The Electra system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Taurian Concordat.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Electra system is located near the Merope and Ridgebrook systems and is one of the most prominant of the many inhabited systems within the region known as the Pleiades Cluster.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Electra system was settled at some point prior to the Reunification War, and by the end of the Age of War was a member of the Taurian Concordat.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

During the opening stages of the Jihad, forces from the Taurian Concordat invaded Electra. The Taurian forces put up a dogged resistance against efforts from the Federated Suns to remove them, but on the 7th of April 3071 the mercenary unit Hansen's Roughriders resorted to using fuel-air explosives against one of the Taurian bases, which had been dug into a canyon. When clearing the battlefield after the bombing, the Roughriders recovered Taurian nuclear weapons which had been stored in the camp.[44]

Military Deployment[edit]

2578[edit]

- At this point in time, the First Taurian Lancers were deployed across Maia and Electra. The First was at 60% of full strength.
