Planetary History[edit]

Age of War[edit]

The first colony on Lee was founded by settlers from New Macao,[4] and Lee was a member of the Capellan Hegemony during the four decades the Hegemony existed. As a border world within the Capellan Hegemony, Lee was subject to heavy attacks from Kluanian pirates in 2305 and 2306. Hired by the Sarna Supremacy during the Capellan-Supremacy War, the pirates inflicted heavy damage on a number of Capellan border worlds, forcing the Hegemony to constantly redeploy troops to defend its worlds rather than continuing to stage attacks on Sarna.[2]

When the successor to the Hegemony, the Capellan Commonality, signed the Acala Pact with the Federated Suns in 2345,[3] Lee became a part of the Federated Suns.[4] In 2363 the Prime Minister of the Capellan Commonality, Seluk Tucas, recalled his brother from New Avalon - his brother being the Commonality Ambassador. The Ambassador vanished mysteriously on the way back to Capellan space, and Tucas used this as a pretext for a general mobilization amongst the nations he'd made allies within the Capellan Zone. By the end of 2363, the combined strike force included units from the Capellan Commonality, the Tikonov Grand Union and the St. Ives Mercantile League. The strike force represented the best of the armed forces from the various states, including the Capellan Reserve Cavalry, Morcock's Rangers, the Seluk's Principia, the 1st and 3rd Tikonov Lancers, Seneca's Fusiliers and the Prime Minister's household guards.[5]

The strike force landed on Lee only to discover that it had been betrayed; someone, most likely Premiere Alexi Nimzovich of the Sarna Supremacy, had given Reynard Davion of the Federated Suns warning of the impending attack. Davion had moved eight crack regiments to Lee in secret before the strike force landed, and the resulting two-day battle destroyed all bar a handful of units of Capellan infantry and armor.[5] The defeat on Lee resulted in a political crisis that removed Tucas from power, as well as enabling the Federated Suns to invade and capture seven assorted systems from the St. Ives Mercantile Association, and to launch attacks against several of the Tikonov Grand Union worlds - including Tikonov itself.[46]

Succession Wars[edit]

Third Succession War[edit]

Sometime during the Third Succession War between 2864 and 2943 Lee was taken by the Federated Suns, becoming a regional supply hub and major repair center for aerospace fighters and increasingly rare Land-Air 'Mechs.

In 2943 the Confederation learned several Wasp LAMs were being repaired on Lee and launched a deep raid to capture them. The Federated Suns were tipped off by a double agent allowing the LAMs to be repaired in time to meet the invading force. Unable to obtain space superiority, the Confederation DropShips fled the system.[47]

In 2952 Chancellor Ingrid Liao again ordered an attack upon that world, hoping to secure the repair facilities for her realm. A massive force of two hundred CCAF aerospace fighters was dispatched, only to be devastated by the forewarned AFFS defenders. In what was afterwards dubbed the "Great Lee Turkey Shoot", the FedSuns pilots destroyed over forty Capellan craft and heavily damaged the rest, costing the CCAF a large number of veteran fliers.[48][49]

See the Great Lee Turkey Shoot article for more detailed information.


Lee was one of ten worlds assaulted by the CCAF during the third week of March 3069, a wave of attacks that formed a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, the Capellan counteroffensive against the Capellan March in defiance of Duke George Hasek's campaign Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE.[50]

Dark Age[edit]

When the CCAF invaded the Capellan March in 3146 Lee was one of the targeted worlds. Attacked in late April by the Third St. Ives Sentinels, the First Brockton Training Battalion defending Lee managed to kill the Third's CO, prompting the enraged Sentinels to devastate the unit before securing the planet for the Confederation.[44]
