[ Jan 3301 ] Victoria Wolf of Wolf 406 Transports Co contacts AEDC first time. AEDC,a young organisation, funded by some independent pilots with links to Alioth, dedicated to establish liaison within different Alliance aligned factions and systems looking to strengthen their position against fringe criminal elements or foreign power groups (including the Federation).
Victoria Wolf heard of AEDC after successful operations in the system of Enki and later on Cupinook, a nearby system to Wolf 406, where Wolf 406 Transport Co has been successfully commercing with for a while. She had been worried about the growing instability in the region, from Wolf 406 to Lave, where independent factions has been suffering under corrupt Federation rule, and in worst case by out of control criminal gangs or dictators.
In order to stabilize the region and to allow peaceful citizens to thrive and commerce, she approached AEDC to help her grow the Alliance strength in the region.

[ 8 Sep 3301 ] Justice Party retakes Leesti from the Alliance, a dictatorship now controls George Lucas station. And with it the neural network of the old worlds with its high tech manufacturing goods. Neighbour systems are frightened with the prospects, specially Lave (now a system which pertains to the Alliance), where people still remembers the stories about Dr Hans Walden before Admiral Bryce Jander from the Alliance Navy liberated Lave in 14h September 3265.
To this day the Justice Party still rules Leesti with fierce ironfist, to the point most leadership of the Alliance democratic faction of Independent Leesti for Equality had to flee the system and seek refuge in the systems of Quator and Xucuri.

The rise of Victoria Wolf
In early Jan 3301 AEDC started operating in the Wolf 406 region after Victoria Wolf’s initial contact in January of 3301. Victoria had connections with some powerful interests from the Old Worlds. Rampant piracy, violence, and general instability were commonplace. Wolf 406 enjoys a strategic position between Alioth and the Old Worlds, in what is known in leaked documents of the AEDC as the ‘banana axis’, Victoria Wolf has a network of contacts which use Wolf 406 Transport Co services to transport goods from the Alioth region to the old worlds, with the high tech manufacturing factories of Wolf 406 Transport Co as a supply chain hub.
Due to recent turmoil the commerce between the OW and Alioth has been drying up. This severely hit economic stability within the OW, further increasing instability. Thanks to Victoria Wolf special strategic position, some powerful groups from the OW Alliance democracies and some fringe Alliance factions had a meeting with Victoria Wolf to seek a solution to the problem. AEDC was tasked with securing and reinforcing Alliance presence in the region and deal with the troublemakers, as well as strengthen the links with the Old Worlds.
For this they contacted with Commodore Helena Stone, an Alliance Navy commander posted on the system of LHS 2541, supervising the local task force of the Alliance Combine local Alliance faction.
In what was a quick succession of successful operations, Alliance Combine and Wolf Transports both managed to secure important assets in the region, as a preliminary phase to coordinate actions in some of the Old World systems with local forces.
During several months, between March and June of the year 3301, efforts were made to secure the region along with other groups and support from individual pilots. In this period Victoria Wolf managed also to get her hands in a big contract with Lakon to manufacture the Diamondback Explorer, this would add much needed funding for her long term plans.
Since then, Victoria Wolf has been strengthening her presence, with Wolf 406 Transport Co being present in more than 14 systems and several related factions being widespread in the region, with millions of citizens having joined the Alliance. However, this has been insufficient to breakthrough in certain places, Leesti remains under the rule of a dictatorship, with Prime Minister Mahon still stuck in a conflict with a fierceful and imperialistic Federation and unable to commit resources elsewhere.
