History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

As news of Dulinor’s ascendance to the Iridium Throne reached Verge sector, most of the population was enthusiastic regarding the changes promised by Dulinor. However, after five years of unremitting warfare many of the worlds in the Verge had grown disenchanted with the never-ending demands for more ships, more troops, and more taxes levied against them by Dulinor's Federation of Ilelish.

  • By late 1121, many of the senior nobility of the Verge had decided that Dulinor’s promises of a new and better Imperium would never happen. Even as the Federation promised that victory was at hand, the conscription quotas and "mutual defense tariff’s" levied against the Verge increased. The Verge, never one of the Imperiums most populous or wealthy sectors, finally reached it’s breaking point. The nobility, secretly meeting, agreed that it was time to break with Dulinor and the Federation and to form their own polity. Hearkening back to the time before the Imperium, during the long night, it was time for the Verge Combine to be reborn.
  • Protests on several Verge worlds were put down by Federation forces, sometimes violently. On 172-1122 Analea Mekatan, senior chamberlain of Turin announced the succession of the Verge and the formation of the Verge Combine. The combine was born with a shattered economy, a drained military, and the hope for a brighter future. That future began when two Federation fleets, the 42nd and 1300th reserve, defected. Upon receiving word of the Combine’s succession, Dulinor is reported to have become enraged. He ordered the Federation navy to "teach them the cost of betrayal." The commander of the Federation Naval Base at Estelle immediately struck at the high population world of Taiwan.
  • Taiwan is one of nineteen high population worlds in the Verge Sector, three of which are located in the great rift. Taiwan is located fourteen parsecs spinward/rimward of Dlan, capital of the Federation, and is connected by a jump-1 route eighteen parsecs long. Most of the worlds on this main have class A or B starports in Ilelish sector, with only one class E port. But after crossing the boundary into Verge, many starports are class E and Taiwan itself has only a class D port. The commander of the naval base at Estelle (Verge 3229) sent every ship he had, none larger than a cruiser. Against Taiwan, with a TL of Eleven, and no naval forces worth mentioning, an easy victory was expected.
  • On 192-1122, battle was joined. After six days of bitter fighting Federation forces limped home. While no Federation ships were lost, several Heavy Cruiser’s were seriously damaged. The Federation navy failed to wrest control of the system’s main gas giant from Combine forces, and the invasion of Taiwan, a moon of that gas giant, failed due to the Federations inability to overcome stiff resistance. Remotely operated suicide craft struck at Federation naval forces, damaging the command cruiser and causing the Federation naval commander to flee. Abandoned on the surface of Taiwan were at least three divisions of Federation troops. The Combine was ecstatic over their victory. The Federation was shocked.
  • Dulinor ordered his forces to abstain from military action against the Verge. The thought of fighting a three-sided war against Lucan, Gushemege, and now the Combine was too much. Instead, he chose to interdict trade, and bring sanctions against the Verge, hoping to further strangle their already weak economy, and to bring them back into the fold without resorting to military means. Besides, with their backs to the void, and no real help available to them, the combine was not a great threat to his plans. Of course, if pirates and privateers choose to strike at the vulnerable worlds of the Combine, well that’s just the price you’d pay for freedom.
  • A period of tit for tat raiding ensued. Forces from both sides crossed the borders seeking targets of opportunity. There were commerce raids and surgical strikes against command and communication nexuses. Havoc ensued for the next eight months. While no major naval engagements occurred, and no worlds were conquered, the cost in human lives and property lost was great. This, combined with the cost to the Federation from Lucan’s Black War, strikes helped force a resolution. A cease-fire was announced on 062-1123.
  • By 1125 a peace had settled over the region. So much so that Dulinor’s daughter Isis visited Tripolis. By late 1127 Federation naval forces were using the instrumented test ranges in the trailing portion of the Verge as they worked up for Dulinor’s final push against Lucan’s Imperium.
  • Virus reached Verge sector some time around mid-1130. No one knows exactly when. By 312-1130 it had reached Sestaso in the rift. The collapse came slowly in the Verge. Most commerce had slowed down well before Virus was released. Many worlds, already suffering from the effects of ten years of deprivation, had simply died. The doom trade would have thrived, had enough ships remained for there to be trade. In the Verge, Virus was an afterthought.
