Details

A lonely, underutilized system of the Mishhuvurthyar's former primary holdings. Inhabitable, but not very pleasant. The top soil is tough; it would be tough to farm from it, let alone mine.

History

Flarghrishimmi was first colonized by the Mishhuvurthyar around YE 26.

At some point the system was lost, but it was retaken in YE 291). In late YE 29, it was producing military resources for the Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX)2).

When the SMX departed in YE 30, the system was abandoned.

In YE 35, The Rok'Veru Offensive swept through the system, brushing aside the paltry defenders left in the system. The system was formally claimed for Nepleslia by Grand Admiral Charlie Coast. An initial presence of a Bulwark Multi-Role Star Base and four Rook platforms was established, along with a naval picket in the system consisting of four destroyers. Colonization plans were being considered, though as with most former NMX territories, a renaming was higher on the priority list. Plans to garrison a larger, more permanent military presence in the system were also on the table.

A month after Flarghrishimmi's capture, the system and primary planet were renamed Longwatch and was formally declared as a military outpost. It was formally renamed “Longwatch,” denoting its new status as a military outpost. The system now serves as the main military post in the region, coordinating with the nearby systems to ensure that the NMX forces at Ukk do not have a chance to break out.

More units were deployed to Longwatch and a more permanent presence was established in the system as well as on the planet itself.
