Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Situated deep within the Draconis Combine, Sheliak was a minor planet with few resources. In fact, it was of such little military value that even during the Clan Invasion, when Sheliak suddenly found itself near the front lines, the DCMS did not assign any troops to defend it. Thus in December 3051, when Clan Ghost Bear invasion forces appeared over Sheliak, the planetary government was in a state of panic and agreed to a desperate plan proposed by football commissioner Jimmy "Straight Jim" Lorne.

Confident that the Clans knew nothing of the game of football, a challenge was issued by Sheliak's government. If the Ghost Bears won a game against the Sheliak Professional Football League, they would claim the planet; if they lost, then Sheliak would remain free. Unfortunately for both Sheliak's population and their football players, the Bears not only knew the rules of the game, but deployed a team of eight-foot-tall Elementals from the 68th Striker Cluster's 78th Elemental Support Binary. During the match at Kurita Stadium, the Sheliak All-Star team was utterly smashed and lost the game, 84 to 3. During the postgame show the planetary government formally ceded control of Sheliak to the Ghost Bear Clan.[33]
