In the year 2054 the world is once again engulfed in war. America, Germany, Japan, Britain, Canada, and Russia have formed an alliance to combat the forces of Asia, South America, and the Middle East. The Allies are losing. The six allied countries have their forces spread too thin. After a short peace in the early part of the 21st century most of the superpowers disarmed. But the smaller, ambitious nations, were plotting with the communist countries, picking their moment. That moment was August 24th, 6:00 A.M. 2048. When China declared war against the United States, and all it`s allies. The rest of Asia soon followed suit. South America simply sent an invasion into Texas, and the Middle East invaded Europe. The Allied coutries were quick to respond, calling on their standing armies, most of which were still active. Shipyards scrambled to make new ships, or rebuild half torn apart cruisers. Airbases scrambled to get the disused fighters in active condition. The R&D departments of all the countries tried to get the latest weaponry avaiable as quickly as possible. It wasn`t fast enough. Middle Eastern Troops quickly cut a swath of destruciton through Poland, Switzerland, and invaded Austria. South American Forces made as far across the border as southern Nevada.

There are never more than twenty or so officers onboard a naval ship, depending on the size. This is a good size ship, and therefore has twelve naval officers. Marines usually have one or two officers per unit, depending on size. This has more because of fighter pilots.
