Vega I as depicted in the Ark Starmap
Vega I is a dwarf planet that orbits closely to the star of the Vega system, United Empire of Earth (UEE). Small and very hot with temperatures that often exceed 200 C, Vega I is inhospitable to known forms of life. Its silicate crust covers a solid iron core, making the planet very dense in spite of its small size. Evidence suggests that a lava ocean once fully covered Vega I.
