The Wyatt system is the location of at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Wolf Empire.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

Wyatt is located near the Callison and Dubhe systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Wyatt system was settled at some point during or before the first half of the twenty-fourth century[3]. By the end of the Reunification War, Wyatt was a member of the Tyrfing Province of the Terran Hegemony.[4]

Political Affilation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

In 2991, the Free Worlds League launched a retaliation raid against Steiner forces on Wyatt. The purpose of this attack was to capture several Chippewa fighters for study. Several Dispossessed pilots with infantry support were dropped in secret on world. This team then infiltrated an airfield and flew off with six Chippewa fighters. Only four of these fighters eventually made it to Marik space and were later put into service with the Free Worlds League Military.[30]

The world was raided in 3016 by Wolf's Dragoons Beta and Delta Regiments. They faced off with the 11th Lyran Guards and 17th Arcturan Guards regiments.[31]

Following the invasion of the Free Worlds League by the Skye and Bolan Provinces of the Lyran Alliance in what was termed Operation ÜBERSCHATTEN, Marshall Jeremy Brett took command of the local FWLM and launched a counteroffensive, under the name Operation BROKEN FIST. BROKEN FIST went beyond simply attempting to recapture worlds that the Lyrans had seized, striking into Lyran space at numerous worlds. Wyatt was one of the worlds hit and was captured by the League on the 1st of September 3068.[23]

As a part of the fighting on Wyatt in 3068 the Bowie Industries plant was hit by a pair of 50-kiloton cobalt-laced nuclear weapons which devastated the plant and nearby Earhardt City. Multiplying the long-term effects of the nuclear strike against the Bowie plant was a Class Nine storm which proceeded to distribute the fallout across a wide swathe of the planet. So much of Wyatt's farmland was contaminated by fallout that the previously self-sufficient world was placed under a Famine Order, with food having to be imported until soil along the equatorial belt could be cleansed of radiation. Estimates at the time indicated that local fisheries would take at least twenty years to recover, and that without substantial assistance from the Free Worlds League or the Lyran Alliance, Wyatt would never recover to the point of having a self-sustaining economy again. The possibility that Wyatt would be unable to survive without imports and would become a dead world was considered very real.[32]

Later in the Jihad the Word of Blake incorporated Wyatt into their Protectorate. Wyatt was one of three worlds to be liberated in January 3078 by forces from the allied coalition fighting on the Lyran front as a part of Operation SCOUR.[33]
