History & Background (Dossier)

Banasdan is a poor, high-population world located in Banasdan Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and is the subsector capital.

The world was settled by Terrans following the Eighth Interstellar War. During the Long Night Banasdan was the capital of a small pocket empire known as the Arcturus Federation, the smallest of the original Rim States. Banasdan reluctantly joined the Imperium in 583.
