Edit: This is a reformatted version of the same thread on the earlier, now lost, CBT forum. I have separated the intro posting (this one) from the list of found/identified worlds (second post) and the list of still unidentified worlds (third post).
Following community input, I'll keep the lists updated in the second and third posts. Thus, a search for a given name should immediately jump to its entry in either list.

The purpose of this project is to list all worlds (systems or individual planets) mentioned within the BT universe that remain elusive on the hitherto published maps, and to collect information on these worlds with hopes to pinpoint their location (in some cases, find them on recently published maps).

For the purpose of this project I consider a world/planet "unmapped, lost or misnamed" if it is mentioned in an official (not necessarily canonical) BattleTech product but shows up on no known map that would allow its jump coordinates to be pinpointed.

Formatting of the lists: Planet/system name (Source), known info, references

Color code:
Blue = Location mapped/identified, or already known under another name
Green = Location identified fairly well, but not precisely
Orange = Location estimated broadly
Red = Location unknown
Black = Uncertain if a planet or system of this name even exists (typos, mixups, etc.)

Underlined = Known world/system, cited for reference
Italicized = Reference to another unmapped system on this list
[In brackets] = Source is apocryphal (i.e. official but not included among the current canon sources)

- Megaris (map in Handbook Davion p49; Periphery Sourcebook p17), TC world in Flannagan's Nebula, settled in 2310

- Veil (MW3: Pirate Moon computer game; ISP2; map on German boxed set), was once called Oporto - see post #5
- Weissau, misspelling of DC system Weisau (apocryphal BattleTechnology "Worldbook" article names the world in the Weisau system "Brimstone")


The following worlds were removed from the project:
- Leisten: Meant to be Leiston in the DC. Not sure where/why this typo'ed spelling crept up.
- Riesling's Planet / Reisling's Planet: Apparently, the Black Widow Company took a detour through Davion space when attacking Hesperus II from Marik space. Doesn't seem to make sense, but is in line with the notion that the Dragoons deliberately tried to conceal the true target while moving. In any case, there's apparently only one such world and the correct name is "Reisling's Planet".
- Tabiranth: The original Marik Housebook has indexed "Tabiranth (world)" for page 39, where someone is portrayed as having political acumen like a "Tabiranth trader". Considering that the Tabiranth is a well-known type of xeno-cattle from a lost world (Jardine), I tend to assume that this mention is due to one of two possible mistakes: Either the reference was to the Tabrianth's lost unnamed homeworld (now known to be Jardine, formerly known as Herakleion), or the reference itself misinterpreted the "Tabiranth trader" as a trader from Tabiranth instead of a trader of Tabiranths. The latter is a more likely explanation, considering that Tabiranths are popular throughout the Inner Sphere and were exported by specialized breeding enterprises.

The planet (or a place on the planet) is called Coursardin; in the novel Wolves on the Border there is a reference to a Dragoon operation involving the Black Widows at Courasin which likely refers to this same location. Conjecture indicates a FS place on DC border.

- Tellmann (Mechwarrior 1 p101), CC world
- Terrelibre (ISP2, ComStar), ComGuard shipyard after WoB schism. Faslane class built here. Aka Ross 248
- Teukros (HB:Marik p139, HB:Steiner p76, 98), LC world near FWL border. Thomas Marik served at ComStar relay station here in 3025. Mentioned as "distant world" (from Loric) along with Poulsbo, Denebola V and Bobruisk. As of 3030 Thomas Marik is confirmed stationed on Son Hoa; Teukros could be a planet in that system.
- Thera (Mercenaries Handbook p70, 1st column, 3rd paragraph), FWL world
- Thomas (HB:Liao p86, 90, 99; TRO3039 Quickdraw), agricultural CC world near Purvo, tactically insignificant, not even included on many star charts, few resources to plunder, planetary militia with a reputation for dogged tenacity, Pavel Ridzik (Duke of Thomas) had estates here. Location of a 3011 battle between the Sirdar Capellan March Militia and St. Cyr’s Grenadiers, who were using Thomas’s north continent for training maneuvers. 3011 battle between the Liao Reserves (Trimaldi's Secutors) and the 42nd Avalon Hussars on Thomas where a Davion siege was broken by troops led by Pavel Ridzik, and yet another battle in 3011 where Ridzik led Stapleton's Iron Hand of the St.Ives Armoured Cavalry against the 33rd Avalon Hussars. Update: Øystein canonically confirmed that it is a secondary world in another CC system, thought it remains unknown which system
- Tianjin (Rolling Thunder p27), periphery world and pirate base apparently outside FWL space
- [Tibolt] (Blackthorne Battleforce 1+2), CC mining world on the FS border, "somewhere outside the CC border in the periphery"; "A tiny worthless rock [...] with an atmosphere of sulphur, fog, and rain". Invaded by Miller's Marauders (working for FS) and elements of the 2nd Crucis Lancers in 3015 or 3025, defended by Capellan Hussars and 3rd MAC regiment. Holds a 'Mech cache and something unspecified deemed yet more important. Hypotized that this became the MoC's mysterious source of 'Mechs and goodies. Implied to lie in TC or MoC terrain, outside CC territory. Not to be mistaken for Tybalt.
- Travis V (TRO3025, Stalker; Life in the Big City), implied to lie in DC space near the FS border (possibly near Pike IV and Rahway II)
- Trentwash II (ISP2 p19, ComStar p45), within "eight to ten jumps from the Lyran-Combine border regions", "beyond the Elysian Fields", struggling RWR colony out of contact with IS for 300 years in 2973
- Trimerrion (The Sword and the Dagger p156)
- Trisha (ComStar, ISP2), where ComGuards fought the final battle against pirate forces concluding the Jolly Roger Affair. Located within "eight to ten jumps from the Lyran-Combine border regions"
- Tsanna X (HB:Liao, Mercenary's Handbook p93, TRO3025), world on the FS/CC border where WH Ijori mauled FS forces in 3003. Not to be mistaken for Tsamma on the FS/DC border. Mentioned as "Tsanna X" in MercHB.
- Tsarina (Mercenary's Handbook p93), FS/CC border world
- Tumbleweed (HB:MPS p5) Agricultural deep periphery colony, home of Temper MacCaulay. Came under attack by Tortuga pirates
- Twilight (Jade Falcon sourcebook), a buddhist monk colony two jumps outside of the Oberon Confederation
- Ulro (HB:Steiner p98), CF world
- Urgenj (see Herat)
- [Valhalla VI] (TCI Model Set #1), no info
- Vincent (The Sword and the Dagger p45)
- [Vogon] (Wiege der Basilisken, p. 56) - System in the Lyran Protectorate of Donegal, within one jump from Dukambia towards Mahone. May be fictional with the BT universe.
- Wayside V (Impetus of War, Highlanders sourcebook), planet also known as Wildcat, abandoned Clan (Smoke Jaguar or Nova Cat) depot in the deep periphery, in HPG range (i.e. within 50 lightyears) from Tarnby
- Wildcat (see Wayside V)


Unmapped worlds without a name:

- Unnamed world beyond Antallos/Port Krin, spinward of the Inner Sphere in the Deep Periphery; arrival in orbit 49 days after making inquiries at Port Krin so presumably 2-3 jumps. Germanium deposits make the jungle world very valuable. Was colonized by House Kurita "hundreds of years ago" but repeatedly captured by Davion ("changes hands every few decades"). "Apocalypse Now"ish scenario in First Strike sourcebook hunting for ex-Davion general "The Old Man", unfortunately no dates, names or locations given (AFFC operation so FedCom timeframe). Remote possibility this is Farstar.

- Abandoned world near Antallos/Port Krin, former OA world abandoned "long ago" after repeated FS attacks. Has two moons. Blasted remains of village used as a meeting point by dodgy dealers in 3057. (Royalty & Rogues, p. 16)

- Unnamed world 15 ly coreward from DC cache world Durham, where a fugitive merc unit found a crashed Star League DropShip and recovered a number of BattleMechs. Durham is also within 7 ly from Isfahan, where the raiders set up their base. Since the pirates originally fled from the LC the worlds are presumably coreward of the DC, closer to the LC border.

The Explorer Corps sourcebook has a map on p48 with a large number of minor settlements in the coreward Deep Periphery. However, since they appear for the first time in this book (as far as I am aware) and come with a map showing their exact location I have not included them in the list. Namely, these are:

- Attenbrooks (Diamond Shark orbital fleet base and trading post)
- Bazaar (Diamond Shark surface trading post)
- Cambridge (Cambridge Perimeter Defense Station, Jade Falcon orbital fleet base at nadir jump point)
- Ctesiphon (Nova Cat surface cargo way station)
- Harris (Wolf surface garrison)
- Ghent (Smoke Jaguar garrison)
- Gwithian (occupied colony, Nova Cat garrison)
- Kinbrace (Steel Viper surface cargo station)
- Nouveaux Paris (colony occupied by Smoke Jaguars)
- Ramsey (Steel Viper surface cargo station/garrison)
- Santiago IV (Jade Falcon garrison)
- Salonika (Nova Cat fleet base at nadir jump point)
- St. Jean (reclusive Franciskan monk colony occupied, Jade Falcon surface cargo storage)
- Suda Bay (Smoke Jaguar fleet base at nadir jump point)
- Transfer Facility 4, aka TF4 (Smoke Jaguar surface cargo way station)
- Transfer Station P3 (Wolf cargo way station at zenith jump point)
- Transfer Station P9 (Wolf orbital cargo way station and fleet base)
- Transfer TJ239H2 (orbital Jade Falcon cargo transfer facility)
- Trelleborg (Ghost Bear fleet base at nadir jump point)
- Trinity (Jade Falcon surface garrison and cargo storage facility)
- Wark (Steel Viper garrison)
- Wolf Orbital 82 (Wolf fleet base at zenith jump point)


Generally interesting information:

- The HB:Liao states the CC as of 3025 has 217 systems with an average of two populated worlds in them (426 worlds in the 217 systems); similarly, the Duchy of Fenestere mentioned in HB:Davion (FS?) encompasses 18 planets in (only) 5 systems.

- The HB:Steiner states that the LC spans "over 300 planets" (likely meaning "systems" from the context). It goes on to say that "for every inhabited planet, at least five to ten others are either uninhabited, inhospitable, or with populations too small or private to be recognized".

Some useful comments carried over from the old forum thread:

Quote from: Orthuberra
One of things I came across while doing my RWR atlas in the Periphery section was that a few of those worlds were renamed. A quick example is The Rack and Pain went by different names during the RWR/SL era. A better example is the world of Winfield now in the Jade Falcon OZ, was originally called Treeline. It changed its name because some important family started some electronics plant there (I think thats what it was). But I had to do some digging online and in sourcebooks to figure out they were the same world, only renamed.

So just a suggestion, a few of these may have merely changed there names, but the reference may hard to find (if any).

Another example I just remembered Carver V changing its name to Liberty.

Quote from: roosterboy
If you compare the 2822 Lyran Commonwealth map with a modern map, you can see that The Rack and Pain used to be called Port Vail and Dijonne, respectively, and were indeed members of the RWR. (And Dijonne was apparently settled some time between 2571 and 2822, since it doesn't appear onn the former map. Which, technically, I guess, means it could have actually been settled after the fall of the RWR.)

Quote from: Highball
Quote from: silentwarrior
ISP2 p.19
Veil is on the 3067map from my german introductory box set.
If you align this with the map from the House Steiner Handbook (pg 36) it shows the world Veil was once called Oporto.

Quote from: roosterboy
Zlatous would be a typo for Zlatousi. It and Kazarka have long appeared on the map, just inside the Combine's border with the Outworlds Alliance.
Quote from: GreenDragon
So Kazarka is a typo for Kazanka?  (They are in the Tabayama Prefecture btw).
Yeah. The same world shows up on multiple maps spelled either Kazanka or Kazarka.

Quote from: roosterboy
Quote from: Jaim_Magnus
If you look at the 3130 map, Kerensky's Vision is in the lower part of the Wolf OZ.  Up and slightly to the right of Arcturus.
It's in the exact location that Qualip occupies on 3SW and earlier maps in HBHS. The Wolves resettled an abandoned/dead world for their new colony.

Quote from: Jayman27
I wonder if Tsarina and Tsanna are one and the same.  Over the years there have been quite a few misspellings in the Battletech literature.  Many of these misspellings seem to be in regards to planet names where letters could look as if they could be spelled two different ways.  Take Chamdo/Charndo for instance.  In the original House Liao sourcebook, the planet appears as Chamdo on the map, but on the list of planets it is listed as Charndo.  If you'll notice, "rn" looks a lot like "m."  There was obviously an editorial mistake somewhere along the line that listed this planet as Charndo, as future books seem to only use Chamdo.  I think Tsanna and Tsarina could be another one of these examples.  In my estimation, "nn" could possibly be mistaken for "rin."  Could Tsarina be a misprint that was meant to be Tsanna instead.

Trentwash II

"beyond the Elysian Field" -- is the exact quote.

a Rim Worlds colony, founded by Cynthia Amaris.

the Explorer Corps group that re-found this world were attacked by a group of locals with "antique weapons of vintage precision". the Corps group lost 17 out of 20 -- in retaliation, the senior Adept turned the DropShip's weapons on the attackers and the Star League-era city they came from.

heavy paraphrasing of "exerpt from ROM investigation of report by Adept Antonian Nokaj, Explorer Corps Vessel Divine Providence, regarding incident on Trentwash II (Beyond the Elysian Field), November 2973"

ComStar Sourcebook, page 45...

- Isfahan (Explorer Corps pg100), 7 light-years from Durham; conjectural information places it in the deep periphery coreward of the DC
There's additional information about the world in XTRO: Pirates. It has only one major settlement, Kerman, and by 3067 it is occupied by a lesser pirate king known as Hakim al-Shahab, former member of Vance Rezak's Band of the Damned. It seems he still controlls the world as of 3077.

You know I'm shocked that no one has mentioned Federated Suns' Arcadia yet.

"Sometimes, it is hard for social historians to judge the causes and effects of change. On Arcadia, another
'garden world' of the Crucis March, peace and prosperity were the watchwords even in the worst years of the Terran retreat from her former colonies. The planet’s plentiful water, extensive agriculture, abundant raw materials, and
booming industrial economy made Arcadia the logical heart of the new Federated Suns
."

House Davion Sourcebook PDF, page 22.

The Svendotters were a key family from Arcadia. Paul Davion married Marge Svendotter that produced Simon Davion.

House Davion Sourcebook PDF, page 30.

As for where Arcadia was located, it only appears on the map of the Federated Suns at founding on page 18 in the House Davion Handbook. It's about a jump away from New Avalon.

As for its fate, I have no idea, but since it was so close to New Avalon, it probably got destroyed in the First Succession War.

It's a jump away from New Avalon, but at the same time, it's a bit of a know commodity. It's not like the Suns is really going to forget the location of one of its leading early member planets.

Arcadia is one jump from New Avalon.

Where did the DCMS offensive in 1st Succession War reach? One jump from New Avalon.

draw your own conclusions...

Great to see this very excellent thread back.  Here's a quirky one from the original TR3025 (p. 186):

"John [Cassion] is currently working for the New Battle Creek Defense League on the planet Kearny within the Federated Suns.... His quick action once saved the life of Dr. Banzai of Team Banzai."

There is indeed a Kearny on the maps -- but it's deep in the FWL, not the FS.  I would chalk the "Federated Suns" reference up to a typo, but the reference to Dr. Banzai seems to militate against that.  A quick review revealed no Kearny on the FS historical maps.

While I'm at it, p. 184 also has a reference to the Davion planet of Quinten -- very probably a typo for Quentin, but the references to the cities Troy and Birmingham do not correspond to any known features of Quentin.  (Perhaps it was colonized by Alabamans.)

p. 170 references an attack by Kurita forces on the Davion planet of Hoan III.  Could be a typo for "Hean", which the IS Atlas indicates is the third planet in its system.

Some new additions:

Haddings (the hidden WoB training world from BC story Desperate Measures)

Also from the German-only (and thus apocryphal) novel Die Albatros-Akte:
- El Aïdi and Muscatine, two Lyran colonies in the Protectorate of Donegal that were abandoned in or just prior to 2838
- Kumkol VII, a research station also in the Protectorate of Donegal
- Orathon, an uninhabited system in the Protectorate of Donegal used as a recharging system between Ludwigshafen and Mahone

Haddings --

was a Lyran/Terran/Lyran world, in/near the Isle of Skye -- in a line roughly between Alioth and Muphrid, and Mizar and Lipton...

in HB: Steiner -- it was on the 2571, 2822, and 2864 maps, disappears by the 3025 map...

still looking for the others, and CVB's addition....

Time for some updates.
With the publication of Field Report: Periphery, the Wanted list has grown a bit shorter as all Hanseatic League and Nueva Castile/Umayyad worlds are now pegged on an official map.

Also, thanks to The Hawk for adding Hoan III/Hean (have asked Oystein about this), Quinten and Kearny (FS) to the list, and to CVB for Rahway II (don't know how I missed that one - good catch!).

1) We can also list the content of the Chainelaine Isles (I have a hypothesis as to which former RWR worlds may be included in the Isles)
2) Farhome (Periphery 2nd Edition)
3) Etienne's Sanctuary

I now count 3107 named systems, of which 3002 of them show up in maps. gonna be a headache identifying/eliminating the 105.

well i overlapped the 2750 RWR map with the deep periphery map from WoR, using the 3067 LC map as anchor and i identified 6 worlds the neatly fell inside the borders of the Isles. In fact two of those 2750 maps appeared to influence the shape of the borders. As i said, it's just a theory based on the methodology above.
As an alternative we can list "Chainelaine Isles" as an entry

Hmm.  Well, my view is that they're not "unmapped" or "lost" if they're identifiable, but it's Frabby's list. ;)  I would be interested to know what you found, though.  Going from the Explorer Corps map (don't have WoR yet) I'm guessing Vannes, Fredotto, Syrstart, Far Reach, Paran and Tordenskjold?

(As an aside, apparently I've never looked that closely at this part of the RWR 2750 map.  Paran?  Apsalar?  Seems like somebody was reading The Malazan Book of the Fallen when they put that one together...  ::))

EDIT: Of course, I also just noticed "Malazan" on the Bolan Thumb on the same map, so now I'm even more convinced of that conclusion... ;)

hah right on the money! Those were the six ones that neatly fell in the silhouette of the Isles. I'm guessing some (or all) of them form part of the Isles and then there are some newly discovered worlds that make up the rest. I just can't remember how many worlds there are exactly. I hope we get to see them someday like the Hanseatic League and Nueva Castile/Escorpion Imperio.
It's kinda sad that we don't get to see the Isles and the JarnFolk worlds in the published IS maps despite the proximity. When i overlapped the maps it was possible to show those two factions' borders in the page.

EDIT: HAHA! thanks Oystein for a wish fulfilled! Chainelane Isles finally appear on the full IS map! well, we got 5 of the 6 systems right at least. Now I hope we get to see the JarnFolk on future maps near Alfirk  :)) then one with the Clan Worlds and far periphery systems
