The Sigma Draconis System was a star system located in the heart of the Solarian League. It was also commonly referred to as the Beowulf System. (HH13)

Stellar geography[edit | edit source]

It was forty light years from the Sol System[1] (HH1), four hundred and seventy-five light years from the Manticore System (HH3), and about sixty light years from the Visigoth System. (SI2)

There were two inhabited planets in the system, Beowulf, the first extrasolar world settled by humanity, and Cassandra. The system contained a gas giant, named Enlil, as well. (HH1, HH14)

The Beowulf Terminus of the Manticore Wormhole Junction was located near the planet, making Sigma Draconis a major traffic junction between Manticore and the Solarian League. (HH1)

The system also had an asteroid belt known as the Diomedes Belt. (HH14)

History[edit | edit source]

In 1922 PD, during the Solarian-Manticoran War, the people of Beowulf decided to secede from the Solarian League. Shortly after, the Solarian League Navy attacked the system unsuccessfully, inadvertently allowing the Mesan Alignment to carry out a major strike against Beowulf's major space stations. (HH14)
