The Wisconsin system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was an independent world located close to the borders of the Duchy of Andurien, Free Worlds League and Regulan Fiefs.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Wisconsin system is located near the Skvorec and Ayn Tarma systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Wisconsin system was colonized by the Free Worlds League during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Succession War[edit]

In 2838 the garrison unit defending Wisconsin, the Eighth Marik Militia, was destroyed through a combination of battle and treachery; traitors within the 8th allowed agents acting on behalf of the Capellan Confederation to poison the Militia's water supply, and the members of the unit who survived the poisoning were unable to resist an assault launched by Justine's Grenadiers. Many of the Militia troops were captured, but few survived their incarceration. Those members of the 8th who did survive were subsequently rolled up into the Twenty-third Marik Militia.[28]

Dark Age[edit]

The pirate band known as the Hateful Survivors raided Wisconsin in 3140 with a battalion-strong force of BattleMechs. The defenders on Wisconsin at the time consisted of the mercenary unit Pandora's Box, who had great difficulty battling the Hateful Survivors, who proceeded to rampage through the major cities on the planet. Pandora's Box finally forced the Hateful Survivors to retreat when a force consisting of three lances of Koshi 'Mechs managed to break through the Hateful Survivors' lines, engaging and destroying most of the Survivors' command lance and locating the pirate DropShips, which were promptly the subject of an artillery bombardment.[29]
