Lackhove was one of seven worlds settled by colonists from the Rim Worlds Republic between 2334 and 2338 as an attempt by Maxwell Rowe to create a buffer zone between the Republic, the Draconis Combine and the Tamar Pact.
By the end of the Age of War Lackhove was a member of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic. Civil war erupted in the Rim Worlds Republic in 2575, with the factions polarised around those loyal to First Consul Gregory Amaris and those loyal to the Rift Republican Army and the Rim Provisional Government.
The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and in 2579 assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. The first wave of attacks focused on securing significant worlds near Apollo, until a destructive raid on Alarion by the 4th Amaris Fusiliers in retaliation prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and the capture of key worlds.
In late 2584 the SLDF changed tactics again; a number of major RWA units had been destroyed or captured, and the focus for the campaign shifted to capturing worlds of strategic importance, but the campaign was slowed by the greatly increased resistance offered by the RWA and local civilian populations, prompted by atrocities performed by the Draconis Auxiliary Corps when they captured Nightwish in mid-2584.
General Nathan Isaacson assigned a division from IV Corps, the Eleventh Royal Division, to the conquest of Lackhove in 2593. The Star League forces successfully took control of Lackhove, defeating the local militia forces, and remained in place as the local garrison until the Eleventh was redeployed for the invasion of Anywhere in 2594.
Clan Jade Falcon conquered Lackhove during the opening stages of Operation Revival, the Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere. Lackhove was then invaded for a second time in mid-3071, when forces from Clan Ice Hellion captured the world from the Falcons as part of an invasion of the Jade Falcon Occupation Zone. The Ice Hellions were only able to hold Lackhove until October, however, when the world was recaptured by the Jade Falcons.
