History and background
History shows a dispute arose between the miners and Makhidkarun over working conditions that ended with the miners declaring themselves independent and the world an open market.
Within a week the entire resident population was dead. An unknown toxic gas had been released into the life support system. 205 thousand people, mostly women and children, died in prolonged agony. The miners that had been off-station at the time blamed Makhidkarun. Makhidkarun security claimed to have found evidence the attack had been carried out by Makhadu, a miners separatist movement prevalent at the time. Whatever the truth, Mendadii was finished. On the express instructions of the surviving miners, the settlement was sealed, the bodies left where they had fallen.
In 202, Mendadii port was visited by the IISS. The scouts discovered the sealed environment had freeze dried the corpses. The scouts renamed the system Tomb and gave it an Amber Zone classification out of respect for the dead.
Point of Interest: MacKhan World
Then in 988, Simeon MacKhan of MacKhan Entertainments, arranged to buy the system. The official responsible for the sale was later charged with corruption. MacKhan, however, had already obtained the system and had immediately began work on changing the port into a massive theme park. The corpses were sealed in plastic and put on display. Entire buildings were composed of human remains. The whole asteroid became a giant horror tri-vee studio, filled with real corpses.
Since its official opening in 997, almost a billion tourists have visited the theme world. The park is run by a conglomerate of businesses who have bought the franchise rights to various of the entertainments. Descendants of the original settlers are currently suing MacKhan Entertainments for desecration.
