Calliope is a moon orbiting microTech. It is named after the ancient Greek muse who inspires eloquence to supposedly remind those gazing upon the moon from microTech to 'strive for pure expression of thought.'

Beset by high winds and low temperatures, Calliope becomes so cold at night that even exceptionally insulated weather suits can fail. The dark side of this moon is a dangerous one, even to the most experienced adventurer. Low clouds and ground fog regularly reduce surface visibility to a minimum.[1]
