The Satha is Galatea's whale, but land-going as well, for these mammoth creatures will come to land along the shores of the islands, and occasionally may even be found aground in inland coves and lagoons. The only xenological study done of them would indicate that they may be sentient, but virtually nothing native stands a chance against the great Satha. The original study made the mistake of assuming that the Satha is uncommunicative, whereas, in fact, they are willing to make contact through any means possible. Indeed, the Satha have a peculiar understanding of Galatea's seismic troubles, and given proper study of their language, the Satha may prove invaluable information sources and on-the-spot assistants for future mining and construction operations on Galatea. The Satha have little love for the Asaii, and may be seen fighting them over its ocean carrion.
Galatea is named for its vast oceans and storms. Discovered in 439 by independent explorer Mathias Farnha, the planet possesses over 5000 islands which are mostly unstable due to geologic "tides" in the planet's crust. Though rich in minerals and possibly some heavy metals, mining is virtually impossible because of the violent activity of the faulting crust.
