Rostov is a star system in the Vega Sector. As of April 2654, it was neutral or uncontrolled but was located in Confederation space. The system contains the planet Rostov III, which is a jungle planet home to a race of primitive sentients, the Mopoks. Due to this fact, the Terran Confederation refused to colonize the planet, except for scientific missions.
The Kilrathi attempted to enslave the Mopoks and exploit Rostov's natural resources in 2654. The TCS Tiger's Claw was dispatched to the system to aid in its defense. Some of the missions preformed by the Tiger's Claw included:
- Several patrols of the system on 2654.280.
- The investigation of several bogies, one of which turns out to be a Ralari-class destroyer on 2654.285.
- The investigation of another bogey, which turned out to be a Fralthi-class cruiser on 2654.286.
Rostov was eventually liberated and the Mopoks themselves aided the Terrans in the capture of several stranded Kilrathi marines.
