|“||The UEE uses Invictus Launch Week as an opportunity to not only congratulate the latest graduating class of starmen and pilots, but also celebrate this newest group of recruits gathering to set off for training. All over the empire, sons, daughters, partners, brothers, and sisters say goodbye to their loved ones before embarking to MacArthur to start their next journey in life:
The adventure of service in the UEE military.
During this time, naval vessels dock around the empire and let the populace see these brave defenders and awe-inspiring ships up close. Invictus is also a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together with local governments, businesses, and law enforcement to talk about planetary security and outreach.
When did Invictus start?
This may come as a surprise, but Invictus actually goes back several centuries to the days when the UEE was known as the United Planets of Earth (UOE). Shortly after the first Tevarin war began in 2541, humanity suddenly found itself in need of an organized military force at a size previously unneeded. To this point, aside from the hostage situation with the Xi'an in 2530, there had only been local security forces under the control of the central human government.
With humanity facing an imminent and overwhelming threat, a fleet needed to be raised and trained quickly. The Tribunal sent out an immediate call for recruits to create this army.
Transport ships on each of the settled planets would load up these volunteers and travel to a training facility on Mars known as Invictus.
On the morning of 2542-10-12, families and communities gathered at launch pads around the UPE territories to celebrate those that were going to defend against the alien invaders. As the conflict continued, more recruits would gather on that day to travel to Invictus to begin their training.
Over the centuries, as the empire has expanded, space travel has become even more accessible and most recruits are able to self-report, the need for Invictus Launch Week's has diminished. The spirit of it, however, is stronger than ever.
Invictus is a time to celebrate each other. To celebrate bravery bravery, duty, and commitment to the goals that define humanity at its finest.
Welcome to Invictus 2950.
