Miranda was formerly occupied by the Bajaarans but now is in the hands of the Cartassian occupational forces from Larissa. During Bajaaran residence the planet was more like a vast religious enclave but with the coming of the Cartassian the planet now resembles a military work camp. When the Cartassians reclaimed Miranda the Bajaarans waited until the last seconds to put up any resistance. The war lasted 6 long years and a million Bajaarans lost their lives. Many escaped to Enceladus orbiting Saturn and during the last 40 years many more have made it off Miranda to the relative safety of Enceladus. The Bajaarans have vowed to return to liberate Miranda but the operation is effectively still a dream.
