The Ganymede incident was an event where a human-protomolecule hybrid attacked soldiers from the Martian Congressional Republic and United Nations Marine Corps on Ganymede, killing all personnel except Gunnery Sergeant Roberta Draper.
Course[edit | edit source]
The initial attack and radio blackout was misinterpreted by both the MCR and the UN as an attack from the other side, which led to a battle above and on Ganymede that claimed nearly three thousand military and civilian lives, as well as over five billion MCR scrip of infrastructure damage. Both sides retained a force after the battle.
After the incident, both sides committed relief supplies, food and clothing, to the civilians.
The events preceded and contributed to tensions which subsequently erupted as the Io Campaign.
