System Information
X:Y Coordinates 119.804 : -402.483[e]

The Zangul system holds at least one habitable world and as at 2750 was located in the Sian Commonality of the Capellan Confederation.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Zangul system was located near the Enkra and Larsha systems.[1]

System History[edit]

The Zangul system was colonized by the Confederation during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[1][2][3] Zangul vanished from maps during the First Succession War[3][4], indicating that the system had been abandoned, depopulated, or rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.

It re-appeared on maps in 3022 as part of the Aurigan Coalition,[5] a young political entity itself teetering on the brink of collapse at the time,[6] but vanished from maps again afterwards.

Political Affiliation[edit]

Infrastructure

Zangul is a cold (but apparently not, or not entirely frozen) water world dotted with islands and archipelagos.

Planetary History[edit]

The original Capellan colony comprised of a spaceport that completely covered one of the larger islands.[36] By ca. 3026 that spaceport island was described as a decaying hulk, but still home to most of the planet's population.[36]
