Ganymede, currently designated Hub-Fortress Aquilla Adamant[2] is a moon of Jupiter and a major shipyard within the Sol System.[1]


Ganymede has a long and troubled history and many ancient long-abandoned laboratories and complexes dwell beneath its surface.[2]

During the Noctis Aeterna Ganymede became Daemonically tainted. In one of the first operations of the Indomitus Crusade the Grey Knights purged the planet. Afterwards it was converted into the first known Hub-Fortress to support the Crusade. Even after the last banishment strikes were hitting home, the Tech-Priests went to work converting the Moon. Orbital Defense Platforms and void yards were moved into its orbits, indomitable fortresses were built on its surface, and miles-long storage hangars were gouged through its bedrock. The Mechanicum drilled near to the moon's core, installing immense Cogitator and data-archive engines while the Adeptus Astra Telepathica built twin Astropathic Stations on its north and south poles. Thereafter, the moon became a major base of the Officio Logisticarum. Ganymede was wholly transformed, renamed Hub-Fortress Aquila Adamant. It now acts as a hub to support the Indomitus Crusade.[2]
