The Solar System is the home planetary system of the terrans. Situated in the inner rim of the Orion Arm, the system is located 25-28,000 light years from the Galactic Core and 60,000 light years from the Koprulu Sector.
Exploration of the system began in the mid-20th century but was curtailed due to budget cuts and political sabotage. Efforts resumed under the United Powers League and colonies were developed across the system starting in the mid- to late-23rd century.
