The New Earth Government or NEG is the currently reigning government of Earth. It is likely the Terran Colonial Authority is an NEG offshoot.

The NEG was formed in 2215 by Earth and the United Aligned Worlds, or UAW, near the end of the Human-Skaarj War to restore order on Earth by controlling skirmishes between the major corporations such as the Liandri, the Phayder, Axon, and Izanagi, so Earth could form a unified front against the Skaarj.

In 2216 NEG commandos managed to destroy the Skaarj mothership attacking Earth, causing the Skaarj to retreat, leaving many of Earth's cities in ruins. The attack is recreated in UT2004's AS-Mothership. In 2219 the NEG attempts to assert its authority over these areas, but they are confronted by many rebel groups who are often covertly financed by the great corporations who established bases in the destroyed cities. An NEG attack on a rebel command centers is recreated in AS-FallenCity.

In 2260, during the Corporation Wars, NEG's Thunder Crash force assists in protecting Izanagi's research facility on Lamdon 3 which was however raided and destroyed by a strike force from the Axon. The attack is recreated in UT2004's AS-Glacier.

In 2276 the NEG military recovers "Nexus" prototype missiles stolen by Hellions which were being transported by a convoy on the surface of Taron. This missile type was later used in multiple incidents of colonial suppression. The attack is recreated in UT2004's AS-Convoy.

In 2291 the NEG legalizes "consensual murder", which allows a previously underground event, the "Tournament" to go mainstream. Sponsored by the Liandri these tournaments became known as the Liandri Grand Tournament. NEG's Thunder Crash force also enters the Tournament, and in 2291 one of its members, Malcolm, becomes champion, and stays that way until he is defeated in 2302.
