|“||First settled in 2402, Vega experienced rapid growth until the Vanduul emerged in neighboring systems during the late 27th century and a large portion of the populace fled. However, in the last decade, the system has undergone a revival driven by increased military presence, solid infrastructure, and low real estate prices.||”|
The Vega system was first settled in 2402. Two planets in the green zone, Aremis and Selene, were quickly terraformed. The system's population expanded, constructed cities, mined the asteroid field and gained its first UEE representative in rapid succession.
The system's population had been decreasing rapidly since the fall of Armitage in the late 27th century when they found themselves on the front line of the Vanduul territory, fearing a Vanduul invasion (which has not yet happened).
For the past ten years Vega has been attracted people looking for cheap real estate and good infrastructure who can handle the Vanduul threat.
Major Vanduul raid
On October of the year 2945 the Vanduul launched a Major raid on the Vega system, more information on the Empire report below :
We interrupt your spectrum programming for urgent breaking news. We have just learned of a major Vanduul raid in the Vega System.
Details are still coming in, but we have received early comms indicating that the Navy border fleet is currently engaged with a massive Vanduul force outside of Aremis’ orbit. No firm word yet on what could be heavy military and civilian losses.
To repeat, there has been a large-scale Vanduul incursion into the Vega System directly above Vega II. Not much is known at the moment; we have been trying to establish contact with our local affiliate but have had no success so far. We suspect that the array grid has been severely damaged in the fight.
|“||We have just gotten word that Imperial officials at the NFSC are requesting that everyone hold off on trying to contact friends and loved ones in Vega at the moment, in order to keep comm relays free for emergency communication. This may hamper the flow of information out of the system beyond official channels, but we will keep working to learn as much as we can.
Our thoughts and hopes go out to all those in Vega and the brave starmen fighting there.
Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

Don't let the local attitude fool you — Vega is on the front line. Vanduul traveling parties have been known to transit the system. This places civilians in imminent danger of encountering Vanduul raiders.
A rocky mesoplanet that closely orbits its star.
A lush, verdant world orbited by a set of planetary rings, Aremis was initially used as a military base when the Vanduul began their push after Orion. Recently, the planet has enjoyed an economic and cultural boom. Its population is expected to eclipse that of its sister world, Selene, within the next decade. It was pursuing recognition by the UEE when it suffered a devastating attack at the hands of the Vanduul.
An industrial world in the middle of economic downturn attributed to the ongoing threat of Vanduul attacks in the system, many of Selene's city-centers are only half the population they once were.
Vega IV is a reddish-brown gas giant dotted with orbital fuel refineries.
