History and background
The Katris system would be largely uninteresting were it not for the fact that a huge space battle occurred here during the Interstellar Wars era. The battle was fought on the edge of the system, close to the star’s Oort cloud.
Although no-one has been able to actually locate the site, lumps of wreckage and even whole sections of ships occasionally tumble into the system, taking up a cometary orbit round the star. These are worth a fortune on the collector’s market and are highly prized by historians and archaeologists. Oddly, all the wreckage recovered so far has been Vilani.
Katris's main export is powdered Khafi root, a prolific plant that has been known to grow to a height of 3m and spread to 8m from a single root. Powdered Khafi root, sold under the Katris ‘Pure Blend' label, has become a popular, if expensive stimulant drink sold throughout the Sector
