Enceladus

The moon, Enceladus

Enceladus is the 6th largest Moon of Saturn and the site of a Pirate base.

GeographyEdit

Enceladus, a moon of Saturn known to be one of the only three moons in the Solar System to be astrologically active along with Io and Triton. Enceladus is the sixth-largest moon of Saturn. It was discovered in 1789 by William Herschel. Until the two Voyager spacecraft passed near it in the early 1980s, very little was known about this small moon besides the identification of water ice on its surface. Examination of the resulting highest resolution mosaic reveals at least five different types of terrain, including several regions of cratered terrain, regions of smooth (young) terrain, and lanes of ridged terrain often bordering the smooth areas. Much of Enceladus's surface is covered with craters at various densities and levels of degradation. Enceladus is a relatively small satellite, with a mean diameter of 505 kilometers (314 mi), only one-seventh the diameter of Earth's own Moon. In diameter Enceladus is small enough to fit within the length of the island of Great Britain. It could also fit comfortably within the states of Arizona or Colorado, although as a spherical object its surface area is much greater, just over 800,000 square kilometers (310,000 sq mi), almost the same as Mozambique, or 15% larger than Texas.

FictionEdit

ExosquadEdit

The moon had been heavily fortified and most of the facilities on the planet were underground tunnels, some of which were pressurized with a breathable atmosphere. The pirate's command center was located underground was. Silent alarms were located at the entrances of the ice caves that led to the command center. A secondary defense was the placement of holographically cloaked laser cannons inside the ice caves that would subject an intruder to a crossfire.

This was the site of the Battle of Enceladus during the Pirate Clans War. Although the pirates were forced to retreat to Tethys, they did manage to inflict heavy losses by opening fire after the Exocarriers had moved into position for an orbital bombardment. The Jumptroop units sent in also faced heavy resistance from the ground defenses. The Drej targeted Enceladus once the destruction of the Titan during the Second Drej War.
