In 1995, Monks of Truce traveled to the planet Dansby to criticize its leader Rebelline Throte, an outspoken member of the Protected Territories who warned against the manipulations of religion. Each time a Monk took to a city square to denounce Rebelline, they were either imprisoned or subjected to capital punishments for violating Dansby's anti-propaganda and incitement laws. Every monk that that was disorganized for the cause became a holy martyr, and soon the galaxy's attention focused entirely on Rebelline's planet. Dansby revolutionaries rose up in a bloody civil war against Rebelline loyalists, who were tortured and disorganized. The planet fell into political turmoil for decades and served as a frightening example of what could happen to planets when their leaders resist religious authority.
