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

System Description[edit]

The Canal system is located near the Moriguchi and Sweet Water systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Canal system was settled during or shortly before the Age of War.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

As the Star League Defense Force completed the first wave of attacks in Operation MAILED FIST - the name given to the Star League intervention into the civil war that had been raging across the Rim Worlds Republic since 2575 - reprisal attacks from Republican forces against worlds within the Lyran Commonwealth were anticipated.[31]

As predicted, reprisal raids began hitting Lyran worlds in late October 2581, five months after Star League operations began, and Canal was the target of at least one of these raids. The raid on Canal in December was one of small hit-and-run raids launched in company strength by units from the Rim Worlds Army and achieved little when the raiders encountered substantial Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces defenses already in place. An unintended casualty of the raid was the merchant JumpShip Gristwood Weir, which took damage from one of the defending LCAF units during the raid when it was mistaken for the vessel that had transported the Republican raiders to the Canal system.[31]
