The Turkana IV Alliance was the name given to one of the two cadres on the planet Turkana IV, site of a failed Earth colony, in 2367. Along with the Coalition, the Alliance was given police 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 2367, 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 crewmembers from the Arcos following that vessel's destruction in high orbit and the crash landing of the escape pod on the planet.
