75% covered in ice and with the majority of the rest one large volcanic belt Nixor IV for the most part remains unexplored other than the standard planetary scans conducted by the Galactic Exploration Division.
Nixor IV possesses and extensive network of caves and underground tunnels believed to have been made by hand. The Institution of Galactic Research believe that these tunnels run against the natural formation of the crust. The truth of the Nixor Caves remain an undiscovered mystery.
The vast volcanic ridge slightly to the east of the vertical meridian contains a large majority of dormant volcanos. However, Mount Torlis, by far the largest and most active volcano on the planet remains in a constant state of eruption spewing larva down its western face into the great icefields. The thick plumes of smoke from Mount Torlis is visible from orbit.
What wildlife there is on the planet is sparse and far between and the only vegetation is the single massive forest that rises suddenly from the ice fields and continues up into the volcanic mountain ranges. With constant gravitational shifts, its erratic climate and seasons Nixor IV is still in a of constant flux as it creates and moulds, reshaping itself. These is no set plans for colonisation at this stage as Nixor IV remains a planet in its early stage of birth.
