The Hades Rebellion was an attempted coup initiated by rogue elements of Galactic Terran Intelligence following the events of the Great War, and was cataloged in the Silent Threat campaign. In one of his monologues in FreeSpace 2, Admiral Bosch mentions that he had once battled rogue elements of the GTI during this rebellion, which has sparked speculation that the player's character in Silent Threat was, in fact, Aken Bosch, though this has never been canonically confirmed.
