Point of Interest: Ancients Site[edit]

An Ancients site was discovered on Efate in 354, though it had been robbed of all useful artifacts. Today the site is used as a historic monument maintained by the IISS. The site consists of a partially restored grid of walls spaced about two meters apart and extremely massive fortifications at random intervals.

Historical Data[edit]

In the run-up to the Fifth Frontier War Efate was subject to bitter anti-Imperial guerrilla activity, supported by the Zhodani.

  • On 204-1107, as part of the opening of the war, Efate faced a Zhodani siege, followed by heavy planetary fighting.
  • The Siege of Efate proved one of the crucial campaigns of the entire war.

Other Data[edit]

Non-canon: Efate has been settled almost as long as Regina and has always been its rival for the position as most important system in the Regina Cluster. It passed Regina in population long ago and its technology is also better (space technology is up to Imperial standards), but political considerations still keep it in second place. In the last decade, civil disturbances have contributed to this; the Imperium has been forced to introduce martial law and the system is currently governed by the Imperial Navy.
