    Edit: AbsolutioN IX & FayMoon have pointed out in the comments you can unlock this achievement and "Monarch Abides" in a single playthrough with a carefully timed manual save.

    At any moment during this mission, you can SAVE the game and decide to give the targeting module to Sanjar, Graham or Zora, win the battle for selected faction and get the alternative achievement "Monarch Abides". Then reload back and finish "Canid's Cradle" with peace solution to unlock "Peace in Our Time" achievement.
    Also, for this achievement, you will need to make sure you complete the optional opjectives "wipe the terminals" for Sanjar and choose food supplies / save the Van Noys (Graham / Zora), during their respective quests.


    The following solution was taken from PowerPyx's trophy guide - full credit to PowerPyx.

    This trophy and Monarch Abides are mutually exclusive, you can’t do them both in the same playthrough without using save backups.

    For this trophy after you’ve stopped the radio transmissions and got the info sent to Phineas or talked Hiram into working for the board a UDL ship will crash into the planet. Go get the targeting module, then you need to talk Sanjar and Zora into working with each other for their own best interests.

    To have the Iconoclasts agree you need to have Zora overthrow Graham. To allow this to happen in the two prior quests you do for the Iconoclasts you need to side with what Zora wants, getting the extra food supplies from the smuggler, then getting the Twins back from the press instead of having them go in and help you. After that once you have got the targeting module you can speak to her again and she’ll ask you to get some mission logs, which leads to the discovery that Graham orchestrated the pirate attacks. You then need to agree with her to overthrow Graham and kill him. You can then talk Zora into potentially working with Sanjar if you have 55 Persuasion, or other skills around that level.

    Sanjar can then be talked into working with Zora if you find her report from the Rizzo’s Lab in the same area you get the items for Sublight. You then talk them into meeting at the OSI church just outside the city, where you can basically give mostly neutral and encouraging answers to have them talk it out and agree to work together. Once they do you’ll complete the quest and earn this trophy.

    Apostle92627You need a minimum of 55 in persuade so Zora will agree to negotiations. Unless you're able to get Carlotta to keep the shipments coming or not tell Zora they've stopped.

    - These are 2 different MISSABLE "Story Options" which you CAN acquire in the same play-through making the right decisions and using Saves.
    MONARCH ABIDES is easy to acquire where PEACE IN OUR TIME takes quite a few certain decisions needing to be made that are easily missable!! Follow this guide to make sure you get both w/o having to do multiple play-throughs!

    *This WILL include some spoilers although I leave out most of the details, but if you don't at least read this ahead of time you are bound to miss the Peace In Our Time Achievement / Trophy

    - These one's are a bit later in the story after you get to Monarch.
    For Mightier Than The Sword (secret) & Monarch Abides (secret) you have to make decisions early in the story to obtain, so go to the guide there to avoid missing those.

    ------> STAGE 1 | "Radio Free Monarch" <------

    *For PEACE IN OUR TIME you must complete these [optional] quests during the "Radio Free Monarch" Main Quest to get Zora involved and to be able to use a peaceful [option] during the quest "Canid's Cradle":

    During "The Commuter" [Iconoclasts - Graham/Zora] :
    - "Get Extra Supplies from Carlotta"
    (for Zora instead of High-Capacity Cartridges for Graham)

    During "Pay for the Printer" [Iconoclasts - Graham/Zora] :
    - "Retrieve Zora's Team (Van Noys)"

    During "BOLT with His Name" [MSI - Sanjar] :
    - "Wipe Any Terminals in the Building"
    (located in the 1st floor of the ARMS building, underneath the objective)

    ------> STAGE 2 | "Canid's Cradle" <------

    After you get the targeting module from the fallen ship you may only have the 2 options for the "Canid's Cradle" quest, giving the module to either of the 2 faction leaders. SAVE HERE!!

    } Give targeting Module to Sanjar, Graham, or Zora  and win the war for Monarch Abides *THEN RE-LOAD SAVE and continue w/ the peaceful solution

    To acquire Peace In Our Time you must talk to Zora @ Amber Heights in the building to the right of the one Graham chills in.
    - She will ask you to do a small quest, once finished she will "need some time" before making a decision. (Can probably just fast travel somewhere and come back)
    - I completed a side-quest and came back to her hangin' out on the 1st floor. Go up to her to have a convo, be on her side and end up taking out Graham.

    ***NOW instead of giving the Targeting Module to Zora or Sanjar, CONVINCE Zora to work with Sanjar, which will unlock the 3rd [option] that is basically to bring peace b/w MSI & Iconoclasts. Continue with Canid's Cradle quest AVOIDING GIVING THE MODULE TO EITHER ONE

    Completing the small quest Sanjar gives you sets up a Negotiation b/w Zora & Sanjar. Simply go to the Church, SAVE to be safe, and complete the negotiation to acquire Peace In Our Time !!!!

    Doing this stops you from having to do a new play-through! :)

    DucKy BaByI don't think this solution clearly captures the massive plurality of ways of completing this quest. It had me thinking I could get it because I didn't delete the reviews on the terminals. However you can. This is a very layered and nuanced mission. However, good effort and I know this definitely would have worked for you.
