Colonised in 3099, this world was initially an independent colony. In 3694 AT it was attacked by virulent AI-viruses which destroyed all local high-tech infrastructure including the stargates which linked this system to several remote colonies, all of which succumbed to barbarism. These viruses were eventually traced back to the Hyperion-Charlwood Alliance, which was attacked and defeated by a rare alliance of the Solar Dominion and Conver Ambi.

Geteche was eventually recolonised by the Solar Dominion and new stargates created; this world is now the capital of the prefecture that includes Hyperion and Matilde.

    Second Federation and later term for two major and several minor interstellar wars rimwards of Sol during the Age of Empires. They saw the S>2 and especially archailect empires gain ground over the earlier SI:1 and SI:2 governed empires. The two most important of these were the (earlier) Nexus War (involving the breakup of the Taurus Nexus) and the (later) Conver Wars (involving out-of-control elements in the Conver Ambi, presumably the result of subversion by a perverse or ahuman ai).

  • Hyperionites - Text by Anders Sandberg
    Solarian heretic sect, founded by refugees from the purges of Hyperion. They settled a number of systems in the Perseus Rift, and have been a constant source of anti-Dominion sentiment. They are still ruled by highly diverged remains of house Marabi Patha, and claim the hyperturing Hyperion is the true Prime Reflector while the Lord of Rays is an impostor. The faithful believe that when the time is right Hyperion will reveal itself from its 6000 year hiding and usher in the era of the True Dominion.
