Bistangio is a star system in the Epsilon Sector. It was under Confederation control prior to 2673, but may now belong to the Union of Border Worlds.

Bistangio is a frontier system that was renowned for its beautiful ruins, most of which were found on Bistangio X. It likely hosted a fairly large Terran population. It is unknown what role it played in the Terran-Kilrathi War prior to 2669. It likely worked to remain neutral due to their desire to protect Bistangio's national treasures.

In 2669, Bistangio X hosted a concert by Eddie Rickenharp, as he had been drafted to play for the Confederation servicemen on the war front. The concert ended in disaster when a savage Kilrathi assault left thousands dead and much of Bistangio X's ruins destroyed. Rickenharp barely survived the attack.
