The Chimera System is undoubtedly humanity's most fruitful find as it expands out into the universe. It contins two habitable planets and two further habitable moons. It was also the site of the first and largest armed engagement between spacebound forces, the Battle of New Ukraine.


After the system was codenamed "Chimera" by NASA in the late 20th Century, the planets were given simple shorthand numbers instead of names, C1 through C6. Habitable bodies were given the designation 'I', and moons a second number. Thus Bellerophon, the 5th planet in the system, was C5, and the two moons, later re-named Victoria and Gettysburg were C5MI1 and C5MI2. Arminius was not originally classed as habitable, because the Arcology Housing had not yet been developed.

After settlement, the names form the Iliad were appended to all unnamed planets by the German surveyors who had come on the Seevogel to Neuostland.

Planets in the Chimera System

Sisyphus (C1)

A barren and tiny ball of pitted rock, Glaucus' erratic orbit and proximity to Chimera makes it uninhabitable.

Glaucus (C2)

A large planet covered in overactive volcanoes and posessed of no magnetic field. Resistant to terraforming even if it were within the correct distance from Chimera to support life, Glaucus is uninhabitable.

Neuostland (CI3)

The first habitable planet of the Chimera System is a German Baurnwelt or 'Farming World', where serfs work the fields to feed the Nazi Empire.

Moons of Neuostland

New Ukraine (CI4)

New Ukraine is the second inhabitable planet, and the second largest planet in the Chimera system, after Bellerophon, and the longest-inhabited Soviet colony outside the solar system.

Moons of New Ukraine

Bellerophon (C5)

Bellerophon is an uninhabitable gas giant a little larger than Jupiter. It has two habitable moons, just on the outside border of the belt of life-supporting worlds in the system.

Moons of Bellerophon

Sardephon (C6)

A smaller gas giant than Bellerophon, it has no moons but a series of rings.
