Planetary History[edit]

In January 3056 it was the site of two minor actions for control of the Station; first captured by the ComStar Explorer Corps force Meredith's Marauders and then quickly re-taken by a Jaguar relief force. A minor naval engagement took place at the same time as two Union-C DropShips with fighter escorts crippled and boarded the Marauder's JumpShip.[3]

Notes[edit]

Pivot system was a very important one for the clans, at least for the clan naval personnel: When they cross the system, they celebrated it drinking alcohol, making himself a tattoo of a Cameron Star. The technicians follow the same tradition.[4]
