Planet Details:

Discovered in the late 2290s, Cavanaugh was not settled until 2325 when the planet was first sold to a wealthy member of the former English royal court. Duke Alvin Windsor-Moon organized a team made up of English, Welsh and Scots to colonize Cavanaugh. Included in this group of settlers were the entire Arthurian Actors Guild.

The settlers were not accustomed to the planet's climate and atmospheric conditions, however. Cavanaugh's star was older and hotter than Terra's and the planet's average temperature was 15'C higher than their former homeland. Happily, the planet was rich in timber and the soil fertile; Cavanaugh would support those that had come to settle it.

In honor of their heritage, colonists named the planet's island continents and moons after English historical figures and places, according to their Cambridge historians. Of Cavanaugh's five continents, only one was uninhabitable. Named after Mordred, because of the massive volcanic activity and unstable land no one could live there and survive. Bedivere, Tristram, Gareth and Gawain, all similar in size to the Terran continent of Australia, support Cavanaugh's population. The capital of Caerleon is built on an island in reproduction of its namesake.
