Vulcan system (WoF)

The 40 Eridani system[8] — also known as the Vulcan system — is a trinary star system consisting of a Type K orange dwarf primary and two companion stars.[3]

The system's primary star, 40 Eridani A,[3] a Type K orange dwarf, was orbited by two planets. The first planet was Vulcan (Class M), and the second was T'Khut (Class H). The two planets shared an orbit,[5] which regularly gave magnificent views of T'Khut and its moon from the Vulcan surface.[5] Nearly a fifth of the system's population of 14.9 billion lived in the system's heavily-industrialized asteroid belt.[3]
