In 2547, a group of radical Skrellian separatists applied for membership to the Colonial Assembly, but were denied to maintain a positive relationship with the Skrell. The issue sparked a debate over allowing xenosapients into the SCG; the debate has not been formally resolved.
Numerous political parties exist in the SCG. Major parties include the following:
The SCG [[Defence_Forces|Defense Forces]] consist of the SCG Army and the SCG Fleet. The army handles operations on planets, moons, or larger planetoids, while the Fleet, along with its Marine Corps, holds responsibility for operations in space, aboard habitats or vessels, and within the gateway network.
