Terminal is a non-governmental group (though it is well known to have close ties with both the Orb Union and Sanc Kingdom) that engages in information gathering and brokering. They are dedicated to bringing peace to the Earth Sphere. It is a poorly kept secret that Terminal has a para-military branch, the former Three Ships Alliance that has since expanded to include Katharon, Celestial Being, defectors from ZAFT and the Earth Federation and parts of the AEUG and Karaba. The League Militaire also has close ties with Terminal, however their primary objective is to defend the Earth Sphere from threats the Earth Federation cannot defeat alone. The Bisidian often cooperate with Terminal as well, and provide resources to them as well as lending their fighting strength. They are known to have ties with the Earth Federation military, especially the Preventers and Londo Bell, however they are outside of the Earth Federation and have at times opposed them, especially groups like the A-Laws, Phantom Pain and Titans. They also have sympathizers within ZAFT. Terminal has it’s own mobile suit production capabilities, through “The Factory”, who primarily produce ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper units.
