Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

The first colony on Lee was founded by settlers from New Macao,[4] and Lee was a member of the Capellan Hegemony during the four decades the Hegemony existed. As a border world within the Capellan Hegemony, Lee was subject to heavy attacks from Kluanian pirates in 2305 and 2306. Hired by the Sarna Supremacy during the Capellan-Supremacy War, the pirates inflicted heavy damage on a number of Capellan border worlds, forcing the Hegemony to constantly redeploy troops to defend it's worlds rather than continuing to stage attacks on Sarna.[2]

When the successor to the Hegemony, the Capellan Commonality, signed the Acala Pact with the Federated Suns in 2345,[3] Lee became a part of the Federated Suns.[4] In 2363 the Prime Minister of the Capellan Commonality, Selek Tucas, recalled his brother from New Avalon - his brother being the Commonality Ambassador. The Ambassador vanished mysteriously on the way back to Capellan space, and Tucas used this as a pretext for a general mobilization amongst the nations he'd made allies within the Capellan Zone. By the end of 2363, the combined strike force included units from the Capellan Commonality, the Tikonov Grand Union and the St. Ives Mercantile League. The strike force represented the best of the armed forces from the various states, including the Capellan Reserve Cavalry, Morcock's Rangers, the Seluk's Principia, the 1st and 3rd Tikonov Lancers, Seneca's Fusiliers and the Prime Minister's household guards.[5]

The strike force landed on Lee only to discover that it had been betrayed; someone, most likely Premiere Alexi Nimzovich of the Sarna Supremacy, had given Reynard Davion of the Federated Suns warning of the impending attack. Davion had moved eight crack regiments to Lee in secret before the strike force landed, and the resulting two-day battle destroyed all bar a handful of units of Capellan infantry and armor.[5] The defeat on Lee resulted in a political crisis that removed Tucas from power, as well as enabling the Federated Suns to invade and capture seven assorted systems from the St. Ives Mercantile Association, and to launch attacks against various of the Tikonov Grand Union worlds - including Tikonov itself.[45]

The Jihad[edit]

Lee was one of ten worlds assaulted by the CCAF during the third week of March 3069, a wave of attacks that formed a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, the Capellan counteroffensive against the Capellan March in defiance of Duke George Hasek's campaign Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE.[46]
