Pembroke is a star system in the Enigma Sector. It is a territory of the Terran Confederation.

Pembroke is a vital territory of the Terran Confederation due its highly-prized jump nexus between the the Enigma and Vega Sectors. If the Kilrathi Empire were to acquire control of this star system, they could pass through the Enigma Sector largely unopposed, and would be able to take advantage of the sector's vast jump network. This nexus is guarded by Pembroke Station.

In 2667, the Terran Confederation destroyed the Kilrathi Sector Command at K'tithrak Mang, effectively liberating the Enigma Sector. However, the Kilrathi were determined to maintain control of the sector, and sought to control Pembroke so that they may renew their presence within the sector's many star systems. Confed sent the TCS Concordia to counter this potential threat.

Upon arrival, Confed conducted numerous patrols in the system, only to discover that the Kilrathi presence in the system was stronger than anticipated. After several days of fighting, the Kilrathi launched a major assault on Pembroke Station, forcing Confed to scramble to its defense. Fortunately, they were successful in repelling the assault and Pembroke remained in Terran control.
