Ladies, Gentlemen, and others, before you begin traveling through my reality, you may wish to familiarize yourself with some aspects of that reality.
This is an alternate universe series loosely based on a “theater of the mind” style RGP I have played off and on since 1979 set in a universe similar to BOTP, however, it tends to be more violent then the TV show. People do get injured or killed and the language can be a little on the rough side. (When you have someone shooting at you, determined to deprive you of your life, I am not going to believe that “Oh, golly, gee” is what you are going to say. More likely you would be using more then a few oaths.) Most of the stories involve a second team a few years younger the G-Force. Oh, btw 7-Zark-7 and 1-Rover-1 do not appear. (Mycroft never says “Oh Dear” or any other such things.)
The characters of G-Force, Chief Anderson, Zoltar and Spectra belong to Tansunaku studios and Sandy Frank. TC and Tanna belong to Tina Wabler. Paul belongs to Sharon Alvarado. The rest are mine.
Galactic Federation of Planets: In Battle it was know as the Federation of Peaceful Planets. Same basic concept.
Galactic Federation Security: Department entrusted with maintaining the safety and security of the Federation. The foundation of which is a group of 18 Operatives, two fully trained teams, and a handful of auxiliary members backing them, plus support staff.
G-Force: Federation Security Alpha Strike team. Command ship: Phoenix. 7 standing members.
Force-7: Federation Security Beta Strike team. Command ship: Falcon. 7 standing members.
Galactic Federation Intelligence: Department responsible for gathering data on opponents of the Federation and getting it into the hands of either the military or security.
Spectra: Planet that attacked Terra and her allies numerous times. Claim they were trying to establish colony worlds, their planet was dying. Have not been a serious threat since Zoltar disappeared during a attack by Federation Security Strike Teams G-Force and Force-7
Alliance: Organization that apparently took over for Spectra. They appeared on the scene about a year after Zoltar's disappearance. Believed to be a puppet organization, their true name is unknown. Possible that Spectra was just one small part of this galactic wide group. Federation Intelligence has not been able to gain access to more then the first few levels. Objective appears to be galactic domination through what ever means necessary.

Locations of interest:
Alpha Base: Main headquarters of Federation Security. Located in the Colorado Rockies: under Pagoda Peak. Access is gained via one of several entrances by id codes that changed as frequently as the seasons. There are miles of corridor inside the complex, some of which seemed to lead nowhere, and no correct maps.
Intell. H.Q.: Outskirts of Munich Germany.
Riga: Homeworld of Kronous, Mark and Matt. 10.7 light-years away, orbits the Epsilon star in the constellation Eridanus.
Regalia: Homeworld of Kimpel twins. 46 light-years away, orbits the binary star Cappella, alpha star in the constellation Aurgia.
Aukreha is Regalia sister world / colony. (akin to mars)
Wright Patterson AFB: Primary location of the Falcon when not being used. ((What did you think was really in that mysterious underground facility? – For any Non-American readers: Hanger 18 at Wright Patterson Air Force Base supposedly houses a flying saucer and bodies of little green men.))
Well, that's the basic cast and information. Any of the characters may or may not appear in any given story.
