The Epsilon Eridani Incident was the incident that led to the creation of the Eridani Edict.

During a military conflict in the middle of the 2nd Millenium PD, a Solarian League-member world in the Epsilon Eridani System suffered a massive planetary bombardment by enemy forces which resulted in the death of over seven billion people. As a consequence, the Solarian League ruled that any star nation bombarding civilians on planetary surfaces without warning and military reason would face severe punishment through the Solarian League Navy.
