The Chaffee system is the location of at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3095 was an independent system located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description[edit]

Chaffee is located in the rimward region of the Deep Periphery beyond the Perses-Cepherus Cloud Complex. Chaffee is located close to the Fager and Mizdargh systems, although as with many systems located in the Deep Periphery, close is a relative term; the closest of these systems, Fager, lies almost 250 light years distant from Chaffee.[1]

  • Chaffee was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of Chaffee, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available on Chaffee.
  • There are two systems named Chaffee, one located in the Deep Periphery and one in the Lyran Commonwealth region. There is also an IndustrialMech named the Chaffee, and all three are or were most probably named after Doug Chaffee, a long-time BattleTech artist.
