The Vega Sirenti system is an uninhabited planetary system in the Menthar Corridor, approximately fifty light years from Deep Space 10.


The system's core is the main sequence star Vega Sirenti. Approximately two solar masses, the star is in the last quarter of its life before it transitions to a red giant in about two billion years. As such, Vega Sirenti system is among one of the older stars in the region.

Vega Sirenti possesses a very powerful magnetic field, a phenomenon still being studied.

Planetary Bodies

  • Vega Sirenti I: A small, rocky planet with a dense atmosphere and heavy greenhouse-gas conditions. Current surveys show it as uninteresting, a Venus-like world incapable of supporting sentient life.
  • Vega Sirenti II: A planet that merits further study. Evidence indicates that it was once in the hot end of the habitable zone of the Vega Sirenti star, but as the star has aged and its energy output has gradually increased, it is suspected that what may have once been a Class L (marginally habitable) planet became Class H (generally uninhabitable) approximately a billion years ago. No Menthar artifacts are currently known to exist on Vega Sirenti II.
  • Vega Sirenti III: A Class M world previously inhabited by the Menthar, sparse archaeological ruins have been discovered here, dated at approximately nine hundred years old. Right in the middle of Vega Sirenti's habitable zone, it is suspected that the planet, relatively temperate now, would have been very cold when neighboring Vega Sirenti II might have been habitable.
  • Vega Sirenti IV: A class J gas giant made up primarily of hydrogen and helium, nothing interesting has currently been discovered about Vega Sirenti IV.
  • Vega Sirenti V: A class T gas ultragiant with a large ring, Vega Sirenti V has a diameter of approximately 70,000,000 kilometers. It has a high gravitational pull compared to most class T planets, suggesting that the elements at its core are very dense.

Navigational Hazards

  • Kuiper Belt/Asteroid Field: Nothing unusual is known to exist in the star system's rocky belts. As Vega Sirenti is an older planetary system, many of the loose rocks in the system have been pulled into orbit or collision with Vega Sirenti V. As such, navigating the Vega Sirenti system is considered easy.
