A solar system, also called a star system, is a group of astronomical objects orbiting one or more stars. Many solar systems are comprised of a number of planets, comets, and asteroids. Inhabited systems whose peoples are sufficiently advanced might also construct space stations or pilot spaceships and starships within a solar system.
Travel between planets in a system is generally accomplished via spaceships and starships. Travel from one system to another requires a starship capable of faster-than-light travel, including use of the Drift.
