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.

Flag of the Yamatai Star Empire

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 system is also host to Cosmos Star Fortress.

From YE 33 to YE 37 Yamatai allowed Freespacers the ability to recycle to old ship hulls as a means of showing goodwill towards them. Freespacers were able to use the hulls to build ships like the "Divine Comedy" State-Issue Ayame. This program ended at the start of YE 37 due to lack of participation and concerns that the ships might fall into the hands of the Independent Worlds League.

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.

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