Example of a system (Stanton)

Star systems, usually simply referred to as 'systems', are gravitationally bound collections of orbitally organized planets, planetoids and asteroids around a governing star or group of stars. The gravitational stress of the central objects allows the formation of Jump Points between systems, which allow near-instantaneous interstellar travel. Systems contain the most important locations in the galaxy; from homeworlds to military outposts.

The vast majority of systems have a large star, black hole, or other massive object around which the other stellar objects orbit.

Travel and Exploration

The only viable inter-system travel means is represented by jump points, which are hyper-stable wormholes that form between two neighboring massive gravity wells, such as those of stars, black holes, etc. However, the stability of jump points can be decreased by the presence of other significant substellar gravity wells, such as those of gas giants (ex: Jupiter, Saturn, etc.) and their satellite systems, which interfere with the space-time fabric.

For intra-system travel, a ship would use its quantum drive, which allows for velocities nearing or slightly exceeding 20% of the speed of light and consuming quantum fuel to do so.

Notable systems

United Empire of Earth

Other sovereign empires

Rihlah System
  • Rihlah: Xi'An military staging area converted to industrial and tourist world.
  • Orion: Site of the violent first contact with the Vanduul. Abandoned due to their frequent attacks on the human outposts.
  • Bacchus: Possible location of Banu homeworld and popular trading destination for UEE haulers.


Common Terms

Astronomical Unit (AU)
Roughly the distance from Earth to its orbital body, Sol. Used as a measurement for other in-system distance measurements. The actual value, in kilometers, of an AU is subject to change.
Asteroid Belt
A ring or cloud of rocky planetoids. Often mined for raw resources or used as a construction platform
Binary System 
System characterized by a "binary" set of two orbiting stars around which the other objects orbit
Homeworld 
The premier evolution site of a sapient species. : The birthplanet of a certain individual.
Jump Point 
Naturally occurring wormhole used for near-instant travel between systems
Space Station 
Artificial base built as a platform for military, research, or other purposes in space. Often in orbit around planets or built into asteroids
