Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary Description[edit]

During the time of the Star League, the planet required a solar shade to reduce the amount of light the planet received. This was more than likely part of a DoME terraforming project.[36]

Planetary History[edit]

Star League[edit]

In 2761, Joshua was attacked by a pirate force of BattleMechs. These raiders took possession of the planet's solar shade controls and held the population hostage. Less than a day later, the 74th Royal Dragoon Regiment of the Star League Defense Force arrived on world via a pirate jump point and took back the solar shade controls.[37]

Succession Wars[edit]

Second Succession War[edit]

Joshua vanishes from maps during the 2nd Succession War.[11][12]
