The Calafell system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Buena Province of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Calafell system is located near the Batajnica and Enzesfled systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Calafell system was settled during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[3][4][5]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

During the Jihad, the Democracy Now movement attempted to achieve the formation of a democratic state based around worlds in the Alarion Province of the Lyran Alliance. In March 3071, Democracy Now protestors stormed the palace of the planetary duke of the nearby world of Enzesfled,[31] prompting the Enzesfled government to issue urgent pleas for assistance. The Kaumberg Planetary Guard mobilized in response; this mobilization caused militant Democracy Now movements on the worlds of Batajnica and Calafell to become increasingly confrontational, and when elements of the Kaumberg Planetary Guard landed on Enzesfled on the 25th of May full-fledged rioting broke out on both Batajnica and Calafell in protest.[32] A few months later on the 21st of December, one of the two leaders of Democracy Now, Lindon Ashley, narrowly survived an assassination attempt on Calafell; the other leader of Democracy Now, Kelvin Strauss, wasn't as lucky. Strauss was assassinated during a rally on Novara on the same day the attempt was made on Ahley's life.[33][34][35]
