The Ipava system is the location of at least one habitable world and, as of 3145, is located in the Markesan Operational Area of the Crucis March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Ipava system is located near the Argyle and New Avalon systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Ipava system was colonised at some point during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra and was one of the founding worlds of the Crucis Pact.[4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

When word began to spread of the genocide being conducted on Kentares IV by Coordinator Jinjiro Kurita, Armed Forces of the Federated Suns units began to launch vengeful cross-border attacks and raids in retaliation against the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery. The first to cross the border were the Third Deneb Light Cavalry, the Seventh Crucis Lancers and the Twentieth Syrtis Fusiliers - all units with recent ties to Kentares. Hitting various worlds near Goderich in October 2797, by mid-November the three commands had liberated both Logandale and Marlette, breaking the DCMS defensive lines on both worlds. Other units were quickly following suit, with AFFS troops landing on Bristol in November, and in December AFFS units near New Avalon launched assaults on both Delavan and Odell, throwing themselves at the leading edge of the Combine invasion. These early attacks were heralds of the AFFS shaking off the low morale of earlier years, and the beginning of a resurgence that would see the AFFS recapture most of the systems lost to the Combine.[34]

The attack against the DCMS forces in the Delavan system began on the 2nd of December, when a small AFFS battlegroup jumped into the system, looking to engage the two DCA destroyers operating in the system; despite First Prince John Davion being just a short jump away on Ipava, planning his own counter-offensive against the DCMS forces at Delavan, he and his command staff were unaware that AFFS units nearby were planning a counter-attack under their own volition - but when word reached Ipava on the 5th of December that both Combine WarShips had been destroyed, he was reported to have greeted the news with the words "Thank God for loose cannons."[34]
