Owner History[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Great X spent most of its existence as a waystation for LCAF troops on their way to the Draconis Combine front. After the Clan Invasion the Exes (as the inhabitants call themselves) were surprised to find themselves near a front line. Their proximity to the Clan Jade Falcon front made Great X the perfect place for the LAAF to establish a fortified depot system. The smaller continent, Bastion, received most of this effort, with several new transshipment hubs being built to support troops heading to fight the Falcons.[1]


In 3070 the 25th Arcturan Guards were assigned to garrison Great X.[1] They oversaw the fortification efforts that began that same year. During the early Jihad Great X was bypassed by the Clans and the Word of Blake, but the supply depots that had been constructed were soon emptied and the supplies forwarded to Arc-Royal and other worlds. In December 3070 survivors from both those fronts landed on the world to rebuild. Among them were the Knights of St. Cameron, Clan Wolf-in-Exile's Second Wolf Legion, and the Thorin FTM. Fortunately the Inner Sphere commands were still present in 3071 as Clan Jade Falcon raided the planet in 3071.[28][29] The Knights of St. Cameron, Arcturan Guards, and Thorin FTM faced the Jade Falcon's Delta Galaxy.[1] July 10, 3055The Corsairs are ambushed by a Kell Hound/Wolf Naval forceKell Hounds, 31st Wolf Solahma ClusterThe CorsairsThe Corsairs detected one of the Wolf ships before the ambush could be sprung and were able to escape with no losses.
