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

System Description[edit]

The Bacum system lies close to the Avigait and Chouli systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Bacum system was colonised by the Capellan Confederation during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[4][3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

As the last gasp of Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE faded with the last of the Capellan March troops forced to defend against counterattacking Capellan Confederation troops, the CCAF began leapfrogging from world to world within the Federated Suns, steadily approaching the March capital of New Syrtis as a part of Operation THUNDERSTRIKE. Bacum was one of the worlds hit by the CCAF during the last two weeks of May 3069 as they drew ever-closer to New Syrtis.[28]
