Fourth Succession WarEdit

Apocryphal Content Starts

Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

Just after the end of the Fourth Succession War, when the ravaged Capellan Confederation was assaulted by the combined forces of the Duchy of Andurien and the Magistracy of Canopus and thus had its entire depleted military tied up (i.e. at some point between ca. 3030 and 3032), No Return declared its independence under elected president Nick Vorhees. Lacking the military resources for a full counterinsurgency operation, Romano Liao instead sent a mercenary unit on Operation Zitadelle to abduct Vorhees so that he could be "turned" by the Maskirovka to quell the uprising.[32] This was apparently successful in returning the world to the Capellan fold in short order.

The JihadEdit

No Return was seized by Capellan March troops on the 3rd of October 3068 as a part of Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE, the campaign being waged against the Capellan Confederation by Duke George Hasek. Even as No Return was seized the Capellan March was rushing to try and resupply the March forces poised to strike at Sian.[33]
