Planetary HistoryEdit

Reunification WarEdit

Mitchella was a core world within the Outworlds Alliance when Operation UNION HOLD began in 2581. After the major Periphery states rejected the Pollux Proclamation in 2575, the Star League began planning for the forced incorporation of all of the Periphery nations into the Star League. Operation UNION HOLD was the name given to the invasion of the Outworlds Alliance, which saw two corps of Star League Defense Force troops and a mixed brigade of Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery forces begin systematically occupying Alliance worlds. Mitchella escaped the attentions of the the Star League and Combine forces - collectively referred to as the Outworlds Alliance Task Force - until mid-2583. Having invaded Cerberus at the head of the 4th Division and 5th Division in March, General Amos Forlough left five brigades to continue attempts to crush all of the resistance on Cerberus and took the 10th Brigade out on raids against other Alliance Worlds, beginning with Quatre Belle in June and then Mitchella.[5]

When Forlough and the 10th Brigade targeted Mitchella, it wasn't to occupy the world; instead, the Star League Defense Force forces were on a seek-and-destroy campaign to weaken the Outworlds Alliance by destroying the industry and population centers of worlds not yet targeted for annexation. Destroying any militia forces encountered was a secondary objective, compared to that of setting the torch to cities and factories.[5] Mitchella was the second target for the 10th Brigade, who inflicted as much damage as possible before leaving to refit and rearm on Sevon before raiding other Alliance worlds.[47] By the end of 2583, hundreds of cities and towns across the Outworlds Alliance had been destroyed, and such was the level of destruction caused and the number of civilian casualties inflicted that by June 2583 both the commander of the Star League task force, General Amos Forlough, and his troops were being called "The Baby Killers" by the press in both the Outworlds Alliance and the Federated Suns.[5]


During the Jihad Mitchella's industry wasn't affected by any conflict.[48] During this time, it did become home to a new factory complex and Clan Snow Raven facility, and a DropShip repair and maintenance facility.[1]

Dark AgeEdit

Mitchella's high level of technology made it an ideal candidate to support Interstellar Expeditions' expeditions out into the Deep Periphery. As such it became the base world for the organization's efforts for the Spinward Operations Area. Most of these operations focus on anthropology and archaeology.[49]

Military DeploymentEdit


  • 3rd Battalion (Green/Questionable)
- CO: Chairman Heloise Moran


- At this point in time, the 2nd Alliance Air Wing were deployed across Mitchella, Banori and Sevon. The 2nd Alliance Air Wing was at 75% of full strength.
  • Alliance Borderers (Regular/Regular)[1][51]
- At this point in time, the Alliance Borderers were split across Mitchella and Banori, and were operating at 65% of full strength.
