The Van Diemen’s Volunteer Defence Corporation is a free band of citizens, united for the commonwealth of our members. We seek to expand upon the righteous ideals of the UEE and fight against terror and lawlessness.


The Van Diemen Volunteers ( VDV ) was formed by a resilient and battle hardened division of the UEE.

They were stationed on the border of UEE and Vanduul space and sustained heavy losses holding territory against the constant onslaught from this alien threat as well as many criminal factions living on the fringes.

These soldiers soon became disillusioned as the Major General in charge failed to support their ranks sufficiently in order to curtail the losses.
Years passed with this continued indifference to their plight.
The ranking officers had seen too much and could no longer stand by and allow the slaughter to continue unabated.
Here we see the creation of what is now known as the VDV.
These ranking officers decided it was time to part ways with the UEE and forge their own path.
Most of the division followed, loyal to those who had shown them unwavered support and brotherhood right from the start.
They took with them the same values for which they had fought and died.
They would still uphold the law and protect the innocent from all those that wish harm.
But in becoming the VDV they could do this unencumbered by the bureaucracy that had sent so many of their brothers and sisters to their deaths.

We stand for what is JUST
We stand together as ONE
We stand as the VDV
