Founded by the defunct Commonwealth Mining Corporation, which collapsed amid scandal during the Second Succession War, Gulf Breeze was originally known simply as Commonwealth Mining Outpost 26 (C.M.O. 26). Its focus was a large, lifeless, tide-locked rock laced with titanium, platinum and countless other minerals ripe for industrial use.
Domed settlements on the night side of the planet formed the heart of this corporate mining colony, but to take advantage of valuable ores found in the outer planets, moons and asteroid fields, several spaceborne habitats were also established, including the eventual system capital of Gulf Breeze Station, an ancient Star League-era facility massing 930,000 tons and capable of sustaining a population of 50,000 military and civilian personnel.
Gulf Breeze Station became the major waypoint for all in-system travel after the collapse of CMC, when local mining colony leaders elected to remain in the system and eke out a living on their own. Eventually taking the name of their capital facility as the name for their star system, these intrepid miners continue to plumb the depths of their worlds and asteroids for riches they now trade to keep their thriving colonies well fed and well fueled.
 A particularly daring pirate band attempted to seize a cargo shipment from the Nashan warehouses located on the Gulf Breeze space habitat in 3060. Fortuitously, the Basilisk Assault Squadron was on hand, overseeing the transfer of other cargo. A swirling melee of DropShips and AeroSpace fighters ensued, and in the confusion the raiders succeeded in landing BattleMechs on Gulf Breezes’ massive hull.
In response, Rear Admiral Beatty ordered his own BattleMech forces into the fray. Chimera Company’s ’Mechs held off the raiders long enough for the Basilisk squadron to repulse the raider DropShips, cutting off the bandits’ escape. Choosing death to surrender, the surviving raider MechWarriors ejected rather than be captured. Neither the identity of the raiders nor the specifics of the cargo they were so intent on taking has been determined.
