A heavily forested planet, Tami was used for little other than Star Army operations and training. Though some of the trees are harvested because of their general strength in building precious buildings, they are otherwise left alone. There are a few civilian colonies here. The Star Army of Yamatai's Ninth Fleet is headquartered here, and the planet was formerly the home of Origin Industries.
Tami was the site of a massive offensive by the Mishhuvurthyar in YE 28. The Star Army of Yamatai eventually pushed them back from the planet (see YSS Mikomi). In YE 31 it was captured by the NMX. The then-newly formed Ninth Fleet, which had just constructed its new headquarters on the planet, left behind a contingent of infantry soldiers who fought guerrilla war against the invaders until the world was retaken.
|Quote from Taisho Hokusai Akiyo The Hidden Fortress|
|“All of the infantry stationed at outlying installations have been informed that you are in command, Major,” Hokusai said, stopping to speak with him before she boarded the shuttle. “Send those Mishhuvurthyar foolish enough to stay after the fleet is gone to Jigoku — show them no mercy whether they be possessed citizens or monstrous abominations.” She looked out towards the complex’s mustering ground where Yamatai’s banner waived in the evening breeze. “I expect that to be here when I return, Akechi-san,” she told him, turning on a heel to enter the small craft that would take her to the fleet’s flagship, YSS Amagi, and the safety of a faster-than-light jump out of the fallen Tami system.|
Communications on the planet are now provided by a network of Emrys Satellites put into orbit in YE 36. In the middle of that year, the Ninth Fleet began construction of a new headquarters expansion built into the side of a canyon whose outside was large enough for a Urufu and other ships to easily fly through.
Tami is part of the PAINT mass transportation system and has a terminal operated by the Star Army of Yamatai. It has a flight to Amatsu-Yamatai, Planet Yamatai every two hours. Civilian cargo shipping is primarily provided by Trinary Star Shipping, which has storefronts in all of the planet's major cities.
