Xanadu is a star system located in the Vega Sector. It is a territory of the Terran Confederation.

Xanadu served as an important military installation for the Terran Confederation Navy, hosting the Xanadu Base and several facilities on the surface of the planet Xanadu. Xanadu was seen as something of a pleasure planet for Terran servicemen. The planet was renowned for its vast oceans and numerous archipelagos, which hosted numerous casinos, resorts, restaurants, and recreational sports for battle-weary soldiers and officers to indulge in after long days fighting on the frontlines.

In 2667, the TCS Johnny Greene arrived at Xanadu after two years of frontier patrols after an engagement with Terran raiders left them with a damaged oxygen supply. However, they were ordered to divert to nearby Hilo Base on the grounds that they were prohibited from landing on Xanadu by orders of Admiral Wayne Banbridge.
