Rhea is a Federal system in the Core Systems within the Inner Orion Spur. It is a famed holiday system.[1] It is also the Powerplay headquarters of Felicia Winters, Shadow President of the Federation.


The starport Ito Orbital was bombed by the Neo-Marlinist Liberation Army on March 11, 3307, along with starports in eight other major systems. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed in the Nine Martyrs attack, and many more were injured. The coordinated attacks occurred during the Galactic Summit in Sirius, and caused the conference to be cancelled.[2][3]
