Owner History[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

During the Star League Era Necromo was best known as a minor shipping and transportation hub between the Capella and St. Ives Commonalities. During the Succession Wars Era it became more important, and was frequently raided by the Federated Suns.[24]

While a relatively undeveloped world of rolling hills and forests, Necromo was of immeasurable importance to the Capellan military thanks to the self-contained DropShip repair facility and shipyard located in the system. The sole industry of the planet, with all goods and services having to be imported from off-world, operations in the system were so secret that only the intensely loyal workers were allowed on world, with no visits from family members and stringent censorship of all inbound and outbound communication.[1][24]

By 3055 the Maskirova had relaxed several of these restrictions. Coincidentally, the Aris Memorial Yards were boosted into orbit the same year, placing them beyond the reach of any dissidents who may have attacked the facility. As a result of the increased workload, the system's population boomed.[2][24]

Necromo's only real city, Landingplace, was located on world and featured a transparent dome so citizens could see the Aris Memorial Yards as they floated around the sky.[2][24]

These features made the location ideal for shielding the production of the Confederation's WarShip projects, but unfortunately made the world a prime target of the Word of Blake during their Jihad. It faced orbital bombardment in 3071.[25] A passing merchant DropShip reported that they traveled through the system and heard no electronic signatures of any kind.[26][27] Later investigation determined that on the 20th of August 3071, the day all communications with Necromo suddenly ceased, the world had been bombarded by several rogue asteroids and then assaulted by at least one Word of Blake Shadow Division and possibly more than one.[28][29] Despite the bombardment of Necromo and the overwhelming forces deployed by the Word of Blake, the Blakists would still lose the Essex-class CSJ Dark Claw in the Necromo system in 3072.[30]

Prior to Necromo's destruction, the world had been contested in 3068 as a part of Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE, the attack on the Confederation conducted by Capellan March troops under the orders of Federated Suns Duke George Hasek. Capellan WarShips secured the system on the 18th of February 3069 as a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, the CCAF counter-offensive.[31]
