The Defiance system was home to at least one habitable world, Defiance VII, and as at 3145 was located in the Minette Operational Area of the Crucis March within the Federated Suns.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Defiance system is located near the Teylingen and Weldon systems[4] and consists of a class G0V primary orbited by at least seven planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the system zenith jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

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

Defiance VII - more commonly known simply as Defiance - is the seventh planet in the system and has two moons named Iowa and Missouri.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Defiance was originally settled as a mining colony. The world was strategically located in the thirty-first century, and forces on-world could redeploy quickly to events in the Capellan March or Draconis March. With this in mind, the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns invested heavily in the world, developing the system for its own use. In late 3059, Defiance was host to the combined elements of Task Force Serpent who arrived to train together prior to their departure for Huntress.[1][6] In 3079 Defiance also hosted a Combat Training Center.[1]
