Seattle in Days of InfamyEdit
After the Americans' first attempt to retake the Hawaiian Islands failed, Seattle became the home of the USS Hornet, as she underwent repairs. Japanese H8K's frequented the port city, but due to its extreme range north, there weren't very many trips taken there.
Seattle in The Hot WarEdit
Seattle was the first American city to be struck by an atomic bomb in early hours of March 2, 1951 when a flight of Soviet Tu-4s launched an audacious attack on the western U.S. and other places in North America. Seattle was targeted because it was the home of Boeing. Ironically, the day before, Seattle Mayor Bill Devin had announced that Seattle's civil defenses were being expanded, and that air-raid warnings would begin the following week.
Seattle in The House of DanielEdit
While Seattle was impacted by the bursting of the Big Bubble, it wasn't to the same extent as other places in the United States. In fact, Seattle's comparative prosperity was bad for nearby Tacoma.
Seattle in In High PlacesEdit
Seattle in Southern VictoryEdit
Seattle was the site of a major United States naval base. During the Second Mexican War, the Royal Navy bombarded the port. During the Great War a naval squadron based out of Seattle saw action against Canadian forces. However, after the Japanese Navy reinforced the Royal Navy, the Seattle squadron was forced to remain in port. During the Pacific War, the USS Remembrance was docked in Seattle for repairs after the Japanese torpedo attack that launched the war.
Seattle in The Two GeorgesEdit
It was here that Colonel Thomas Bushell and his two companions disembarked from the Empire Builder in order to catch a train to Prince George on their journey to Skidegate. They were surprised and dismayed to be accosted by a pack of reporters wanting to know what they were doing there and what this had to do with the theft of The Two Georges. Bushell repeatedly stated that he had no comment and successfully managed to get away from them in a taxicab to the train station.
Seattle was destroyed with an explosive-metal bomb by the Race in retaliation for the USA's use of The Fat Lady to destroy Race forces in Chicago. Fleetlord Atvar chose Seattle in an attempt to disrupt American shipping. As a bonus, Vice President Henry Wallace, who'd been visiting Seattle in order to boost morale, was killed during the bombing.
