Owner History[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Originally inhabited during the Star League era and known for its fisheries, Spencer was resettled by the Taurian Concordat and the Magistracy of Canopus as a part of the Treaty of Taurus and was incorporated into the New Colony Region. When the New Colony Region declared itself independent in 3066 Spencer joined the newly-formed Fronc Reaches. As with the populations of the other Fronc Reaches worlds, the inhabitants of Spencer were hopeful that trade agreements with other states such as the Marian Hegemony, Outworlds Alliance and Taurian Concordat would lead to prosperity; in the case of Spencer, the major export was expected to be food from the fisheries which had been restarted by Taurian settlers. The various delicacies produced by the fisheries were already being prepared for sale as far away as Dneiper, Alphard and Taurus.[18]
