The Baccalieu system is home to at least one habitable planet and as at 3145 was located in the Marian Hegemony.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Baccalieu system is located near the Ballalaba and Suetonius systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

It is unclear when the Baccalieu system was colonised, but with the founding of the Marian Hegemony in 2930 Baccalieu began appearing on maps produced by Inner Sphere nations,[3] indicating that the system had become significant enough to merit being recorded.

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

In or around 3144 a slaver operation from Baccalieu raided the Magistracy of Canopus world of Ballad II, abducting over a thousand Magistracy citizens. This prompted the Magistracy Armed Forces to dispatch the First Magistracy Highlanders on a series of punitive deep raids into the Hegemony. The Highlanders spent almost a year working independently, smashing the slaver operation on Baccalieu and recovering all of the abducted citizens.[33]

Military Deployment[edit]
