Acoma
System information
X:Y Coordinates 224.42 : -62.26[e]

The Acoma system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 2750 was located in the Markesan Operational Area of the Crucis March within the Federated Suns.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Acoma system is located near Markesan and New Valencia.[1]

System History[edit]

The Acoma system was settled at some point in the Star League era after the end of the Reunification War.[2][3] The Acoma system vanished from maps during the First Succession War indicating that the system had been abandoned or depopulated.[4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2789 the Draconis Combine began a hugely successful invasion of the Federated Suns, with Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units pouring across the border and conquering system after system while the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns desperately tried to mount a defense amidst mass confusion and conflicting orders exacerbated by the DCMS specifically targeting communications systems and JumpShips as priorities for destruction to disrupt communications. The first attempt to break the invasion was mustered by First Prince John Davion in 2788, and that attempt - Operation SOLAR SHIELD - was an expensive disaster. By the time Prince John's second plan had begun at the end of 2789, the Dragon had advanced as far as conquering such far-flung Federated Suns worlds as Acoma, Batavia, Imbrial III, Kestrel and Saunemin.[33][9]

Prince John's second plan - a massive naval response under the operational command of Admiral Kenneth Jones - saw AFFS forces return to Acoma in early 2790, striking at the Draconis Combine Admiralty ships in the system, and only staying in the system for a week before moving on to the next target.[9] Like other minor worlds such as Chota, Nouveau Toulouse and Tallassee, by the end of 2795 Acoma was dying, either as a result of the damage taken during the assault or as a result of starvation and disease following the collapse of local trade and infrastructure in the region after the invasion.[34][10]
