"Carl's right on this one. These UTA colonies are as isolated as everyone else. They have no clue what's going on beyond their gates. I've seen these UTA operations long enough to realize they are anything but organized. They go for months without supply drops and turn to freelancers and mercenaries to make ends meet. I would bet there are several UTA colonies that are in similarly rough shape. It's worth checking out, but carefully."
Don Gibson, Chapter 2: Leap of Faith

Dealing with the UTA

The UTA are one of two Factions present in every system, the other being the Civilians. Like the Civilians, your reputation with the UTA is local to each star system. Events in one system will not affect how the local UTA in other systems feel about you. Also like the Civilians, UTA bases may stock module blueprints. They will sell these blueprints for Rez as long as your relations with them are high enough - but if you destroy their station, the blueprints can be picked up for free from the debris.

The main benefit of having good relations with the UTA, aside from being able to wander near their ships and stations without being attacked, is that Friendly bases can be bribed with goons to let the Clockwork pass through one or more warpgates. This is the only other way to open a warpgate besides fighting its UTA blockade.


History

The United Terran Alliance was formed to control interplanetary contamination. They moved to heavily restrict gate access. Military blockades began to screen all trade ships traveling between gates, attacking any unregistered ships that attempted to use them.

For a time the UTA was able to maintain control, but they soon crumbled under the weight of rapid expansionism and bureaucracy. Unable to manage their fleets and borders, the military hierarchy collapsed. Without central leadership, the UTA fleets dissolved into a series of isolated sub cells that rarely communicated or traveled beyond local space. Each military sub cell now struggles to control their systems by whatever laws they see fit to implement.
