The Gulf Breeze system was home to a number of habitable constructs and as at 3145 was located in the Coventry Province of the Lyran Commonwealth.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Gulf Breeze system is located near the Jatznik and Storfors systems[2][3] and consists of a class A6II primary orbited by at least five planets. During the thirty-first century recharge stations were in place at both the system nadir and zenith jump points. Dotted throughout the system and its asteroid ring were a number of space habitats, the largest of which was named Gulf Breeze Station.[1]

System History[edit]

The Gulf Breeze system was colonized during or shortly before the Age of War by the Commonwealth Mining Corporation. During the Star League era the Gulf Breeze Station was constructed; the largest single spaceborne habitat in the system, Gulf Breeze Station massed 930,000 tons and was capable of sustaining a population of fifty thousand people. Gulf Breeze Station and the habitats survived the collapse of the Commonwealth Mining Corporation, with the local miners deciding to continue to try and sustain themselves locally; during the thirty-first century the local population elected to adopt the name Gulf Breeze for the system, which had previously simply been recorded on maps as Commonwealth Mining Outpost 26 or C.M.O. 26.[1]

Gulf Breeze V is the fifth planet in the system and is natively uninhabitable; the population of the planet lived in domed settlements established on the night side of the tidally-locked world.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

The fifth planet in the system was colonised by the Commonwealth Mining Corporation to exploit the rich mineral wealth of the system's asteroid belt and airless primary planet. CMC set up a number of domed settlements on the night-side of the planet to serve as its main headquarters in-system - the planet being tidally locked to the system star - though numerous other spaceborne habitats were set up to exploit the outer planets, the largest of which being Gulf Breeze Station. After the CMC collapsed amid scandal during the Second Succession War the miners elected to stay.[1]

During the Amaris Coup, the Star League Defense Force would utilize the system as a mustering point of its logistical efforts during the assault of the Rim Worlds Republic. This fact made Gulf Breeze appealing to Interstellar Expeditions, with the system hosting a number of IE team digs in the abandoned CMC ruins on the primary planet's dark side from 3043 until at least as late as 3095, as well as serving as headquarters for IE operations in House Steiner space and the exploration of Rim Worlds ruins.
