Scrapyard System

Scrapyard, formerly known as UX-12, was one of the UX Series Star Systems charted by Ketsurui Uesu during his departure from Central Yamatai. It is a strategic location on the outer rim of the Ketsurui Military Sector.

Its single, airless planet has been appropriated for use as a scrapyard for old starships. Confiscated civilian ships are also stored here, making the system somewhat akin to a police impound lot, but for spaceships rather than cars. In YE 32, a Frontier Starport was built on the surface so recycled materials could be more easily transferred. This eventually became the Sakura Fleet Depot.

This system is also host to Cosmos Star Fortress.

The Yamatai Star Empire placed a global communications network of Emrys Satellites into orbit in YE 36.

In YE 36, this planet became part of the PAINT public transportation system and has a Tenba that regularly visits and provides passenger flights to Shinjuku Starport on Hanako's World.

In YE 40, this system was targeted by the Kuvexian Military as part of a multi-pronged invasion. The YSS Sakura II led the Third Squadron in assisting in its defense.

:!: There are currently 24 Urufu-class Light Cruisers assigned to this system to defend it.
