Another point on the border with the Xi'An, 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. Since tensions with the Xi'An have diminished and the military presence has retracted, Kiel has struggled to redefine itself as a non-military system.

Planets

Kiel I

A small mesoplanet in a tidally-locked orbit around the star.

Kiel II

A vacant rocky planet with a thin atmosphere. Even though it's unsuitable for terraforming, the UEE has prohibited corporations from mining the planet.

Severus : Kiel III

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.

Kiel IV

This strikingly blue subgiant has an incredibly fast rotation, taking only 16 SEH to make a rotation.

Kiel V

A large gas giant composed mostly of hydrogen and helium.

Kiel VI

This tiny protoplanet has an incredibly long orbital period around the star.

Asteroid Belts

The Kiel system contains one asteroid belt. Belt Alpha is located between the orbits of Severus and Kiel IV
