The Kiel system is a border system (former Perry Line system) to the Xi'an territory. It was discovered by a merchant marine ship in 2514 and named after a friend of the captain of this merchant ship.
Kiel's primary use was the serve as a staging area for military forces during the cold war. Out of the system's six planets only Severus (Kiel III) was terraformed to act as the military's center of operations.
It was also massively fortified and the Messer Regime pumped a lot of money into the system.
Since tensions with the Xi’an have diminished and the military presence has completly retracted, Kiel has struggled to redefine itself as a non-military system.
Kiel is a Main Sequence Dwarf-F star.
A small mesoplanet in a tidally-locked orbit around the star.
A terraformed terrestrial planet that served as the hub of operations for the system, though the planet's military status was downgraded when tensions were eased after the Messer Era. Severus had difficulty attracting settlers and businesses to this formerly fortified system, but has been enjoying a recent population boom thanks to the recent Imperial recognition. Eri City hosted the 2946 Intergalactic Aerospace Expo.
This strikingly blue subgiant has an incredibly fast rotation, taking only 16 SEH to make a rotation.
A large gas giant composed mostly of hydrogen and helium, surrounded by planetary rings.
This tiny protoplanet has an incredibly long orbital period around the star.
The Kiel system contains one asteroid belt. Belt Alpha is located between the orbits of Severus and Kiel IV
