Gorgon
System information
X:Y Coordinates -547.28 : 267.57[e]

The Gorgon system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 2750 was located in the Timbuktu Province of the Rim Worlds Republic.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Gorgon system is located near the Findal and Jardangal systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

Gorgon was a part of the Timbuktu Province of the Rim Worlds Republic and is located near Jardangal and Findal. Gorgon vanished from maps during the Second Succession War,[3][4] indicating that the system had become too sparsely populated or insignificant to merit further recording on maps.

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Although Gorgon was too insignificant to merit being recorded on maps, the planet remained inhabited throughout the Succession Wars. With a population of some two hundred and fifty thousand people in 3075, the planet was ruled by Supreme Emperor Greg Kijas; Kijas was the owner of a Quasit MilitiaMech that he used to defend the population against pirates, although it's unclear if the planet received much - if any - attention from pirates, as it's only contribution to interstellar trade, politics or conflict was a single shipment of Gorgon's Breath spice per year, and it was considered beneath the notice of the vast majority of pirates.[26]
