Famous as the first true corporate system and is also notable for the first interstellar war. Since 2350, the Sirius Corporation has been using the vast amounts of cheap energy available on Lucifer from coils wrapped around the planet for synthesis of custom elements (particularly military-grade fuel).[1]

Lucifer is a landable high metal content world. The system coordinates are 6.25 / -1.28125 / -5.75.

The ancient name is Alpha Canis Majoris.

In 2339 a commercial colonial expedition reached the unusual binary Sirius system. The colonisation was the first solely corporate colonial mission and the company rapidly rose to become the premier supplier of drive fuel throughout human space.[2]

Access to Sirius requires acquiring a permit from Sirius Corporation by becoming allied with the independent faction, and accepting the Permit Acquisition Opportunity mission from the Mission Board.

The main A-type star has a magnitude of −1.46 and there is a faint white dwarf companion. The system is between 200 and 300 million years old.[3] Originally it was composed of two bright blueish stars.

Sirius is also called the Dog Star in some ancient cultures. The phrase "the dog days of summer" means the hottest days of summer.
