Ganymede is the seventh moon and third Galilean moon outward from Jupiter. The Capital Moon of the Jupiter System Union,[1] it is also the largest satellite in the Solar System.


Colonization of the Galilean moons was mentioned at the end of Battle Angel Alita when Alita and Desty Nova confronted Melchizedek, but their history was expanded on in Last Order.[2]

The first Jovian colony was built on Ganymede in ES 263. It is one of three of the original 16 moons that was not consumed to provide materials for the Toposphere Project because it had become too urbanized to sacrifice, the other two being Callisto and Europa.[3]

Prior to the Block-A Semifinals match of the Tenth Zenith of Things Tournament in ES 591, the Jovians broadcast an announcement throughout their system telling their citizens to watch the match, during which Uruk Sulcus, one of the cities on Ganymede, was shown.
