Nusakan is a dim little world. Its one valuable resource is its abundance of high-grade silicon. Nusakan became a
center of computer technology during the Star League era. Jobs City, the capital of Nusakan, was the
headquarters of Interstellar Business Computers and Pottor Light Computers. The Terran Hegemony heavily
defended the planet with the SDS system, three Castles Brian, and twice the normal number of military bases and

During the Amaris coup, Nusakan was the scene of heavy fighting. Republican troops ambushed SLDF units
stationed there inside two of the Castles Brian. Present-day legends say that the fighting deep within the two forts
continued for weeks, causing the land of nearby towns to shake with the underground explosions. The third base,
Fort Romas, held out for a year before its was eliminated with a nuclear bomb.

When General Kerensky's forces came to liberate the planet from the republican forces, the SDS destroyed
many Star League warships. Two of them, the cruiser SLS Havana and the destroyer SLS Dularam, spent their
final moments plummeting through Nusakan's atmosphere. The wreckage of the two ships can still be seen.

The Castles Brian and the wrecks of their warships have yielded many useful artifacts. Unfortunately, the
computer industry, which had been so large and vital, was razed by Amaris forces. Nothing has been found in the
ashes of the factories.

[3132] High-grade silicon and other minerals valuable to the electronics industry made the dim, cool world of
Nusakan a natural center for the computer and electronics trades, despite its low water supply and the
inhospitality of its northern and southern tundra. By the time of the Star League, this planet, jointly administered
by the Lyran Commonwealth and the Terran Hegemony, was a heavily industrialized world, with such major
corporations as Interstellar Business Computers and Pottor Light Computers claiming headquarters in the heart of
its sprawling cities. Three Castles Brian were erected on the surface, along with twice as many military bases and
spaceports, to secure these important assets against any aggressor.

Unfortunately, the SLDF troops stationed on Nusakan during the Amaris Crisis did not reckon on an attack from
within, though they fought hard and long, denying the Usurper's troops an easy victory. Two of the major
fortifications, at Holden City and the planetary capital of Jobs City, both on the northern Katamoros continent,
were destroyed after weeks of underground fighting that shook the nearby cities and towns. The third, however,
at Fort Romas, held out for almost a year, becoming a rally point for the surviving SLDF troops as fighting spread
across the planet. Though gallant, this resistance ultimately forced Amaris's troops to resort to nuclear assaults to
secure Nusakan, destroying not only Fort Romas, but also a large number of the planet's more heavily populated
cities and industriplexes. In the Liberation, Nusakan was again pummeled as returning SLDF forces faced a
pitched battle in orbit and on the ground. Two WarShips, the SLS Havana and the SLS Dularam, lie in ruin
where they crashed on the northern continent, shot down by the planetary defense systems during the fighting.

By the time of the Star League's collapse, only twenty thousand or so people still lived on this battle-scarred
planet, but since that time, and despite the predations of the Succession Wars, people and businesses have
gradually returned to Nusakan. Cities have grown near both shipwrecks, named in honor of each one, and the
city of Havana, in fact, is the present-day capital of this recovering world. Fortunately for Nusakan, the Word of
Blake found other targets more pressing during the Jihad so they never came to cause further damage, and the
planet was largely overlooked during the fighting.

Today, Nusakan is home to a thriving population and reborn computer and electronics industries. Lenzo
Computing Industries, one of the biggest computer manufacturers to develop in the post-Jihad era, has
headquarters in Dularam City. Though widely known as a major producer of personal computers, LCI is
currently in the middle of a massive diversification that could transform it into one of the biggest manufacturing
corporations in the Inner Sphere, and it has already added military-grade electronics, including BattleMech and
DropShip sensor gear, to its impressive list of quality products.

Nusakan was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic.  Nusakan became part of
Prefecture IX under the control of The Republic.  After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Nusakan was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Nusakan joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
