An S3 Planet (Solar Three Planet) was the Space Corps designation for any planetoid or planetary body in the Galaxy that has a similar atmosphere and conditions to Earth.

ClassificationEdit

The classification evokes the placing and conditions of the homeworld of humans as the third planet from its star, within the habitable zone, the same as Earth in its own solar system.

However, an S3 Planet does not have to necessarily be the third planet from its star to fall into the designation, or even be a planet at all, as long as it can support human life on the surface. An S3 Planet could be a whole planet, a moon, or even an asteroid, if the planetary body has enough gravitational pull to hold onto a suitable atmosphere.

List of S3 planetoids encountered by the crew of Red DwarfEdit

There were several other planets visited by the Dwarfers, but they were not shown or mentioned explicitly to be S3 planets. There were also several crashed vessels and bases on planetary surfaces, but the atmospheres breathed by the crew may have been from the ship or base rather than the planet itself.

Non S3 PlanetsEdit

An example of a non-S3 planet visited by the Boys from the Dwarf would be Traga 16.
