The NTF Rebellion was an open protest against the politics of the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance by Supreme Admiral Aken Bosch and his loyalists.

In 2366, Admiral Aken Bosch of the GTVA 4th Fleet declared his scission with the rest of the GTVA and the formation of a new government based in Polaris, the Neo-Terran Front. The governments of Regulus and Sirius also defected, leading to heavy fighting in the front lines of Alpha Centauri, Deneb, and Epsilon Pegasi. This timeline will span between the initial fall of Polaris to the escape of Bosch and destruction of the NTF Iceni in the nebula.
