The Ashkum system was the location of at least one habitable planet and as at 3145 was located in the Kathil Operational Area of the Capellan March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Ashkum system is located near the Bell and Westphalia systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Ashkum system was settled at some point prior to the Age of War and was a part of the Sarna Supremacy prior to the formation of the Capellan Confederation in 2366.[4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

In 3068 Duke George Hasek launched an invasion of the Capellan Confederation under the name Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE, ostensibly to liberate the worlds of the St. Ives Compact.[27] The CCAF responded with Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, which not only liberated the worlds seized by the Capellan March forces but which also struck back at worlds in the Federated Suns. Ashkum was one of the worlds hit, with CCAF troops attacking on the 18th of February 3069 as part of a wave of attacks that hit eight seperate systems on the same day.[28]
