System Description[edit]

System History[edit]

The Nockatunga system was colonized at some point prior to or during the early 23rd Century.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

The Star League[edit]

During the last years of the Star League, Nockatunga was considered a vital world. If any hostilities were to break out between the Lyran Commonwealth and the Free Worlds League, many believed that Nockatunga would be the first place targeted by the Lyrans.[30]

In an effort to discourage any hostilities, the SLDF positioned a second division, the 233rd Mechanized Infantry Division, on world after the "Birthday Proclamations" of 2755.[2]

The Jihad[edit]

Following the dissolution of the Free Worlds League in January 3079, elements within the Lyran Alliance moved to annex a number of former League worlds between August and September that year. Nockatunga was one of seven worlds conquered during this period, and the invasion only stopped when Archon Adam Steiner declared that any other bouts of what he termed "unauthorized adventurism" would be considered an act of treason.[24] The Lyran assault on Nockatunga was a purely conventional attack in which the LAAF forces concentrated on defeating the defending 34th Marik Militia and local forces, although to limit any collateral damage the 34th had to withdraw. The capture of the primary spaceports on Nockatunga along with the planetary capital by the 4th Alliance Guards was completed during early September 3079. Nockatunga was one of two worlds where forces from the Duchy of Tamarind-Abbey and the Lyran Alliance faced each other in the immediate aftermath of the Jihad, with the other being Epsilon, which was conquered prior to Nockatunga. Prior to the Archon's declaration that any further attacks would be considered treasonable acts, diplomats from Tamarind and Abbey present on Tharkad were volubly protesting the attacks and Dominic Levaque, the Lyran ambassador to Tamarind, worked hard to reassure the Tamarind government that the attacks were being investigated and that any wrongdoing would result in prosecution under Lyran laws.[31]

Military Deployment[edit]
