- For other groups called "the Alliance", see alliance.
When Captain Jonathan Archer and Lieutenant Malcolm Reed were captured on the surface, their captors, led by General Gosis, believed that they were spies from the Alliance. In an effort to avoid cultural contamination, Archer convinced Gosis that they were indeed from the Alliance, equipped with experimental advanced technology, and that their Human physiologies were a result of genetic engineering. After they were rescued, Archer conceded that they might have caused damage anyway, by changing Gosis' people's perceptions of the Alliance. (ENT: "The Communicator")
