The United Earth Defense Force was the defense service maintained by United Earth in the late 32nd century, following Earth's secession from the United Federation of Planets a century prior.

History

Around 3089, roughly twenty years after the Burn devastated the galaxy, the Federation and Starfleet relocated its headquarters elsewhere as Earth believed it was a potential target for whatever or whoever caused the Burn. Sometime after the Burn and the relocation of the Federation and Starfleet, Earth seceded from the Federation and rebuilt themselves to be self-sustainable.

By the following century, the United Earth Defense Force had replaced Starfleet as Earth's main defense. Through 3189, the Defense Force had been in conflict with Wen and his raiders. That conflict came to an end with the intervention of the USS Discovery. (DIS: "People of Earth")
