La Fere Wreck
|La Fere Wreck|
|Ribeauville class Station|
La Fere was built in 364 A.G.S., only ten years after the nearby Saint-Quentin Space Colony was constructed. Ironically, the convicts who were employed to assist the prison's construction, were housed in Saint-Quentin until La Fere was completed. While prisoners did not form the majority of the construction workers, several acts of sabotage were attempted with only one such plot being enacted. An explosive device detonated behind a bulkhead which caused an entire module to be jettisoned from the Station, eventally burning up within the atmosphere of Planet Laon. The only one casualty: the convict who was foolish enough to detonate the bomb while aboard the doomed module. Though the act was moderately successful, it did serve to highlight the dangers of a criminal workforce and the use prisoners was immediately ceased.
In 740 AGS Council forces launched a daring raid against the Facility, successfully freeing the numerous Supporters and Criminals incarcerated within. The battles and subsequent riot by the newly liberated Prisoners has left La Fere as a lifless charred Monument, dedicated to Royalist cruelty. While the Council's ranks and morale may have been bolstered by the storming of La Fere, the Group's actions have also granted the freedom of thousands of hardened Criminals who are now free to descend upon the unsuspecting citizens of Gallia once more.
