HAST Geography Coordinate: U-6, Wild Space HyperLane: N/A Climate: A very weak atmosphere results in not much climate change on the planet. The planet is very young compared to most, and thus the combination of volcanic soot and the chill of space make for a rather unpleasant atmosphere for most living beings. Terrain: Flat, cracked stone and dust over much of the surface. Random mountains (many of which are active volcanoes) seem to jut out of the crust. Some water sources such as massive lakes and rivers, though not as much as most life-sustaining planets. Rotation: 40 GSH. Satellites: -One small moon that is really more of a glorified asteroid. Named Farkled, supposedly because some of the first inhabitants used to say "If that thing decides to drop on us, we're well and truly farkled." -Hast Shipyards Inhabitants: None Resources: Heavy Metals Some Water Sulferous/Acidic Chemicals Civilization Government: None Culture: None Technology: Hast Shipyards History: Hast was a planet first discovered and colonized around 11,987 BBY. Colonists looking to vacate the inner reaches of the galaxy to escape the wars of the earlier years of the republic turned their attention to the far outer rim and even the wild space beyond in search of a peaceful refuge. Unfortunately, the colonists found nothing more than a young, angry planet with an incredibly inhospitable atmosphere and a deadly disposition. Most colonization attempts had to be abandoned. However, word reached some of those in the upper echelons of the Inner Rim states of a young planet, known only to a precious few, with deposits of heavy metals, out in the middle of nowhere where no one needed or wanted to go. Some unknown group chose the planet as the location for the first of a series of secret shipyards where the sect would construct ships to bolster their fleets. The shipyards were completed and produced a number of ships, but as the Inner Rim planets began to cease their wars and unite to expand the Republic to it's current state, it was eventually decided that Hast was simply too far from the core worlds to be of logical use. Shipping supplies and materials out into the far reaches of space was dangerous, time consuming, and costly. The yards were eventually abandoned, the satellite stations left in a protective orbit behind the single moon Farkled in case the original owners chose to return at some point in the future. Of course, they never would return, and the shipyards would lie there, dormant and forgotten.
