Point of Interest: Ministry of Colonization Training Base at Egypt
Egypt has been selected for a Ministry of Colonization training base; it has domes containing simulated environments, with the final test being survival on Egypt's surface with its insidious (hydrogen) atmosphere.
History & Background (Dossier)
Until 940, the Glisten subsector was an isolated spur of the Imperial X-Boat network and a backwater for marginal officials of the Imperial bureaucracy.
In 941, District 268 was opened by decree of Margaret II and the Glisten subsector has since served as a base for the colonization and integration of the new territory.
The planet’s population is solely dependent upon its status as a research station and a colonization waypoint, all entirely owned and managed by the Imperial Ministry of Colonization. Various environmental domes contains the different environments that colonists might encounter.
There are only a few hundred Jonkeereen on Egypt, and they are solely involved with scientific studies, mostly on the suitability of their species for various planets. Sometimes relations between scientists and Jonkeereen become a bit strained because of the Jonkereen’s history with the Ministry. Most of these Jonkeereen originate on Melior/Glisten (Spinward Marches 1736), though a few are born on Egypt as well.
