Planetary History[edit]

Second Exodus[edit]

The colonies of York and Lancaster were founded by Scots-Irish refugees fleeing from the war between the Stewart Confederation and the Free Worlds League in 2305. Unfortunately for the colonists, they were discovered by the Protectorate of Donegal in 2346, who gave the colonists a choice between joining the protectorate or being invaded; the colonists instead chose to board their old ships and run, relocating to the world of Loxley.[3]

FedCom Civil War[edit]

During the FedCom Civil War, York was the site of a Loyalist trap to capture and destroyed Prince Victor Steiner-Davion and his forces. They had been making their way through Lyran Alliance during the third wave when they arrived on York in 3064. Loyalist General Maria Esteban, placed most of her Battle Group in concealed bunkers, while she using the group's two militia forces as bait. Prince Victor dispatched his 6th Crucis Lancers to engage the Alarion and Carlisle APM, while having Prince's Men and ad hoc Outland Legion secure Headquarter site and supplies.

However, the 11th Arcturan Guards RCT conducted orbital drop behind pursuing 6th Crucis Lancers, to cut them off. The Prince Victor seeing no way to prevail in this trap, order to withdraw and meet up 500 kilometer from their original drop point, while being pursued by Katrina Steiner-Davion's loyalists forces. Prince Victor brought time for his forces, to attempt make it to their Landing Zones, by dueling 11th Arcturans' commander, Colonel Linda McDonald.

Ultimately, York was loss for Prince Victor's campaign against his sister's ternary, nearly himself in process. General Maria Esteban had dispatched two of her Fox Class WarShips, to run down Prince Victor's Task Force's DropShips fleeing the planet. However, most of Victor's task force managed to escape, but they left 2,000 allied forces as prisoners to the Loyalist of York.[39]
