The Benet system was the location of at least one habitable world, Benet III, and as at 3085 was located in the Robinson Operational Area of the Draconis March within the Federated Suns.[2]

System Description[edit]

The Benet system is located close to the Crossing and Harrow's Sun systems. Benet was consistently displayed as Benet III on maps.[2]

System History[edit]

The Benet system was colonized at some point during or shortly before the Age of War.[3][4] Benet vanished from maps during the Dark Age[2][5] indicating that the system had been abandoned or depopulated.

Benet III is the third planet in the Benet system. Lacking any moons, Benet II has a high-pressure atmosphere and has been home to a manufacturing facility operated by the defense company Johnston Industries.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Benet III was settled in order to take advantage of the metals in the world's crust. These metals are largely platinum and related metals.[1] The Draconis Combine retaliated to deep raids across several Combine worlds by Federated Suns commandoes and Draconis March forces seeking POWs from the FedCom Civil War in early August 3068[6] by launching a series of raids and attacks against Federated Suns worlds. The retaliatory attacks took place in the second week of September, and Benet III was one of the worlds hit by a raiding force.[7] By the end of the Jihad Benet III was considered an unremarkable world, and the stubbornness of the population was cited as the main reason for the planet's continued inhabitation.[1]
