History and specifics
The Zeta Niobe system's orbit was the location of a planetary system, including Homally, a Human colony in the 2280s decade. Homally was a full-status Federation member, a cultural center with an industrial economy and a population of around 1 billion, mostly Human and humanoids. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)
- The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "zeta" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Niobe", of which Zeta Niobe would logically be indicated to be the sixth most prominent star or system.
