Planetary Info[edit]

Firgrove is a nearly unique combination of environments. Along the equator it has one continent, Thurles, which is dominated by deserts. The second continent, Ormond, has an ecology based on vast peatbog plains. Most of the world's cities are on Ormond.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

During the twenty-eight century the significance of Firgrove and its shipyards was such that the planet would be home to the Ninth Syrtis Fusiliers for more than fifty years.[39]

Jihad[edit]

On the 19th of June 3080 the Taurian Concordat attempted to strike at the Clyde Shipyards by raiding the Firgrove system with the Quixote-class WarShip TCS Vendetta.[40] A fragment of a news broadcast being recorded by the TNS reporter Joshua MacDermott indicated that the Vendetta had been hit by several explosions within a minute of beginning to manoeuvre after emerging from the jump point, with the First Officer of the Vendetta, Able Ritcher, indicating that the Vendetta had emerged into - or moved into - a minefield of some kind. In addition to the damage inflicted by the explosions, the footage indicated that the Vendetta was being targeted with capital missiles before retreating from the system.[41]

In the wake of the Jihad the Clyde Shipyards expanded their production, but as late as mid-3081 were still unable to produce at maximum capacity because of Blakist sabotage.[42]
