Jupiter had many moons, including Io, Japetus, (PROSE: Legacy), Ganymede (PROSE: Jupiter), Europa (AUDIO: The Defectors), Voga, (TV: Revenge of the Cybermen), Carme, Callirrhoe, Umbriel, Callisto, Thebe and Leda. (PROSE: To the Slaughter)
Prior to the emergence of human civilisation on Earth, a sentient race known as the Jovians evolved on Jupiter. At some point prior to his fifth incarnation, the Doctor visited Jupiter during this era and later told his companions Tegan Jovanka and Turlough that the Jovians had had a beautiful civilisation which had created entirely in their minds. He described the process as being similar to whale song. The Doctor believed that the Jovians had become extinct by the 24th century. (AUDIO: The Jupiter Conjunction)
At some stage, the Sol system was given a "spring cleaning" which entailed removing most of Jupiter's moons and leaving the largest twelve. Some of the moons that were destroyed were Carme, Callirrhoe, Umbriel, Callisto, Thebe and Leda. (PROSE: To the Slaughter)
Jupiter was eventually colonised by humanity. Following the achievement of independence from Earth, the colonists' government became known as the Jupiter Axis. In 2329, the Axis signed a peace agreement with Earth, ending years of tension between the two powers. In the immediate aftermath of the treaty, the surviving Jovians revealed their existence to humanity. (AUDIO: The Jupiter Conjunction)
