Orbiting closest to the Anoth sun, the small planet of Yalara is devoid of indigenous life. The lack of atmosphere coupled with the direct radiation and heat from the nearby sun have caused the planet's surface to be seared and bleak. Periodically, unstable geological plates just under the crust separate and allow magma to erupt and form volcanoes on its lifeless surface; these eruptions are usually accompanied by earthquakes of varying degrees.
In addition to the heat, radiation, and volcanic and seismic activity, the lack of an atmosphere has allowed any stellar object small enough to be pulled into the gravitational field of the planet to become a potential hazard. Evidences of small to medium meteoroids having impacted on the surface can be seen in many areas of the rocky terrain.
Despite the harsh surface conditions and geological instability, it is rumored that a fairly large naval base has been built into the planet and houses underground training facilities. Whether or not this is true or is simply misinformation is yet to be determined; it has been confirmed, however, that pirates have been active on the planet and in the sector for quite some time, and citizens should be cautious when traveling through the area.
