What is Jemison?

Jemison is a major planet in Starfield, located in the Alpha Centauri system. Named after NASA’s first black female astronaut, Mae Jemison, the planet is a temperate world within the habitable zone of the system. It sports abundant native fauna and flora and its gravity is comparable to that of Earth, at roughly 90% the same strength. It shares the Alpha Centauri system with a few other planets of note, such as Gagarin.

Jemison is also the central jewel of the Starfield United Colonies faction, and the one of most important planets within their territory. It’s highly populated, wealthy, and hosts the United Colonies capital. It’s also the main base of operations for another important group, the Starfield Constellation faction. The intrepid space explorers share the United Colonies’ capital planet as their own home base of operations.
