System History[edit]

Sarna Supremacy[edit]

In 2176 Sarna was the site of the founding of the Sarna Supremacy, the first interstellar nation to form in the Capellan Zone.[4] It was a party of explorers from Sarna who first made contact with the Capellan Holdfast in 2194, established by Jurdan Aris after his flight from the Terran Alliance, although their demand that Capella join the Supremacy was robustly rejected.[5]

Capellan Confederation[edit]

Later, in 2367, the Sarna system was under the control of the fledgling Capellan Confederation.[6] It would remain a Capellan world through 3025.[7][8][9][10][11]

Federated Suns[edit]

By 3030, the Sarna system was under Federated Suns control, a core part of the Sarna March.[12]

Federated Commonwealth[edit]

By 3050, following the merger of the Federated Suns and the Lyran Commonwealth, the Sarna system was officially administered by the new Federated Commonwealth.[13] It would remain a part of this state through 3057.[14]

Sarna Supremacy[edit]

The Sarna system returned to the controll of the re-emerged Sarna Supremacy by 3057.[2] It would remain within that state through 3058.[15]

Capellan Confederation[edit]

The Cappellan Confederation saw the return of the Sarna system by 3067[16][17] and would retain control through 3130.[18]
