From BattleTech (Video Game):

Omen is the lush fertile Terran world belonging to the Appian system. Every attempt to colonize this world has failed, dotting the planet with ruins. The only inhabitants in 3015 were researchers in a small station, trying to pierce the planet's secrets.

Apocryphal Content Ends

Appian was colonized by the Fronc Reaches as part of a colonization program that began in 3099, following a boom in the regional economy as a result of domestic and foreign policy changes by President Elaine Hadley creating rapid growth in the domestic military industrial sectors of the economy. By 3120, Appian and two nearby worlds colonized as part of the same program, Mandalas and Tincalunas, had reached a point where they were self-sustaining agriculturally, and by 3135 each was contributing to the overall gross domestic product of the Reaches through agricultural surpluses, mining and trade. The settlers on Appian originated from a mix of independent and Capellan Confederation worlds.[3]
