Planetary History[edit]

Milton began its fast growth as a near-paradise planet. The industry of Milton was at its peak when Terra ceased all trade with worlds further than one jump away.[1] As Director-General James McKenna began his third "campaign of persuasion" in 2333 to annex former Terran Alliance colonies and bring them into the Terran Hegemony, Milton was the second planet to be targeted by the Hegemony Armed Forces.[4]

The Hegemony later used Milton's trade problems as a part of the campaign to reintegrate the planet, and soon industry begun to develop again, until the Amaris Civil War began. Amaris' troops pillaged Milton, leading to its slow collapse. During the Succession Wars, battles between the Free Worlds League and the Lyran Commonwealth led to the destruction of all industry on the Phronx and Selajia continents and lead to their total biological and chemical contamination. In contrast to the Succession Wars, during the Jihad, Milton avoided any significant damage and experienced major industrial growth later after the conflict.[1]

The Jihad[edit]

Following the invasion of the Free Worlds League by the Skye and Bolan Provinces of the Lyran Alliance in what was termed Operation ÜBERSCHATTEN, Marshall Jeremy Brett took command of the local FWLM and launched a counteroffensive, under the name Operation BROKEN FIST. BROKEN FIST went beyond simply attempting to recapture worlds that the Lyrans had seized, as it struck into Lyran space at numerous worlds. Milton was one of the worlds hit and was captured by the League on the 1st of September, 3068.[31] The planet was subsequently incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate, and later liberated by troops fighting on the Lyran front of Operation SCOUR in January 3078.[33]

Planetary Info[edit]

Milton has four continents named Selajia (southern hemisphere), Olquia, Phronx, and Etienne (in the northern hemisphere). It was settled for the large amount of industrial metals and radioactive materials present in its crust.[1]
