The Melidron system is the location of at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3095 was an independent system located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description

Melidron is located in the rimward region of the Deep Periphery, close to the Flying Bat Nebula and the Perses-Cepherus Cloud Complex. As with many systems located in the Deep Periphery, close is a relative term; the nearest known inhabited systems to Melidron are those containing the worlds of the Alexandrian Covenant, which is located more than 500 light years spinward from Melidron.[1]

Melidron was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of Melidron, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available on Melidron.
