The Winter system was the location of at least one inhabited planet or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Bucklands Theater of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Winter system is located near the Inarcs and Trentham systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Winter system was settled at some point prior to the end of the Age of War and was a part of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic.[3][4] Winter was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth War.[5]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Civil war erupted in the Rim Worlds Republic in 2575, with the factions polarized around those loyal to First Consul Gregory Amaris and those loyal to the Rift Republican Army and the Rim Provisional Government.[37] The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and in 2579 assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. the first wave of attacks focused on securing significant worlds near Apollo,[38] until a destructive raid on Alarion by the 4th Amaris Fusiliers in retaliation prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and the capture of key worlds.[39]

In late 2584 the SLDF changed tactics again; a number of major RWA units had been destroyed or captured, and the focus for the campaign shifted to capturing worlds of strategic importance, but the campaign was slowed by the greatly increased resistance offered by the RWA and local civilian populations, prompted by atrocities performed by the Draconis Auxiliary Corps when they captured Nightwish in mid-2584. General Nathan Isaacson of Battle Group Apollo assigned the Eighteenth Division a part of VI Corps, to the conquest of Winter in 2587,[40] and the battle was one of the few not singled out as an example of extensive and prolonged civil unrest and insurrection.[41]
