The Bethel system was the location of at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Kathil Operational Area of the Capellan March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System DescriptionEdit

The Bethel system is located close to the Andro and Knutdor systems.[3]

System HistoryEdit

The Bethel system was colonised during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra and was an independent system within the Capellan Zone prior to joining the Capellan Confederation when the Confederation formed.[4]

Political AffiliationEdit

Planetary HistoryEdit

During the Jihad, Bethel was the site of one of the more ignoble Word of Blake defeats; while conducting a heavy raid against Bethel on the 22nd of November 3070, the Blakist raiders miscalled a nuclear strike, bringing the nuclear attack down on their own position and effectively destroying themselves.[32]
