Description:

Another unlikely candidate for colonization, Alhena was initially settled as little more than a scientific outpost during mankind's earliest ventures into space, exploring the potential for life under even the harshest environments. Orbiting the outer sun of a binary star system whose primary and secondary suns vary between nine and twelve Terran standard astronomical units in distance, this world has developed a peculiar orbit as a result of the interacting pull of both suns, creating a pattern where long, harsh winters follow short, but pleasant, summers.

Despite this inhospitable environment and the relative lack of free water on the planet's surface, small settlements eventually rose all over the northern hemisphere, particularly along the shores of the polar Alhennian Ocean. Lacking in major resources, this world was largely overlooked throughout the Age of War and the Star League era, even though it relied heavily on off-world trade — particularly in agricultural machinery and products — in order to sustain its population.

Through the Succession Wars, however, its position as a Free Worlds League border world led to several raids by nearby House Steiner, leaving the surface scarred and battered, further undermining the people's ability to raise enough food for self-sufficiency.

Alhena's capital city and primary spaceport, Focci's Point, is located near the eastern shores of the Alhennian Ocean.
