History and background[edit]

During the Rule of Man, many settlers on Daridura (Dagudashaag 1605) left to colonize Edaridur. While the difference between the names Daridura <New Desert Nome> and Edaridur <Not Desert Home> were obvious to Vilani, the subtleties of Vilani grammar and pronunciation were utterly lost on the Terrans who accidentally renamed both worlds Dardua.

When the IISS first surveyed the area they used the old Second Imperium navigational information as a basis and perpetuated the error. Despite the identical spelling each name is pronounced differently and thus both names have stuck.

Edaridur is governed by Naasirka, who maintain a vast automated chemical waste processing plant on the surface and a single starport in orbit. The facility deals with a wide range of substances, most of which are used in medicine or industry. The location of the site has caused outrage amongst environmental groups: Dardua is known across the sector for its rugged natural beauty, but in many areas the sensitive and delicate ecosystems have already been blighted by chemical spills and leakages. The local inhabitants blame the recent increase in cancer amongst its population on the presence of Naasirka’s plant.
