The Albert Falls system was the location of at least one habitable planet or construct, and as at 3145 was an independent system within the Free Worlds League.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Albert Falls system is located near the Ashburton[1][2] and Vicksland systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Albert Falls system was settled at some point between the founding of the Free Worlds League[4] and the end of the Age of War.[5]

Star League[edit]

In 2761, a pirate band took a small city hostage on the world of Albert Falls. The 108th Jump Infantry Division, a unit with a unique specialization in parachute drops, were the SLDF troops assigned to the task of eliminating the pirates. The paratroopers of the unit conducted a HALO insertion while other elements surrounded the city to prevent the pirates escape. The paratroopers were able to land behind enemy lines and take out the leadership of the pirate band. The leaderless pirates surrendered shortly there after.[6]
