Proxima is a star system in the Vega Sector. It was one of the first systems colonized by humanity. Proxima has at least four planets, including Leto.

Proxima possesses a jump point leading directly to Sol, the capital of the Terran Confederation. The protection of this system was crucial to Earth's defense in the Terran-Kilrathi War.

In the year 2681, Proxima was a major site of conflict during the ensuing Nephilim War. The "Nephilim" had installed a wormhole in the system, allowing them to launch a second invasion of the galaxy from within the Vega Sector. This invasion was repulsed after a concentrated defense by the Terrans led to the capture of the wormhole device.
