Guardians of the Stars
The Ceres Homeguard was established soon after Ceres declared it’s independence from Earth and the ineffective UN. It was intended to be the shield to guard it’s people from retribution from Earth and establish a clear military tradition to safe guard Ceres in the future. In that it became probably the most functional military anywhere until eventually becoming the foundation of the Systems Alliance Navy. Afterwards a direct remnant was kept for the Asteroid Collective, but most it’s traditions would be absorbed into the SAN and grow to even higher heights.
