This is about the short story. For the event itself, see Great Rebellion.

The Great Rebellion was a story in Great Space Battles. It told the story of Harcourt Apseley and his Great Rebellion, as well as describing the fates of the two main corporations from the first book, Consolidated Aerospace and Avery Astronautics.

The timing of the story is difficult; while it obvious is set after the Proxima Wars, and almost certainly before the Laguna Wars, its lack of mention in either the first book, or The Laguna Wars, is somewhat troubling, but can be explained due to the nature of the books themselves.
