Owner History[edit]

Planetary Info[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. Its population is self-sustaining, providing its own food crops and famed for its exotic fish export known as the "mermaid" fish.

The planet's capital is named Houston, which is also its largest city. As of 3054, the majority of the population lives in Houston, while the rest of its population live 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.[27]

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.[19]
