* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' ExpandedUniverse revealed that there were rebel elements fighting against the UNSC, some of which continued their struggle even after the Covenant invasion had begun. The Spartan program was originally implemented to help put down the revolts. The post-''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' media, starting with ''Literature/HaloGlasslands'', note that there are Insurrectionist-leaning planets that were ignored or missed entirely by the Covenant that are threatening to start the civil war right back up again, and with the UNSC in tatters they might actually win this time, especially with the collapse of the Covenant resulting in a lot of its high-tech military hardware being sold on the black market.
** The expanded universe also makes it rather clear that the UNSC is ''not'' a particularly nice government in a lot of ways, even if [[BlackAndGreyMorality the Covenant is a lot worse]]. At the same time, the expanded universe also makes it clear that the Insurrectionists freely use terrorist tactics on civilian populations, including one infamous incident alluded to in [[VideoGame/HaloReach Halsey's Journal]] where a terrorist group killed two ''million'' civilians with a ''nuke''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' mentions the Mutagen Wars, where the Earth government [[TheEmpire The Hub]] fights against a planet over the right to self-govern and genetic modifications. This leads to [[PyroManiac flame-thrower-wielding psychos]] and [[RecylcedINSPACE sci-fi]] [[BackfromtheDead necromancers]] fighting against genetically modified bug people in a hellish war, leading to the Hub's victory.

* DavidWeber, author of the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' novels, also wrote 4 novels with Steve White set in the universe of ''Starfire'', a tabletop wargame. In one of the novels, ''Insurrection'', the Terran Empire has grown so huge that its central government no longer reflects the interests of the Fringe Worlds, instead listening only to the core Heart Worlds and the the closer-to-home [[MegaCorp Corporate]] Worlds. So, the Fringe Worlds declare their independence, and form their own multi-star-system nation. Naturally, the Terran Empire has to send its own fleets out to the Fringe Worlds to try and regain control.
