Ganymede (aka Sol Vc) was a natural satellite, or moon, of Jupiter.

It was one of the four so-called Galilean moons (the others were Callisto, Europa and Io) discovered by Galileo Galilei in the 17th century.

A predator native to the moon was the Ganymedian wompbat. (Orion Press: The Dianasian Gift)

The Earth colony Ganymede Triad 6 had been established by the 23rd century. The family of Gretchen Jaeger were residents of the colony. (The Dianasian Gift)

In the Star Fleet Battles continuity, there was only one colony, devoted to mining. It had a population of 1.8 million. (Star Fleet Universe: Gazetteer Based on F&E Map, 14 August 2012 revision)
