Additional Notes[edit]

Nusku appears on the Imperium game map. Like several Imperial worlds on that map, its name has an ancient Mesopotamian origin, although unlike most of the relevant worlds, the name is not Sumerian, but Akkadian. Nusku was a Babylonian/Assyrian god of fire and light. The same god was known as Gibil in Sumerian.
