History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A non-industrial world located in the Zeda Subsector of Dagudashaag.

According to records from the end of the First Imperium, Ushkhir possessed a standard atmosphere, and was colonized by early Solomani settlers.

  • When rediscovered after the Long Night, Ushkhir had fallen victim to some unknown disaster.
  • The initial survey team was shocked to discover the planet's atmosphere had almost completely vanished, severe seismic activity had completely altered the landmasses and caused most of the planetary oceans to seep into fissures deep beneath the surface.
  • The cause of the disaster is still unknown.
  • The Amec Trade Protectorate carried out a hostile takeover of the corporate government in 862, which has resulted in the planet's current political classification.
  • Today Ushkhir is a major source of heavy metals and has several moderately large underground mining settlements.
