A binary star system, Alpha Centauri was the first solar system reached by early human colonists. It was discovered that each star had one planet that could support human life and the first human exodus from the Sol system began. During the succession wars Alpha Centauri remained a staunch USF ally both because of its long tradition of cooperation with Sol and because of its very close proximity to it.
