The Ender's Cluster is a star cluster containing a number of inhabited planets and in 3145 was located in the Timbuktu Theater of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

Ender's Cluster is located near the Aberystwyth and Florida systems. Ender's Cluster is one of a number of multi-star clusters found within the Inner Sphere and near Periphery, with others including the Chaine Cluster, Pleiades Cluster and Brocchi's Cluster. Unlike some other clusters, no individual notable worlds have been identified within Ender's Cluster on maps.[1][2][3]

System History[edit]

Ender's Cluster was either settled during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War,[4][5] or was an already-inhabited cluster that became significant enough during this era to be recorded on maps by the Inner Sphere nations. Whereas the number of habited worlds in other clusters such as the Pirate's Haven cluster has varied over time, the number of settled worlds within Ender's Cluster has remained static at ten for centuries.[5][1][2][3]

Enders Cluster was originally a part of the Timbuktu Province of the Rim Worlds Republic and was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth War.[6]
