Gannick 22 was a human inner colony.
Gannick 22 was named after the 22 scientists and pioneers from the UNSC Gannick who discovered the planet. These 22 would give their lives to explore a pre-colonized Gannick, prior to the Human-Covenant war. By 2556 the planet had been thoroughly settled, giving rise to large population centers.
