In the remote regions of Annapolis, the primitive indigenous people practice a DropShip cult (a faith based on a
technological artifact, including a mythology of visitors from the sky). Apparently, Annapolis was one of the
stopping points of the Exodus fleet led by Aleksandr Kerensky as he departed the Inner Sphere. Eight hundred
kilometers from the home of the cult stands a six meter tall granite statue of Kerensky, a perfect likeness. There is
no naturally occurring granite on Annapolis. The statue confirms that the DropShip cult actually idolizes the
departing SLDF.

[2812] It was never clear to anyone, why General Aleksandr Kerensky took the astronomical course he did.
After leaving New Earth for the Dieron system, it was assumed he was on his way to confer with the Kurita
authorities. After he left Dieron without stopping planetside, everyone assumed that speculation about
conferences with Minoru Kurita must be correct, as the General's next stop was Styx. This speculation ended
when he jumped from Styx to Deneb Algedi, rather than Telos, the usual course towards Luthien.

After that, observers lost track of the Kerensky as the Exodus fleet headed through Kuritan space, prior to
arriving at New Samarkand. Though it was never understood why he gathered his troops on New Samarkand
(rather than Terra, where the final battle was fought), Kerensky's final action became legend - the jump from
New Samarkand into the Periphery.

There is an odd sidelight to the whole Exodus though. In the backwaters of Annapolis, there is a Dropship cult,
one of those religions set up by primitive tribes that worship some advanced technological development from a
more sophisticated culture. Anthropologists have found the tenets of this religion follow the usual course (the
miraculous visitors from the sky, their magical powers, the promise, either explicit or inferred, to return), but the
anthropologists discovered something else as well.

More than eight hundred kilometers from the nearest permanent structure, the natives of the Annapolis tribe have
constructed a six-meter high statue of Kerensky. It is a perfect likeness carved in solid granite, a type of stone
that does not appear in nature on Annapolis.

[3132] Annapolis was originally part of the Draconis Combine.  After the creation of The Republic it remained
so. Annapolis never became part of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Annapolis witnessed the release of many planets from the control of The Republic.

[3135] Annapolis remains part of the Draconis Combine, House Kurita.
