The Borghese system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Borghese system is located near the Grunwald and Surcin systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Borghese system was settled during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra and was a part of the Tamar Pact prior to the formation of the Lyran Commonwealth in the twenty-fourth century.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

The population of Borghese was self-sustaining, providing its own food crops and famed for its exotic fish export known as the "mermaid" fish. The planet's capital was named Houston, which was also its largest city. As of 3054, the majority of the population lived in Houston, while the rest of its population lived in smaller towns and villages. Early settlers had tried to expand their habitats to the oceans of Borghese, however the planet's violent ocean storms made this impractical.[28]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Wolf attacked and conquered Borghese during the second half of January 3070 as one of a series of assaults into Lyran Alliance space, shadowing the path taken by Clan Jade Falcon, who were also using the disruption caused by the Jihad to annex a number of Lyran worlds.[21]

Geography[edit]

Borghese is a world of vast salt water oceans. The surface is devoid of any large, continental land masses; instead it is dotted with islands, the largest of which is smaller than Terra's continent of Australia.[28]
