At the age of 44 Federation Military Pilot, Norman “MiL1TiA SiX” Ballard retired from the Federal Military and ended up settling down at Alexander Terminal, in the system Col 285 Sector XP-O d6-96. With a long and successful military career, including a lengthy campaign in HIP 6796 against the Bureau of HIP 6796 Defense Force, Norman applied to and was immediately accepted into the Pilot's Federation immediately upon his retirement.
CMDR MiL1TiA SiX didn’t stay at Alexander Terminal for long. He soon began to establish a good reputation with the locals and word of his presence spread to the nearby system of Xi-2 Lupi. Norman was invited to Pellegrino Hub, the capitol station of Xi-2 Lupi, by old colleagues whom he had served with in the military. The leadership at Pellegrino Hub welcomed him with open arms, and requested he sit with them to discuss the welfare of their home system.
Norman liked the system immensely and saw great potential in the local and surrounding sector of space. He made a deal with New Xi-2 Lupi Dominion, who was the controlling faction at that time, that he would serve the people of XI-2 Lupi, and restore the systems wealth, military capability, and political weight with regard to dealings with the Federation and other Superpowers. Not long after being assigned the role of Military Ambassador, at the age of 46 in the year 3302, Norman became the Wing Commander of XI-2 Lupi's military fleet, now known currently as the Military Militia.
In only one year’s time the Military Militia of XI-2 Lupi would hold influence in, or control 12 surrounding systems. Although ties with the Federation were still strong, Norman’s now relatively large and independent faction would be able to work on their own agenda, away from major power control.
Originally only accepting members from the Pilot's Federation who had previous military experience, the Military Militia grew to be a large, multi-national, multi-cultural group of expert pilots. The Militia has since opened its ranks to non prior service members, growing their numbers even further.
