Ukk is a mountainous planet with no permanent inhabitants. It could be a backup source of material for the SMX fleets. The planet's weather is not very hostile, as the star eliminates clouds pretty quickly.
In YE 35, the planet and star system was heavily reinforced and fortified by NMX forces after heavy losses at SC-4 to SMDIoN forces. It was the rallying point for NMX Fleet Commander Izmarhk'resh and the remaining NMX forces in the area. After a brief power struggle between Izmarhk'resh and Helszepont over command, Izmarhk'resh began fortifying and expanding his infrastructure to support the large, seemingly permanent presence.
Intelligence and Pacification Group analysis suggested that the NMX were probably going to operate independently from the rest of the NMX and SMX now that they had been cut off. Light raiding forces were probably the most likely attacks to worry about since they possessed few heavy capital ships and would not risk those by attacking Nepleslian systems which could be swiftly reinforced by elements from its fleets. Countermeasures and increased patrols were recommended to keep the NMX breakaways in check. No one, thus far, has suggested diplomacy.
Numerous scouting missions by the IPG into the system revealed an increase in the number of light warships in the system, suggesting that the NMX are continuing to fortify their positions with the aim of using hit and run raiding tactics to inconvenience the Imperium.
The NMX here are swiftly exploiting the system's abundant natural resources to expand their infrastructure.
