Crisis of 2420

During a Lyran Commonwealth assault, Captain-General Peter Marik, a war hero, stepped down, refusing to serve as Captain-General while the War Powers Act was enforced by the Parliament Committee. Parliament looked to Joseph Stewart, a popular General who served under Peter during Capellan Offensive of 2417. While a brilliant tactician on the ground, he failed miserably on the interstellar terrain, where the focus was needed across several planets. Amity and Danais easily fell to the Lyrans. One counterattack committed by the Free Worlds League was easily routed before the main Marik attack force could fully commit to assaulting Concord. General Stewart was removed for failure to repel the Steiner troops from Amity and Danais. [1]
