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.

History

In YE 30, the UX Series Star Systems were colonized and Cosmos Star Fortress was stationed near the Scrapyard system, which was referred to as UX-12. 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. The Yamatai Star Empire also placed a global communications network of Emrys Satellites into orbit that year.

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.

In YE 42, during the Kuvexian War, Scrapyard was attacked by the Kuvexian Military as part of the Kuvexian Advance of YE 421). Cosmos Star Fortress was destroyed.
