Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

The world of Blue Diamond had the misfortune to be struck by a plague in 2766 that swept through the crops grown on the planet. At the time, Blue Diamond was close to the border between the Lyran Commonwealth and the Terran Hegemony, and the planetary leaders made the decision to approach the Hegemony for assistance rather than contacting the planet Summer, which was Blue Diamond's closest significant Commonwealth neighbour. The elders from Blue Diamond set out for the Terran Hegemony and were never heard from again. The plague continued to ravage Blue Diamond and a third of the total planetary population died before assistance from the Commonwealth could arrive to help; it was only much later that it was discovered that the elders had arrived in the Hegemony in the midst of the coup launched by Stefan Amaris, and that they had been captured by Rim Worlds Republic forces. The Republicans had tortured and executed the elders after declaring them to be Commonwealth spies.[27]
