Serpo is the homewold of the Reticulans. It is near the far edge of its star’s habitable zone, so it is a relatively cold world. The star itself is one of a pair of binary stars, but its partner is too far away to provide significant heat to the planet. Much of the water is ice, and a large portion of the land is tundra. The temperate equatorial regions are home to many diverse forms of life. Serpo is home to some of the most advanced laboratories and respected universities in the Cosmos, and many scientific breakthroughs have been discovered here over the millenia.
