The Brookeland system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Tancredi Prefecture of the New Samarkand Military District within the Draconis Combine.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Brookeland system is located near the De Berry and Lyceum systems.[1][2] The bright star at the center of the system is valued for its ability to quickly recharge K-F drives. [3]

System History[edit]

The Brookeland system was settled during or shortly before the Age of War, and by the end of the era was a part of the Federated Suns.[4]

During the years of the Star League, the surface of Brookeland was covered by a vast mining and refining industry that had been expanding since the world was colonized centuries before. The mining operations for the vast quantities of iridium, silver, uranium and titanium justified the presence of a Star League Defense Force garrison. The SLDF also utilized the system's bright sun by placing a recharge station in each of the system's primary jump points for fast interstellar troop movements.[5]
