Description:

Explorers from St. Andre first discovered Shipka almost by accident. The exploration ship Mighty Munchin's navigator targeted the wrong star. Believing they were jumping to Highspire, they ended up in a system that had never been explored. After discovering the mistake, they immediately began exploring the system and discovered that the fifth planet was rich in resources and water. They named the planet after the Captain, Jonathan Shipka, when they filed the claim for the planet.

Shipka's location made it a perfect way station trading port for the numerous worlds surrounding the system. The population exploded, with farmers, traders, crafters, and merchants looking to turn a fast profit. So diverse was the population coming to this new world that they named the capital Shipka Commune. This city is located on the southwestern coast of Cambridge, the largest of the planet's three continents.

Cambridge itself produces agricultural products and minerals in addition to having the largest DropPort on the planet. Hillsborough and Foxborough are almost identical. Where Cambridge is located in northern hemisphere, both Hillsborough and Foxborough are in the southern hemisphere. Hillsborough produces petroleum and precious metals. Foxborough produces timber and agricultural produce, as well as coal and shale. During the Fourth Succession War, Shipka fell to Davion forces. During the Davion occupation, Shipka continued to serve as it had while a Capellan world. When the Sarna March collapsed, the people of Shipka did not hesitate to return to their former home, throwing off the Davion yoke.
