Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Melissia was a part of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic and was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth war.[13]

Jihad[edit]

During the Jihad those members of the Estates General who either had the fortune to not be on Tharkad when the Word of Blake struck at the Lyran capital, or who managed to later escape from the siege there, convened as a quorum on Melissia. Although the Estates Genereal took on responsibility for managing the more mundane matters of state during the Jihad, they also managed to achieve a greater degree of authority over the infrastructure of the Alliance than was historically the case for their station. This was symptomatic of a problem across the Alliance that Archon Adam Steiner would struggle to deal with in the years after the Jihad; the chaos of the Jihad and the changes put in place due to Archon Peter Steiner-Davion's time on Tharkad during the Blakist siege resulted in a significant degree of power ending up in the hands of numerous other groups and people, who would later compete with the central Lyran government in the 3080s as the Alliance rebuilt itself.[38]
