Has one moon, "a brighter satellite than Alastar was accustomed to."[4]


"Both the Alliance’s capitals had been purpose-built for their work, and their designers had wanted the natural beauty of their sites integrated with their architecture; as symbol, and as aspiration for the new federation they’d been creating."[5]
