The fifth planet of the Sol system, most often called Planet 5 but possibly named Thyrop-Minerva (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5) or Hestia, (PROSE: Oblivion) was the home planet of the "Star People", (PROSE: White Darkness) the Fendahl, and the Memeovore. (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5)

History Edit

At some point in the distant past, when the Great Old Ones were still present across the universe but after the Earth reptiles had gone into hibernation, the Star People created the Fendahl as genetically engineered servitors. However, they were overpowered by their creations, which went on to hunt the Great Old Ones throughout the universe. (PROSE: White Darkness)

Consequently, circa 12,000,000 BC, the Time Lords removed Planet 5 from the Sol system by placing it in a time loop. As a result, the fifth planet and all records of it were made permanently invisible. The Sol system's asteroid belt subsequently occupied the orbit of the planet, 107 million miles out from Earth, between Mars and Jupiter. (TV: Image of the Fendahl) Prior to this, the planet had been linked to the goddess Hestia. (PROSE: The Rise and Fall of Señor 105)

The time loop enabled the last species left on Planet 5 to evolve into a lifeform that could feed on Fendahl, (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5) the Memeovore. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

During the War against the Enemy, Time Lords from the Eighth Doctor's subjective future planned to use a fleet of War TARDISes to undo the time barriers around Planet 5 in order to harness the Fendahl as a weapon against the Enemy; however, this instead resulted in the release of the Memeovore. (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5)

Alternate timeline Edit

In an alternate reality, the fifth planet Hestia existed in place of the asteroid belt. (PROSE: Oblivion)
