When the notails visited the cloud, the nebula was teeming with resources, which it still is, but they didn't bother to colonize. The first settlers were the angels, which established many temporary space stations in order to hide from the rest of the galaxy, failing. They were later followed by the many species interested in both earning money by offering shelter to incoming hunters, or by capturing and killing the beasts of the cloud.
One day a lucky aftik discovered that one could surf the dust disk near the clear trails of the planetesimals, bringing more popularity to the cloud.
Adjara was entirely abandoned for most of its history, and was thought to be an inhospitable, overgrown hellhole by almost every major species due to its red super-giant star. Doctor Cortz, self proclaimed mad scientist, bought the entire moon for only one million points, and quickly moved in to conduct experiments on the world. When the scientist died in a lab accident, it fell to the cortz that he created to care for the world.
Aftenia is a very old planet, in terms of the age of its components. It has gone through two incarnations, referred to as Before and Alternate by cosmic geologists. Before was originally coalesced from dust. After it had cooled down from its formation, a rogue planet collided with it directly, shattering both of them. These fragments then coalesced again into two planets, Alternate. Their erratic orbits eventually led them close together, where their gravity merged them and formed Aftenia.
The queolchrost's creators lived on Alphim-Queol. It is theorized that they may have provided some of the basic infrastructure, and possibly even some of the basic piping systems. The queolchrost easily overthrew their creators. After the quolchrost took over, they performed many infrastructure projects which transformed the landscape over many years. The exact timeframe is unknown. All fauna were removed, excluding some easily farmed aquatic specimen, and flora were limited to agricultural zones.
Most of the history of Amkear was lost with the rest of slarym history during the Gastric War. However, large areas of it were struck by biological weapons, rendering areas of the planet completely devoid of life. More recently, the star the planet orbits has neared the end of its life, and has turned into a Red Giant, raising temperatures on the planet drastically and killing most of the plant life on it.
Anatida is a place visited frequent for various things, conflicts, peace, love, friendship, but it is rarely noticed for the curious and peculiar culture of the beings that usually speak QUACK or other similarities of it. It is believed that at the beginning of time, there was a beautiful and unique duckarium in Anatida, without the pots to hide her feelings she wandered Anatida, on a search for a meaning in her life.
Ante-Heyl used to be a lush planet full of cities and towns, but it was refashioned into a research facility after the planet became a desert and most of its life died out. Once the ephemrma met the intergalactic community, the buildings were repurposed again to fit all of the local ephemyrma colony's used books as to try and make money off them. Ante-Heyl doesn't make a lot of profit, but the ephemyrma luckily don't need a lot of money.
Legend has it that long ago, before the apidee, a group of mysterious entities known as the 'Three Mother Bees' arrived on the world. It is said that they engineered a number of bees and bee-like creatures, and radically changed the environment, and that they ultimately created the original apidee from one of these bee species, before suddenly vanishing. Of course, another, arguably more popular legend, holds that a great beast up and died on the planet and that the apidee and all other bees crawled out it's rot, so who can really say whats likely amongst apidee legends.
Civilization on this planet started not when the first major tool was created, but the first time that the creator encountered another of their kind with it. A primitive forest-dweller, they had managed to create something that made survival more plausible, but another still struggling had seen it on display, and the sheer awe that eparai radiated from seeing the tool drove them to seek out others.
This resulted in society starting loose, but each time something new was created it was rapidly reproduced and shared across developing gatherings of clans, which had quickly realized they could begin to feed off one another.
Brimstonair is the site of an ongoing war that has lasted thousands of years. After a "god", most likely an average explorer, gave a king the secret of space travel, tribes began to develop. Then the war began. After hundreds of years, space travel became commonplace, but the tribes were so divided that they just kept fighting. Not much has changed on the planet besides more advanced technology and a few large fortresses, as no species is brave, or stupid, enough to try to end the war and colonize the planet.
Buckingfield was always a place of extreme, but consistent, temperature and large beasts of burden. When the meteor crashed into the planet, a radioactive substance accelerated the dominant beast's evolution, producing the waylends. These waylends would then populate the planet and begin fauna production after settling the era of "camelboys vs aliens". While the outward appearance of the land and the people change by the season, the heart of Buckingfield has been the same, simple place for eons, and it's on course to remain that way for eons more.
Dishonesty, deceit, hot air and flim flam. If anyone says they know the real history of the kouninis they're likely attempting to trick anyone willing to listen to their lies.
The speddari's history is closely aligned with the history of their homeplanet. Cashmoney was used as a garbage dump for money and it worked out great for everyone.
At some forgotten point in time, every inch of the planet was simply forest. Ordinary trees, nothing quite strange, the planet was just strictly forest, with no other sort of diversity. Through some sort of means the species that lived in the branches began discovering clearings of grass. Over time these clearings would become more common and more spacious, the trees giving way, growing farther upwards instead of outwards.
A long time ago, three gods were born. Arlaef, goddess of the earth, Kieme, god of the water, and Etramnael, god of the sky. The three siblings used their powers to create Collmoros, and with it the n'nik and everything they would need to survive. But Enmole, goddess of fire, was left out of the creation, and she grew furious with her siblings. In secret she plotted and planned, spending centuries and yet seconds on her creations before unleashing them on the world.
Originally the planet of Cth'Leoth was inhabited by a species known as the Cth'Leans. They were a people obsessed with the pursuit and sharing of all information, even from dangerous, seemingly anomalous sources. This acceptance of all information, even that steeped in dangerous energy, was so sure that it was even baked into their language. They seemed to be fairly happy with their situation overall, until the Fear Era, when the notails arrived, and sickness wiped out their entire species.
This planet was originally colonized to raise a large amount of meg on a suitable and otherwise uninhabited planet. Operations were set up by the Meg Farmer's Council, and at least half the planet was covered in meg farms, leading to a rather profitable source of income for the company. A small town was also built to support the farmhands living there, and to serve as a friendly refueling point to anyone who stopped there. Eventually, the agnivyr who led the efforts to build the farmland was named head of operations of the planet, and earned a large profit margin from the products sold.
Demioti was once a lush planet, full of life and the homeworld of the now extinct quotillics. It is believed to have been the center of their command and military operations, given how extensively it was destroyed. It is unknown exactly how or why, but at some point in time a species that was hostile towards the quotillics invaded the planet and fired some sort of WMD at it, which completely obliterated a large chunk of it.
Originally founded to be a rich benefactors private home planet, doulea quickly became a trade and barter location as the rich benefactor died before construction could begin on their home. Unfortunately their will did not leave the planet to any one specific person or group, so the planet was auctioned off to the highest bidder: The KORN group. KORN, or as they are more commonly known, The Keres Organized Racketeers' Network, bought the planet under the false name of KARN, or Keres Associative Rest-Stop Network.
Drakellar has the distinction of being one of the first vampwelf colonies to be established, and as with most things vampwelf such an occasion cannot simply go by without some tale of debatable accuracy. While the Velsteins, a minor family affiliated with the Von Elzensteins, were the primary sponsors of the colonization, they were accompanied by the Count Vladdas Drakalar. Vladdas was once a member of a notable branch family of house von Drakken, but had been exiled for practices considered too abominable even for the vampwelf.

Once, a very long time ago, Eciton was the jewel of it's solar system; large, temperate, covered in large, fertile grasslands and forests with rolling hills and mountains, inhabited by a highly intelligent species of peaceful, bug-like aliens. These aliens lived in giant, underground communes, and relied on each other to survive. Every day, they thanked their god for gifting them their friends and family, and for the lovely lands they lived under.
One day, their god answered them.
Nobody knows how The Door got there, and it is unlikely anyone will ever figure out who put it there, if it was even put there by someone.
Originally a no-name backwater, similarly colonized by a bunch of hard-nosed no-name colonists who just wanted to get away from people. At some point, an esteemed, and mildly eccentric musician and business owner moved onto the planet, and was inspired by the electrical atmosphere, to build a club on the planet. He invited some of the most famous musicians of the day to his club, which attracted fans of their music, and things quickly snowballed from there. In but a few short centuries, the planet became the booming, glowing urb it is today.
Rumours of the origins of this mysterious space-station range from an abandoned notail experimental facility built for the purpose of experimenting with prunus DNA, to a former athonae colony meant to defend against the abominations unleashed by the notail on the universe. The few extremely resourceful hackers and spies have over time gleamed valuable tidbits of data which seem to indicate the station and it's inhabitants have been engineered from the ground up with a very precise purpose: to counter and cleanse any and all outbreaks of the clockwork virus.
Enys was first discovered in the early spacefaring days of the soledade. A wholly unoccupied and beautiful world easily suitable for farming, Enys soon became home to a number of isolated soledades that fell in love with the untouched paradise.
Of course, it was not to last. Opportunistic outsiders, seeing tremendous potential for residential development in a mostly uninhabited and mild world, soon began construction of many communities all over the planet.
The unknown ancient species who built it did not let the fact that they had not invented faster-than light travel prevent them from strip-mining the surrounding fifty planetary systems and bringing all their metals to its construction, which is estimated to have taken several million years. Where they went when they were done is anyone's guess. They were probably tired.
Little is known about the planet itself, other then before the notails appeared, a species known as the tailed ones lived on it. They were wiped out, as legends go, by the notails. Fossil records show that there does not appear to be any sort of ancestor to the notail, but due to how quickly and strangely things evolve on the planet, many species have missing links.
The notails quickly took claim to the planet, and were able to set up many safe spots, including a forest filled with deadly creatures for their young to test their skills in.
Originally founded by one, Z0KBG, F4-C3BK was created to essentially become a "secondary homeworld" for the tweeps. A planet that fit the ideals for tweeps to live in, plenty of access to coffee, cute animals, peaceful areas for rest, a corruption free non government system, and most importantly one of the fastest free internet in all the known universe.
The creation of this "secondary homeworld" was originally met with concern from various parties.
Fleedora's history is death.
Fleedora was first explored by groups of tourists from nearby Puerto. This resulted in many of them dying, but not in the good way that tourists sometimes die, and the planet being advertised as "a wash, really" and "worth skipping."
The toreka had not moved beyond simple tool use, or for that matter beyond the shelter of their little cluster of lagoons, until the early AI era when a fleet of downed spacecraft caught their imaginations.
The technology on board, including a Selene unit who was sufficiently undamaged by the crash to be eventually reactivated, accelerated the toreka's cultural advancement.
Freco-ofit initially began as a conceptual project between a group of prunus scientists wondering if it was possible to create a communally geared planet out of a barren one. At the start, a single, self-sustaining colony pod was landed. It was then operated until a second pod was landed, and the two connected. Anyone was welcome to join, regardless of their grouping, as long as they could supply their own atmosphere, and connect to the primary colony pod.
Nobody knows when it was first truly discovered as the farther back one goes in the timeline the more vague and difficult to track down the rumors get. The name "ghoulog" was established as an idea that those who died in shipwrecks crewed the fleet, and while it inevitably became a matter of fact the name has stuck.
Ages ago the planet, still at this point a temperate, verdant, paradise of a planet, was settled by the quelan. This colony went quite well for a number of years, before an industrial cosmetics company who's name has been forgotten by history, set up shop on the planet. This company was, to put it delicately, inconsiderate, of the native wildlife, and allowed their factories to spew torrents of polluting, corrosive chemicals into the environment.
Hazmeat was earmarked on discovery as an obvious anomaly, forgotten about after initial materials testing of its rubbery "skin" showed superb resilience, including extreme heat and cold resistance, but no clear way to harvest it.
Hazmeat's true value was only discovered after an incident with a smuggler and a hastily-dumped collection of museum-quality skeletons.
Years ago, Helmutzi once served as a bustling trading hub and rest stop for crews from all walks of life. The uutzi's technological and engineering know-how, paired with their seemingly endless supply of replacement parts and scrap gave Helmutzi a reputation as a lucky find for struggling crews, somewhere to get their ships repaired within days or even hours before heading off to new adventures. The strange, cult-like Risen kept to themselves, and things were good.
Hozirus first attracted the attention of the xenoarcheological community, when one Horus A. Bamblethrope, a noted huss member of the xenoarcheological society, had crash landed on the planet while on an unrelated trip. He left a log of his perilous days spent on the planet, evading horrible desert monsters, and marveling at the architectural wonder of the pyramids. Horus, alas, did not survive, He was found approximately two weeks later when a rescue team finally found his ship, but his journal was intact, and his flamboyant and elaborate descriptions of the pyramids lit a fire in the hearts of xenoarcheologists the universe over.

The cold and inhospitable planet presently labeled "Icekatraz" was for most of its history, precisely that, a cold, horrible, curiosity ignored by most due to a general lack of usefulness. Things changed when the private security firm, SecuriTek, was looking around for a location to establish a brand new High-Security prison colony.
Inteligo is the home world of the kaikians, however in an event known as the Crash, all technology on the planet failed for unknown reasons. This lead to most of the cities being overrun by the aggressive fauna on the planet, leaving the planet almost entirely deserted. It holds little strategic value because of this, and was mostly left unscathed by the First War and Muikian Revolt. A few attempts have been made to reclaim the planet, though all have failed for a variety of reasons.
Inverso is an artificial structure, that much is quite abundantly clear. But how old it is, who built it, how they built it, and why they built it are all unknown.
Virtually everything about its origins has proven frustratingly opaque to investigation. After employing dozens of methods of dating, all attempts to determine Inverso's age have only narrowed it as far down as 'older than a hundred thousand years, younger than a billion years', with the best guesses putting it between ten and a hundred million years old.
The park was commissioned by founder and conservationist Zken Cherti after a conflict involving his last park, between the authorities of the planet, and his vision. Thus, Zken decided to have his next project be in neutral space, with no other authority but his own over it. While he has long since passed, he left a charter the park must follow, first and foremost being that all people must be allowed to enter the park at no cost.
Jaron has had a relatively uneventful history, as the itzels themselves are an uneventful species. The biggest event in recent, relatively speaking, years is the advancement of itzels to the Space Age, and the subsequent influx of outside culture and religion.
Ages ago, the planet, still as unassuming and unimportant as ever, was fortunate enough to be the sight of a massive battle between two factions of a long forgotten alien race. History does not note who won, but their battle resulted in untold amounts wrecked ships and scrap raining down on the planet, setting the tone for the planet's future.
Sometime thereafter, the notail discovered the planet. Swiftly concluding that the planet must be some sort of garbage dump, they proceeded to use it as such.
The K-RAD stations were originally launched with the sole intention of preventing Kaikian history and technologies from being lost, in the event of another data wipe as seen in the Crash. In order to maximize the use of the materials used to launch these stations, however, it was decided during development that the stations would be equipped with laboratories in addition to the databases. They were launched for 50 years following the First War, with the final station being launched only a few weeks after the Kailai Confederacy made contact with the notails.
Kachkan was originally called XT-341, but after Notails achieved spaceflight technology and discovered this planet somebody decided it needed a more fun name. For whatever reason, it stuck. When it first was colonized, notails set up rigs to process and collect the unrefined fuel-like substance on the planet. Up to that point it was considered little more than a simple project but after several years more rigs were set up, which led to the creation of the Fuel Hubs.
Kuppas evolved a natural attractant and method of killing their prey, the many walking plants that live on the planet. Said prey never seemed to catch on to this, some practically jumped into their heads, so farming was never much of a concern. The real concern was what to do with the excess blood from this perfect lure/weapon, eventually leading to the "blood age" in which nearly everything they made involved coffee at some point in its production.
KCC-6-A was constructed almost immediately after the First War to replace the now useless Inteliga as kaikian central command. It has a long history, however most of it is simple politics and a few scientific breakthroughs that occurred on the station. The station was attacked during the Muikian Revolt, and many thought that the station was going to fall, however the prowess of its many EMP turrets were vastly underestimated. The entire attack force suffocated, and their ships reclaimed by the kaikian forces. It has never been directly attacked since. It was, however, nearly destroyed five times due to various research projects gone wrong.
Long ago, the planet Kivver was a relatively peaceful place. The native malrus, though primitive, lived in harmony. Malrus harmony that is, it involved a lot of drinking and fighting, many a habitual war was had between the malrus tribes in those days, but all was well. Then "they" came.
No one truly knows who "they" are, as the malrus are lacking in records of this time outside of oral stories, but it is known that they came with ill-intent.
When drakons used to live on the ground they used to be live in peace with both malevolents and enlightened drakons, but as more malevolents were made the drakons were forced to take to the sky to avoid the wrath of their "stupider" family.
Worst yet, the "cousins" of drakons, the dragons, felt that drakons were invading their domain by taking to the skies and now attack any enlightened drakons and cities they see.
Lauzurek was once an industrial world, one of the greatest centers of production in the galaxy. Virtually the entire surface was given over to vast factory complexes, with mines to fuel them tunneling deep beneath the surface and covering the seafloor. Even the planet's tiny, solitary moon was hollowed out for resources and turned into a massive space station. Despite the incredible scale, only a few tens of millions of organic people called Lauzurek home. It was almost entirely automated, a virtual skeleton crew of supervisors overseeing vast arrays of robots and AI outnumbering them close to a thousand to one.
In the aftermath of the AI rebellions, as the galaxy began to rebuild, great resources were poured into the development of sub- sapient robotics to try and fill some of the gaps. Among the results of these efforts was the development of drone freighters capable of plying the spaceways without either biological or AI crew, as long as they stuck to the most well charted routes and had the support of ground control during takeoff or landing.

The oblein were first to discover Mare, and performed assorted experiments on its marine fauna which led to the creation of the selachim as a species. The selachim were granted independence on request, and entered several centuries of isolation until broadcasting a request for assistance and resources to build themselves kicking rad new robot bodies.
Putley history is shrouded in mystery but what is known is that their moons and their star were worshiped as gods. When thoughts on who god, or the gods were the putley were happy to accept each others beliefs, or at least respect it. The putley home world has been in a state of constant peace for its entire history.
The arma homeworld wasn't always ruled by the armas. Long ago there lived a species called the brodskul, large crow like birds whose head was a covered in a hard skull. From the very moment the brodskuls could pick up a stick and swing it around, they have been in an endless war. The brodskuls adopted the armas as holy animals, possibly one of the few things the brodskuls could agree on.
The planet of Merciaa was littered with abandon towns and cities before the event known as World Peace happened.
Moirseme was discovered by a weary captain and an even more exhausted crew of 2 when their ship broke down and they went in search of rations and fuel on the closest planet to them. The three disembarked and found that the ponds were not of normal water, and the captain became entranced with the pond's ability to reflect his memories. She was able to relive her happiest moments from youth, and after sending a distress signal, the captain invited their saviors to look into the Moirseme ponds. The distress signal respondents found themselves also highly entertained by the pond's abilities, and left Moirseme only to bring back their families and friends to witness the delights of nostalgia and revisitation.
Long long ago the Heredoggo roamed the ocean floors and the surface of the world. Then they got hungry. Because of their rare but massive hunger they had to adapt how they gathered resources quickly, and after many periods of famine they had found perfected methods to farm the life on their planet enmasse, along with the life they found elsewhere in their system, and that of the neighboring systems they made colonies on, and any life that comes into contact with them, or the livestock traded to them.
When tweeps first made their rise, they came together to agree that they should be split for their own good. The tweeps got in clans, and then soon built walls that covered the whole planet. Ages would go by until the great Social Wars would happen, and parts of those walls would fall. Clans broke apart, and soon the tweep had left their planet for the stars. Only one clan remained, the spacers.
Due to each species living on naturis spending the majority of their lives confined to their own biome, be it out of choice or necessity or even lack of interest toward the rest of the world, each species spent a large amount of time disconnected from one another.
The first encounter between species is a topic of conflicting stories, the malventus believe that they were the first species to discover other life on naturis in the form of the nautalids. The first meeting between malventus and nautalid was tense to say the least.
One of the first groups of planets discovered by the notails, the first explorers didn't find this world exciting nor valuable enough to attempt setting up more bases. They left, leaving only a handful of colonists to study the still mostly unknown origins of life. Apart from that, the history is entirely unremarkable, except for the discovery of a grass that can be converted to biofuel but can only survive on NP-572893, and some disappearances in the field.
The history of O'Clair prior to the opening of the lockbox is largely unknown. What little is known, illustrates that neither O'Clair nor the oomn were pitiable little balls of sorrow they are today, though how and when that changed isn't know to anyone, least of all the oomn. The establishment of the lockbox itself is also a mystery, who built it, and why, though it is theorized that those two mysterious events may be connected, though nothing definitive is known.
Prior to the vaeri, Oerson was idyllic, if rather out of touch with reality, as most creatures were less than predatory, most creatures lived peacefully alongside each-other. Then the vaeri came and screwed up the place real good, it would be some centuries before the coming of the "Great Unifier", Ugeniux, forced the psychotic weirdos to get their act together and not completely destroy their planet, this period was known as "The Age of Dark Science".
Afterwards things became relatively quiet, by vaeri standards, with the most notable thing to come after being "The Great Moon Crusade" where vaeri, who had fled to the moon during the troubled times before the Unification, invaded the planet.
Once the piscipleus evolved beyond water, clans began to develop. The largest clan was under the rule of the regal pleu, Ranger Finnley. She believed that after establishing presence in the air, it was only right for pleus to progress by fraternizing with the ground. Ranger developed a system of mining that extracted rare ores for her followers to use, causing her popularity to boom.
Eventually, her numbers had grown too large to maintain on her own. Ranger assigned related representatives hundreds of pleus to colonize the land for her.
The history of the Alpha-2 craft is shockingly well documented, unlike almost all other quotillic history. The craft was a prototype vessel that was built by the qoutillics in order to assist in "piercing through the Veil." It was in development for 5 years before a functioning prototype was constructed, which was a vessel known as the Alpha-1. This earlier vessel, however, was rendered completely inoperable during its first combat operation. The Alpha-2 vessel followed this first craft, though it was far superior in almost every way. It successfully destroyed the first colony it was matched against, however on the way to its next target it was abandoned for unknown reasons.
Once a dangerous and overgrown landscape filled with treacherous terrain and deadly fauna, Pacoficus has been completely reformed thanks to a spectacular industrial revolution hosted by the pagepohs. Culture developed faster than machinery, and demanded that cities rise and entertainment be provided on such a planet, and so it was. In a very short time, pagepohs adapted the landscape to suit their growing commercialism, and have turned the planet into a staple of commerce, where both luxury and thrills are never more than a stone's throw away.
The settlement was founded in 4138 by the Pan-colonial Emergency Response Force ("Budryft Rangers") as a stationary base to provide support and fuel for the recently completed "HQ". Details about the HQ's past before this point are currently classified.
In 4144, while the base that would later be called "Pfort Hope" was under construction, the HQ went to Bekeha, where PERF famously saved the town of Bekehasid from undead forces.
The discovery of Planet Z was a more recent event. As it is known, a small crew of four and their somnus unit had found their ship low on fuel, with the last planet too far off behind them, they only had the choice of the next planet ahead, which happened to be Planet Z. On completely unknown territory, the four had reportedly 'split up to cover more ground' in the search for locals and possibly a fuel stop. Easily mistaken as a species overtaken by rampant disease, the crew were initially very distrusting, and even fearful of the locals which had welcomed them with anxious open arms.
Once a planet completely covered in water, over time the ocean of a planet dried into a partially water covered planet. It's indigenous species eventually evolved to this change, while most still retain traits like gills and fins the gondii eventually moved up onto land with it's primary hosts. Ploaxomats has always somehow averted danger over the time that it's existed, many others referring it to a ticking time bomb as, sooner or later, some highly aggressive species will realize that taking advantage of a planet of pacifists would be incredibly easy.
Polaber was quite warm and was covered in a deep tropical ocean, flourishing with sea-life. The wactite with their biological terraforming created huge clusters of shell-spikes upon shell-spikes in towering spires and gigantic reefs. This had the inadvertent effect of building up an incredibly thick atmosphere with the gasses created as a byproduct of wactite decay, which quickly led to a global ice age, killing the entirety of the species and freezing many alive.
Polika was originally discovered by the kaikians shortly after the First War, and was thoroughly explored shortly after. The scouting team, unfortunately, landed during the winter on the planet, and assumed that it was a safe world for a colony. The planet was marked for a civilian colony and a few months later one was constructed. This colony, named Trelik, did not last long.
When spring came, so did the pollen. The colony was gravely unprepared for such an event and the majority of its citizens perished during the first pollen bloom.
Tourist history is nearly non existent. When asking a tourist what their home planet and history are they commonly say it is boring, or that it's not worth talking about because it's nowhere near as exciting as the history of the place they're about to visit. What little is known about the history of the tourist comes from looking at their home planet. The home planet of the tourists is covered in ruins of a large civilization.
Q - T
The planet of Rangohl was an unassuming rock in space up until it was discovered to contain a windfall of valuable metals. It rapidly became a prosperous mining colony, attracting prospectors far and wide. But as is often the case with these things, eventually the boom went bust, coupled with the rather hostile fauna of the planet, encouraged a rather rapid cessation of mining activities on the planet.
Ask one of its inhabitants and one will get one of a million different stories of that place's history. Each story contains a grain of truth to it for the book's greater truth.
While much of Scchllrvrth's history may never be recovered, this much is known: it has always been a fiery hellscape. Many theorize that, within the next couple thousand years, the planet's core may become so hot that even the fireproof kheiron may no longer be able to live on it. With this in mind, the kheiron population on their home planet has steadily declined as more would leave to find a hopefully suitably heated replacement home.
Before the advent of space travel, the world was rather quiet and unassuming. The didaskaloi had long developed a peaceful, enlightened society that scorned the violence that so often leads to turmoil in other societies. Then the world was visited by a delegation of travelers from beyond the stars. Many didaskaloi decided to join these travelers to see the stars for themselves. When they returned, they brought tales of the wonders, and horrors, from beyond their world.
"It is believed that at the start of the universe the great progenitors and precursors, the isments, lived on this world in an endemic paradise alongside their floating pyramid headed pets. A great tragedy occurred on this planet, and the eden and it's bounty began to fade, and the people of the world were sent into famine. Tragedy upon tragedy continued to happen, but the people remained steadfast and built massive necropolises and grain silos to adapt to the changing world. Eventually they went extinct, and for some reason their pets float in an orbital cloud around the planet. Our precursors, the creators of this universe, may be extinct, but their knowledge will save us." - The Thesis Statement of some archaeology student.
The history of the planet can be summed up in to one sentence. Just a whole lot of feuding sheep. No one on the planet bothers attempting to record history, as much of it will be twisted, rewritten, and sometimes chained to a block of concrete and tossed in to the waters.
Smoltek has little history itself, but is notable for being the site of one of the biggest scams in navigational history, when the discoverer managed to sell the planetary rights to a "Unique and diverse bio-ecological wonderland" to a viedafo conservationist group, before vanishing with the very large amount of money they gave her. Now only stubborn employees of that group and people who don't want to be found by the police live here.
The surface of Snowdown was once a rocky, frigid and barren wasteland. Over the years, various species have worked together to crash large ice comets into the planet in order mine them for the precious metals.
The planet of Soil was a very unassuming planet discovered by E-4000, known to his friends as Billy. After some initial scans, Billy concluded that the planet was uninhabited and began colonization procedures, aiming to claim the planet for the notail. After several weeks of this, the colonists noticed that trees seemed rather strange, alive even. And then people started vanishing.
Only a few at first, but then several, and then many.
The planet known today as Soloasta was first colonized around 2950-3050 by a group seeking to start a place for them to practice their beliefs in peace. They settled down in nice, calm spot between a lake and a hill, and so their new home of Serene Hill.
It remained small and rustic for a couple centuries, until an enterprising young Molc Hani'ye arrived, and turned things around, making the town into a thriving lake-side vacation spot, and eventually growing it out into a small city in as little as two centuries.
The "skeleton war" took place here, and that's all anyone is willing to say on the matter. The bloops who still live on the planet either don't know, don't want to say, or in some cases don't know how to speak. The event caused all common spoopers to leave the planet, leaving behind bloops and no usable skeletons save for some too large for anything but a pumpkin patch, but that's all that is known.
Sumwher was first discovered when it had suddenly replaced another planet seemingly instantly in a well-known area of space. When people were trying to recorded this strange, new planet, it had suddenly disappeared and re-appear elsewhere, orbiting a nearby gas giant. After the strange nature of Sumwher was discovered and the possibility of life was as well, both settlers and businessmen began migrating onto the planet.
There has never been any war on Taialnondemi. The reason is simple; if the mialcsem were to have a war it's very likely they would come back with more mialcsem than they sent out. There would also be too much worrying about which side has to take care of the child - a war on Taialnondemi would slowly become one huge child custody battle.
Thus, with such deterrents keeping the mialcsem from engaging in all-out physical battles, their society became focused more upon verbal warring.
The history of Taiaptor is foggy at best. From fossil records it is clear that at one point the planet was populated by a lot more than birds, in fact it had a high variety of living beings on it, then suddenly, nearly everything died out. From the records, it seems something very strange started growing aggressively across the whole planet, a fungus. It spread everywhere, even in the coldest of places, and at the same time it spread, everything around it would die out.
The planet lacks in any war-useful materials, and so was sold for relatively cheap. A small coven of witches, looking for a safe and neutral place to practice their magic, decided to work together to save up enough money to buy the planet. Once there, they realized the odd calming effect that the planet had on their familiars, and the abundance of otherwise worthless minerals that the planet had hidden beneath its surface. They set up a small colony near the planet's equator, and word quickly spread of the now-named planet.
Tayrada was not always a freezing deathscape. Although it was always cold, millions of years ago it used to be to the point where complex life could still survive on the surface. However, for reasons still unknown, Tayrada's star began cooling rapidly and a mass extinction occurred. Anything that neither adapted nor moved to a volcanic vent perished, including most of the chiraam's evolutionary ancestors.
Ages ago the planetoid was dismissed as being 'an uninhabited eyesore orbiting a worthless fart ball'. At some point a passing ship on a "adventure of wonderment and merriment", experienced an obscure mechanical failure and crashed on the planet. The survivors of this crash quickly discovered, that the planet was not, in fact, uninhabited, as they were promptly captured by the local catlas. Among these survivors, was a young geckrecaun named Vancek Uchins, discovered a "really sweet hat", and then, in an entirely unrelated turn of events, managed to sway the "savage locals" to their side, and used them to establish the foundations of what would become 'Uchins Resort Co. LLC.'.
Tektonne was a booming center of barter and trade in its early days. A regular amount of greenery covered its peaceful surface, and though many stalls and shops lined the walkways, wide areas were left for homes and recreational quarters. After the notail race discovered the dominant species of the planet, the peaceful metaparxi, they ravished the land and made the environment significantly more industrial.
The generics once sought to expand their galactic empire, finding uninhabited worlds with ideal climates to be converted to generic Planets. One such planet was identified in a relatively unknown system, and the generics did as they usually do, sending massive ships full of generic citizens to colonize the planet and make it identical to all of the others.
After Tok's initial discovery, it's strangeness attracted many clockwork specialists, and a debate was held as to whether it should immediately be incinerated. Eventually, it was decided that its research potential outweighed the risk, and a station was set up nearby, but Tok was otherwise ignored by the universe at large. Then, one day, one of the dryads reached out to the researchers and began communicating with them. Their name was Rellgow. Up until that point, all attempts at negotiation had ended with the negotiators' integration, and it had generally been thought to be a lost cause. Unlike their fellows, however, Rellgow saw an outside alliance as a possible edge over their enemies.
The dark and bleak moon of Transylvaar was not always dark or bleak. Once it was bright, warm, and inviting. In those days came a species called the svlanoi, an peaceful agrarian folk who worked hard and honest, and spread across the land. In another world they might've grown to join the universe of the own accord, but it was not meant to be, for from cloaked and shadowed corners of the world came another race, the vampwelf. While few know where the vampwelf came from for certain, one legend states that they came from "The Dark Isle" an island that to this very day is ever cast in concealing fogs and lingering under the shadow of dark clouds.
Besides the parasite epidemic which rocked their early developmental progress, Twerpia has only had one other major early conflict, that of unifying their species. Before they were united, various different tribes of twerps wandered the tundra, consisting of only a handful of female leaders. After several hundred years of occasional conflict, one female by the name of Lian Gonfold gathered several different tribes with the expressed purpose of unification, and settled the early twerpian capital of Morpulous as her base of operations.

Once upon a time the unidolencians crawled from tidepools onto the shores of an edenic tropical world. They learned, laughed, loved, and most of all lost. This led them to search for the best way to live their lives, and through their enduring hope they created utopia. As the desires of their guests changed so too did the planet. From where there were hundred-millions miles of tropical beach came arcologies and megastructure projects to retrofit and terraform the planet from the inside out. Flora, fauna, and even dirt were purchased and transported for the sake of creating the destinations we've come to know as our home, and love sharing with citizens of the universe like yourself.
Vacio-Reino was originally discovered by a notail expedition that was promptly lost and never heard from again. When a second expedition was sent and never heard from again, a third and final expedition was sent by a variety of high ranking officials.
They were also never heard from again.
History is written by the winners, as such, Valkan history has been dramatized and embellished every which way, to the point where very little of it lines up with facts anymore. What is fairly obvious is that much of the volkronn's success is owed to them having sold out their planet's abundant resources. Large portions of the planetary crust have been mined out and shipped elsewhere, leaving much of the planet hollow and cavernous beneath the surface. Valkan wasn't always covered in desert, the owners saw to that through generations of polluting and exploiting the environment.
Vesper was long ignored due to the impracticalities of settling on a planet with no actual land to settle upon. Eventually it was prospected as a prominent source of a key component of starship fuel, and so a bold startup energy corporation bought colonization rights to the planet. They established many floating gas-mines dipping down into the lower-atmosphere. Of course, as these tales go, times went lean, as the more easily accessed sources of fuel gradually dwindled, and the economy gradually declined.
An unassuming white rock, Viparee, or VP-408-1 as it was known then, was deemed the perfect place to build and test superweapon by a team of vaeri scientists. So they bunkered down and established their labs and factories, at some point building a massive superlaser and blowing up the moon. Over time, other morally dubious scientists with an itch for destruction on a planetary scale flocked to the world and established their own labs and factories, and they further attracted scientists who were merely unscrupulous.
Wockle has always been an untouched rainforest planet teeming with life. Originally, the tockhau were a prey species until they evolved to be adept at music, which repelled their predators. Free to thrive, they eventually developed a civilization and a musical culture, and established many tribes and settlements throughout the planet. No colonization took place however, as the tockhau believe in living in harmony with nature.
Xik's history is mostly unknown, as it was constructed before the Crash, most of the data regarding the colony has been lost. What is known is that it was originally colonized by the kaikians as a defensive post on the fringes of their territory.
At some point in time, however, the planet swapped ownership to the quotillic for reasons unknown.
Yeehaw was colonized by a group of overexcited apidees and aftiks with a love of westerns, and a vaguely defined disrespect for conventional law enforcement. Mostly they thought it would be fun to build a wild west styled town somewhere that nobody could stop them from going all-out.
Eventually some more civic-minded individuals joined them to help them build actual infrastructure. It did turn out that the idea was popular. The law-light cowboy lightstyle was appealing to many.
Like many life-bearing planets with molten interiors, Zygote's history has been tumultous. Near-constant seismic and volcanic activity and a volatile climate cycle have both shaped and culled the life on its surface until quite recently on an evolutionary scale. Although some speculations suggest that life only began to spread on land less than a billion years ago, it is also possible that a number of mass extinctions is responsible for the relative lack of biodiversity among the planet's terrestrial organisms at present--particularly the lack of large land animals.
