Spectral class K0V[1]
Recharge time 191 hours[1]
Recharge station(s) Zenith[1]

The Wapakoneta system was home to at least one habitable world, Wapakoneta VI, and as at 3145 was located in the Matsuida Prefecture of the New Samarkand Military District within the Draconis Combine.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Wapakoneta system is located near the Lima and Marlowe's Rift systems[2][3] and consists of a class K0V primary orbited by at least six planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the zenith jump point.[4]

System History[edit]

The Wapakoneta system was settled during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[5][6]

Wapakoneta VI - more commonly referred to simply as Wapakoneta - is the sixth planet in the system and has a single moon named Auglaize.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

During the thirty-first century the bulk of the planetary population lived on New Wisconsin, with a much smaller population living on Little Florida Island. The other three continents on Wapakoneta were left uninhabited. The local economy was largely based around exporting aquaculture-grown marine life, although the planet had many small, beautful islands that could have generated a valuable tourism industry if not for Wapakoneta's perilous location on the border between the Draconis Combine and Federated Suns.[1]

Geography[edit]

Wapakoneta has five large continents and many islands scattered through the large freshwater seas that cover most of its surface. The largest continent, New Wisconsin, is located on the equator and is covered in forests. Little Florida Island is the smallest continent and it is also the one located furthest away from the equator; most of the island is covered in glaciers. The remaining three continents are scattered across the planet's surface and are subject to massive typhoons that whip across them constantly.[1]

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Camp Getty: military base established by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns at Stygian Shoals. reputedly the best marine combat school in the Draconis March at one point.[1]
  • Stygian Shoals: an island located off the south coast of Little Florida island which measures sixty kilometers long and sixteen wide.[1]
  • Tassel: a city located on Little Florida Island.[1]
