Cythonna (LHS 2520 II)
LHS 2520 is a fairly unremarkable red dwarf star 27 light years from Sol. In 2012, DC Comics announced in Action Comics Superman #14 that this particular star was where the planet Krypton orbited.
In 2023, a group of Superfen took the long journey out to LHS 2520 and discovered three bodies of interest around the star.
A searing hot, super-Jupiter gas giant (Class S in Starfleet terms), this gas supergiant’s year lasts a mere two weeks.
A dense asteroid belt right smack-dab in the middle of the goldilocks zone. Prior to leaving, the Superfen expedition left behind a small memorial plaque on a large asteroid they dubbed Argo.
A frozen, lifeless rock that is just barely inside Rao’s outer habitation zone. One member of the original expedition wanted to call it Ma'aleca'andra, as it was “a Mars with more ice.”
