In 2414, The Draconis Combine captured the world of St. John during Archon Katherine Steiner's wedding celebration to the Duke of Fatima, Deven Reynolds. The high importance of St. John to the Commonwealth forced the LCAF to undertake a major counterattack, led by Duke Reynolds. When the offensive that would become known as The St. Johns Assault failed miserably, lower-ranking government officials started investigations into leadership competency levels.
