History and background[edit]

A system explored early in the Vilani’s first expansion into Dagudashaag, Shurkikhi has offered little to the Imperium since its old ore mines were worked out prior to the collapse of the Ziru Sirka. The class B starport stems from the use of Shurkikhi as a naval staging post.

During the Vilani Pacification Campaigns vessels passed from the Imau Cluster, moving to Andalusia (Dagudashaag 0810) before entering Gushemege Sector.

Recently the world has become the home of a number of Lancian artists of the Ultras movement on the extreme end of the group. The members of the Lancian colony have in effect been banned from operating in Lancian space due to the questionable activities of some of the artists in pursuance of their artistic aims.
