The Aitutaki system had at least one habitable world[1][2] and as of June 3152 was an autonomous system within the Free Worlds League.[3]

System Description[edit]

Aitutaki had at least one recharge station by 3079, which was located at the zenith jump point within the system.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Aitutaki system was colonized during the First Exodus from Terra[4] by the natives from the Principality of Regulus who founded a commercial waystation on a habitable world within the system.[1]

Aitutaki III, more commonly known simply as Aitutaki, is the third planet in the Aitutaki system. Aitutaki was home to a prestigious military academy, the Aitutaki Academy and has long been associated with the Free Worlds League.

Planetary History[edit]

The commercial waystation founded by the Principality of Regulus on Aitutaki was replaced over time with a thriving agricultural community. In 2414, the Principality adopted Aitutaki as its main military training grounds and dedicated much of the planet to military training, replete with exercise grounds and live-fire ranges. The continent of Simla was given over to the Aitutaki Academy for training, and various facilities were constructed on the island to support that training, including a number of series of fortifications used for both offensive and defensive training and a number of artificial towns used for urban combat training. Simla continued to remain dedicated to supporting the Academy until at least the mid-thirty-first century.[1]

The inhabitants of Aitutaki deliberately separated planetary governance from the main financial and commercial concerns on the planet, going so far as to place their government in the spaceport city of Ladakh, while making the city of Srinigar some 250 km east the main center for finance and manufacturing. Srinigar would grow over time to be home to a tenth of the population by the eve of the Jihad.[1]

The two cities were connected by a high-speed rail link that made it possible to travel between the two cities in approximately an hour. In April 3067, a derailment occurred on the line that caused severe disruption despite inflicting no loss of life; the incident was originally believed to be an accident, but after further investigation evidence of sabotage by an unknown organization or entity was discovered.[1]

The Dark Age[edit]

After the shattering of the original Free Worlds League in 3079, Aitutaki would become independent world by the early thirty-second century, breaking away from the newly formed Regulan Fiefs. During its decades of independence Aitutaki ended up being contested between independent nation-states who sometimes warred for control of the planet. The Regulan Fiefs briefly held the world in 3124 after the Fourth Regulan Hussars conducted a daring landing which was disguised as a raid. It would take the neighboring Marik-Stewart Commonwealth's First Free Worlds Guards to force the Fourth Hussars to abandon their claim to the planet.[28] Aitutaki soon found itself reunited with the newly re-formed Free Worlds League in 3139.[34]

An opportunistic raid against Aitutaki in 3140 by the Third Free Worlds Guards led to the destruction of the defending Sixteenth Regulan Hussars and the planet's annexation by the newly-reborn Free Worlds League. An attempt by the Fourth Regulan Hussars to retake the world failed, with the Fourth reduced to a few companies of survivors.[30][35]

IlClan Era[edit]

In early 3152, Aitutaki was chosen as the site for Task Force Accord's component units to train together before liberating Tongatapu. The Third Free Worlds Guards were deliberately paired with the Fourth Regulan Hussars due to their clash on Aitutaki a decade earlier, with lingering animosity resulting in brawling and occasional shooting between members. Eventually tensions settled thanks to their officers' efforts, and Accord went on to secure Tongatapu.[36]

Military Deployment[edit]





Aitutaki has two continents: one is named Andrine and the other is an island named Simla.[2]

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Aitutaki Academy: a prominent military academy located near or in Srinigar on Andrine[1]
  • Ladakh: the planetary capital city[2]
  • Srinigar: a city located in the Koram Shan uplands of Andrine[1]
