Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Loparri was a core world within the Outworlds Alliance when Operation UNION HOLD began in 2581. After the major Periphery states rejected the Pollux Proclamation in 2575, the Star League began planning for the forced incorporation of all of the Periphery nations into the Star League. Operation UNION HOLD was the name given to the invasion of the Outworlds Alliance, which saw two corps of Star League Defense Force troops and a mixed brigade of DCMS forces begin systematically occupying Alliance worlds. Loparri escaped the attentions of the Star League and Combine forces - collectively referred to as the Outworlds Alliance Task Force - until mid-2583. Having invaded Cerberus at the head of the 4th Division and 5th Division in March, General Amos Forlough left five brigades to continue attempts to crush all of the resistance on Cerberus and took the 10th Brigade out on raids against other Alliance Worlds, beginning with Quatre Belle and Mitchella in June, followed by Loparri in August.[1][2]

When Forlough and the 10th Brigade targeted Loparri, it wasn't to occupy the world; instead, the Star League Defense Force troops were on a seek-and-destroy campaign to weaken the Outworlds Alliance by destroying the industry and population centers of worlds not yet targeted for annexation. Destroying any militia forces encountered was a secondary objective, compared to that of setting the torch to cities and factories.[2] Loparri was the third target for the 10th Brigade, who inflicted as much damage as possible in what would be their last major combat action in the Outworlds Alliance.[1][3] By the end of 2583, hundreds of cities and towns across the Outworlds Alliance had been destroyed, and such was the level of destruction caused and the number of civilian casualties inflicted that by June 2583 both the commander of the Star League task force, General Amos Forlough, and his troops were being called "The Baby Killers" by the press in both the Outworlds Alliance and the Federated Suns.[2]
