Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Exeter was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[6] Exeter was liberated by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns in 2810 as part of the second major AFFS counter-offensive of the First Succession War against the Draconis Combine.[7]

Geography[edit]

Exeter has four continents named Bristol, Cornwall, Devon and Plymouth.[1]

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Exeter: the planetary capital city, located on Devon.[1]
  • New Bristol: the location of the Galtor blue water naval yards on Bristol.[1]

Industrial Centers[edit]

Notes[edit]

Two of the continents on Exeter - Cornwall and Devon - appear to be named for counties located in south-west England within the United Kingdom. Bristol, Plymouth and Exeter are all cities in the south of England, although while Exeter is the county town for Devon, neither Bristol nor Plymouth are located in either Cornwall or Devon.
