Lau Lawinson - "We lost the whole damn colony..."

Shackleton is a star system situated in Terran space. It is a relatively new addition to the Terran territories, set on the outer edge of Assembly space. It has been the victim of Reaver raids as of the beginning of events in Conflagration.


Named for the noted Terran explorer Ernest Shackleton, the system has only recently seen the establishment of viable colonies on Grytviken and Erebus. Most of the planets in the system are ice planets, hence the Terrans interest in developing it as a potential fuel resource.

Notable locations

  • Erebus (planet)
  • Grytviken (planet, system capital)
