PILGRIM: Travels in Space
Union Defense Force
The Union Defense Force is a small, specially trained military with a focus on minor insertions, psi-ops, intelligence gathering and local protection. It is entirely volunteer-based, and believes strongly in technology being the upper hand in combat encounters. The majority of its resources go to maintaining its Interplanetary Fleet and the Marine Corps. Aside from small disputes within the population, the UDF has seen no real military combat.

Earth Solar Armed Forces
With the largest military and the most experience in the art of warfare, Earth has the most powerful and most capable combat force in the Solar System. It is composed of a large (some would say bloated) interstellar fleet as its primary asset, with other divisions offering a supporting defensive role. The ESAF has been involved in limited engagements with the Martian Confederacy during its attempts at independence.

Military of the Martian Confederacy
The Military of the Martian Confederacy comes in as a close second to the ESAF. It bears the second largest military force, with a strong emphasis on using the military to assist and serve civilian life. Most resources are in the Interstellar Navy and Home Guard, both of which are often tasked with protecting and assisting civilian interests. The Martian Military has had clashes with Galilea Prime, caused by labor disputes on Ganymede which caused major crackdowns by the relatively oppressive government.

Galilean Protection Forces
The Galilean Protection Forces work in service of the ruling heads of Galilea Prime, and thus generally focus on protecting industry. Colonial Guard soldiers are often seen protecting cargo shipments, enforcing order in manufacturing centers, and maintaining the peace as national policing forces. Galilea Prime also has a robust intelligence agenda, maintained in conjunction by Spec Ops and the Rangers. The Foreign Legion also serves to spread positive beliefs about the government through foreign inductees.

Outer Planetary Armed Forces
The Outer Planetary Armed Forces are a limited military force, primarily made up of cargo vessels that work as privateers in exchange for weaponry and monetary compensation. For 3 months in a year, privateers perform missions for the Fleet, often involving scouting and exploration into the Kuiper Belt. In the event of war, all vessels contracted as privateers are prepared to fight for the sovereignty of the League.
