The Cerulean system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Minette Operational Area of the Crucis March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Cerulean system is located near the Meinrad and Ormal systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Cerulean system was colonized at some point during or shortly before the Age of War.[4][5]

During the Star League era, the planet Cerulean was the site of a Department of Mega-Engineering research facility dedicated to finding new water purification technologies. The facility was a massive complex not far from the world's capital city of Thousands Springs City. The high value of the research being done on world attracted the eyes of bandit forces that destroyed billions of dollars of material. These attacks forced the SLDF to station the 280th Mechanized Infantry Division on world for defense in 2709. The 280th destroyed the bandits who conducted the attacks in a nearby uninhabited system after their arrival, but stayed on world to deter further attacks.[6]
