Early History[edit]

Settled at some point before the end of the Age of War, Lone Star was the regional capital of the Lone Star Province within the Terran Hegemony.[2][6][5]

Amaris Civil War[edit]

During the height of the Star League Lone Star had develped into a thriving world with a large population with a significant industrial output and was a fairly major world within the Terran Hegemony. In common with other such worlds across the Hegemony, the Star League Defense Force had built several Castles Brian across Lone Star and there was still an SLDF garrison in place when Stefan Amaris launched his coup that began the Amaris Civil War on the 27th of December 2766.[8]

Amaris had detailed a substantial force of Rim Worlds Republic force to subdue Lone Star, but the initial attacks on the 27th of December failed, leaving the SLDF forces still in control of the bulk the Castles Brian and determined to resist. The Republican forces resorted to the extensive use of weapons of mass destruction to prepare the way for their ground assaults, and as a result the civilian population of Lone Star suffered greatly, as did the local infrastructure. The exact death toll incurred in the Republican campaign isn't known, but estimates place it anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands.[8]
