Touring the Galaxy: Thanium Worlds


Alzar System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Alzar

An arid world and home of the green reptilian Alzarian humanoids, Alzar was discovered by the Galactic Republic early in its existence. However, over the centuries, Alzar shifted hands during the major galactic conflicts, coming under Mandalorian control during the Mandalorian Wars, then the Sith during Darth Revan’s Jedi Civil War, remaining in Sith control until the culmination of the New Sith Wars.


After returning to Republic control, Alzar would come under Separatist control during the Clone Wars, and Imperial control during the Galactic Civil War. Following the death of Emperor Palpatine, Alzar was invaded by the Stenax and most of the Alzarian population was massacred. Alzar remained neutral during the New Republic’s reign and the Yuuzhan Vong War, until they returned to Sith control under Darth Krayt’s empire.


Barundi System (S-5)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Barundi

Barundi was a jungle world home to the humanoid Barundi. At some point early in galactic history, most of the Barundi were relocated to another planet, rendering the planet a remote world that saw little galactic traffic.


Draukyze System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Draukyze

Draukyze was a remote terrestrial world that was absorbed into Xim’s empire circa 25,100 BBY. The planet fell into obscurity until the Galactic Civil War, when it joined the fledging New Republic and attacked by Imperial forces.


Elerion System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Elerion

§ at least two unnamed moons/satellites

Elerion was a world of lush rainforests and vast oceans, coming under Imperial jurisdiction during the Galactic Civil War, and utilized as a resort world for casinos and other forms of entertainment.


Falang System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: Falang

· Orbits:

o Falang Minor

A cold, rainy, mountainous world, Falang Minor became a fortress world for the Galactic Republic shortly after the Tionese War, circa 23,900 BBY. The planet was also used by the Jedi to monitor the nearby Tion sectors.


Galidraan System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Galidraan

An arctic alpine of vast forests, Galidraan was originally conquered by Xim and absorbed into his empire. Following the collapse of the empire and the birth of the Galactic Republic, Galidraan became a minor world in the galactic body until the end of the Clone Wars, when it came under Imperial control.


Felucia System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: Felix

· Orbits:

o Coccia

§ one unnamed moon/satellite

o Brembo

o Albata Ing

o Felucia

§ two unnamed moons/satellites

o Farasu

§ nine unnamed moons/satellites

o Yamime

§ 32 unnamed moons/satellites

o Tsutai

§ 13 unnamed moons/satellites

o Imei

§ three unnamed moons/satellites

Coccia and Brembo were arid, scorched worlds teeming with lava lakes and tributaries, and barren mountain ranges that housed volcanoes. Likewise, the third orbit in the system, Albata Ing, was also a desolate world, despite not being as volcanically active. Conversely, Imei was a barren ice world that lacked an ecosystem. Also in the outer orbits, Farasu, Yamime, and Tsutai were gas giants.


Felucia was the primary world in the system, and homeworld of the amphibious, reptilian Felucian species. Early in the planet’s history, another reptilian species – the Gossam – attempted to colonize the world. The vast fungal jungles and humid, tropical environment made it nearly impossible for even the Gossam to fully colonize the world, and as such the world only held small resort settlements.


Felucia was absorbed into Xim’s empire around 25,126 BBY, until it collapsed decades later. Felucia slipped into obscurity for millennium, until the Commerce Guild took control of the planet in 700 BBY. Local resistance groups tried to repel the guild, viewing their communal connection to the Force and the planet’s ecosystem as coming under threat. Around 53 BBY, Felucia became a full member of the Galactic Republic.


Felucia became a key Separatist world during the Clone Wars; however, the planet’s ecosystem was severely damaged from the various battles between the belligerents. As a result, many of the Felucians teetered close to the dark side due to the damage caused to their Force connection with nature. Following the Clone Wars, Felucia was temporarily a shelter for Separatist resistance cells, until the Galactic Empire occupied the world and crushed any opposition.


In the later years of the Galactic Civil War, the New Republic would liberate the planet from the clutches of the Empire, however the planet was occupied by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy. Following that galactic calamity, the Ithorians would migrate to the planet and help revitalize its ecosystem.


Kadril System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Kadril

Kadril was an irregularly shaped terrestrial world, primarily colonized for ore extraction. In 4 ABY, all but the reptilian Kadrillian populations were wiped out from a bombardment during the Stenax Massacres.


Mossak System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Mossak

Originally conquered by Xim’s empire, Mossak was a remote world that saw little galactic traffic.


Phoebus System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Phoebus

Phoebus was a remote world that saw brief attention by archaeologists for its fossil remains circa 3,640 BBY.


Shaltin System (S-6)

· Sun/Star: Shaltin

· Orbits: none

Shaltin was an empty system used as a waypoint along a regional hyperlane route.


Sikkem System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o three unnamed planets (presumably Sikkem I-III)

o Sikkem IV

Sikkem was a remote system that saw little galactic traffic.


Sooma System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Sooma

Homeworld of the insectoid Soomans, Sooma was a tranquil world of rolling grasslands and rippling lakes. During the Galactic Civil War, the planet was occupied by the Empire.


Tahlboor System (R-5)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Tahlboor

§ one (formerly two) unnamed moon/satellite

Tahlboor was a minor terrestrial world of mesas, grasslands, and oceans. Homeworld of the Tahlboorean species of humanoids, Tahlboor remained neutral through much of its history, as the two subsects of Tahlboorean civilization constantly warred with one another. At some point in their history, a space station was used to destroy one of the moons during such a feud. Come the time of the Clone Wars, the planet sided with the Separatists, presumably putting aside old hatreds. During the Galactic Civil War, Tahlboor was an Imperial world.


Thanium System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Thanium

Thanium was a minor world in the sector, conquered by Xim during his reign. Once Xim’s empire collapsed, Thanium became a remote planet that saw little galactic traffic.


Tharkos System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o one unnamed planet

o Tharkos

§ one unnamed moon/satellite

Tharkos was a barren, terrestrial planet utilized by the Galactic Empire as a minor manufacturing world. During the Galactic Civil War, millions died in 5 ABY during the Stenax Massacres.


Tobali System (R-6)

· Sun/Star: Tor

· Orbits:

o Rhen Var

o Bardo Verwen asteroid belt

o Mash Shareo

§ 12 unnamed moons/satellites

o Dungal Lem

§ 24 unnamed moons/satellites

Little is known about the origins of the system’s asteroid belt, some speculating it is the remains of a destroyed planet. The two outer worlds, Mash Shareo and Dungal Lem, were gas giants, their moons also widely unexplored.


Homeworld of the extinct Rhen Varite, Rhen Var was originally a fertile world teeming with wildlife and a thriving civilization. It is unclear if the planet underwent its cataclysmic upheaval that transformed the planet into a barren ice world and led to the extinction of the Rhen Varite before the Infinite Empire conquered the planet, but eventually the Rakatan would absorb the world into their empire.


In 3,986 BBY, Rhen Var became the hermitage of the Jedi outcast, Ulic Qel-Droma. Centuries later, the planet was the site of a fierce battle between Jedi and Sith forces in the Great Galactic War. Rhen Var would slip into obscurity for a few millennia, until it became a battleground between Republic and Separatist forces during the Clone Wars.


Following the Separatists defeat, Rhen Var came under Imperial jurisdiction, being the site of skirmishes between Imperial and Rebel forces during the Galactic Civil War. During the Yuuzhan Vong’s invasion of the galaxy, the extragalactic species occupied the planet.


Vornax System (S-5)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Vornax

§ two unnamed moons/satellites

Vornax was a barren, rustic world utilized as a droid manufacturing location during the Clone Wars. Come the Galactic Civil War, the planet was desolate, its facilities abandoned, and the planet used by bounty hunters, mercenaries, and criminals as a refuge to escape Imperial imprisonment.
