The Confederation Corps used an army-based rank system. General Jean-Luc Picard was a renowned military leader. The large combadge worn on the black and grey uniforms included horizontal dents indicating rank. (PIC episode: "Penance")
In the 25th century, the Confederation was embroiled in several wars and rebellions. General Sisko oversaw the Vulcan Front in the Vulcan War. The Romulan Freedom Movement had been fought in the past. The Dominion Alliance was a current enemy. Five species, including Andorians and Vulcans, orchestrated uprisings and a celebratory terrorist act in Okinawa on Earth. (PIC episode: "Penance")
The Confederation of Earth arose from a change in the timeline caused by Q in Los Angeles in the year 2024. By 2401, the Confederation celebrated Eradication Days, where an enemy would be publicly defeated. In that year, the Borg Queen was the last Borg and meant to be executed by General Picard.
Jean-Luc Picard, Seven of Nine, Cristóbal Rios, Raffaela Musiker, Agnes Jurati and Elnor escaped with the Borg Queen aboard the CSS La Sirena and performed a slingshot maneuver to the 21st century. (PIC episodes: "Penance", "Assimilation")
