Discovered late in the 25th century, the remote system was home to the Messers' most notorious prisons. Shortly after the fall of the Messers, when declassified data of the atrocities committed in the system came to light, the Governors Council of Charon III officially renounced their recognition by the UEE, becoming the first and only planet to do so. Since then, the planet has been in a near constant state of turmoil as various factions have battled for political and social dominance.

Planets

Charon I

Astrophysicists hypothesize that a collision knocked this small terrestrial planet into a decaying orbit to be slowly consumed by its star.

Charon II

Thanks to a thick, rolling atmosphere of carbon monoxide, the surface temperature is so extreme on Charon II that all attempts to terraform have failed.

Charon III

Terraformed by the dawn of the 26th century, this temperate planet is home to the Phyi Tower, considered one of the masterworks of Supermodernist architecture. The planet is currently locked in a bitter civil war between the states of Dellin and Acheron.

Charon IV

A large ice giant on the far side of the Gedinasho Asteroid Belt, Charon IV is a swirling ball of methane and ammonia. This vast and cold planet inspired the name of the system.

Charon V

A small world drifting on the fringe of the system. Planetary surveyors have never found anything on scans to justify landing there.

Asteroid Belts

The Charon system contains one asteroid belt. The Gedinasho Belt is located between the planets Charon III and Charon IV.
