Polis Massa was once a desert planet with a multitude of mining colonies located on the surface. This planet was also home to the ancient race of the Eellayin, which the Polis Massans, the current inhabitants of the planet, believe to be their ancestors. The Eellayin were thought to live in underground cities such as Wiyentaah, the capital of this ancient race. However, long ago, a mysterious cataclysm destroyed the world and now, all that is left is a collection of lazily floating barren asteroids, which are remote and hidden from most of the Galaxy. The asteroids have a very strong gravitational pull, which would be harmful to those who wish to walk on their surface without the proper equipment or protection. Polis Massa is now a small, remote Archaeological Research settlement and has little to do with the more populated areas of the galaxy. However, these airless, barren asteroids are home to the strange and silent Polis Massan. Functioning, in recent history, as a remote archaeological research settlement, Polis Massa has little to do with the more populated areas of the galaxy.
