Hellespont is a star system in the Vega Sector with a Terran agricultural colony; after the Pilgrim War it was occupied by 82,000 unarmed assimilated Pilgrims.
It seems that "Hellespont" refers both to a star system and its colonized planet.
It was also the home of the Hellespont Naval Station. The CS Iason was stationed on Hellespont before departing for its fateful last mission in 2638.
Around the time of the Terran-Kilrathi War a Kilrathi carrier group attacked and destroyed the settlement.
