Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

The database of the (apocryphal) 1989 video game MechWarrior, set around the year 3025, gives a population of 1.506 billion for Timbiqui and describes the environment as "desert" (out of only three broad impressions of planetary environments given in the game, these being "desert", "ice", or "tropical"). The description one-liner reads "Manufacturing center rich in minerals."

Planetary History[edit]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

The Free Worlds League conquered Timbiqui in October 3028, one of several systems captured during Operation DAGGER, the Free Worlds League Military Fourth Succession War offensive against the Lyran Commonwealth. Lacking a BattleMech regiment with which to mount a defense, Timbiqui was easily captured.[1]

The Jihad[edit]

Following the invasion of the Free Worlds League by the Skye and Bolan Provinces of the Lyran Alliance in what was termed Operation ÜBERSCHATTEN, Marshall Jeremy Brett took command of the local FWLM and launched a counteroffensive, under the name Operation BROKEN FIST. BROKEN FIST went beyond simply attempting to recapture worlds that the Lyrans had seized, striking into Lyran space at numerous worlds. Timbiqui was one of the worlds hit and was attacked by the League forces on the 3rd of September 3068.[2]

Timbiqui came under fire from a portion of the Knights of the Inner Sphere and the First Fusiliers of Oriente. The planetary militia held off the Knight's arrival, forcing the elite Marik unit to retreat less than a week later. The Fusiliers of Oriente were holed up in the remains of a Ninnimaki Steel foundry, cut off from their DropShips. They were finally able to evacuate the planet though.[3]
