Hastur
System information
X:Y Coordinates -82.98 : -402.34[e]

The Hastur system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 2767 was located in the Canopus District of the Magistracy of Canopus.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Hastur system is located near the Thurrock and Zathras systems.[2][3]

System History[edit]

The Hastur system was either colonized or absorbed by the Magistract of Canopus at some point prior to the end of the Age of War.[2][4] Hastur vanished from maps during the Third Succession War, indicating that the system had either been abandoned, depopulated, or rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Hastur was a member of the Magistracy of Canopus when a Star League Defense Force task force under the command of Captain-General Marion Marik was assigned to conquer the Magistracy of Canopus in 2577. Hastur was targetted by the SLDF in 2583 following a disastrous ambush at Thurrock, which destroyed almost the entire Canopian navy. Hastur was conquered quickly by VII Corps' 402nd Independent Regiment with support from the Third Marik Militia, with only a token resistance offered by forces on the planet before surrender.[12][47]

Hastur would be occupied by the SLDF for the remainder of the war; once the Reunification War ended, a number of Magistracy worlds were annexed by the Free Worlds League including several nearby, but Hastur remained a part of the Magistracy.[12][13]
