Ithaka is a water world in the Kephallenia Region, an area of space named for the transcription of a Zintar word meaning "Home away from Home". About five hundred years ago, the Zintar race arrived in Hellenic space and chose this region as their new home in Hellenic Space, and settled upon the planet Ithaka due to how much it reminded them of their own homeworld. While the Zintar inhabit the entire region, they have adopted Ithaka as their homeworld, building great cities underneath the surface of the water, and using massive lighthouse like structures to allow entry into their cities for those who cannot breathe underwater.
Ithaka is also the legendary homeworld of the Hellene hero Odysseos, who settled on the world of Ithaka long before the Zintar arrived. However, since no evidence remains of Odysseos settling on Ithaka, many nearby regions have laid claim to being the home of the legendary hero.
