A lone system on the south-western edge of the Bard Cluster. It is noted to have rich asteroid deposits.
The first ship to explore the Murf system was the YSS Yukika.
In the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, Murf held little significance to operations other than its brief occupation by the Mishhuvurthyar on their way to attack Hoshi no Iori.

Galetean Belt: One of the largest known asteroid belts in our galaxy. It spans from the outer orbit of Murf III, to just outside the orbital path of Murf IV. The belt consists of primarily Type M asteroids (98.5%), containing high levels of nickel, iron, gold, platinum and other precious metals. The remaining asteroids (2.5%), which are only found in the inner belt, are Type S, which consist primarily of iron and nickel silicates with other precious materials existing in smaller accumulations.
The asteroids located in the central and outer belt are coated with layers of water ice, methane ice, and other volatiles that can sometimes be several hundred meters thick.
The Galetean is a nightmare for even the most experienced starship and armor pilots. Fast moving and colliding asteroids, clouds of crystalline volatiles in the wake of even the smallest bodies, and high levels of radiation cause disruption in operations of sensor and shielding equipment.
