Argyle III - more commonly known simply as Argyle - is the third planet in the Argyle system and has four moons, named Aisillik, Corey, Jamais and Stiggin's Moon respectively.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Argyle is located near New Avalon, but wasn't settled until that world became too crowded. With its vast open plains and fertile soil, it quickly became one of the Crucis March's breadbasket worlds. During the thirty-first century it exported a great deal of food to neighboring worlds, along with microelectronics and manufactured goods. Given its proximity to New Avalon and pleasant climate, Argyle was also a popular vacation spot with the nobility of the Federated Suns. In fact, the Davion family kept a vacation estate on this world.[1]

Argyle was also considered one of the Federated Suns' "Garden Worlds"; worlds that surround the "Golden Five" worlds of the Crucis March.[1]
