The Turkana IV Alliance was the name given to one of the two most powerful cadres on the planet Turkana IV, site of a failed Federation colony. Along with the Coalition, the Alliance was given emergency powers by the Turkana colonial government in the 2330s in an attempt to quash the civil war that was raging across the planet. However, the two factions used their powers to eliminate the remaining cadres, and then the government.
By 2366, the Alliance's command structure consisted of two primary headquarters, and thirteen ancillary bases, and they controlled half of the colony. The Alliance kidnapped and held hostage two pilots from the Arcos following that vessel's destruction in high orbit and the crash landing of the escape pod on the planet.
