Spectral class F2[1]
Recharge station(s) Zenith (3028)[1]

The Burton system was home to at least one habitable world, Burton V, and as at 3145 was an independent system in the Periphery close to the borders of the Capellan Confederation and Taurian Concordat.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Burton system is located near the Flaum and Paf systems[4] and consists of a class F2 primary orbited by at least five planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the system zenith jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

The Burton system was settled by the Taurian Concordat during the Star League era. [4]

Burton V - more commonly referred to simply as Burton - is the fifth planet in the Burton system and has been home to at least one significant manufacturing concern, O-P Computer Electronics.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Burton is a cool temporate world at the outer edge of the Taurian Concordat near the Capellan Confederation. The planet is home to one of the Concordat's largest electronics manufacture, O-P Computer Electronics. The planetary population is mostly company employees and staff, with a few regional trading houses based on planet. The planet's high tech trade draws a higher than normal rate of pirate raids so in addition to the Taurian Defense Forces assigned to Burton, the local government has raised a force of 2 Battlemech companies as well as a full battalion of conventional forces. Currently the Concordat Jaegers place their Third Battalion on Burton. The Concordat is keenly aware of how valuable the planet is and take extra steps to limit and observe all foreigners on Burton.[1]
