List of places

This is a list of all known canon locations in the Milky Way as well as a few of their characteristics.

Inner Worlds

Cissinia

Cissinia, former home of Ama'lia Milson and Cindrina Milson, is a Sanctuary World orbiting a dying star, notable both for being one of the few Sanctuaries both within the border of the Inner Worlds, and for being home to much lush native flora and fauna. Over a hundred years previously, humanity attempted to invade and force the original alien habitants to the edges of the galaxy, but these natives put up fierce and violent opposition to being moved. This was brought up in a sympathetic light in galactic media and protests eventually ended the war prematurely with a truce. It was determined that the Cissinians could stay on four of the planet's eleven continents, while humanity would control the rest.

Ctoba IX

A world notable for its vast swampland and lush native vegetation, it was originally stolen from a species of aliens known as the zlemoids, and a former slave trade hub. Ctoba is a popular headquarters for members of the criminal underworld.
Lugg D lived here for most of his life.

Elbacrow

Also known as "Highwood", Elbacrow VIII is best known for its incredibly tall plateau-top forests and native fauna, and less well known for its corrupt aristocratic government or the slumlike living conditions its valley-bound citizens are privy to. Kalla was born on the plateaus in the forests before they were designated as off-limits, and Trig led a rebellion against the government here. Elbacrow has a hotter sister planet which is mostly deserts and caves; only the poles are considered to be livable conditions, but bands of smugglers, pirates and rebels make their homes further south near the equator.

Ilpkenore II

A world noted for its enhanced academic structure and expansive, shallow oceans, largely due to a lack of tectonic activity. Cities are built in the water as often as not; this is the case of Hilikpon, the city Clara Lesaille grew up in. While the ruling aristocracy is corrupt, it rarely meddles in the affairs of its citizens.

Karbad III

A thriving police state consisting of multiple cities where cyber crimes such as hacking are punished immediately. BFett grew up on this planet and was later charged and convicted of hacking a bank despite his claims otherwise. Iquilia Naja also came from this planet.

Kepler-438B

This planet was selected for terraforming purposes, and would have become a planet suitable for humanoids. However, Foreigner killed off the small colony's population with the terraforming machinery and the project was shut down.

New Earth

A shining beacon to humans, but a hated, evil capitol to aliens. Prejudice and racism abounds here, and it is very rare that you will see anyone other than a human walking the streets. New Earth is covered with fauna and flora brought over from the old world in a carefully maintained artificial ecosystem, and has a controlled population of roughly one billion. Living here is expensive and considered a privilege, but there are still many places in nearby systems that people can live.

Proioxis

A planet in a fairly quiet system at the root of the Orion arm, at the outer part of the inner rim. The galactic equivalent of the suburbs, not as rich as New Earth, but a very nice place to live. Or, according to Proioxian teenagers, incredibly boring, which might be a reason for its well-known and plentiful space flight academies. Dinosawer grew up there.

Rakkaati

The name of a system, the supergiant in it and the superstation orbiting the gas giant. The supergiant is mined for hydrogen. This was the home station of Karlyle Edonboon III.

Shai'lin

Shai'lin is a watery world with clusters of mountainous islands, under the soft, cool light of its parent star, and has a penchant for spectacular sunsets and rolling sea-level fogs. The flora is typically short with deciduous flowering, fruit-bearing foliage. It is very picturesque, and a well known tourist destination as such, but the majority of its income is produced by manufacturers of luxury goods. Kai'isha was noted to have come from this planet.

TE-34

An earthlike planet where the human colonists all died mysterious deaths over the course of a few months. Tonon Murk claims to have been behind it, but this is unconfirmed, and it is rumored he was actually arrested for stealing a pig.

U-235

A world ravaged by war, locked in a destructive nuclear arms race. Eventually a nuclear holocaust wiped out all the life on the surface. Humans Tulius and Rikke were held responsible for this atrocity, and later sent to REKT.

Outer Worlds

Bax

Bax is a world only vaguely referred to by the Baxian species. This frail, hyperintelligent race has managed to hide their homeworld from humanity for over five hundred years; it is uncertain where exactly it is, or what it looks like. This is an incredible feat, as it is presumed that some sort of technology may be involved in actively cloaking the entire star system from detection.

Chilendorn

Chilendorn is a star system near the very edge of the Milky Way galaxy consisting of an irregular gamma ray pulsar and a thick asteroid belt. It was the site of Mission-1, and the site of a Quantum base, which was subsequently consumed or destroyed by Dark Space.

k'Ryn

The homeworld of the ^kö species. Little is known about it except that it may be heavily irradiated, as is the preference of the species.

Old Earth

Once a beautiful world, Earth has become soiled and ruined by centuries of pollution and neglect. Most of the planet is slum-ridden and in poverty, while a select few, smaller countries such as Japan and the United Kingdom remain something close to what they once were. Due to global warming, dikes are a common sight, and line the coasts of countries that could afford to build them. In other less fortunate countries, they have simply abandoned the former coastline and moved further inland.

Omicron 8

A human planet with slumlike conditions and heavy rains. The inhabitants are often abducted by scientists to be used as lab rats. Inmate Hema was born in one of the settlements here and abducted in a similar manner.

Rii'shak V

Rii'shak V is for the most part a barren world with rocky peaks and dry, cracked plains rich with iron oxide. Its designation of V suggests that there are four more planets nearer to its host star. It is the home of the Rii'shians, a group of large, sentient alien species that have evolved to survive on their homeworld. It is also the site of an invasion from the Daxx, a species from a neighboring world, who attempted to forcibly claim a site full of anomalous materials, and the site of an early, successful REKT mission predating Platoon 56. CHIARA gave Jimmy Triggerhappy a VR mission that emulated this mission.

Sedirmar

Sedirmar is a young star system near the galaxy's edge, and still has many of its thick, protoplanetary clouds. It is thought to have been in formation for billions of years, suggesting that there may be something there keeping planets from forming. A group of scientists and their guardian mercenaries have taken up residence closer to the parent star; the mercenaries fiercely defend their system from outside intervention while they work to discover the source of the anomalous behavior. Sedirmar is also the site of Mission 2.

Sitatha

A moon around a gas giant named Aerevoh, which in its turn orbits a Class K star. Strangely, Sitatha is inside the Roche limit of its mother planet (the Roche limit is the border inside which satellites get ripped apart by tidal forces) and thus shouldn't exist at all. Even stranger, the moon is host of signals seemingly of Quantum origin, and several strange domes. Part of this moon was the location of mission 3.

Taghdara

Taghdara is a moon in a star system in close proximity to Earth. It was the site of one of the first battles between humanity and neighboring alien species. Humanity was ultimately defeated, and 800-year-old wreckage - much of it in the form of dangerous nuclear reactors - still litters the surface, making it almost uninhabitable. Notable for being a pre-game mission site for Platoon 56, although their work was performed in orbit.

Tyrpaxia

Tyrpaxia is noted as a planet with particularly dangerous flora, in SCAMPS' words: "Squad 239 and 241 are doing a joint mission on Tyrpaxia, and they're having a little trouble with the local flora. We're going to try to shell the shits from orbit, but we'll need to be careful not to get too close to the planet lest they grab hold of the Tartarus." Little else is known about it.
When Andrew Rice looked at it through the mess hall window, he saw:
Before you stretches a mountainous planet with an unimaginable amount of greenery - only the poles lack the color, and are instead a dry, yellowish color. As you stare at the planet, you begin to se shapes moving around - small shapes, but shapes nonetheless - curves that look like gigantic, twisting vines. It's only then that you realize - you aren't looking at mountains. Those are creatures. The immense scale of their bodies stuns you into silence.

Undisclosed

Staccato City

It is unknown what planet this city is on, or whether it's even a city. However, it is implied that this is where the Staccato City Ensemble originated, and where Francis originally hails from. It can be assumed that the city is renowned for its musicality.
