|2.34 January 15, 2228 CE - Last pirate base in Sol destroyed; First Stellar War ends
|January 15, 2228 CE: The last pirate base is destroyed in the Sol system, and the First Stellar War comes to an end. The people of Sol celebrate, but only briefly. The UGTO senate declares the office of Grand Chancellor to be no longer necessary. Chancellor Whitworth disagrees, pointing out that the pirate threat still exists, it has merely moved beyond the Sol system. It is decided that a general election should be held for the continuation of the office of Grand Chancellor. Having been taxed and re-taxed to pay for the campaign, and having suffered under the oppressive police state that Chancellor Whitworth choose to make the UGTO, the people vote down the office almost unanimously. Chancellor Whitworth declares the vote illegal, and claims that no provision for it is made in the UGTO charter. Tensions continue to rise between the Senate and the Chancellor, and a divisive war looks inevitable.
