Desolate (Cr 0608) is a nonindustrial fluid world.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Khouth Subsector of Corridor Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • This world has a nearby Imperial Way Station.

  • During the Long Night this world was named Khinukhin.

History: New Era[edit]

The small 1117 population inhabited a mostly automated orbiting starport, which quickly surrendered to the advancing Vargr.

  • The human staff was expelled to the Domain of Deneb, and the Irrgh Manifest Navy tried to convert the base into a naval storage facility.
  • A vampire ship blasted the station into debris in 1140, leaving a cloud of metal in geostationary orbit.
