Trafalgar is a star system in the Epsilon Sector. It is a territory of the Union of Border Worlds.

Trafalgar is a secondary territory located on the frontier of the Terran Confederation, first settled in 2575. It hosts ten planets, of which at least one, Quarto, is settled. In resides in the Tanhauser Nebula.

In 2669, the Kilrathi Empire launched a biological attack on Trafalgar, infecting much of the population of Quarto. Human blood served as the disease vector. Locanda and Delius suffered similar attacks. 4% of the system's total population died and the rest were dying at a rate of 23 per day, according to Trafalgar Disease Control.

Quarto was deemed a total loss and the system altogether can now only be visited with bio-suits for personal protection. The surviving population now resides in the asteroid belts, where they make a living as miners.

By 2701, 25,450,988 people still reside in the system, despite several incursions by the Nephilim. Trafalgar hosts one communications relay network that survived the invasion, and it remains strategically important due to its linkage between the Core Worlds and the frontier. The government pays privateers to defend the relay from incoming meteorites from the nearby asteroid belt.
