Planetary HistoryEdit

Star League EraEdit

Holt was one of some fifty-one heavily contested worlds to have been placed under Terran Hegemony authority as a jointly-administered world during the Age of War or Star League era. During the First Succession War Holt once more became a flashpoint between the Free Worlds League and Capellan Confederation.[9]

Third Succession WarEdit

In 3018 Holt was raided by the mercenary unit Snord's Irregulars. The Irregulars were conducting Operation Junk Yard Dog, a campaign of deep raids against the Free Worlds League, with the intention of recovering items from the Irregulars' museum on Clinton that had been captured by League forces in late 3017. Having recently raided the world of Nestor, the Irregulars had jumped to Holt while the Free Worlds League Military attempted to enforce blockades on the Irregulars' most likely path back to the Lyran Commonwealth. The Irregulars had information indicating that items from their collection - including recordings collected by Rhonda Snord of the twentieth century musician Elvis Presley - were being held on Holt. Making planetfall in mid-April, the Irregulars launched an attack on a BattleMech repair depot located close to the Great Swamp in the Feathered Plains region, clashing with Rainbow Company of the Twenty-seventh Marik Militia.[10]

Following the battle at the 'Mech repair facility the Irregulars launched an assault on the estate of the planetary governor, Jason Marik-Torrenson, hoping to capture Marik-Torrenson - third cousin to Captain-General Janos Marik and use him as leverage to get through the blockade. Tangling again with the Twenty-seventh Marik Militia, the Irregulars successfully captured Marik-Torrenson, with Cranston Snord defeating Marik-Torrenson's Marauder in single combat.[10]
