Bacchus Moon is a settled moon. The moon has no green space, and is covered by cities, including the capital, Semele. Its convenient location made it[1] a popular vacation spot. It has a reputation for being a haven for illegal activity and vice,[2] although in reality the moon's heavy security prevents much crime from occurring.

In 2494, Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay attempted to rob the moon's Covington Bank in Semele under the order of Scutter O'Banon. However, the operation went awry, leading to Tychus's capture by authorities, though Raynor was able to escape.[1]

Terran Dominion marines commonly took shore leave on Bacchus Moon, enjoying it various establishments.[3]





The moon may be named after the Roman god of the same name.
