beginning governments around the world approached
the new mamoth spaceships in the skies with
fighter jets and even missiles. After learning
that fighters are useless as are missiles,
goverments began to welcome the Visitors and
their message of peace.
When presented with
what amounts to clear defeat should a war be
waged goverments often silently and quietly
surrender. Such was true in France during World
War II and such is true in V as well.
The arrival of the Visitors from V at the
United Nations building in New York introduced
the Visitors to the people of the world. The
Secretary General of the UN met with the Supreme
Commander of the visitors. Such a meeting really
showcases the hierarchy of governmental authority
that the Visitors themselves represent and
Shortly after this meeting the Visitors alert
the world to terrorist plots to undermine both
local governmental authority as well as peaceful
coexistance with the visitors. With a few images
of propaganda citizens and government leaders
start to buy into this threat. From such early
propaganda sprang forth martial law largely run
and coordinated by local police.
Early on Earthly militaries were slowly and
secretly dismantled. By the second V mini series
the armies of Earth have been completely
supplanted by Visitor Shocktroopers and new
earthly police forces and armies of the conquered
countries they now rule.
