History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Aegir is a rich water world, part of the Near Boötes Cluster in Capella Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Solomani Confederation.

Non-canon: Colonized by Vilani dissidents during the First Imperium. In 2424 AD (-2094) a crew member from the merchant ship Dancer's Pride carried the Duskir Plague to Near Boötes. As the plague only affected Vilani, there were no problems until the ship docked at Aegir. Once discovered, a general quarantine was set up and the plague contained to the ship and a small starport.
