480 Humanities peaceful existence among the stars starts to come to an end as several inserectionist movements rise up, only to be put down by the UNSC, however it doesn't stop and the rebels are banished to the terminus systems where they formed the Terminus Alliance, under the rule of a small council consisting of Colonel Watts, Aria T'loak and a Krogen known as the Patriarch,
peace for the UEG was short lived when the Batarian hegemony decided to try and destroy the new council race, the war was short but costly for the hegemony, when the first hegemony fleet entered human space the hundred ship strong fleet was beaten back by the UNSC Navy who had intel on where the fleet would arrive thanks to several spies and ONI. several fleets were than dispatched from Reach to end the war as fast as possible, the Turian hierarchy fully supported the UNSC in their war effort, eve going as far as sending fleets into Batarian space with their UNSC counter parts,
It was during this time that the UNSC became a military force to be feared, dropping troops in behind enemy lines from orbit. the Ares class dreadnought was first introduced during this time, at over Six km long and two km wide the fearsome dreadnought had half a kilometer of armour and enough weapons to put the Hierarchy to shame.
Reach- humanities fortress world was according to many sources, including the STG, to be nothing more than a myth, and that Arcturus was the head of the UNSC military power. this was proven wrong when the Batarians received intel on where to find it and its importance to the UNSC war effort, it did however lack any intel on ship numbers and positions of orbital defenses the hegemony decided that three hundred vessels would be enough to take the planet, they were wrong. the war lasted only a couple of months after that as the majority of the hegemony remaining fleet was sent to Reach.
In 2502 the Hegemony was defeated at Kar'shan when the UNSC Fifth fleet led by Admiral Cole pushed past the defenses and dropped over three hundred million troops onto the planet surface, only finding minimal resistance. it was later revealed that the hegemony had been keeping their citizens prisoners in their own homes
With the war with the Batarian Hegemony over the UNSC leaves Batarian space, the remaining officials of the Hegemony that escaped detection and their supporters annex several independent colonies and force the population to become part of the newly formed Coalition of Systems.
Around this time Jack West Jr, the son of General Jack West Sr, graduates from the Corbulo Academy of Military Science with top marks, he joins the Army in spite of his father, who wanted him to become a Marine.
in 2520 the head of the Office of Naval Intelligence, Margret Parangosky, is accused of violating several laws within the UNSC/UEG and the Citadel Council, when a team of Marines moves to arrest her soldiers and other officials loyal to her defect and start off a civil war the likes of which hadn't been seen since the inter planetary war. The UNSC Point of No Return, Parangosky's command vessel was secured before she could escape via the prowler. although no proof has ever been seen that it remains in UNSC hands as it was never given in after the Admiral went rouge.
In 2525 events lead to Captain Jack West Jr on a quest to obtain the Void stone before it unleashes 'the darkness'.
