The Tau Ceti system famously was the destination of humanity's first manned mission to another star system when the TAS Pathfinder under Captain Norm McKenna jumped to Tau Ceti and back in 2108, subsequently leading to the founding of the first human colony in another star system on Tau Ceti IV, which was renamed New Earth.

Since star systems are often referred to by the name of their (primary) habitable world,[3] the Tau Ceti system also became known as New Earth, though apparently not exclusively so (it was referred to as the Tau Ceti system in 2775).[4]

System Description[edit]

Tau Ceti is located near the Rigil Kentarus and Thorin systems. Another planet in the Tau Ceti system is the gas giant Zeus, which has an ice moon named Ganymede.[4]

Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

The colonization of New Earth as seen in the intro video of BattleTech (video game, apocryphal)[50]

New Earth, formerly known as Tau Ceti IV, has the distinction of being the first colonized planet outside of Terra's solar system. Colonization was inaugurated on 8 March 2116 with Martin Cabot appointed as first governor of the colony.[51]

On 15 December 2108, Tau Ceti was the first world outside the Sol system to be walked on by human feet, when Engineer Michelle Land walked on the surface of the world. The TAS Pathfinder had entered the Tau Ceti system on the 5th of December, the beginning of a series of voyages of exploration to many worlds around the Sol system.[52] Tau Ceti IV would prove to be the first garden colony world.[53] The abundant resources and benign environment of Tau Ceti IV led to colonists and corporations flocking to the world.[1]

The TAS Pathfinder wasn't the first vessel from Terra to make it to the Tau Ceti system, however; the Magellan Program had launched missions to systems around Terra in 2029, with probes known to have successfully reached Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani and Epsilon Indi.[54]

The first humans to settle the planet were a team of 35 civilian scientists in February 2110. In 2116, the TAS Ark arrived to New Earth with the first 500 human colonists to officially leave Earth to colonize a new world under the authority of Martin Cabot.[55]

For political reasons New Earth was controlled directly by the Terran Alliance rather than by any individual Terran nations (unlike humanity's second colonized world, Rigil Kentarus, and numerous settlements after it). Being the very first planet settled by human outside of Sol, the Alliance had to balance the competing needs for 'living space' of Terra's two hundred member-nations.[56]

Circa the mid-twenty-second century, one of the Slowboat Colonization ships that had left Terra prior to the FTL first ships creation arrived to New Earth to find a burgeoning colony already established by Terran Alliance JumpShips. The Alliance, who had a long memory for dissidents, turned those missions into laughingstocks and not the historical achievements they were.[57] It is not known what happened to those colonists.[citation needed]

Situated less than one jump from Terra, New Earth remained under Terran Alliance control following the Outer Reaches Rebellion and the Demarcation Declaration of 2242,[6] and later became one of the worlds within the Alliance Core region of the Terran Hegemony.[10]

Reign of the Star League[edit]

By the height of the Star League era, New Earth was one of the most heavily developed and industrialized worlds in the Terran Hegemony, home to five major Star League Defense Force contractors in addition to local companies such as the New Earth Trading Company. Every continent on the planet was home to a mix of major cities and heavy industry, including the polar continent of Arctiqua. In addition to the noted SLDF academy known as the Combat College of New Earth, which the SLDF constructed on McKenna just outside the planetary capital, Foundation Point, the SLDF also constructed dozens of Castles Brian across the planet.[1] The SLDF's Regular Army Headquarters was located on New Earth.[58]

After its creation, the SLDF Twentieth Fleet was stationed within the New Earth system while they trained with the Third Fleet before deployment.[59]

The Amaris Crisis[edit]

When Stefan Amaris launched Operation APOTHEOSIS, his usurpation of the Terran Hegemony, one of the initial stages of his campaign was to secure naval domination of the systems within the Hegemony. Rim Worlds Republic naval forces consisting of WarShips, DropShips, and aerospace fighters attempted to secure the two major jump points in every inhabited system, including New Earth.[60]

There were eighteen assorted SLDF WarShips in the New Earth system when a task force of twenty RWR WarShips jumped into the system, intending to interdict New Earth and destroy any SLDF ships present. New Earth was a vital supply world for the SLDF, and Commodore Altran Serdamba was responsible for the security of a major SLDF supply convoy assembling in the system at the time, intended to transport supplies and reinforcements to the war effort in the Periphery. Commodore Serdamba commanded a convoy protection flotilla of four destroyers and nine corvettes from his command ship, the Luxor-class cruiser SLS Van der Bergh; also in the system at the time was Vice Admiral Dmitrios Rummolo and his flagship, the Texas-class battleship SLS Wales, along with a squadron consisting of a Congress-class frigate and two Essex-class destroyers. Vice Admiral Rummolo was due to take command of the Ninth Fleet on promotion, and had only been in the system a few days when the Rim Worlds vessels arrived.[60]

The Rim Worlds vessels targeted the two SLDF command vessels, striking at the SLS Wales and the SLS Van der Bergh. The SLS Wales was caught by surprise, but the SLS Van der Bergh and her flotilla had been engaged in combat drills in preparation for their return to the Periphery, and had remained at combat stations as the Rim Worlds vessels approached. When the Rim Worlds ships fired, they scored several significant hits against the SLS Wales, but found the convoy protection group immediately returning fire and launching Fighters. Commodore Serdamba's group screened Vice Admiral Rummolo's squadron for several vital minutes as the crew of the SLS Wales and the other vessels raced to battle stations.[60]

When the heavyweight SLS Wales and the other ships of Rummolo's squadron joined the fight, the greater combat experience of the SLDF troops began to tell; the battle lasted more than half an hour before the Rim Worlds fleet retreated, having lost fourteen vessels. The combined SLDF forces had lost eight of their own ships in the battle, and still didn't know anything more beyond the fact that they had been attacked by a Rim Worlds Republic fleet.[60]

Vice Admiral Rummolo ordered Commodore Serdamba to take the remains of the convoy escort group and jump to the Lagrange point near Tau Ceti V to defend the Apollo-Four shipyards there. With Serdamba's ships defending the Nicholas Spacecraft's facilities, the SLS Wales and the two destroyers from his squadron which had survived the attack fought a holding action at the jump point for the next twenty four hours, while quick charging their drives. Rummolo then had the two destroyers jump to the Apollo-Four shipyards; Rummolo and the SLS Wales then led thirteen assorted government and military JumpShips to a secret SLDF naval base designated Freedom Station.[60]

During the SLDF liberation of New Earth the Amaris Empire Armed Forces units on New Earth began destroying the cities and infrastructure of New Earth when it became clear they couldn't hold the planet. The AEAF destroyed the Combat College, all of the major factories and the majority of the Castles Brian, gutting the planetary infrastructure and ravaging the environment in the process. The population was left victim to widespread famine and disease in addition to the shock and demoralization that went hand in hand with the damage inflicted on their world.[1]


In the first week of July 2788 Jerome Blake launched a military strike against New Earth. The ComStar forces - comprised of former SLDF personnel who had elected to remain in the Inner Sphere - moved to secure the former SLDF headquarters on New Earth, with the intention of securing the valuable data and equipment there. The raid inflicted minimal damage, as ComStar's forces were welcomed by the local militia, a remnant of the rapidly fading Terran Hegemony. The militia went so far as to help the ComStar forces dismantle the SLDF facilities for transport, and Blake's forces left New Earth on the 11th of July. Blake had originally intended to follow the raid on New Earth with an operation similar to that conducted on Terra a few days before, dubbed Operation SILVER SHIELD, aimed at annexing all of the surviving Hegemony worlds that hadn't already been taken by the Great Houses. Blake hadn't predicted just how quickly the various Houses would go to war, however, and this planned third phase of Operation SILVER SHIELD died stillborn.[61] The ComStar forces all extensively looted the Bergan Industries facilities, removing advanced equipment.[62]

Succession Wars[edit]

Under Lyran rule for the majority of the Succession Wars New Earth was unable to make a significant recovery because of the constant raids and battles being fought in the region between the Lyrans and their enemies. Only one major corporation from the Star League era managed to continue operating - the New Earth Trading Company. Operating out of its headquarters in the city of Meredith on Neoasia was a major trade and transport facilitator for several centuries.[1]

By the late Succession Wars era, descendants of the eight surviving Amerindian tribes of North America had established the Amerindian Federation dedicated to saving their culture and preserving the way of life of their ancestors on Tau Ceti's II's southern continent.[48][63]

First Succession War[edit]

The Free Worlds League struck at New Earth in 2789, crippling the Dassault-Shimmon shipyards in orbit above the planet. Months later, the surviving Armed Forces of the Federated Suns forces from Operation BRASS RING appeared in the New Earth system and sacrificed four DropShips and their last two squadrons of aerospace fighters to destroy what was left of the shipyards.[64]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 2967, archeologist-turned-treasure hunter Harold Jones stole nearly a million C-bills' worth of jewels from the burial crypt of the noble rulers of the planet.[65]

In 3024 the planet saw the first training exercises between one battalion from infantry, armor and BattleMechs from the Tenth Lyran Guards and similar forces from the Federated Suns, with the Suns forces consistently outmaneuvering and outfighting the Lyran forces.[66]

Operation SCORPION[edit]

During Operation SCORPION in May of 3052, a number of ComStar BattleMechs, led by Precentor Hasegawa in his Lancelot, obliterated the Delaware people's town hall, killing the tribal elders.[67]

FedCom Civil War[edit]

In 3066 Grumman Industries established a subsidiary factory on New Earth as a result of massive investment in the company by the Word of Blake to produce Zephyr hovertanks for the expanding Word of Blake Militia and Protectorate Militia.[68]

The Jihad[edit]

New Earth was incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate by conquest on 7 October 3068;[69] the Word of Blake forces responsible for conquering New Earth allegedly used tactical nuclear weapons to secure their hold on the planet.[37][70] Subsequently, one of the garrison units on New Earth, Pinky's Irregulars, attempted to break contract with the Word of Blake in 3073; the Blakists responded by destroying the Irregulars. The remains of the Irregulars would remain trapped under the north polar ice cap of New Earth until Skibinski's Salvage recovered ten of the eleven 'Mechs belonging to Pinky's Irregulars in the mid 3080s, along with the bodies of eight of the Irregulars.[71]

Dissidents within the Grumman-New Earth branch began to harbor doubts about the actions being taken by the Word of Blake outside of the Word of Blake Protectorate, and in 3071 those dissidents began smuggling Zephyrs to enemies of the Protectorate, with figures as high up as Vice President Rudolph Brice assisting in the smuggling efforts. More than two hundred Zephyrs were smuggled out from the New Earth facility before the dissidents departed on a long "retreat" at Grumman's headquarters on Terra, and when the smuggling operations were uncovered the entire New Earth facility was placed under lockdown pending detailed investigations. Brice was targeted by a Word of Blake detainment team that raided Grumman's offices in the early 3070s; having been identified as being responsible for diverting Zephyrs to both black marketeers within the Word of Blake Protectorate and agents within the Skye region of the Lyran Alliance, Brice narrowly escaped the detainment team and went on the run, with the Word of Blake placing a bounty of 75 million C-bills on his head.[68]

Later in the Jihad as resistance to the Blakists became more organized under the auspices of Devlin Stone's allied coalition New Earth was subject to a heavy raid, intended to test the interior defenses of the Protectorate. The raiding party was spearheaded by Com Guard troops and hit New Earth in late July 3076 and engaged the Tenth Division and the Twelfth Division but failed in destroying the NETC plant.[72][73][74] December same year saw the Devil's Brigade failing to destroy the targeted NETC headquarters.[72]

It would be almost two years before New Earth was targeted for liberation by the allied coalition as a part of Operation SCOUR; a contingent of roughly four Galaxies of mixed Clan forces drawn from the Lyran front of the Operation struck at New Earth on 8 February 3078, meeting heavy resistance.[75][76]

The initial attack was rebuffed, with the Clan forces having retreated by mid February; while the media reported that the SDS in the New Earth system had been destroyed or at least heavily damaged, it also reported that up to four Clan WarShips had been destroyed, and that the Clan forces had been forced to retreat due to the presence of not just the anticipated Protectorate Militia Divisions and Militia Division, but also at least one Shadow Division. There were also unsubstantiated rumors that the forces from Clan Ghost Bear, Clan Jade Falcon and Clan Wolf had arrived at different times, with the Ghost Bears arriving early, and then failed to work together.[77] One of the destroyed WarShips was subsequently identified as the Aegis-class heavy cruiser CJF Frost Falcon;[78] another was the Volga-class transport CGB Ursine Boatman,[79] and the third the Vincent-class corvette CSR Huninn, a vessel from the Clan Snow Raven Ice Storm Naval Star assigned to support the Ghost Bear Dominion during the Jihad.[80] During the campaign for New Earth the allied forces destroyed a WarShip the Blakists had suborned in the opening stages of the Jihad, the Eagle-class FWLS Percival.[81]

The Ghost Bear ground forces, drawn from Omicron and Xi Galaxies, were lucky to escape from the trap, and the damage taken made New Earth the last campaign of the Jihad for both Galaxies.[82] and Clan Jade Falcon Alpha Galaxy and Clan Wolf Delta Galaxy were also mauled by the WoB forces composed of the Tenth Division, the Twelfth Division, the First New Earth Protectorate Militia Division and the recently assigned Fiftieth Shadow Division, which forced the Clan forces to retreat.[72]

The Coalition bypassed New Earth but returned in April 3079 after the fall of Terra. At that time only the New Earth Protectorate Militia remained to defend the world, and surrendered after a brief encounter with what was left of the Ghost Bear Dominion's Xi and Omicron Galaxies.[72][83]

The Jihad cost New Earth heavily; by the time New Earth was free once more, the Blakists had destroyed the planetary capital, New Foundation, along with a host of other major cities including Meredith. Much of the industry on New Earth that had managed to survive the Succession Wars was destroyed during the Jihad, and the air, earth and water were all poisoned to varying degrees.[1]

In the wake of the Jihad the planetary government on New Earth was one of many to pass a law stating that any war matériel manufactured or used by the Word of Blake had to be destroyed; the law was more liberal than that passed on many worlds, in that it allowed components from Blakist machines to be sold, but items such as chassis were retired to bone yards for later scrapping.[84] As it was, the liberation of New Earth saw the industries on the planet take heavy levels of damage, both as a result of combat on the surface of the planet and as a result of orbital bombardment by the defending Word of Blake ships and SDS network.[85]

The Dark Age[edit]

The damage inflicted on New Earth during the Jihad was so heavy that the planet would likely have been abandoned, if not for the resettlement program driven by Devlin Stone. New Earth remained a deeply scarred planet at least as late as 3130, but industry had begun to return to the planet in the first stages of what promised to be a recovery for New Earth, albeit a long and slow one. With New Foundation destroyed during the Jihad the city of Wiedergeburt became the new planetary capital; located on the southernmost tip of Arctiqua, Wiederegeburt suffered minimal effects from fallout from the devastation inflicted in both the Jihad and the Amaris Coup.[1]

Military Deployment[edit]


New Earth is a world blessed with an abundant water supply and significant reserves of minerals, metals and chemicals. New Earth has five continents; the largest of these is the massive continent of Neoasia located in the southern hemisphere. The continent of Arctiqua is located at the north pole, and the continent of McKenna is in the northwest. East of McKenna is the continent of Lanhold; the fifth continent is the island continent of Kellargo.[1]
