- "Hope" may also refer to the renamed Felicia III, a freighter of the Kingdom of Torch.
Hope was a planet in Sector 12 of the Solarian League, and was at one time occupied by the Alphane civilization. As a human world, it was originally named Salamis until the Teutonic Order took it and renamed it Haupt. The pronunciation then decayed until it became Hope.
For a while it was the capital of the Orders’s four-system empire, but soon sank into neo-barbarism. After being rediscovered, it was joined into the Solarian League and governed by the Liaison Service.
