TimelineEdit

15 DEC 3301

  • The Drug Empire of Xelabara has "Onionhead Alpha Strain" for sale.

25 NOV 3301

  • The Drug Empire of Xelabara's appeal for Onion Head was successful.

This just goes to show that the demand for onionhead is a strong as ever, despite the Federation's attempts to quash it. I want to say a big thank you to all the traders who made the journey to Xelabara, and to all the pilots who helped clear the pirates from our spaceways. You guys rock!

— Rooney 'Rush' Romero, Drug Empire of Xelabara spokesman[2]

19 NOV 3301

24 MAY 3301

  • The original strain of Onion Head returned to sale in Kappa Fornacis.[6]

04 FEB 3301

  • The Federation withdrew all forces from Kappa Fornacis, after an aid operation. Georgio Algeria was defiant, saying their aid efforts were "just window dressing. They bully us, they burn us, now they try to buy us. Well we ain’t scared and we ain’t for sale. We say what happens on Panem, and we say Onionhead will live on!"[7]

24 JAN 3301

  • The farmers of Kappa Fornacis helped farmers in Tanmark develop Lucan Onion Head, a genetically altered strain that could grow in harsher environments, in an attempt to fill the demand after the near-destruction of the original strain.[8]

11 JAN 3301

  • To quell calls for her resignation over the Onion Head crisis, Halsey gave a carefully worded speech designed to soften the rift between her and Admiral Vincent of the Federal Navy, a friend of Shadow President Hudson.[9]

10 JAN 3301

  • Bombing of Panem in the Kappa Fornacis system resumed. Unlike the firebombs of the first Fedaral Navy attack, which caused controversial collateral damage, this attack utilised genetically engineered biocides targeted specifically to destroy the Onion Head crop.[10]

06 JAN 3301

  • Sales and prices of Onion Head reached an all time high. Congressmen were angry at the publicity the drug had received from Halsey's announcements. 'Oniongate' protests continued.[11]
