The Klendathu system

The Klendathu system[1] is the Arachnids' home system deep inside the Arachnid Quarantine Zone that consists of several planets including Klendathu, and Planet-P. The system is a twin star system, whose brutal gravitational forces produced an asteroid belt that provide the unlimited source for the Arachnids to use as "Bug Meteors" against Earth.[2]

Known planets[]


  • In the 1988 anime Starship Troopers, the system is called Glendathu System (グレンダツウ星系 Grendatsū Seikei).[3]
