The Shaps system is a planetary system with fourteen planets in orbit around the F2 V star[1] Shaps' Star,[2] located within the Milky Way galaxy. The system is located 8.7 light-years away from the Cordoba system.[1]


The Shaps system was once part of the Forerunner ecumene. The Forerunners had established a settlement on the system's third planet, Shaps III.[2]

In 2553, Sav Fel brought Staffan Sentzke and Edvin Sentzke to the Shaps system to try out the Pious Inquisitor's energy projector. Sav chose Shaps III to test it since it was a wasteland with ancient ruins and no one would notice the energy spike.[2]
