This article is about the moon of Jupiter. For the city, see Ganymede (city).
Topography and ecology
Ganymede is traditionally an airless body, and as such the majority of human settlement on the moon takes place inside a vast underground terraformed cavern system. The moon's surface remains harsh to life.
Rise of humanity
Ganymede was one of many bodies of the Solar System settled by humanity during the early half of the 22nd century. This era would see Ganymede become home to a significant Frieden presence, and was one of several sites involved in the Jovian Moons Campaign of the Interplanetary War. By mid-2169, Ganymede (along with many other Jovian Moons) had been invaded by the UNSC Marine Corps, and Frieden forces destroyed.
Government and society
Ganymede is famously proud and isolationist, and as such retains troubled relations with its neighbours. The moon is divided into numerous habitat-states including Aigburth - the political chaos of which is regarded as entertaining, if not educational.
