Once a thriving if anonymous Nietzschean colony world and trade center, Hephaestus IV achieved notoriety as the site of the first battle of the Nietzschean Uprising (see Literature: The Nietzschean Betrayal). It's unclear whether the Nietzscheans actually moved or created the small black hole in Hephaestus or took advantage of an existing natural occurrence, but the wandering singularity proved to be an excellent ruse to gather an enormous battle fleet and destroy large numbers of High Guard capital ships. By the time Hephaestus IV was torn apart by the black hole's gravitational stresses in CY 9811, the planet's original population had long since evacuated. The Hephaestus black hole remains in the system, and was most recently the site of several experiments conducted by a Sinti research group and Andromeda Ascendant crew into quantum entanglement-related phenomena.
