Capella Four (also known as Auriga) was a small, uninhabited world.

Astronomical data Edit

Capella Four was the fourth planet orbiting the double star Capella in the constellation Auriga. As both stars were quite hot, Capella Four was a warm world, with a desert-like biome.

Its native life was remarkable for its uniformity: native flora was dominated by plants resembling Earth's bracken fern (twenty-six species, all identical except for size), while native fauna was restricted to eighteen species of a nocturnal spider-like creature, also identical except for size. The fern-like plants and spider-like creatures were all consumable by humans. (PROSE: Steal from the World)

History Edit

At one point in its distant past, the planet was an outpost of the now-vanished Aurigan civilisation.

In 2563, archaeologist Bernice Summerfield visited the planet to find traces of the Aurigan civilisation. Shortly after being dropped off on the planet, she fell off a cliff, breaking both legs. It took her almost a month to crawl back to the dig site, during which she subsisted on night crawlers. (PROSE: Steal from the World)

Years later, Bernice recalled the dig on Auriga as one of the worst things that ever happened to her. (PROSE: Parasite)

Later, Bernice told !Ci!ci-tel, WiRgo!xu, !qu-!qu-tala and John Lafayette about her experience on Capella Four, where she learned her lesson about always being prepared. (PROSE: Walking to Babylon)

In 2599, Bernice returned to Capella Four on assignment from the Braxiatel Collection. (PROSE: Steal from the World)
