The Ardoz system is the location of at least one habitable world and, as of 3145, is located in the Skandia Province of the Rasalhague Dominion.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Ardoz system is located near the Halesowen and Setubal systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Ardoz system was settled during or soon after the First Exodus from Terra and by the end of the Age of War had been incorporated into the Draconis Combine.[4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Clan Ghost Bear invaded Ardoz in February 3052, with the Trinary Command of the Third Bear Guards (a part of Alpha Galaxy) successfully capturing the world. The HPG on Ardoz was destroyed during the attack, and as late as 3058 no detail was available on the actual campaign or what the Ghost Bears had found - if anything - on Ardoz. Rumors suggested that the Ghost Bears had a Star League base on the planet, but the Ghost Bears were refusing to allow ComStar to rebuild the HPG or provide any information about events on the planet. Even the name and nature of the forces defending Ardoz when the Third Bear Guards landed was unknown.[26]
