Iotan asteroid belt

The Iotan asteroid belt and the icy fourth planet.

The Iota system is located in the, largely unexplored, Orion Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy.

It is 103.2 light years from the Sol System. The system has eight planets, an asteroid and kuiper belt, and a red giant star.

In 2334, a few million Christians secretly moved to the system, first colonizing the only Class-M Planet in the system, Iota Four. Then Iota Three in 2348 and Iota Two in 2357.

Later, when The Movement was started, their headquarters were located underground on the acidic second planet. 

The system is also known to have been completely uninhabited before it's colonization.
