Algot V - more commonly referred to simply as Algot - is the fifth planet in the Algot system and has one moon named "Victoria's Jewel".
Algot was one of the first worlds to be settled by colonists from Tikonov, and for a brief period it was a major industrial center second only to Tikonov itself. By the beginning of the twenty-ninth century Algot was one of the most populous worlds in the region, and specialized in sciences related to computers and electronics. Then, in 2822, Algot was struck by a plague which disappeared a year later, as mysteriously as it had arrived. This gained Algot a reputation for being bad for individual health - something that led to a decline in immigration and a significant increase in emigration.
Ironically, for a planet with a reputation for poor health, natives of Algot had the third-highest life expectancy in the Federated Suns by 3025 and the local population had enjoyed exceptionally good health for two centuries. This fact was kept a careful secret by the local population, to avoid their world being inundated with waves of immigrants that would spoil the quality of the their local environment - a feature that made Algot a pleasant world to visit.
During the last two weeks of October 3069 the Word of Blake launched a fresh wave of planetary assaults, further expanding the borders of the Word of Blake Protectorate. The assaults saw a number of new planets incorporated into the Protectorate, often after the threat - or use - of orbital bombardment or biological, chemical or nuclear weapons to destroy local defenses; Algot was one of the worlds brought into the Protectorate in this fashion. Three Level IIIs from the Word of Blake Nineteenth Division descended upon the planet under false flag, with Word aerospace forces firebombed the AFFS compound on the outskirts of the city of Cassol, depriving Algot of the majority of their garrison forces, and followed with a ground assault across the southern deserts of Algot's sole continent flushed out the remainder of the Algot Militia and placed the world under the new Word of Blake Protectorate.
The citizens of Algot chose to oppose the Word's occupation with guerilla actions rather than surrender their home to invaders unconcerned for protecting the ecosystem. The Nineteenth Division responded by poisoning Lake Ochiba, one of the most important freshwater body of the planet. Even though this caused a death toll reaching close to one million, only angered more the inhabitants. The resultant quagmire of sabotage and civil unrest forced Blakist Precentor Martial Cameron St. Jamais to reassign the Nineteenth elsewhere and leave a Word-funded mercenary garrison, Carson's Renegades, Hannigan's Monsters, Khasperov's Knights to deal with insurrection.
On 14 February 3077 Warrior House Imarra met the bulk of the Blakist mercenary garrison in the desert outside Cassol while Ambermarle's Highlanders and Devon's Armored Infantry flanked the mercenaries and overran the former AFFS compound the mercenaries were using as their base of operations. When Operation SCOUR kicked off in 3077, Algot was a target for liberation by the allied coalition, but when a task force of coalition troops led by the Federated Suns arrived in the Algot system on the 24th of February 3077, they discovered that troops from the Capellan Confederation were already fighting against the Blakists on the planet. At the behest of Devlin Stone the allied task force withdrew from the system, leaving the liberation efforts to the Capellans. By the time Group II withdrew from the Algot system, the 1st Davion AeroSpace Wing had already acquitted themselves well against the CCAF forces which had attacked the task force at the jump point. Media sources within the Capellan Confederation reported in February 3077 that Algot had rejoined the Confederation, claiming that the allied coalition forces had arrived post-liberation to attempt to take the planet from the Capellans, but had been driven off in disarray by Confederation naval forces.
