Colonized in the Late First Federation era by various Nearbaseline clades, most notably members of radical Sufi sects. Mu Capricorni later attracted colonists from neighboring systems such as Ain Soph Aur and the Yas Om. Memetic engineering eased the subsequent tensions, and Keterists brought the system into the fold with promises of economic success which were more or less fulfilled.

The system was ravaged in the Version war and most of the Nearbaseline habitats were destroyed. Afterwards the Yas Om transapient Jolgru collected the system and fully integrated it into Keter society.

Today the system is mostly artificial. The Jovians have been converted into the dyson swarm that surrounds the star and the Mars-like world Pme chemu fus has been fully terraformed, mostly as a tourist destination.
