The ESD was founded two years after the [[War of 1996]] and coinciding with political unity between Earth's nations. Upon its inception, the ESD began a worldwide publicity and recruitment campaign. Furthermore, the ESD was also tasked with reverse-engineering alien technology left over from the 1996 invasion. The result of the research led to enhance humanity's capability in consumer, space, and military technology, and the colonization of Earth's [[moon]], [[Mars]], and Saturn's moon [[Rhea]].

The ESD was first headed by Director Strain, who pushed for an expedited test-flight of a hybrid fighter at the 2007 [[ESD Spring Expo]]. The fighter exploded mid-flight, killing the pilot, [[Steven Hiller]]. To prevent further government negligence, Levinson was appointed director by U.S. President [[Lucas Jacobs]] after the accident.<ref name="IDC" />

The ESD would eventually test its mandate when Earth was again invaded during the 20th anniversary of the War of 1996 in 2016. The arrival of the aliens—in the form of a [[Harvester Mothership|massive mothership]]—took the ESD by surprise in which the Moon Base and Earth's Orbital Defense System were utterly destroyed. The ESD later attempted to mount a counterattack on the mothership in an effort to eliminate the aliens' [[Harvester Queen (IDR)|queen]] but only to fail. Despite of its losses, the ESD plotted a second elimination attempt on the queen. Having come into contact with a benevolent alien entity called the [[Sphere]], an enemy of the aliens who possessed vital information, the ESD used the Sphere's presence to emulate a decoy to lure the alien queen into a trap. The ESD ultimately succeeded in drawing the queen away from her ship and killing her, thus rendering the invaders inactive and forcing the mothership to retreat from Earth.
