Planetary Info[edit]

Hobbs is a dry world whose native lifeforms are confined to the vast underground cave systems. These caves have their own extensive ecosystem, with the Takooma at the top of the pyramid. These apelike mammals often come into conflict with the AFFS troops stationed on the world. The AFFS uses the caves as a giant warehouse, storing supplies and materials for use by units in the Capellan March. The Takooma see this as an intrusion, and have been engaging in a guerrilla war against the humans.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Hobbs was the headquarters of the XXXVII Corps (Star League) prior to the fall of the Star League.[31]
