The Stank system is a simple planetary system not unlike the Sol system, home to holy Terra. The system is centred on a medium-sized yellow star and has six planets, the inner four being rocky and the outer two being gas giants.
The system was discovered by Grygr Stank, commander of an explorator fleet prowling the edge of known space for new opportunities for the Imperium. Following standard system scans, colonists were landed on the third planet, Stank Delta. Once assured of their safe landing, the fleet moved on, leaving the colonists to be marshalled by Pytr Stank, brother of Grygr Stank.
