In January 2408, Archon Alister Marsden of the Lyran Commonwealth, was killed while leading a tank regiment
against a heavily fortified Kuritan position on the arid world of Menkent. On his death, his wife, Katherine Steiner
became the 3rd Archon of the Commonwealth, and also began the Steiner dynasty.
 After the Outer Reaches Rebellion and the collapse of Terran authority among the far-flung colony
worlds, dozens of planets suddenly found themselves forced to eke out a living on their own, bereft of support for
their fledgling industries and booming populations. Milton, by all accounts a paradise at the time, was one such
world. Its resources, barely tapped despite a growing number of settlers and a scattering of cities on all four of its
interior landmasses, Etienne, Olquia, and Phronx in the north, and Selajia in the south, supported few major
industries and only a limited trade other than with Terra itself. As a result, the Milton economy was a shambles
when the ascendant Terran Hegemony appeared on the scene several years later, and the planet's meager
defense force easily broke before the might of Admiral McKenna's forces. Under the Hegemony banner, Milton
once more became a prosperous world, exporting industrial metals and radioactive ores along with a host of
military and commercial components for use in spacecraft construction and fusion plant design. Most of these
industries, though minor, were savaged by the troops of Amaris the Usurper, and the few that survived when
Milton later became a Lyran holding were eventually lost in the Succession Wars that followed. Even today, large
swaths of the interior reaches of Phronx and Selajia are plague zones, a result of the excessive chemical and
biological warfare dealt out by both Marik and Steiner troops in the early Succession Wars.
Ironically, the lingering effects of this damage and the constant threat of attack from hostile neighbors spared
Milton the horrors of the FedCom Civil War and the Word of Blake Jihad. Largely overlooked in both conflicts,
save for an incidental orbital bombardment by departing Blakist troops in the waning days of the war, Milton's
economic and industrial recovery was nearly complete before its admittance into The Republic. Thanks to Devlin
Stone's relocation directives and material redemption programs, Milton has experienced a complete revitalization,
and is today a major exporter of industrial alloys, radioactive ores, and spacecraft components used across The
Republic. The capital city, Paradise Foundation, is located on the Etienne continent, along with the planet's
primary spaceport and the headquarters of Milton StarWorks, Limited, Milton's largest spacecraft component
Milton was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic. Milton became part of
Prefecture VIII 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.
 Milton was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Milton joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
