[edit] Planet History

Settlers from Terra established a colony on Tikonov in 2177. Mainly of Asian descent, they named the planet in honor of Oleg Tikonov, the assassinated Soviet Premier.[17] By 2220 Tikonov was already acknowledged as being a political leader in the region, and when the fourth Grand Alliance Survey of Populated Worlds was conducted in 2235 it was noted that Tikonov didn't consider itself to be even nominally under the authority of the Terran Alliance.[17]

Tikonov quickly became the seat of the Tikonov Grand Union mainly because of its central location in the surrounding systems.

During the time of the Star League Tikonov was a joint holding of the Capellan Confederation and the Terran Hegemony.[51]

[edit] The Jihad

Following the attack on Wolf's Dragoons and their facilities on Outreach in October 3067, General Maeve Wolf ordered Gamma Regiment to exercise the escape clause in their contract and leave Tikonov in November.[15] Two years later, the Word of Blake launched an offensive against Tikonov through September 3069 in an attempt to conquer the planet; the attackers met fierce resistance from the defending forces, who went so far as to destroy the local HPG facilities during their defense of the planet.[52]

In October 3074 rebels within the Blakist Protectorate hired mercenary units on generous terms to strike at an Earthwerks Incorporated facility on Tikonov. The combined mercenary and rebel force successfully seized the facility, which was defended by security forces from the Tikonov Protectorate Militia, at which point at least some of the mercenaries were able to depart with their acquired salvage while the rebels ransacked the facility. Additional Blakist forces intent on recapturing the facility arrived soon after the departure of the mercenaries only to be hit with nuclear weapons by the rebels - weapons which may also have engulfed the facility.[53]

On the 20th of July 3075 the hold the Word of Blake had established over Tikonov was broken by an insurrection amongst the planet's population. Despite having their control over the planet shattered, the retreating Blakist forces took the opportunity to level more than half of the planet's factory complexes.[54][55]

Following Operation SCOUR and the resulting liberation of Terra, public support for the Capellan Confderation on Tikinov was greatly diminished when pro-Capellan agents detonated a series of thirteen car bombs at a pro-Devlin Stone rally being held in Tikograd on the 22nd of September 3079. The target for the attack may have been Melissa Allard-Liao, daughter of Kai Allard-Liao and a public supporter of Stone, but nearly 200 people at the rally were killed. Melissa Allard-Liao escaped the blast unharmed, as did the other most noteworthy speaker at the event, the actress Dasha Trubetskaya. Around six thousand people were attending the rally in the Vyacheslav Kozar Square, of whom 139 were killed immediately in the blast. Melissa Allard-Liao later reacted angrily to attempts by the press to politicise the bombing, and condemned those who attacked the rally and pledged to work hand in hand with the authorities on Tikonov to see the perpetrators caught.[56][57]
