The Human Expanse


Humanity has spread out to the stars with colonies in Alpha Centauri, Barnard’s Star, Epsilon Eridani, Lalande 21185, Proxima Centauri and Tau Ceti.  Contained here is information on the Star Systems and the planets contained therein.  Each Star has generally one major colonial world.  Some are independent others are a colony of some other (usually) Earth based power.  However, as the ecological disasters overtake Earth, many of the colonies are dreaming or achieving independence.

All the stars except Lalande 21185 and Proxima Centauri are connected by Jump Gates.  Copernicus in the Proxima Centauri system is only .2 light years from a gate, but Lippincott in Lalande 21185 is 8.2 light years from Sol.
