Taika

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

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.

Tekla V

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

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.

Tenalp

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.

Thalapria

Thalapria used to be an extremely dangerous place, filled with giant sea monsters. Thanks to the sklams' efforts the planet has since become more urbanized, with the sklams making a deliberate effort to create habitats to preserve the remaining sea monsters in caves and chasms for hunting purposes.

Tlahel

Tlahel was a planet colonized only out of necessity and great amounts of convenience. The only planet remotely close to being able to sustain life along a section of a significant trade route, those in the lawless sector built towns and cities on the planet only to help it serve its purpose as a trade station. However, due to the hostile conditions of the surface, nearly every building kept most of its floor space underground, with the biggest of homes and establishments stretching deep under the surface. Tlahel was a society in anarchy yet relative peace, as far as planets in the lawless sector go.

Tok

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.

Transylvaar

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.

Twerpia

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.

Ubertopia

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.

Unity

Uthenia

Vacio-Reino

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.

Valkan

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.

Vehemence

Originally named Modes-Vehemens, Vehemence was the original homeplanet of the darknidows and lightonarchs. During the reign of their supposed god of order, Ebb, darknidows and lightonarchs lived in begrudging harmony. While the darknidows despised Ebb, lived frustrated lives, and eventually turned against him, the lightonarchs were happy with the way their society was and worked to progress science. Many lightonarchs had an interest in space travel, and while their spacecrafts never became advanced enough to leave their galaxy, lightonarchs and darknidows spread across the entire Ninthircle star system.

Vesper

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.

Viparee

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.

Votum

The history of Votum is soaked with bloodshed. The crusade against the heretics, or the extermination of many nulls, it has since calmed. Soul, a messenger holiday remembers these tragic times and commemorates the victories and hardships along the way, being held in all messenger cities. Some say Votum used to be a jungle planet that was blown out of orbit by an asteroid. However it recovered, albeit very far away from its original position.

Wockle

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.
