The atrocity at Jata was the first in a series of bombings that took place in the United Planets of Earth (UPE) in 2546. While only the initial attacks took place in Jata, Cestulus (Davien II), the name became synonymous with bombings that were shown to have used the same technology on other worlds. After multiple attacks and almost five thousand civilian deaths with no perpetrator identified by the Advocacy, then-High General Ivar Messer used the attacks to stoke public fervor to support the creation of the office of Prime Citizen, to which he was shortly elected. The architect of the bombings was never conclusively found. Evidence uncovered in 2806 by historian Sydney Kamarck posits that Messer himself may have arranged the bombings with two former acquaintances from the UPE Army.
