The Insurrection of Meridian was an armed conflict that took place in the late 25th century on the colony of Meridian between the Sundered Legion and forces loyal to the UEG.

Background[edit | edit source]

Relations between Earth and the outer colonies deteriorated in the late 25th century. The frontier nature of the colonies brought about a dislike of CAA and UEG-alligned colonial governments. Due to limits in its capabilities, the United Nations Space Command left the policing of these colonies to UEG-sponsored local militias. However, the supply of weapons to these militias allowed for radical secessionists to arm themselves, leading to a series of rebellions across the outer colonies.

On Meridian, a wave of this anti-government sentiment already hit the moon with the Free Patriot Movement in 2467.[1]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The insurrection began on Meridian in 2495 with the formation of the Sundered Legion,[1] a militant group opposed to UEG influence in their colony.

By 2500, the UNSC entered the conflict and besieged Athea, likely a place central to the Sundered Legion. At the end of the siege the Sundered Legion's leaders were arrested and put on trial in UEG-friendly courts. Rank-and-file members of the group were offered amnesty as a way of preventing further conflict.[2]

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

The UNSC maintained a strong presense on Meridian following the Sundered Legion's defeat. Though the organised rebellion was crushed, however, insurrectionist activity was known to continue in a weaker state until the start of the Human-Covenant War.
