Antares is a star system in the Epsilon Sector and a territory of the Terran Confederation, although it is now listed as part of the Union of Border Worlds. It is the capital of the Epsilon Sector.

Antares was first settled in 2300 and hosts twelve planets, including the colony of Odell. The planet Antares is the capital of the system, and is heavily settled by the Terrans. It is admired for its vast cityscape.

By 2701, Antares hosts a population of 1,007,366,421,843, and is also home to the Polaris Roads Naval Station, a massive station capable of servicing even the largest of capital ships. It currently serves as the hub of the Confederation 15th Fleet. It is considered a major center of commerce in the region.

Antares suffered heavily at the hands of the Nephilim, with much of its cityscape reduced to ruin by their onslaught. The planet is currently undergoing an extensive but rapid recovery process.
