System information
X:Y Coordinates 580.48 : 206.47[e]

System Description[edit]

The Braben's Frontier system is located near the Eigerland and Voehn systems.[1][2] It has a small red star as the system primary and at least one orbiting world that was habitable.[3]

System History[edit]

The Braben's Frontier system was colonized during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War. It was located in the Onverwacht Province of the Outworlds Alliance.[4][1][2] Braben's Frontier vanished from maps during the later Succession Wars, indicating that the system had been abandoned, depopulated or rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.[5][6]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary Description[edit]

Braben's Frontier orbited its star every six days which resulted in little to no seasonal changes on world. The world was also rife with volcanic activity which led to a rich soil that was good for agriculture.[32]

Planetary History[edit]

Star League[edit]

Braben's Frontier was colonized for the planet's rich soil that made the world a breadbasket for crops genetically engineered for the world's climate. This led to many automated agricultural facilities across the planet. The importance of the world and its high-tech proprietary technologies required the presence of a Star League Defense Force garrison to stop pirates as well as industrial espionage.[33]
