Owner History[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

Halifax was originally a part of the Timbuktu Province of the Rim Worlds Republic and was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth war.[12]

Clan Invasin Era[edit]

Starting in 3053, Halifax was used as a base of operations for Comstar's Explorer Corps Anti-Spinward Operations Area, with the blessings of Melissa Steiner and Victor Ian Steiner-Davion. However, with the secession of the Lyran Alliance, and increasingly cordial relations between Katherine Steiner-Davion and Thomas Marik, the Explorer Corps have all but abandoned their exploration efforts originating from Lyran space. [37]

Dark Age[edit]

In 3084 or 3085 Halifax was hit by a pirate force, possibly originating in the Rim Commonality, and which mustered at least a combined-arms battalion in strength. On hand were half of the 25th Arcturan Guards LCT, who promptly smashed the pirate assault, breaking the pirate force and leaving the survivors to run with more than a third of their numbers dead on the battlefield.[38]
