"Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty" (START) refers to two Strangereal treaties aimed at minimizing the number and capabilities of strategic nuclear weapons.[note 1] No information is known on the first treaty; the second treaty is known as START2.
The history of the first START treaty is completely unknown.
- The START treaties are modeled after the real-life ones, namely START I and START II, between the United States of America and Russia (the Soviet Union for START I). However, START II never came into effect in real life; it was superseded by two new treaties, SORT and New START.
