Located about 11 kiloparsecs from Earth in the Transgeled sector of the galaxy, Calmathis VI is the largest and most important of eight settlements orbiting the bright A-type star Calmathis. The planetary system is unremarkable, consisting of three minor rocky planets and two asteroid belts. The other seven settlements are all mining settlements in one of the two asteroid belts; Calmathis VI is in the leading Trojan position of planet #2 (which, confusingly, is also called "Calmathis.")
The settlement was founded in 7528 CE. As the New Renaissance progressed, Calmathis VI enjoyed some popularity as a transfer point and trading base for ships traveling through the Transgeled.
