History & Background (Dossier)
It is one of the Entropic Worlds and historically, both the Darrian and Sword Worlds confederations have laid claim to the system. Winston was a thinly colonized Darrian world before being taken by the Sword Worlds during the Fourth Frontier War. The Imperium has generally backed Darrian claims while the Zhodani Consulate has backed the Sword Worlds claim. In 1105 Winston was a Sword Worlds holding.
History-Era: Milieu 1120
Throughout the Fifth Frontier War the Sword Worlds' Joyeuse Fleet patrolled Winston as part of the larger Darrian Campaign. When the Joyeuse Fleet was driven off by Imperial forces, the Darrians seized Winston and the armistice was arranged before the Sword Worlds could retake the system.
Winston is a balkanized world that has lost a great deal of its population and technology in repeated fighting between the Darrians and the Sword Worlds. Some nations on Winston remain sympathetic to the Sword Worlds, but most are loyal to Darrian.
