In 1904 PD government of the system joined the Manticoran Alliance. Three battlecruiers from Admiral Tyrel's squadron at Hancock Station was assigned to the system. (HH3)

Shortly before Operation Icarus, it was due to bring its new shipyards online. It was attacked by Vice Admiral Lester Tourville's Task Force 12.2, which destroyed almost all of its orbital industry. (HH8)
