The colonisation shipyards in the Belt survived the War and were maintained by treaty as common property of all the peoples of Humanity.

Hundred Hours War: Imperial attack on Mayflower II; the TDF torchship Belisarius was destroyed. Its captain, Aliana Odoyevskaya, was killed, but many of the crew survived in escape capsules.
Colonyships were sent out to Zeta Tucanae, DM+19 279, Beta Comae Berenices and Beta Canum Venaticorum.
