The third planet, Beta Prometheus III has a habitable moon, Beta Prometheus III-A, the homeworld of the Beta Prometheans.

- The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "beta" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Prometheus", of which Beta Prometheus would logically be indicated to be the second most prominent star or system. It is not known if there is any such grouping with the similarly named Prometheus system.
