This planet was the site of the crash landing of the Federation shuttle Kincardine (type-11). The stranded crew survived fourteen days on the planet before being rescued by 38th Fleet vessels.

Terrain night time view

Climate Hot and dry, grassland savannah terrain, interspersed with crater lakes. Averages 35-38° C during the day, drops to 21-24° C at night. Periodic inclement weather events where rainfall is boiling hot to touch and extended exposure can cause second or third degree burns.


This abandoned facility was located on the surface of the planet by the crashed Kincardine crew and served as their primary shelter for much of their stay. From the crew’s research, the facility had been without any living residents for approximately 162 years.

Rectangular shapes indicate there's a constructed facility entrance/exit roughly on the indicated wall. Irregular shapes indicate breaches.

The facility was built by a spacefaring humanoid species. They were warp-capable, but only just so. The settlers were previously a minority caste on their home planet and became the unfortunate victims of philosophical persecution. When the violence against them rose to critical levels, they took as many of their followers as possible and escaped the planet. The communications/sensors shield and an automated, orbital defense satellite network were implemented as defense mechanisms in case they were ever followed.

Some of the early crew logs also mention references to concern that they did not have sufficient population to keep their settlement going in perpetuity, but even if this was the case, it was not a primary problem. Their small group had fled only to avoid further retribution from the majority, not to establish a new civilization; they simply desired to be free. The last resident of the facility was named Koiya and lived there for six years in solitude. Her final fate is unknown, though it seems probable that she passed away within or near the facility itself.
