Planetary History[edit]

The Succession Wars[edit]

Baxley was a long time member of the so-called "Skid Row" worlds. Located on the edge of a vast expanse of uninhabited worlds called the Point Barrow-Dothan Desert, Baxley was barely able to support its own population's agricultural needs and also lacked the metal and mineral resources that might have attracted outside investment. Amongst the poorest and most ignorant worlds in the Davion realm, during the Succession Wars, Baxley contributed more potential recruits to ComStar than any other world in the Federated Suns, the planet's impoverished and uneducated population seeing the Blessed Order's representives as near demi-gods and treating them with greater reverence than those of New Avalon Catholic Church.[1]
