Sector Sirius
Status Star

The Sirius system was a capital of the Sirius Sector, and one of the planets advanced by some late Galactic Era archaeologists as the planet of origin for the human species. Between 800 and 900 G.E., a planet in the Sirius system was one of the ten most populated planets in the Galaxy. The name clearly comes from the star Sirius.
