Planetary History[edit]

Star League[edit]

The 5th Fleet (SLDF) used the Midale system as their homeport. The orbital facilities, while basic, were enough to keep the fleet resupplied while handling minor repairs. Most of the command and control facilities were located on world while the SLS Duke of York was regularly in orbit.[49]

The Jihad[edit]

Midale was attacked by Taurian Defense Force troops on the 15th of February 3070; the TDF units were intended to be reinforcements for the Taurian forces fighting in the Pleiades Cluster, and the attack on Midale resulted in all of the TDF reinforcements being destroyed by the defending forces.[50]

In response to the asteroid bombardment of Taurus and evidence that implicated the Federated Suns, the Taurian Concordat launched a second invasion of the Federated Suns during the Jihad. Midale was an early target, captured during late June 3074. The Taurian conquest of Midale involved using nuclear weapons against AFFS pickets, as did the campaigns on Brockway and Bromhead, resulting in more than ten million Federated Suns civilian and military deaths.[37][38] Many of these nuclear weapons were launched from the Quixote-class frigate TCS Vendetta, which was responsible for an estimated six million deaths on Midale alone.[51]
