Planetary History[edit]

During the Reunification War, the world of Granera was used as a Star League Defense Force staging post and supply cache for the SLDF task force invading the Magistracy of Canopus. As a world in the rear area, Granera was assumed to be safe from threats when the invasion of the Magistracy began in 2577; the Magistracy Armed Forces would disprove this theory in early 2578.[5]

Intelligence received by the commander of the MAF, Colonel Adam Buquoy, indicated that the second-line troops acting as garrisons on various supply worlds throughout the border region of the Free Worlds League were ill-prepared for any attack and that where plans for the defence of supply worlds existed, they weren't being practised. Buquoy acted decisively on this information; in addition to personally leading four mercenary units against the important supply world of Meadowvale, he dispatched units to strike at three other supply and staging worlds - Ayn Tarma, Granera and Saonara.[5]

Granera was successfully raided by the 2nd Canopian Light Horse, although the Canopian forces took heavy losses at the hands of the 1st Marik Militia who had rotated on world and surprised the Light Horse with their presence on the world. The attacks on the various supply and staging worlds attack were another shocking surprise for the SLDF task force, coming hot on the heels of the Canopian naval ambush at Vakarel and the rapid redeployments that had bloodied VII Corps on Cranston. While the loss of the supplies was a major blow to the SLDF operations, more damaging was the knowledge that the theatre of operations was no longer confined to the Magistracy itself and highlighted that the SLDF would need to defend rear areas previously considered safe. This again forced a change in the SLDF strategy, with the SLDF commander, Captain-General Marion Marik ordering a temporary cessation of hostilities while supply routes were reorganised, escorts arranged and garrisons bolstered. The raids also bought the MAF six months to rebuild and rearm.[5]

After the Reunification War, Granera developed from being a military staging post into a fully-fledged colony world.[29]
