The Last Chance system was home to at least one habitable world and (as of 3145) was located in the Periphery region known as The Barrens.[1][2] It was approximately 503 light-years from Terra in the coreward direction.[e]


System Description[edit]

The Last Chance system was located near the Cryfder and Botany Bay systems.[3][4]

System History[edit]

The Last Chance system was either settled by the Rim Worlds Republic during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War, or was an already-settled planet that became significant enough for Inner Sphere nations to record its location within the Republic's Apollo Province.[5][3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Jade Falcon conquered Last Chance during the opening stages of Operation REVIVAL, the Clan invasion of the Inner Sphere.[31][32] There, Etienne Balzac carried out secret testing and development of ProtoMechs outside the eyes of the greater Clan.[28] Last Chance was then invaded for a second time when forces from Clan Ice Hellion captured the world from the Falcons as part of an invasion of the Jade Falcon Occupation Zone;[31][32] Star Captain Lira led forces from the Ice Hellion Beta Galaxy to capture Last Chance in late September or early October 3071.[39] The Ice Hellions were only able to hold Last Chance until December, however, when the world was assaulted by Clan Hell's Horses.[32][40]

In 3082, the Hell's Horses withdrew their forces from several systems, among them Last Chance. The system joined Botany Bay and Götterdämmerung to form the Ragnarök Union.[41]
