The Gambier system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Tancredi Prefecture of the New Samarkand Military District within the Draconis Combine.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Gambier system is located near the Mansfield and Sturganos systems.[4] From the 2200s to the 2400s, the Gambier system was a stopover point for colony ships moving to other systems spinward from Terra. During this time period, recharge stations were built at the main jump points to ease the congestion of jumpships that frequently traveled through the system.[1]

The facilities at Gambier became a vital link in the SLDF logistical chain during the Star League era once the surge of colony ships ended.[1]

System History[edit]

The Gambier system was colonized by the Terran Alliance during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra.[1] By the end of the Age of War, Gambier had been incorporated into the Federated Suns.[5]

Apocryphal Content Starts

The information after this notice comes from apocryphal sources; the canonicity of such information is uncertain.
Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

The database of the (apocryphal) 1989 video game MechWarrior, set around the year 3025, gives a population of 2.145 billion for Gambier, which it misspells as "Gambler", and describes the environment as "tropical" (out of only three broad impressions of planetary environments given in the game, these being "desert", "ice", or "tropical"). The description one-liner reads "Entertainment world with some industry."
