Planetary Info[edit]

Ghent is a military garrison in the Deep Periphery beyond Ctesiphon. Ghent orbits a type G2III star, and the jump point is located 8.5 days from the garrison; ships recharging in the system take 183 hours to recharge. During Operation Revival, Ghent was operated by Clan Smoke Jaguar.[1]

By late 3079 or 3080, Ghent was described as a "wasteland of a system after its abandonment by Clan Diamond Shark", though Dark Caste elements were found there and cleared out by Clan Star Adder, culminating in the orbital bombardment of an island by the WarShips Arcadian Asp and Vicious Fang.[2] By 3095 Ghent was destroyed.[3]
