Cythera Beta is the outermost of this solar system's two planets. It is a fairly large, rocky planet covered with remarkable canyons and immense mountains.

A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia.

In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
