The A Place system is the location of at least one inhabited world and as at 3145 was located in the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The A Place system is located near the Bountiful Harvest and Deweidewd systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The A Place system was settled at some point during the Star League era, after the end of the Reunification War.[4][3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

A Place was devastated by famine in the First Succession War, a direct consequence of the decision by Archon Richard Steiner to conscript commercial freighters into military service during the war. Another consequence of this action was that a rising star within the A Place government by the name of Jermyn LeStat decided to defect to the Free Worlds League on the eve of the Second Succession War, taking a substantial quantity of government information with him on a diplomatic mission to Dieudonne. LeStat was debriefed and then returned to A Place as a double agent, where he supplied military information to the Free Worlds League for a number of years before being retrieved by SAFE and smuggled to Dieudonne after it was believed that Lyran intelligence services were closing in on him.[29]

Despite being paid well by the League, LeStat never spent any of the money they paid him; he was motivated solely by a desire to see House Steiner toppled because of the deaths of all his family during the First Succession War famine.[29]

Military Deployment[edit]
