This is a list of planets in the wormhole Nexus, from Aslund to Zoave Twilight.

Dagoola IVEdit

Site of a Cetagandan prisoner of war camp that suffered a mass breakout with the aid of the Dendarii Free Mercenary Fleet.

EarthEdit

Highly advanced and heavily populated, Earth was not well situated in the nexus; in spite of its history and wealth, it did not play an important role in Nexus affairs. There were hints of catastrophic changes in its history, such as mutated animals and insects, and greatly elevated sea level.

EscobarEdit

A wealthy and advanced planet, Escobar was situated somewhere between Sergyar and Beta Colony. Various personal and place names suggest it was founded by a Latin culture. The Barrayaran Imperium attempted to invade Escobar with disastrous results.
