Across the vastness of space.....
The planetdex hosts all the info needed on not only planets, but also celestial bodies, important places, and other things such as space bases.
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.
The story varies depending on who tells it, but the message is the same. Something hit Homoakata, and it changed practically everything on the planet. The planet has been theorized to have held a more diverse palette of species on it before. But then a great extinction took place, taking the lives of many and destroying the traces of their history. The most common theory being a meteorite storm.
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.
