Repleetah is a star system in the Enigma Sector. It is located on the outermost fringes of the Terran Confederation.

Repleetah is a backwater system with only a minimal population, and therefore held no strategic value in the Terran-Kilrathi War. It is home to at least one planet, Repleetah. This planet is mostly barren and supports very little life, but prior to the war it served as a research center for Terran scientists.

Repleetah became embroiled in one of the bloodiest battles of the war in 2653. By this point in time, Repleetah hosted scientists from both the Terran Confederation and the Kilrathi Empire, who agreed to maintain the mutual peace between the two sides in the name of research. However, the Kilrathi violated this truce by launching a biological attack that killed most of the Terran scientists. In a retaliatory strike, Confed sent ground forces to liberate the planet, thus the Battle of Repleetah began.

The battle lasted on Repleetah for ten years before it finally ended in 2663. During this year, only a few Terran and Kilrathi soldiers were left on the surface, and in a last-ditch effort to conquer the planet, the two sides attacked each other. No one survived the battle on either side, finally ending the battle in a stalemate. The failed efforts of either faction to conquer Repleetah suggests that the planet is under neither faction's direct control as of 2663.
