The Ingress system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as of 3152 was located within the Draconis Combine.[2]

System Description[edit]

Ingress is located near the Fletcher and Ruchbah systems. It consists of nine planets orbiting a G6V class star and lies within 60 lightyears Spinward from Terra.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Ingress system was colonized at some point during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra.[1]

Planetary History[edit]


Ingress was one of the first worlds settled during the Terran Exodus. Its rich soil soon allowed the inhabitants to grow a great deal of food, far more than they needed. These crops remain the foundation of Ingress' economy, but the planet does have some light industry as well, making it totally self-sufficient. As such it was one of the first colony worlds to seek liberation from the Terran Alliance.[1]

Terran Hegemony[edit]

Having assumed control of the newly formed Terran Hegemony from the ashes of the Terran Alliance, Director-General James McKenna began to execute "Campaigns of Persuasion" to integrate worlds that had been independent since the Demarcation Declaration of 2240 into the Hegemony. The first of these campaigns began in March 2316 and finished in 2317, and one of the worlds targeted was Ingress.[49]

During the early twenty-fourth century Ingress was a rich world that combined extensive natural resources with a thriving industrial base; at the time of the invasion by the Hegemony Armed Forces the majority of the major cities on Ingress were dotted around a single large and deep sea named the Ingress Sea. In the view of the HAF, this made the Ingress campaign the perfect opportunity to deploy the very first of a new pattern of regiment — the First CAAN Regiment. As a Combined Armor, Air and Naval Regiment the plan was that the First would deploy onto or around the narrow sea and quickly secure the major cities as part of a HAF task force to secure the world.[3]

The First actually ended up being one of the first HAF regiments to touch down on Ingress, with their DropShips deploying into landing zones around the Ingress Sea that had already been partially secured by Jump Troops deployed ahead of the main landing. The First quickly set up a fighter base in a large, flat valley while a number of DropShips landed directly in shallow waters close to the shore to deploy hovercraft and gunboats directly onto the sea. One of the first targets for the First was to secure key points around the city of Grand Port and hold areas of the waterfront so that follow-up Marine infantry forces could secure the city proper. The First deployed troops rapidly by hovercraft only to discover that the defending Ingress forces were heavily equipped with heat-seeking missiles; while the missiles were primitive by HAF standards, the missiles were simple enough to construct that the natives of Ingress had managed to retool a number of local factories and then churn the missiles out in vast quantities. The population then promptly proceeded to drag the First and the other HAF regiments into a protracted guerrilla war where time and again the high-tech HAF equipment such as the First's hovercraft would be damaged or destroyed by cheap handheld missiles launched by resistance fighters the HAF considered little more than country bumpkins. Despite the conquest of Ingress being described in media across the Hegemony as a peaceful persuasion, the reality of the campaign was that it was a protracted and bitterly fought war.[3]

Amaris Civil War[edit]

Ingress was taken by the Rim Worlds Republic forces during the Amaris Civil War. Ingress was a key world for the Amaris Empire as it was self-sufficient and exported food to other worlds. In May, 2775 Ingress was invaded by the SLDF's LII Corps. They faced a brigade of Republican forces, but the mercenary 'Mech unit that was on world (Jacob's Firebrands) quickly surrendered. Elements of LII Corps spent most of the next year working to close down the small resistance cells that the Republican defenders used.[50]

Succession Wars[edit]

After the fall of the Star League the planet became part of the Capellan Confederation. The Confederation enjoyed the fruits of the world until the Fourth Succession War when Ingress became part of the Tikonov Free Republic and later the Federated Commonwealth.[1]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Following negotiations between Colonel Pavel Ridzik, chief military advisor to Chancellor Maximilian Liao, and AFFS Lieutenant General Ardan Sortek, conducted in February 3029 Ridzik created a new nation, the Tikonov Free Republic. The Republic was created by incorporating those worlds of the Tikonov Commonality that hadn't already been conquered during the first half of the Fourth Succession War. Ridzik returned to Elgin, the new capital of the Tikonov Free Republic, on 3 March 3029 and swiftly began implementing a new government consisting of family members, friends and other appointees loyal to himself, purging dissident elements on the various Republic worlds and taking the opportunity to settle old scores. Ingress was one of the systems incorporated into the Republic.[22]

Post War of 3039[edit]

In January 3049, Tai-sa Gitaki Hurunko would take the Ninth Sun Zhang Academy Cadre on a "training mission" and attack Ingress without orders. There they engaged the Third NAIS Cadet Cadre in a battle the ended in a draw. The Combine forces left the planet under the Federated Commonwealth's control, but both sides suffered similar losses.[51]

Operation GUERRERO[edit]

After Operation GUERRERO created the Chaos March, Ingress was "invited" to join a military alliance by Small World. Unfortunately the Small Worlders hadn't read their history — the Ingressians resisted the invading troops for years until they finally drove the Small Worlders off-world.[1]


This military success ultimately backfired however. The Ingress Militia had lost so many soldiers fighting off the Small World invaders that they couldn't resist the occupying Word of Blake forces.[1] The Word of Blake launched a wave of attacks during the first two weeks of July 3069 that targeted the worlds of Bharat, Deneb Kaitos, Ingress, Kawich and Ruchbah; Ingress was one of the worlds to fall in the face of a conventional assault, and was incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate.[38] The Blakists established huge "reeducation" camps on the world, disrupting Ingress' agriculture production. The resulting food shortages caused a billion people (both on Ingress and on worlds that imported Ingress' food) to starve to death.[1]

Ingress was liberated by forces on the Federated Suns front of Operation SCOUR by December 3077; the forces that landed on Ingress were drawn from Group I, under the command of Major General Walter White-Davion of the Fifth Crucis Lancers. The Fox's Teeth had recently undergone a change in command, with David McKinnon leading following the death of Ross McKinnon early in the year. The resulting campaign was nearly bloodless, with the Fox's Teeth playing a pivotal, although unspecified, role in making it so.[40]

Republic Era[edit]

Ingress became part of the Republic of the Sphere after the Jihad, as part of Prefecture IV. Its economy recovered over the long peace that followed. Its population did not - by 3130, it was still at less than half of its pre-Jihad population.[1] By 30 July 3132, shortly before the Blackout, the planet's academic averages were below 70% of other Prefecture IV worlds; the Ingress Education Network had hopes that Lord Governor Sandoval's proposed Tomorrow Technology Bill would help solve this.[52]
