Barahona
System information
X:Y Coordinates 684.66 : 284.05[e]

The Barahona system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 2764 was located in the Traders Domain of the Outworlds Alliance.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Barahona system lies close to the Danli and Las Tunas systems.[2][3]

System History[edit]

The Barahona system was either colonised by the Outworlds Alliance during the Star League era or was an already-inhabited system that was incorporated into the Alliance during this era and became significant enough for Inner Sphere nations to begin recording it on maps.[2] Barahona was removed from maps at some point during the Succession Wars,[4] indicating that the system had become too insignificant to merit further recording.

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

As of 3061 Barahona was is still inhabited, apparently as an independent world, and noted to be a popular raiding target although no attack had been successful for a decade. The world was defended by the Barahona Defense Force which did field at least one BattleMech lance as well as hovertanks and helicopters. On 15 August 3061 they fought a raiding party from nearby Sorsk to a draw.[29]

Barahona was described as a "water-rich" and (as of 3061) sparsely populated world. There were few communities, with over 90% of the population located on one continent. Pirate groups had been known to linger in the planet's wilds, but there are too few resources for them to remain there for long.[30]
