  • Beta Colony
rdfs:comment
  • Beta Colony was the second planet to be settled by humans, before wormhole travel was discovered. The planet's biome was almost entirely desert, described as "screaming hot," and the colony itself existed primarily underground. Sandstorms occurred from time to time; the largest body of water was smaller than the lake at Vorkosigan Surleau on Barrayar. "There's the old sandbox at last." ―Upon Cordelia's arrival home at the end of the Escobar War.
  • __TOC__ Beta Colony is the center of progressive galactic thought, a highly technologically advanced and scientifically oriented society. In short summary, CRAZY LIBERALS.
  • Beta Colony was an Earth Alliance colony on the third planet of the Sheffer System.
