└─ Orbiting Oso (star)
The third planet in the Oso system is a gas giant. Oso III began life as a rogue Jupiter that fell into rotation around the system's star. The planet is distinguished by slight green and white color variations generated by its silicate clouds. From a scientific standpoint, Oso III would be largely uninteresting save for its proximity to Oso II. As such, it's frequently cited as evidence to support the theory that gas giants can act as 'comet shields' which allow higher forms of life to evolve. Unmanned scientific monitoring stations are positioned at the planet's Lagrange points to track and catalog meteor impacts.
