Apocryphal Content Starts

The information after this notice comes from apocryphal sources; the canonicity of such information is uncertain.
Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

The star map in the apocryphal BattleTech (Video Game), set in 3025, states that there is nothing of note on the primary world of McEvans' Sacrifice except for the remains of a crashed colony DropShip. The population of the system was said to be less than 100,000, and that pirates were active in the vicinity. It also notes that there is no record of McEvans' identity or what their sacrifice entailed.[7]

Planetary History[edit]

McEvans' Sacrifice draws its name from the heroic efforts of one Angus McEvans, who single-handedly fought off a company of raiders in his Banshee_(BattleMech), killing the pirate leader by crushing his 'Mech's head. McEvans was grappling with another pirate when his ammunition exploded, killing both him and the pirate, which broke the morale of the rest and sent them fleeing off-world.[1]
