Regulan Bombardment[edit]

After The Master retreated from Gibson in the wake of a Regulan assault on Gibson, a Regulan task force tracked him to Paradise. On 26 February 3080, the Regulans attempted to remove Blakist cells from Paradise by bombarding the planet from orbit, while also using fighters and cargo DropShips to deploy nuclear devices across the planet surface. The nuclear devices used were not only strategic in size, but were also all cobalt-laced.[15]

The attack on Paradise was witnessed by the captain and crew of the Leper Colony, a Mule-class civilian DropShip associated with the JumpShip Centralla's Toy, both of which were present in the Paradise system at the time of the attack. As the Leper Colony was already near the source of the attacks, Captain Burton Lindley and his ship were hired by the planetary government to investigate the emergence pulse of an arriving JumpShip or WarShip that had been detected at the L1 pirate point between the world of Paradise and its major moon, Bliss.[14]

The Leper Colony and its crew observed what appeared to be a textbook example of an attack in the style of a First Succession War attack to render a planet uninhabitable. The emergence signal at the pirate point was from a Star Lord-class JumpShip, which had arrived in-system transporting what appeared to be two Mammoth-class DropShips and a military DropShip of some kind - possibly a Leopard CV and escorted by a number of aerospace fighters. Although fighters from the attacking ships attempted to intercept the Leper Colony, they were unable to close to engage before the Leper Colony was able to rendezvous with the Centralla's Toy. The Leper Colony observed the two Mammoth DropShips throwing out quantities of what initially appeared to be chaff of some kind, but which was later observed to be clusters of thermonuclear weapons; the two DropShips apparently launched approximately 15 nuclear weapons each per minute for some two hours. Forces on Paradise—described as using a significant number of cutting-edge aerospace fighters and DropShips—were able to intercept several dozen nuclear missiles en route to the planet, but the dozens intercepted were only a small part of the thousands of missiles observed to have been launched.[14]

The travel vectors and speeds taken by the missiles which had been launched appeared initially to be random but were later shown to have been deliberately chosen to enable every major city from pole to pole on Paradise to be hit within a five-minute period; thousands of detonations were observed on the planetary surface during this period, and the blast spectrum exhibited by the exploding missiles indicated that they had been laced or jacketed with cobalt. Each missile was estimated to be a multiple-megaton weapon. The Star Lord JumpShip was then observed jumping out of the system before DropShips from the planet could engage it, indicating that the Star Lord possessed a Lithium-Fusion Battery. Burton Lindley later testified on Tamarind as to what he and his crew had observed during the attack on Paradise.[14]

Companies and Industries[edit]


^ Jihad: Final Reckoning references that Paradise has one moon named Bliss with context suggesting there may be others. However, the later produced Objectives: Free Worlds League states that Paradise has no moons. As there are no other refences currently supporting either stance and the two products referenced came out just months apart, this article is written to show Paradise having at least one moon until further information is presented.
