Planetary Info[edit]

New Ganymede is a barren desert world with little surface water and an unpleasant atmosphere. The planet is at the edge of the Hyades Cluster. The high winds and frequent dust storms often obscure the sky for days at a time, but the many and plentiful radioactive surface ore deposits make New Ganymede one of the most important mining worlds within the Taurian Concordat. The planet's few concentrations of surface water are mostly concentrated in southern latitudes. The planet's semi-permanent garrison forces are normally stationed by these highly valuable resources.[1]

During the Reunification War the planet was assaulted by a unique method: The WarShips attached to I Corps bombarded the planet from orbit for 30 days. The inhabitants were then offered a chance to surrender. They refused, and another 30 days of bombardment occurred before the SLDF asked for a surrender. Again the inhabitants refused, and received another 30 days of orbital bombardment. After that round of bombardment ended, the inhabitants surrendered. I Corps troopers moved in, moving through the (largely radioactive) dust and debris that had been kicked into the atmosphere. In August 2587 the world was in SLDF hands.[46]

As of 3028, New Ganymede was home to the First Battalion of the Pleiades Hussars who were stationed here to protect both the miners and the valuable extractors. New Ganymede is also home to the Concordat's desert warfare training facility in the northern polar regions.[1]
