The Elenian System



  • SYSTEM NAME: Elenian
  • STAR NAMES: Elenia (Yellow mature star)
  • AGE: 4 billion years
  • GOVERNMENT: Rebel Squadrons/New Republic

    The Elenian System is one of those few miracles of known space, a system rich in natural beauty where nature has worked to please the eye. Boasting three habitable worlds, this system was a prize beyond military reason. The gravitational fluxuations created by Merlin, the water world, protect the system from direct attack.

    First discovered by the Hyperspace Explorers at the dawn of the Old Republic, the system was a haven in an uncaring region. Long dead cities and ancient ruins are proofs of the former glory the system held, however, no sentient life remained and the ruins are long forgotten. Only after the Cadrel Expanse Conflict and under the protection of the Rebel Squadrons has colonization of these planets commenced once again, and a slowly growing, but flourishing, population and commerce has been the result.

    PRIMARY MILITARY SYSTEM FACILITIES


  • Gamma Infantry Defense Base (Caelum)

    The following sections provide the physical and social characteristics for each of the significant planetary bodies in the Elenian System:

    Caelum



    Caelum is a world so rich in natural beauty that it is often compared to such amazing worlds as Arcadia, Avalon, and former Alderaan. Crystal blue waters meet dazzling snow capped mountains, shimmering lakes are intertwined within vast green forests, and perfect blue skies are the norm.

    It was here that the first Hyperspace Explorers chose colonization. The ruins of their ancient city can still be found on the southern continent, now meshed together with the world's vegetation. The serenity of the landscape, and majesty of the old stone, are said to be so captivating that they have influenced even the coldest of Dark Jedi to stop in awe. Growing population centers include a reconstruction site around the old Hyperspace Explorer ruins and Bathar City.

    Excelsior




    Excelsior receives its name from a long lost clan of heroic naval admirals. Initial settlers attempted to cultivate and work the land into a major trading post in the Outer Rim. While internal trade sustained the world, lack of contact with outside systems soon doomed the early inhabitants over time. Like Caleum, Excelsior displays lost ruins that give all a glimpse of the worlds past; mostly in the form of monuments and the recently uncovered Hall of Warriors where the fallen heroes lie.

    Not quite a match in aesthetics as Caleum, Excelsior does have many similar traits, such as vast oceans, and varying terrains that can please most species perfectly. It has a certain simplistic draw to it, gathering those with a will to work to receive the hidden treasures. Mining operations have commenced, and a growing number of agricultural communities have spurred.

    Merlin




    Merlin, often referred to as the Water World, is the final spectacle within the Elenian System. With a crust of solid rock, the planet is covered entirely by water, and this ocean planet is filled with sea dwelling creatures. However, there are areas where the floor and sea point are separated by a few feet, creating atoll reefs, but these are few and far between.

    While these conditions may make land dwelling species find the world unattractive, Calamari and other sapient sea species may prove colonization here very possible.
