Unit Brief[edit]

The Asta Protectorate Militia Division is one of the many militias raised by Word of Blake to defend the Word of Blake Protectorate. The unit was deployed in Asta.

History[edit]

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.

After nearly a month of fighting through the tight confines of the mountain passes leading to Mount Shanyu, the bulk of the Eighth Dieron Regulars arrived at one of the two gates to Fortress Dieron. It took two days of constant assault for the Eighth to breach the mountainous wall. The DCMS troops then held the gate from a concentrated Blakist counterattack while Clan Ghost Bear's Alpha Galaxy rushed through the gap. But the Clan Caught in the open, the warriors of Alpha Galaxy became easy targets for constant artillery fire. In order to give more time to the Clan forces, the battered remains of the Eighth charged the oncoming Asta Protectorate Militia, giving Khan Aletha Kabrinski and her warriors time to overrun the lower artillery positions. With the destruction of their artillery nests and the arrival of the Second Dieron Regulars and Omega Galaxy, Blakist control of the Fortress's main gate fell apart.

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.[1]
