Grendel (SR 0111)

Description (Planetology)[edit]

It is a water world with two small moons.

  • Grendel contains an Ancients site, apparently an Ancient bio-engineering facility. Although physical traces of the Ancients are scant, the species on Grendel are "seeded" from other worlds, including Terra. A number of Grendel's higher animals show clear signs of genetic tampering from ~300k years prior.[2]
