The Broken Union War, also called the Gashifa Civil War (by Terrans), the Dozen Fronts War, and argued by some to constitute a Third Intercontinental War, was a period of civil unrest and armed conflict that broke out among a large number of factions on Menem seventy years after the foundation of the First Gishefa. The conflict ended with the signing of the Accord in Orbit, brokered by members of the Terran diplomatic mission to Menem aboard the starship Ambassador in orbit over Menem.
