In 2581, a mercenary fleet of blackhawks hired by Omuta dropped fifteen antimatter planet-busters on Garissa. The blast devastated Garissa and despite the efforts of the Confederation Navy only about two million Garissans survived.
The Confederation imposed sanctions against Omuta, prohibiting any interstellar trade or transport for thirty years. The blockade was enforced by Confederation Navy. The members of the ruling council of Omuta were executed for their part in the genocide.

The DDA distributes all profits equally to the survivors of the genocide, wherever in the Confederation they settled.
