The closest planet to the star, Eberon I is naturally hot and inhospitable to all but the most sturdy of species. The entire planet is covered in desert and rock. Pockets of craters line the surface where meteors have impacted. Actually it has been noted by one surveyor that a lack of atmosphere makes it very likely that the surface of Eberon I changes constantly as any meteor, great or small, can impact and leave its mark upon the planet. The most notable impact is a crater nearly 150km in diameter within the northern area of the planet. Some theorists believe that a city was once hidden within the confines of the crater, but there is no evidence to support such an idea.
The lack of atmosphere makes Eberon I a useless planet for most enterprising companies. One or two mining companies from the Old Republic era had considered the possibility of setting up facilities to investigate the rock and craters for resources. All ideas were scrapped shortly after their initiation as it was determined the cost for living arrangements for workers was not worth it.
Eberon I supports no animal life forms and is devoid of plant life. There is no evidence of any previous settlements, although one or more of the craters could be the result of crashed space ships or satellites. With almost no strategic or economic value, Eberon I is currently on the list of planets to be ignored due to dangerous and unsafe conditions for humans.
