The Wark system is a Deep Periphery system that Clan Steel Viper maintained a surface garrison on as a part of the long route connecting the Clan Homeworlds with the Inner Sphere during the Clan Invasion era.[1]

System Description[edit]

Located relatively close to the Deep Periphery systems known as Cambridge and Trinity, the Wark system primary is a type G0V star. The Clan garrison in the system was a surface garrison located 10.5 days from the system jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

Although the Wark system was known to be garrisoned by forces from Clan Steel Viper during Operation REVIVAL through to at least the mid-3050s, it is unclear which Clan(s) established the garrison or when the system was first garrisoned.[1]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

The Inner Sphere was aware By 3095 that Wark had been abandoned.[3] In 3083 a Clan Diamond Shark Watch mission that visited several Operation REVIVAL waypoints discovered that elements of the Skjolden and Torvald sælgeflådes of the Jàrnfòlk were conducting salvage operations on Wark as well as in the Bazaar system. The Diamond Sharks retrieved the salvage, which was quickly surrendered by the Jàrnfòlk, and the assumption was that the Jàrnfòlk had also conducted salvage operations on the other outposts at Gwithian, Kinbrace and Trinity.[2]
