Yed Prior V - more commonly referred to simply as Yed Prior - is the fifth planet in the Yed Prior system.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Yed Prior is home to the famous Mitchellson University of Arts and Crafts.[5] Its other main claim to fame is the political firestorm that erupted in 3025: Duke Keskula, then the world's noble leader, wanted to build a DropPort on land owned by and sacred to the planet's Shinto monastery. Though offers of money, new lands, and political favors didn't sway the monks, the Duke refused to consider alternate sites. President Jensen stepped into the situation on the side of the monks, which led the Duke to order the militia to seize the land forcibly. The President retaliated by ordering the police into the forest to resist the militia's efforts. Things would have rapidly devolved but Leutnant-Colonel Greston Patterson decided that the Duke's orders violated Commonwealth law and confined his troops to their bases. It wasn't until the Steiner government sent in a negotiation team that things were resolved peacefully.[1]
