Owner History[edit]

Planetary Info[edit]

The planetary capital was the city of Shinzoka. The city itself was located near a swampy region.[47]

Only 15% of Moore's planetary surface is land, the rest of it is covered in oceans. Due to the high water content, most of the land is swamp. Moore was settled for the large supplies of uranium, germanium, and titanium. During the Age of War, the Terran Hegemony and Draconis Combine arranged co-ownership of the world, allowing both nations to exploit the resources on the world. During the Amaris Civil War, Stephan Amaris allowed the Combine forces to garrison the world, making it a de facto Combine world. After the fall of the Star League the Combine's ownership became official. Over the next centuries the Combine jealously guarded the world, repulsing numerous attacks by the Lyran Commonwealth.[1]

Planetary History[edit]


During the Jihad the Word of Blake took control of Moore to gain access to the extensive uranium mines.[1] The attack on Moore began during the first week of April 3069,[37] and the invading mercenaries became involved in a running battle that took place in Moore's largest methane swamp. There an exploding BattleMech detonated several hidden pockets of methane gas. These explosions triggered a massive firestorm which blew across the main continent and destroyed nearly everything in its path, including the capital city.[1]

As the allied coalition created by Devlin Stone began striking against Word of Blake Protectorate worlds the combined Clan Ghost Bear and Clan Snow Raven task force which had agreed to support the coalition struck at a number of Blakist worlds on the 21st of July 3076. Moore was one of the worlds targeted by the Clan forces, along with the nearby worlds of Dyev, Kervil, Ko, Lambrecht and Sabik;[48][49] the Ghost Bears attacked Moore with Theta Galaxy, a primarily defensive Galaxy that had been moved into an offensive role due to the damage taken by the other Beta Wave forces during the attack on Ascella shortly before. Theta performed poorly during the campaign, taking heavier losses than would be expected.[50]

After beginning reconstruction efforts, Coordinator Hohiro Kurita asked Devlin Stone that the Republic of the Sphere always remember the DCMS troops who fought to protect the world. As a result, Duncan Enterprises named their first vehicle, the Giggins after Sho-sa Eric Giggins.[1]
