Pleione is an inhospitable place. Deserts cover 95% of the planet's landmass, and the terrain is nearly featureless
save for large rock formations that dot the land. Several of these formations were turned into military bases during
the Star League era. The most notable of these is a huge formation called Thunder Rock. Capellan defenders
used this base during the invasion of Pleione in the Forth Succession War.
 Brian's Legion moves opperations to Pleione and begins seeking new recruits.
[Jan. 1, 3075] Pleione has three Protectorate Militia Divisions on the planet.
 Colonized during the early exodus from Terra, Pleione became a stepping-stone to the stars beyond.
Though the planet is an inhospitable desert world, it has an abundant supply of water, which it exports on a
regular basis. The landmass is less then 20 percent of the planet, limiting population growth to the lone continent
of Jezrael. Most of the terrain is nearly featureless, save for large rock formations that dot the land. Pleione can
barely grow agricultural products, so it must import the majority of the agricultural products needed to support the
population. Pleione was once a member of the Tikonov Grand Union before joining the Capellan Confederation.
The original Star League used Pleione as a military supply world and built a massive fort atop the largest rock
formation on Jezrael. This fort was used as a headquarters and regimental supply depot. The Capellans named it
“Thunder Rock.” It was here that Capellan forces fought against Davion mercenaries during the Fourth
Confederate forces were able to regain Pleione once the Sarna March collapsed as the result of the Marik-Liao
invasion of 3057. During the Confederation’s Xin Sheng movement, Pleione, along with Ningpo and Poznan,
reaffirmed its allegiance to the Celestial Throne and House Liao. To ensure the defense of the world, the
Confederation assigned Little Richard’s Panzer Brigade to defend Pleione, as well as to back up Confederation
forces on Ningpo and Poznan. During the FedCom Civil War in October of 3066, the Brigade was sent by the
CCAF to take Genoa and Arboris. It was on Genoa that Little Richard met with disaster at the hands of Twelfth
Vegan Ranger’s Beta Regiment. In a matter of a month, the defenders of Pleione were sent home, their regiment
reduced to a barely operational battalion. The unit was in the middle of recovering when Blakist forces invaded.
Little Richard’s forces fought valiantly but to no avail. They made their last stand at “Thunder Rock,” where they
died to a man. Their deaths prompted the planet to surrender.
 Pleione was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Pleione
became part of Prefecture V under the control 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.
 Pleione was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Pleione became part of the Capellan Confederation, House Liao.
