Ballentine
System information
X:Y Coordinates 236.55 : 21.57[e]

The Ballentine system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 2750 was located in the Coreward Combat Theatre region of the Draconis March within the Federated Suns.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Ballentine system lies near the Lucerne and New Ivaarsen systems.[1]

System History[edit]

The Ballentine system was colonised by the Federated Suns during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[2][1] Ballentine vanished from maps during the Second Succession War[3][4] indicating that the system had been abandoned or depopulated.
