Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

In 2784 the Lyran Commonwealth reclaimed the military outposts and administrative centers on Gram that had been operated by the Star League. Gram wasn't the only world where this happened; using a similar process on all three worlds, the Lyrans also reclaimed similar facilities on both Lovinac and Stanzach. In all three cases the non-Lyran personnel working within these facilities were offered jobs within the local government bureaucracy, a reflection of Archon Jennifer Steiner actively attempting to retaining the expertise possessed by those personnel left within the dwindling, isolated Terran Hegemony agencies that still existed through treating them with respect.[42]

Succession wars[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Gram was successfully conquered by the Draconis Combine in November of 2785 following a diversionary raid on the planet of Bone-Norman[8] and similar raids on Barcelona and Somerset; the raids had persuaded the General of the Armies, Paul Steiner, to redeploy more Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces units to the Periphery border in case the raids were indications of either resurgent Rim Worlds Republic forces or a potential invasion from the Combine. As a result, the Sixth Donegal Guards had been redeployed away from Gram, shortly ahead of the arrival of the Seventh Proserpina Hussars and the Twelfth Benjamin Regulars. The planetary militia's infantry and armor were swiftly decimated by the lighter elements of the DCMS forces.[43]

Dark Age[edit]

The gojo berries harvested on Gram earned a degree of fame and were noted not just for their sweetness but also for the potent alcoholic spirit that could be produced from the berries. The gojo harvest attracted traders each year, and in 3136 the harvest saw a Circle of Equals fought between Warrior-Merchant Najeh Hammond, a Clan Sea Fox ristar and Tiburon pilot, and a renegade Clan Jade Falcon MechWarrior employed by a pair of Draconis Combine with a ruthless reputation named the Yung Brothers. Hammond won, despite his Tiburon being heavily outweighed by his opponent's Ryoken II.[44]
