Historical overview

  • At an early stage of development, Venus supported native sentient life. (MA: Venusian Lullaby)
An asteroid belt somehow resulted from the time looping of the fifth planet. Perhaps the Time Lords themselves imported the asteroids as replacement for the excess mass missing when they removed the Fifth Planet.
  • In the mid-20th century, humans on Earth began exploring their solar system via probes and, tentatively at first, with manned missions. Earth's moon was the first object in the Sol system to be visited by humans -- at least, according to the official historical record (DW: Blink, et al). Later, missions to Mars (DW: The Ambassadors of Death) and other planets occurred. For much of the century, the general public believed there to have been nine planets, although a change in the official definition of "planet" disqualified one of them, Pluto, to much controversy in the early 21st century (contemporary accounts); at some later date, Pluto's planetary status was restored (implied DW: The Sun Makers).
  • Circa 2009 CE, Earth was forceably relocated to the Medusa Cascade by the Daleks. The relocation of Earth seemed to have no lasting effects on the Sol system; even Earth's Moon remained in place until the Doctor returned Earth to its proper position. (DW: The Stolen Earth/Journey's End). The end result of the incident was that the general populace of Earth were now aware of the existence of alien life (TW: Children of Earth: Day One, et al), ushering in the planet's increased presence in interstellar affairs from the 21st century onward (DW: The Christmas Invasion, TW: Everything Changes, et al)
  • Around 2089, the Grandaughter of Captain Adelaide Brook decided to pilot the first ever lightspeed earth ship to Proxima Centuri, inspired by her Grandmother who blew up a base on Mars to save the human race. Soon after that, the human race started colonising other Star Systems.
In some unknown way, the move once more devastated Earth, which less informed people attributed to solar flares.

Comings and goings

We do not know whether or not this planetoid originated from outside the Sol system.
  • Originally orbiting Sol at the same distance as Earth, Mondas left orbit and wandered out further into the Sol system. (DW: The Tenth Planet)
  • As noted above, the Earth has been relocated at least twice in its history, only to be either shortly or eventually returned to its original location (DW: The Mysterious Planet and The Stolen Earth).

Sol is a yellow dwarf star located in the Sol system on the Alpha Quadrant/Beta Quadrant border, and is orbited by eight planets and various planetoids, asteroids and other celestial bodies. The star was born five billion years ago. (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)

The USS Enterprise used the slingshot effect around Sol to travel back to the 23rd century after she was sent back in time to the 1960s when it was dragged into the gravity well of a black star. (TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")

In 2285, Admiral James T. Kirk and his crew used the Klingon Bird-of-Prey, HMS Bounty, to sling-shot around Sol so that they could travel back to 1986 and bring two humpback whales forward in time to save Earth from the Cetacean Probe. (TOS movie: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home).

Biography

Sol accompanied Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker on a diplomatic mission to the planet Jabiim. After the team was thrust into the middle of a Battle between the Galactic Empire and the local resistance, Sol was separated from the team and captured by Imperials with the help of the traitor Tal Hesz.

A brainwashed Jorin attempts to strangle Deena Shan.

After this, Sol was taken to the planet Kalist VI, where he was tortured and interrogated as to the whereabouts of the Rebel fleet and Skywalker. During a daring covert operation, a rebel team was able to rescue Sol and the enslaved population of Jabiim. Unknown to the Rebellion, Jorin Sol had been reprogrammed as an Imperial spy, and was now in the midst of the rebel fleet with a special mission: "Destroy the Rebellion from the inside." He began to suffer from periods of spontaneousness in which he would carry out the Empire's plans while being still fully conscious about what he was doing, which caused an unending internal conflict.

Ambush

After being cleared to return to duty, Sol walked onto his ship's bridge and shot everyone, including Leia Organa. He collapsed in horror and told Luke Skywalker that the Empire was on its way. While Janek Sunber dealt with Luke, Jorin pleaded with Tungo Li to get the rebel fleet to run. He then saved him from near death. When Wedge Antilles called the command ship to jump, Jorin jumped down to get to the command console and successfully made a jump to hyperspace, albeit on fire, before losing his life in the process in an explosion seconds later.

(Redirected to Sun article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

This article is about the big shiny thing in the sky. For the Energon episode, see The Sun.
MY EYES! THE GOGGLES, THEY DO NOTHING!

The Sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees. Humans like to call their star "the Sun," but the word "sun" can also apply to any star with a planetary system. Such systems are typically composed of planets, asteroids, and giant eggs that look like asteroids.

Since Transformers typically spend their time on planets, suns are much more common in their adventures than bare stars.

Earth's Sun

Properly called "Sol," this sun is a frequent target of the Decepticons, who seek to utilize it in various ways, such as tapping into its power, hurling things such as Autobots or the planet Earth into it, or just plain blowing it to smithereens. The Autobots usually stop them in time, but it's almost always a close call.


Sun Facts

  • The Sun is hot.
  • The Sun is large.
  • The Sun is far away.
  • Even when it's out of sight, the Sun shines night and day.
