Jovia XII is home to a species of shapeshifting biomorphs, the Jovians. Little else is known about the location, though scans suggests a possible connection between the biomorphs and the Bounty Hunter Gandrayda. This area is also the producer of a special type of steel. Jovian steel is extremely hard; even the most heavy weaponry cannot destroy it. This metal was used in the construction of Base Sector Zero on Norion.


  • In real life, "jovian" is the adjectival form of the god or planet Jupiter, much like "martian" is the adjectival form of Mars. A Gas giant planet might also be called a Jovian planet by astronomers.
