|Parent Formation||Word of Blake Protectorate Militia|
When new intelligence in late 3076 reported the Ghost Bear Dominion's latest military forays would focus on Dieron, Protectorate officials augmented the planet’s defenses. Then in early 3077 additional reinforcements in the form of five Protectorate Militias and two frontline divisions brought a level of military force previously unheard of in Dieron's history: a staggering twenty-two Level III formations and heavy orbital support. The exact WoB forces numbered Second Division, Third Division, Eighth Division, Fourteenth Division, Nineteenth Division, Twenty-third Division, and five Protectorate Militia (Liberty, Fletcher, Acamar, Asta, Milton) which were moved from their planets in the Protectorate as a surprise to the invasion forces.
During the three-month assault, once Fortress Dieron main gate fell apart, the Blakists waged a scorched-earth campaign on the rest of the planet. Military manufacturing centers became frequent targets of sabotage, with critical Star League-era components destroyed and several complexes seeded with toxic waste or heavy radiation. The Word did avoid a large amount of collateral damage to civilian industries and interests during this campaign, however. Most non-critical infrastructure and services damage occurred from the intense and savage combat waged in and through civilian sectors as Omega and Rho Galaxies pursued the Liberty, Acamar, and Milton Protectorate Militias.
By the end of the campaign nearly ninety percent of the Blakist occupying force had been wiped out, so this command was shattered as an effective unit.
