Alternate timeline[edit | edit source]

In an alternate timeline, Epsilon Canaris III was home to one of Earth's most distant colonies. Being situated close to the Interstellar Coalition, the colony had a thriving black market economy that surpassed its legal mining and agricultural industries. During the mid 23rd century, the colony threatened to become independent, depriving Earth of much needed resources. In response, Ambassador Nancy Hedford was dispatched to reach an agreement, but not before a clash between Earth loyalists and secessionists resulted in the deaths of eleven colonists, and including one alien disguised as a human. Eventually, Hedford found several loopholes in the import-export laws that allowed the colony to legitimately trade in alien goods. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
