Cygnus, also designated as Cygnus II, is an Outer Colony world of the Unified Earth Government and the second planet in orbit in the Cygnus system.[1]

History[edit]

Cygnus was one of two habitable worlds in the system colonized by the Unified Earth Government, the other being New Jerusalem. Chyler Silva of the Silva family was born on Cygnus before moving to Mamore.[1]

In the late 2540's, a colony ship traveling to Cygnus suffered a catastrophic slipspace malfunction due to its improperly mounted slipspace drive. When the drive was activated, the ship was cut in half and 700 crew and passengers were killed.[2]

After the Human-Covenant War, fetcher Oliver Birch was intending to deliver a "saddle box" slipspace drive to an ONI agent, Steve, on Cygnus.[3]
