Emishuun supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This world has a research station engaged in the scientific pursuit of knowledge. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Sapphyre Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Emishuun, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Medenki.

History and background
The Emishuun system is the home to the Jansky-Missaadin radio astronomy center. Founded in 531 by the University of Libuka on Libuka (Zarushagar 2202) it is currently funded by grants from several universities in Dagudashaag and Zarushagar. The center conducts astographical studies of objects both within and outside the galaxy using their radiotelescope facilities. The largest is an orbiting reflector some 28 kilometers across. Telescopes scattered across the system can be linked by a meson comlink to form an interferometer network, an instrument with incredible resolution capabilities. Objects less than an AU across can be detected in nearby galaxies.
The most recent addition the JMRAC is Walsh station, a radiotelescope build on a planetoid some 400 AU from Emishuun's primary. The station, named after the Solomani discoverer of the gravitational lens effect, uses the gravity well of the primary star to lens radio signals and is currently conducting a detailed study of the center of our galaxy and its black hole center.
Travellers to Emishuun should be aware researchers require the system be as radio quiet as possible. Starships are forbidden to use broadcast communications or navigational radar within 100AU of any observing station.
