New Hope terraformed 2358
The Commons terraformed 2358
Captain Wessel’s Date-of-Birth: June 25, 2488 on The Commons in the Georgia System 2488
The Miranda Initiative —There is a call for settlers on Miranda, a world at the far edge of the system. Thirty million people settle there, and the Alliance mixes a chemical called the Pax into the air processors in an effort to curb aggression. The chemical is too effective, with the majority of the population becoming so passive that they eventually die. However, a tenth of one percent of the population have the opposite reaction, becoming uncontrollably violent (the reavers). 2506
Unification War: Operation Diadem (The Bombing of Shadow) —The aggressive bombing of Shadow during the war was meant to teach the Browncoats a lesson about the might of the Alliance. Instead, the bombing only hardened the resolve of those who fought and increased the Browncoats’ hatred of their enemy. Those few from Shadow who survived this difficult time lost loved ones, their lives forever changed. By 2511 – after only 106 years of habitability – Shadow became a ghost planet. No one lived there; no one could. 2506
Unification War: Battle of Serenity Valley —The Battle of Serenity Valley is fought on Hera. It is among the most devastating and decisive battles of the war, as the valley is considered a key position by both sides, and it is bitterly fought over. The Alliance says they are going to waltz through the valley, but the Independent Faction, with sixteen brigades and twenty air-tank squads, do not make victory easy for them, holding the valley against Alliance forces for almost two months. Sergeant Malcolm Reynolds is stationed on Hera and in command of thirty-odd grunts, including Zoe Alleyne. Five days into the battle, there are so many officers dead that he commands two thousand, and he keeps all of them together, fighting, and sane. The Browncoats are forced to pile up the bodies of fellow soldiers and friends to build a wall because they have no cover. Nearly half a million people lie dead on the field at the end of the battle, about a third of them on the side of the Alliance; Malcolm Reynolds himself has maybe four hundred grunts still intact. Although the fighting is over, both sides leave their survivors there wounded and sick and “near to mad as can still walk and talk” while delegates off-planet negotiate the peace, and those soldiers kept dying. 2511, May-June
End of the Unification War: Unification Day —May 25th, 2511. After a week of negotiations, a peace agreement is reached, with the Independents surrendering to Alliance forces. All of the settled worlds are united as a result of the peace agreement and the Anglo-Sino Alliance, which had originally formed on Earth-That-Was, comes to be formally known as the Union of Allied Planets. It is considered by some to be the dawn of a new galaxy. 2511
