New Haven Chronicles
Here's the gist:
In the Mid-twenty-first century, the Pax Tecum Corporation decided to invest in humanities future among the stars. While the rest of Earth became bogged down with growing economical, ecological, and environmental problems, the Pax were able to gain a firm foothold on Luna and Mars. In a little over a century, the Pax became the prominent supplier of space technologies, firmly establishing its dominance among the stars.
When earth finally got it's act together and followed the Pax into space, under the jurisdiction of the New United Nations, the Pax were ready to come home. By this time however, the Pax were dieing of a degenerate condition caused by a lack of sunlight and long term exposure to recycled oxygen. Requiring regular treatments, it was only a matter of time before the citizens of the Pax Corporation would die for their cause. Their only choice was to return to Earth until a long term solution could be found.
With the UN pushing for more and more sanctions against the Pax, particularly in the number of food shipments, it was all the Pax could do to hold their own. They had no choice but to force the issue of their return.
On July seventh, the Pax struck the Luna shipyards on the Dark side of the moon, obliterating the dry docks and crippling the fledgling UN fleet.
The UN quickly found it had a war on its hands that it was ill prepared to fight. They scrambled to muster a standing fleet and Marine ground force.
The Pax on the other hand had spent the better part of a century, perfecting their space based technologies, both scientific and combat. What they lacked in numbers, they made up for in experience and technological superiority, a fact they made sure the UN was aware of at every opportunity.
Proceeding from their bases on Mars, the Pax quickly retook the Moon and established a decisive blockade around earth; cutting off the crucial fuel supplies needed to power all Fusion powered vessels. Without regular shipments, the UN was forced to tap it's fuel reserves on Earth and the war began to ground to a standstill as the Pax seemed willing to simply wait for the UN's fuel supply to run out.
Now, with mere days before the last of the UN's fuel reserves are expended, the end of the war is finally in sight. But the fighting is far from over.
