However, during the turbulent period of the Reverse, a terrible civil war erupted on the planet, shortly after April 30th, 1154 CE (reference stardate −9/5404.30). The massacre there killed over 40 million people in total, including 23.1 million Orions. The Trunes were wiped out and only a small number of Orions survived. Since the weapons used during the war were primitive slug-throwers, and not overly destructive, the planet was left with mostly intact ruins. These gave later Orions, Human settlers and other visitors a telling insight into the planet's history, though they had been plundered several times since (FASA RPG module: The Orions: Book of Common Knowledge).
