Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

At some point prior to 2231 Smolensk was the site of the infamous "Smolensk Incident" in which a crowd of protestors were fired on by Colonial Marines.[42] The protests came during a drought,[42] and the order to fire on the protestors was presumably issued by Rear-Admiral Emil Varnay, the Military Commander on Smolensk at the time. However, the exact detail of what happened is unclear; as Military Commander, Varney would have been subject to the orders of Alliance Colonial Office Representative Heinicke, but Heinicke committed suicide on Smolensk. Varney was rendered a controversial figure, dubbed the "Sadist of Smolensk" by some, and painted as some kind of monster or beast, but may in fact simply have been a rigid disciplinarian unwilling or unable to see beyond the need to obey orders. Whatever the truth, Varney was redeployed to serve as Governor-General of New Avalon as a last chance posting, and remains a controversial historical figure today.[1]
