Delta Pavonis was one-half of a binary system with its neutron star partner, Hades, which was ten light-hours away. Eleven major planets orbited the pair -- including the former homeworld of the Amarantin, Resurgam, and the gas giant Roc -- along with asteroidal debris and comet fragments.

Circa 2511, the Lorean colonized one of its planets, Resurgam, with the archeological expedition of Dan Sylveste.

Over a century later another of its planets, Roc, was destroyed by the Inhibitors and its remains used as raw materiel for a device that caused Pavonis itself to wipe all remaining life off Resurgam and render it uninhabitable.
