Revision as of 02:28, July 15, 2012

Affiliation of Outer Free Worlds, more commonly known as Baker's Dozen was a coalition composed of thirteen M Class worlds, with a fourteenth attempting to join, located in The Triangle at the edge of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. This coalition was unified under the goals of liberty, justice, trade, peace, and mutual protection.

Origin

The origin of the AOFW was credited to E.J. Baker who created an alliance with Francis McClain of New New Aberdeen whom he met during his childhood travels with his father. The joint venture was announced on 1/9412.25. Six representatives from nearby colony worlds attended the talks and mediation on Baker's World. Baker took the opportunity and convinced all present that it would be in their best interest, with the on-going war for the sector, to sign a mutual protection treaty.

This treaty was quickly called in to action when the Klingon Empire took over Maze and sent the inhabitants to forced labor. The AOFW immediately entered the war, siding with the Federation. Maze was quickly liberated by AOFW troops backed by the Federation. Despite their common goal the AOFW did not allow Federation troops to remain in their space after the war.

The AOFW continued to grow after the end of the war with Willis Baker taking over the AOFW Grand Council the continued success of the affiliation is often attributed to Baker's World economic soundness and the militaristic capabilities of New New Aberdeen, though in public it's attributed to the highly charismatic Baker family which lead to the commonly used named Baker's Dozen.

War with the Federation

After a Preserver city was found underneath the surface of Colil V, Baker's World renounced their rights on the planet and placed it under the supervision of the AOFW Science Council. The AOFW warned off all major powers. The warnings were ignored by a science team that traveled to Colil V only to encounter an armada of freighters and personal ships. They warned the Federation cruisers that any attempt to pass the blockade would be met with force. The Federation Council refused to cause the deaths of innocents to gain Preserver technology, so the Federation backed off and opened negotiations. This made the AOFW the first government to declare war on the Federation and win. (FASA RPG module: The Triangle)

Military
