Alliance Global Navy

After the establishment of the first colony on New Earth in 2116, thought turned to the protection and maintenance of interstellar colonies. The Terran Alliance appropriated funds in 2120 to start the construction of six military JumpShips over a span of ten years. These ships were conceived as "first responders" to any future interstellar contingency.
At the time of the dissolution of the Terran Alliance there were at least 26 warships as part of the Navy.
TSN and later AGN vessels used the TAS (Terran Alliance Ship) ship prefix, as did at least some other TA government department/agency spacecraft, including civilian vessels owned by the Alliance government such as colony transports. At least some of those latter vessels had a naval reserve status or could be otherwise placed under navy authority in an emergency.
