History and background[edit]

It is home to a small number of farmers. The system originally had the Vilani name Of Veluishim but was changed once the Solomani reached the world. The subsector administration of the Second Imperium forcibly resettled the Vilani descendant population and reserved the world for families, friends and allies of the victorious government. The Solomani colony was then developed with grants and the introduction of Terran livestock. The world was renamed Bastion to emphasis the rigidity of the Solomani authority and its apparent resilience.

The world however never managed to attract any substantial colonization, and its development all but stopped following a violent solar storm in -278 that scoured the world, killing almost all unprotected life and stripping away a good portion of the atmosphere. A few hardened individuals remain on this world despite the amber zone rating due to the remaining stellar hazard.

By 0, the world still empty of permanent population, it is a member of the Kimalad Empire.

Between the period 180 and 875, Baston served as an Imperial exile world for political prisoners. It was eventually closed down as uneconomic to administer and became the personal fiefdom of the Viisarikaa family
