The Corey system was home to at least one habitable world, Corey III, and as at 3145 was located in the Sarna Commonality of the Capellan Confederation.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Corey system is located near the Elnath and Yunnah systems[2][3] and consists of a class M1V primary orbited by at least three planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the zenith jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

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

Corey III - more commonly known simply as Corey - is the third planet in the system and has hosted facilities operated by the noted defense contractor Hollis Incorporated.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Having secured a number of worlds from the remains of the Terran Hegemony, Captain-General Kenyon Marik deployed ten regiments from the Marik Militia brigade to launch an invasion of the Capellan Confederation; their goal was to "clear a route ten parsecs wide to Sarna." Both Corey and Wazan fell quickly to the Marik Militia forces, with few of the Capellan garrisons offering much resistance.[6]

Chancellor Barbara Liao was unwilling to cede control of the worlds easily, however; she launched a counterattack against the world of New Delos, which was a Free Worlds League Military staging area, and put blockades in place over both the Corey and Wazan systems, as well as ordering an attack on Calloway VI in 2780. These efforts were despite Kenyon Marik ordering his forces to conduct attacks that saw the worlds of Hall, Ingersoll, New Canton and Outreach firebombed in retaliation for the New Delos attack and in an effort to disrupt the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces efforts to send reinforcements to Corey and Wazan.[6]

The Capellan siege of both Corey and Wazan ended when FWLM forces in the Calloway system detected and ambushed the Capellan forces attempting to launch their attack, leading to several years where the war went almost completely in favour of House Marik.[6]

The Dark Age[edit]

The Hollis Incorporated plant on Corey was apparently raided by troops from the Oriente Protectorate in 3125; the raiders assaulted the plant by making rapid air drops that deployed BattleMechs around the factory and squads of Xiphos battle armor directly into the plant. Those defending the plant were swiftly dispatched and the raiders made off with tons of spare parts for Catapult 'Mechs when they fled the system.[7]

In the mid-3140s it came to light that the raiders who struck at Hollis Incorporated in 3125 weren't actually from the Oriente Protectorate; instead, files accidentally released during the dissolution of the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth revealed that the raiders had actually been elements of the Eighth Free Worlds Legionnaires, who had travelled clandestinely through Oriente Protectorate space while deliberately wearing the colors of the Protectorate.[7]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Military Deployment[edit]




- At this point in time, the Sixth was at 60% of full strength, with 85% of their equipment featuring upgraded technology.


Corey has a single continent named Vallhalla.[1]
