This planet contains all the known ecosystems that are found on temperate planets, and has many forms of flora and fauna. Its abundance of life has given rise to plans to colonize the system, but galactic events have put those on hold for now.
This planet has fairly extensive, but deeply buried, deposits of Ardanium in its crust. Mining them is also made difficult because most are underneath the ice, oceans, and jungle areas of the planet. Because their size is yet undetermined, only the most daring miners will invest in such an expensive and dangerous task.
Historically, this planet was first one explored when this system was discovered by the Old Republic. This planet is also the reason the explorer ship crashed into the sun, because as it went to hyperspace it clipped the planets gravity well and was then thrown into the systems sun.
150 years later, the Empire discovered the system, and built a base on Morvogdine. Since they couldn’t afford to have another garrison here, they built and extensive automated defense system. It comprised many satellite laser batteries and millions of small tracking satellites that explode against the hulls of ships. So far, this has worked well to keep unwanted visitors away, but it also has cost the Empire a number of smaller ships that failed to use the proper codes.
