Ghane III before colonisation, an EoGaian world with a nitrogen/carbon dioxide atmosphere of around 0.8 bars. This represented a relatively easy target for the terraformation technology of the time.

Gaian Type world originally of Hyl Op culture (see here for more details). Flooded due to a terraformation failure during the civil war. Now aligned with the Solar Dominion.

Water-adapted clades such as merpeople, megapteras and enhanced dolphins now live in the shallow waters surrounding the new coastlines. Although most of the concrete-based structures have long vanished, sturdy stone-built structures often survive; most durable of all are certain diamondoid structures built in the last years of the Hyl Op culture
