From Gineipaedia, the Legend of Galactic Heroes wiki
There is some interesting background information in some of the untranslated and unanimated Gaiden side stories, but which is available online in Chinese. For example, it looks like Kornelias I personally led a punitive military expedition against the Alliance and smashed the Alliance defensive forces, which had grown complacent and arrogant after the Battle of Dagon some 28 years earlier, and very nearly came close to conquering the Alliance before being forced to turn back to crush a palace coup on Odin. Interestingly it seems he also had major rank inflation in the Imperial forces with 58 Fleet Admirals under his command on the expedition, with 20 lost in battle, and another 15 lost from Alliance pursuit and counterattack in the withdrawal back to the Empire.
Only problem is not quite sure how to cite these. Iracundus 15:36, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
- From what I remember from the site, Kornelias did push into Alliance territory, and did get through the Alliance's defensive perimeter, but he was then met with a counterattack at the Tiamat Starzone in 669 UC, thus critically stalling the invasion. It was a tactical defeat, giving the FPA time to regroup, but he might have tried to push through anew if it hadn't been for the aforementionned Palace Coup. By the time he settled that crisis, the Alliance had redeployed their forces and would no longer be surprised. FPA Forever.
- What site is that? I'm working off of http://www.eywedu.com/tianzhongfangshu/01/index.htm which has all the LOGH written material in Chinese and the Japanese LOGH encyclopedia (which is distinct and came out before the Databook). Iracundus 00:25, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
- Where's the part about Kornelias located on that site? And what translator do you use for it? FPA Forever.
- http://www.eywedu.com/tianzhongfangshu/01/mydoc103.htm 4th section down. I'm just reading it, not using any translator. Iracundus 21:22, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
