History and background[edit]

A long settled Vilani world, this planet exports luxury foodstuffs throughout this and adjacent subsectors. As with most worlds in Dagudashaag, its history goes back more than 6,000 years. However, unlike most, Namkigem has maintained a stable colony since its initial colonization and has always been an agricultural paradise.
