Vespus is a star system located in the Enigma Sector. It is a major colony of the Terran Confederation.

Vespus is a densely-populated star system located near the border of the Sol Sector. Its main colony, Vespus, is a well-known vacation spot for Terrans due to its beautiful coasts, among them the Mistral Coast.

Colonel Christopher Blair and his lover Colonel Jeannette Devereaux took a vacation to this planet some time prior to Angel's secret operation on Kilrah in 2669. They spent their time making love on the Mistral Coast.

Vespus is notorious for being the site where the TCS Concordia was destroyed by Kilrathi stragglers after the Battle of Earth. The Concordia was in the system mopping up nearby Kilrathi forces when it was overwhelmed in a surprise attack. The vessel was destroyed and its burning hulk crashed into the sea off the Mistral Coast, killing most of its crew. The vessel now lies half-sunken with its bow sticking out of the water. It was declared a total loss.
