Sakura No Me

Sakura No Me is a planet in the UX-21 star system. It is claimed by the Yamatai Star Empire. It is habitable but has high gravity and heavy radiation on the surface. Due to high levels of sulfur dioxide (over 5,000 times the recommended short-term exposure guidelines for humans), a breath mask is strongly recommended for most known species.

After The Freespacer Genocide, the Yamatai Star Empire, knowing that Freespacers could thrive on this planet while most other species would not, attempted to turn this world into a reservation for captured survivors by placing them here with colony supplies, but the vast majority of them balked at the idea of staying on a planet and they left in a mass exodus in YE 31, leaving this planet all but uninhabited. Despite this, the planet became part of the PAINT public transportation system in YE 36 and has a Tenba that regularly visits and provides passenger flights to Shinjuku Starport on Hanako's World and also has full communication services provided by a network of Emrys Satellites.

In YE 35 the Scientific Studies Service (SSS) deployed a Ke-P6-01a Bisen Lighthouse on the surface of the planet at the request of the Star Army of Yamatai.

Abandoned Colony

Off the West coast of the Northern Continent, there is a large island where the Yamatai Star Empire set up its colony site intended for the Freespacers. The basic city is still there and intact, complete with fusion generators, thousands of miles of underground utility tunnels, Water plants, and a starport.
