The Human-Draconian War was a brief but devastating war between the expanding Draconian Empire and the Earth Empire. It began with a misunderstanding between human and Draconian ships.

A meeting between human and Draconian representatives had been planned, but both races' ships were damaged in a neutron storm. The Draconians arrived in a battle cruiser which had been stripped of its missiles, but their communications equipment was damaged. The human ship, commanded by John Williams, was "helpless", and Williams believed that the approaching Draconian ship was planning to attack. He decided to attack the Draconian vessel, and destroyed it. Thus began the war. It lasted for three days and over 500 million humans and Draconians were killed. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Space War)

Although factions on both sides of the conflict opposed negotiations, eventually a treaty was signed establishing a frontier between the two empires. The treaty also forbade subversion and espionage.

Twenty years after the peace treaty, the Daleks and the Master tried to sabotage the treaty and start a new war. (TV: Frontier in Space)

Jon Bowman was a veteran of the conflict. (PROSE: Prisoner of the Daleks)

Steven Taylor cited the conflict, along with the Second Dalek War and the Third Dalek War, as factors which put an end to Earth's expansionist phase, leaving planets like Mechanus uncolonised. (PROSE: The Chase)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • In the televised version of The Chase from 1965, Steven merely makes reference to "interplanetary wars". By the time John Peel novelised the serial in 1989, the mythos was much larger, allowing him to replace the phrase with more specific examples like the Human-Draconian War.
