[edit] Planetary Overview

Brisbane is a plush water world rich in fresh-water marine life. More than eighty percent of the landmass on Brisbane is represented in small island chains and archipelagos.[26] Among the lifeforms native to Brisbane was the Brisbane dolphin, a playful and intelligent creature with iridescent skin that had a taste for human company.[27]

Brisbane was also home to the Brisbane Virus, a degenerative nerve disease without a known cure. [28] One of the most high-profile victims of the Brisbane Virus was Janice Calderon, the eighteen-year old heir to Protector Thomas Calderon, who contracted the Virus in 3038.[29] Rumors were circulating in the 3060s that the Federated Suns had developed a cure for the Brisbane Virus, although there had been no official confirmation of this by 3067 and the rumors were circulating against a backdrop of resentment against the Federated Suns as an example of the perfidious behaviour of House Davion.[30]

[edit] Planetary History

Brisbane was located in the border region between the Magistracy of Canopus and the Taurian Concordat, a region where the boundaries between nations were less than clearly defined. The abundant reserves of sea life and quantities of water purification plants that had survived the first three Succession Wars made Brisbane a prized Taurian world and the scene of numerous clashes between Taurian, Magistracy and independent forces, particularly during the early thirty-first century.[26]

The unusual geography of Brisbane led to the Taurian Defense Force coming up with unorthodox methods for defending the world; a garrison of Battlemechs and infantry protected the main planetary starport, located in the northern archipelago, while the only Taurian sea-going naval contingent in the Concordat was also located on the planet.[26]

The white-sand beaches found on the archipelagoes of Brisbane were a popular destination for visitors, although all visitors intending to visit the beaches were required to provide documentation proving that they had been vaccinated against the Brisbane Virus. Other popular tourist attractions on Brisbane were half-day cruises spotting the native dolphins and deep sea-fishing expeditions, although patrol boats had to maintain constant vigilance to prevent the dolphins being hunted by poachers following rumors that their skin, when dried, was a potent aphrodisiac. Whilst being found guilty of poaching only attracted a fine and loss of the guilty party's boat in the first instance, a second offense attracted a ten-year prison sentence.[27]
