Description:

Fletcher's dense atmosphere and constant cloud cover keep it damp and chilly. The Terran Hegemony established several arms factories on Fletcher, including StarCorp Industries, Caletra Fighters, Yelm Weapons, and Flame Tech. These companies produced the Highlander BattleMech, the Swift fighter, the Nightshade VTOL, and various laser and flamer systems. Although part of the Terran Hegemony, Fletcher became the burial ground of Aleisha Liao, a Capellan Chancellor still famous today as the author the Ares Conventions. The Hegemony insisted on burying Aleisha in Hegemony soil for her contributions to civilizing warfare.

Since her death, other Capellan Chancellors have chosen burial on Fletcher. House Liao quickly claimed Fletcher after the fall of the First Star League. However, with the exception of Flame Tech, House Liao lost Fletcher's factories to battle damage inflicted during the First Succession War, and Fletcher became little more than a self-sufficient funeral world. Fletcher stayed under the Capellan flag until the Fourth Succession War, when it was briefly part of the Tikonov Free Republic before reverting to Federated Suns control. In the events leading up to the Federated Commonwealth Civil War, Fletcher descended into anarchy along with many neighboring worlds in the so-called Chaos March.

Fletcher only has a single supercontinent, Hamilton, whose capital is Royce.
